Will repellents get a raccoon out of the chimney? - Many people don't really think about this, but your chimney can make the perfect place for a raccoon to build a home. While you may be enjoying the pleasures of your home, even just a few feet from where the raccoon is at, the raccoon is also enjoying the pleasures of your home. A chimney is a dark location, that is quite secluded, and for most of the year you are not using your chimney, meaning it is a safe place for the raccoon to live. This is why so many of these critters find it a great place to live.
Of course, having a raccoon in your chimney is not a good situation for you at all. These animals carry a lot of diseases and parasites, and the last thing you want is raccoon waste building up in your chimney, waiting to be released when you open the flume in your fire place. Yuk is the operative word.
Most realize that having a raccoon in their chimney is not safe, and have looked into different options to try to get rid of them. One of those options has been to use raccoon repellant. These are commercial or homemade products that can annoy or irritate a raccoon enough that it will flee from a location, never to return.
In open areas these repellants are usually quite ineffective. It takes a lot of the repellant to work to keep raccoons off of your property and one rain storm and your defense is gone. This means you are having to reapply the repellant over and over again, with minimal, if any, results.
Your chimney is a different situation however. This is an enclosed space where you do not have to worry about the elements. So does repellant work in the chimney?
The answer is yes and no. It is true that through the use of repellants you can rid yourself of the beast. This is done most effectively at night when it is dark. Raccoons are nocturnal creatures, so you want them to run when they would feel safer to do so.
To use the repellant you must put it into your fire place, directly below the vent area. Do not open the vent, simply let the fumes do their magic. This can scare the raccoon away. Do not put the repellant down the chimney. This may startle the raccoon, who will only take a few seconds to get out of the chimney. That means you may not have very much time to get away before a panicked raccoon comes your direction.
