  • Find out where it got in and seal it up
    Don't leave any food out
    Get locking lids for your garbage cans

  • Are they coming inside?

    Check doors/dryer vents, etc to make sure they don't have a path to enter.

    Use a humane trap, you'll catch them easily enough. Be forewarned, the adults are absolutely vicious when it comes to their young.

  • wow call your local wildlife officer and see if they can lend a hand..sometimes they have traps they can set and relocate the animal

  • I second the wildlife office suggestion. they may have a live trap you could use.
