How to get raccoons out of the chimney - Raccoons are little critters that will get themselves into just about anything. It does not matter what is the location, if they can figure out how to get in they will do it. Sheds, wood piles, old cars, and attics are just a few of the places that you will find these critters gaining access to.
One of their favorite places to find a home to rest in can be your chimney. As odd as this seems, your chimney is very much like a hollowed out tree, making it the ideal secluded place to build a home and maybe even have babies.
If it is summer time than you can be sure that they will be even more enticed to live there. Think about the fact that you don't have any activity going on in your chimney during the summer time. The vent is closed for many people from middle spring to late fall, making it a place that is full of inactivity. What an ideal place for a nest.
That is what the raccoon thinks, but obviously you do not want to have these creatures in your chimney. Not only does this make it so you can't use your fireplace when you want to, but raccoons carry a great many diseases and parasites and the last thing you need is a bunch of animal waste dripping into your home via the vent. They must go!
Before we talk about what to do, let's start with what not to do. You do not want to start a fire to get rid of it. This will likely start the raccoon on fire, and if that happens you are going to have a panicked, fiery raccoon shooting down your chimney and into your home. No one wants that.
Most recommend using a trap at the top of your chimney. You simply install this at the opening of your chimney and as the raccoon steps into the trap it will get captured and you can simply take the raccoon somewhere to let it go or call animal control to come and get it. These traps are all one-way, meaning the raccoon can get in but not get out.
If there are babies in your chimney, then you will need to hire an animal control specialist to come out and remove them. They are not going to be able to crawl up your chimney until they are older, and there is no sense waiting for them to drop more waste into your fire place.
If you have animals in your house, it's important that you hire a company that will do the job correctly. We do a complete job from start to finish, for a permanent solution to your San Jose pest control wildlife problem.
