:) I have 3 raccoons in my chimney., It is a 3 sided brick chimney with
:) cellotex on the house side. The trapper I contacted usually smokes them
:) out..but he won't use fire with the cellotex. it is all chewed up and
:) they are nesting in it.
:) I have 3 rectangular clay pipes at the top of the chimney. one has a
:) cap...this is apparently the flue from the furnace and hot water
:) heater. the other 2 go down about 6 feet and stop, leaving a wide open
:) space. I need to cap the 2 clay pipes, but must be sure the 'coons are
:) out before I do it. Wildlife people say a momma coon will tear a roof
:) apart if she has babies in there. I have listened with a stethoscope
:) and dont hear any baby noises.
:) Any ideas on how to encourage them to leave and stay out while I get
:) the caps put on?
:) Humane society suggests loud rap music and a strobe light lowered down
:) on a long extension...I cant afford a strobe.
:) I need to repair a few loose brick while I am up there. I have the
:) caulk recommended by the home store. Any tips? I know I will need to
:) clean the area..is sweeping good enough or is an acid cleaning with
:) muriatic needed?
:) The concrete cap that is set at an angle that surrounds the chimney is
:) spalled badly, and I will need to replace it. Is the premixed
:) ceramic-plastic mix a good thing to use there?
:) Thanks for any and all help. Anybody got any good recepies for racoon
They will be leaving the chimney to feed...find where they travel and
place a raccoon trap baitd with sardines. I would not just take it for
a ride and let it go, you can spread canine distemper to healthy animals
in the wild if yours is effected. You probably can find an animal
rescue place to take them in for observation before release
Oh, if only Noah would of been a bit more wise,
