out to the country side were it is unlikely they
will return. Once a raccoon has been trapped, they
learn quick and will never enter a trap again. If
you have an Albino Raccoon or a family of raccoons
in your attic, best thing to do is wait till the
young are old enough to travel and then install a one way doorof wire mesh over the entrance to the
den so they can get out but not back in. Make sure

parent raccoons will literally tear
your roof apart trying to get back into the den
inside your roof!

Take care to properly seal any holes you need to put into your roof to avoid water leakage. Even if there are areas were they have not entered, cover these with wire mesh as well. Next you will have to deal with any damage they have caused inside and arrange for these repairs caused by the Albino Raccoons to be completed.
