As the raccoons are spread in large areas of major cities of USA and other European and Asian countries there are a lot of animal control systems available at affordable costs. However trapping raccoons at home can save you some hundred bucks. Raccoons are there in the city for one main and very basic thing and that is food. For trapping raccoons there are some useful baits that you can use such as watermelon, sweet-corn, honey and some fishes.
You can easily get a trap that can be used to trap raccoons in the house. All you have to do is keep the bait inside or near the trap depending upon the trap type. The baits mentioned here can be used to attract and capture the raccoons easily. Entry holes are the ideal place to set the trap. As the raccoons are smart yet powerful animal they can escape the trap with giving the trap a smack. So make sure that you are placing some small but enough weight on or around the trap.
There are generally two type of the traps available in the market to catch the raccoons which are the one door and second one is the two door trap. While most trapping scenarios it is seen that the trapped raccoon is a young pub. The reason behind this is the female raccoon finds a place to give birth to the pubs in some hidden place. And when you try to catch the raccoon the adult female mom get escaped leaving behind the young and new born babies which are comparatively low on power and experience.
However there are few major types of the traps that are available out there such as Body clamping traps which are the double spring loaded traps these traps can be settled near the holes made by raccoons. Then there are Paw Hold traps which as the name suggest grabs the paws of the raccoons with a clamp. This is somehow the pain-giving type of the trap used by professional fur animal trappers.

Cage traps are the most common type of the traps which are used mostly in trapping most animals out there from rats to lions.
