It's really tough to get rid of racoons. I live near a forested area. Racoons had terrorized several houses in my neighbourhood. We had tried several times to get them away. But sadly, each attempt was waste of time. There are several places for them to hide. They'll never go away completely. So we decided to call for animal removal services in Hamilton. Last month, I heard a scratching noise under my deck and I discovered a whole family of them, including babies. They were trying to make an opening in the corner of the deck and have completely destroyed the floorboards. I got them out initially by dumping ammonia. Eventually, they all came out and I sealed all of the entry points. However, they kept coming back and tried to rip up the floorboards. Still, they are doing tons of damages. They have fixed the deck as their home. Can an electric fence keep them away? Of course, clearing out racoons completely is not an easy task and need professional help. But I would like to get some tips to avoid their nuisance.
