Management of Raccoons - Part B (Advanced)

Instructor: Stephen Vantassel

Because the management of raccoons is a detailed process, this topic is split into two courses: basic (part A) and advanced (part B). This advanced course provides an overview of baiting principles and the different types of traps recommended for raccoons. This course will also touch on diseases carried by raccoons and how to humanely dispatch trapped raccoons. 

After completing this course participants will be able to:

  • Discuss the difference between blind and baited traps.
  • Describe how to keep traps working effectively and avoid non-target captures.
  • Describe the different types and styles of traps available for raccoon capture.
