Help with removing racoons from our soffits
These raccoons have pulled part of the vinyl soffit away and have gained access to the soffit. I hear them running back and forth before dusk. I would imagine that it is the mother and babies. She might be taking them out at night, and them bringing them back there to sleep during the day. I don't want to hurt them in any way, and cannot afford to hire a professional. We need to determine if they are there during the daytime, and find a way to remove them and permanently close off the space where they have torn the vinyl away. I would imagine that we have to put something behind the vinyl which will keep them out. Squirrels have been in there before, too, so this has been an ongoing problem. This area is at the second story of our house, and it is pretty high, so we are going to have to be careful how we do this. Any help would be appreciated.
