Fairfax County Raccoon Control & Removal

About Raccoons: Raccoons, with their black mask and ringed tail, cause a wide variety of problems. They are very strong and nimble, and often tip over garbage cans or pry their way inside houses. They commonly break into the attics of homes. Frequently, a female raccoon with babies will enter an attic. Raccoons are cute, but they can be very destructive. We humanely trap and relocate these animals. It's important to find and remove the baby raccoons if there's a momma raccoon in the attic.

Raccoons are a common nuisance animal in northeast Virginia. In Fairfax County and Arlington County, raccoon have become a particularly common problem, as they have invaded many homes in the area. If you need a professional solution for your Fairfax County raccoon problem, give us at A Wildlife Pro a call.

In Virginia, is it illegal to relocate many of the different species such as raccoons? Are we only allowed to release it on the property? I was reading one of the web pages and it states that we relocate all wildlife safely outside the greater Fairfax VA area. I will think about how to word it differently…something like, “We use Humane Methods” That’s what I have on my business card, and that is the way we operate. If I euthanize an animal, I use a slow steady stream of CO2. I do release some wildlife, but not those that I am legally bound to euthanize. If people have a raccoon in the attic, and they don’t mind it being on their property, I will either trap and evict it, then do the exclusion work for them, or will use a 1 way door and do a permanent exclusion once I know it is out. If it is doing other damage to their property or landscape, I will euthanize it after capture.

Hi David. I appreciate your article. I'm writing for advice. The raccoons that tear up my garden are easily attracted to my trap. They walk in, eat the marshmallows taking great care to step over the pan on the way in and out. I've even taped the marshmallow to the pan. Somehow they are able to remove the marshmallows, leave the tape, and not trip the door. I have the rod set on the very end of the metal loop so it only takes a slight jiggle to tip the door, but these guys are taking my bait every night and leaving the trap unsprung. Any suggestions?
