  • raccoons troubling me

    Hi,

    So very recently - about 2 days ago - while working on my yard outside I heard some major tapping inside my roof. I live in a townhouse attached to 4 other units. Today I heard it again while in my room and I know whatever they are, they are running the entire length of the block of 4 townhouses.

    I am right in the middle and don't think that they are living in my section of the attic per se. My neighbor next to me also has heard it but doesn't seem that concerned. I have read a lot of nasty things about these raccoons and I want to get rid of them. I am thinking to call a raccoon removal service from Hamilton but do you guys know about the charges for it?

    How would you approach asking your neighbors to chip in to fix it? especially if they know you'll do it anyways without them paying? We recently got new neighbors that moved into the corner house and that's where most of the activity is. They don't seem overall friendly.

    Any thoughts on this?

    Wouldn't your association be responsible for fixing it?

      You could call your Provincial wildlife department, and they may be able to suggest who to contact. If the townhomes are part of an homeowner's association, they should be responsible. This is something you won't want to ignore, and once removed, where ever they got in needs to be repaired. Payment is a real issue, and I have no ideas although the removal service may be able to provide some material that would convince skeptics of the need to remove them, and the damage that they can do.

        Yeah! I am also thinking the same but I don't think they will be taking the responsibility. I have to do that myself.

          I will get in contact with the wildlife department. But I think my neighbors should also take some responsibility and try to get rid of it.

            I agree but thereís not much you can do if they donít care. Are you sure its raccoons and not rats?
