We had a ninja raccoon residing in a North York home within the chimney. When we arrived we had a dilemma between 2 chimney’s to cap, so we made some noise. A raccoon looked up at us and there we had clarity on which chimney to cap and which one to perform a raccoon removal. As you can see in this video, this raccoon is way too comfortable down in the chimney and is barely bothering to look up at all the noise.
We used a 1 way door exclusion device with meshing to provide the removal service. This is a typical job, like any other job we have to assess the situation and make tough choices. Our client had 2 other chimney openings, he chose to do prevention to avoid the problem in the future. Raccoons are smart and stubborn, if you close one door, they’ll open another.
