What to do about a cage-shy (hard to trap) raccoon - So you have a problem with a raccoon coming onto your property or living somewhere inside your home. You have set up a trap and added some prime bait to attract that raccoon. Now all you have to do is wait and he or she will walk right into it and you will trap your raccoon, have it hauled away and your problem is solved. Everything is just perfect.
It would seem that way, but you soon notice that night after night your raccoon is avoiding your trap. You may even find that it is coming close to it, but not entering. You see little raccoon tracks, but it refuses to enter. Your raccoon is a little smarter than you thought.
Sometimes raccoons learn what traps are, especially if they have been trapped before. There is an instinctual mechanism that tells it to avoid areas that could be hazardous to it and, let's face it, a trap does not look like a very inviting place to go. If you find that your raccoon is avoiding a trap then here are some suggestions on how to get it to overcome its fear.
The first place to start is by understanding that if there are other places to go for food it is going to take it. If you have an open garbage can, a garden, pet dish or other place where food can be procured, then you can be sure that your trap is not going to be the place it goes to. This means you have to eliminate all other sources of food first. The food in your trap has to be the only place it can go.
Also consider that the location of the trap may be in a bad place. If the raccoon has been finding food in your garbage cans and you have your trap near the garage, 100 feet from the garbage cans, why would it go there? Move the trap near where it will get trapped.
Put debris around the trap so it does not look as nefarious as it may seem. If you move it near the garbage cans or near the shed, but tree branches over it, rocks, or other materials that are common to the location of where the trap is sitting. The raccoon may see this as just another piece of the landscape and will likely be more apt to walk into the trap then, and your problem is solved.
