Secure fitting lids should be kept on waste receptacles and trash cans in order to keep raccoons getting in your trash from gaining access. To keep raccoon out of pet food, your pets should be fed during daylight hours and any leftovers removed immediately. Also water bowls should be emptied or taken in at night. Food should never be intentionally left out for wild animals. Especially if you suspect you may have raccoons in your yard or living under decks or storage buildings near your home.
In the urban areas of Kentucky where raccoons become so numerous that they are a serious nuisance, they must be excluded or removed by a raccoon removal and control specialist. Since raccoons are classified as furbearers, a trapping license or a KY Nuisance Wildlife Control Operator license is required to remove raccoons. Always ensure you or your Wildlife Control Technician has the proper licensing and permits required by the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife. In urban areas, trapping with baited cage traps is the safest way to remove nuisance raccoons. There are no federally registered chemicals to control raccoons. Approved chemical repellents have not been found to be effective. You should never attempt to trap or remove a wild animal unless you have the necessary training and license to do so.
