What to do about a raccoon under the porch - If you have a raccoon living under your porch this can be a real challenge. Often you cannot completely cover the porch so keeping it from coming back can take some effort and gray matter to make that happen. It can be a real challenge to say the least.
Before we talk about getting it to stay away, the first step is trying to get it out from under your porch. This can be a challenge as well. Raccoons are nocturnal animals, so they are asleep during the day. The best chance to get rid of them is when it is starting to get dark, because they are waking up and getting ready to leave, so it is time to spring into action at this point.
You want that raccoon to come out from under the porch, so the first step is to give it reason to do so. Raccoons like to go where they are unnoticed, so begin by doing some things that will scare it. Shine a large light under your porch directly on the raccoon. Also make a lot of noise, like play music loud, or have your dog bark. This should make the raccoon nervous and get it scurrying.
Before you do these things make sure that you have covered your skin and that you have on gloves and a mask. You do not want to get bit or scratched should the raccoon do the unexpected and run directly at you.
Once you have it out then the next steps are to keep it out. This can be done in a few ways. One of the most effective is to use some kind of repellant under the porch that will deter the raccoon away. Predator urine is a sure fire way to do so, because instinctually the raccoon is afraid of this, but the smell may be a bit overwhelming. This may keep your neighbors and family away as much as it does the raccoon.
There are commercial repellants you can buy or you can make your own that can be effective. These usually have a very small impact on keeping raccoons off your property, but when focused on one specific area they can be very effective. These repellants use irritating products like hot sauce or jalapeno peppers that irritate the raccoon and cause it to stay away. When the raccoon is run off put some of this under the porch and it should be quite effective.
