Raccoon Removal from your home's vents is a very common request for all Raccoon Control Professionals in the spring and winter. Around the middle of March the Raccoons migrate back to their homes to start pairing and mating. The female Raccoon has an instinct to "nest" and looks for any suitable place to raise her young. Your vent is one of the most secure place for her in your home. This can be noisy for you as you hear them constantly moving, scratching and vocalizations coming from your vent. They must be removed very quickly before the babies hatch.
