Raccoon Eviction Fluid
Raccoons are a real pest. They ruin your things, they eat your food, and they even carry plenty of diseases. What’s worse is that they can sometimes decide to build dens in your home, and are impossible to remove afterwards. Near-impossible at any rate. Thanks to a little something called raccoon eviction fluid.
What Is Raccoon Eviction Fluid?
Raccoon eviction fluid is a natural repellent. It’s meant to be used on raccoons who’ve already made themselves at home in your attic, and who don’t seem to want to move or leave. It’s particularly effective if the raccoons are in a tough to reach the spot, and you can’t get to them to remove them by hand. Such as inside a wall.
What Is It Made of?
You’ve probably heard the expression “fighting fire with fire”. Well, in this case, you fight raccoons with raccoons! Raccoon eviction fluid is made of raccoons. More precisely, it’s made of the urine and gland excretions of a male raccoon.
How Does It Work?
Many animals in the wild are keen on only having their own offspring survive. As a result, they’ll kill all children that aren’t their own. Raccoons are no different. Male raccoons want all the resources to go to their own children, so they’ll kill a female’s litter if they aren’t his. This affects the female raccoon and causes her to enter another mating cycle to give birth to the male’s children.
Obviously, the female is aware of this and wants to avoid her children dying, so she’ll tend to avoid any male raccoons. This is where the eviction fluid comes in. Because it smells like male raccoons, it makes the female think there’s one nearby. As a result, she’ll quickly gather up her babies and leave before the non-existent male arrives.
How to Apply It?
Raccoon eviction fluid shouldn’t be just sprayed all over the place. Instead, it’s best to first apply it to something that can absorb liquid, like a sponge or cloth. You should then distribute these soaked substances around the attic and put them into the hard to reach places where you think the raccoons are nesting – after making sure the soaked item is retrievable by attaching a rope or string. Once this is done, you just have to wait for a day or two and your attic or walls should be clear.
There you have it, raccoon eviction fluid. Created using the scent of male raccoons, and used to spark these creatures’ natural fears and instincts to leave through incredible human ingenuity. Yet everything isn’t as perfect as it seems, because the eviction fluid doesn’t always work. This is because it only targets a portion of all raccoons, namely female raccoons with litters. As a result, if there’s an infestation of male raccoons or female raccoons without any litters, the fluid accomplishes nothing. Despite this, it’s still one of the best tools in your arsenal when it comes to getting rid of raccoons.
