- Below is a series of emails from a man in Chicago who had a raccoon problem. Some friends of mine in that area were able to help him with his raccoon problem. Alas, I was not able to
accommodate him with his romantic needs.
Dude, your site is awesome and helped me SO MUCH. I just did get rid of a raccoon in an attic above my kitchen. We used a live trap and some tuna and caught it and then took it over 10 miles away and released it into the forest preserve. I am in the process of looking for a company to go up in there now and remove all the insulation and shit that this thing left up there. I was considering putting on a mask, gloves and going up there and doing it myself, but after reading your site I'm thinking maybe I should let professionals do it. YOU HAVE BALLS man. lol Some of your pics are freaken cool. I wouldn't be getting anywhere near some of the animals and creatures you are holding. LOL If I hadn't caught the thing myself, I would have flown you up to Chicago to get it for me dude. I think we actually got her JUST BEFORE she was going to have her babies, so I'm happy about that. I got my insurance check and now i have to start all the clean up and repairs. What a pain in the ass.
Anyway, just wanted to say, VERY cool site. It helped me a lot and I wish you the best in your business. Looks like you do a great job bud. Very cool.
By the way, you're a HOT GUY also!! :)
David (same name) lol
Thanks for the email. You should have checked to see if the raccoon had
lactating nipples, that will tell you if she's got young in the attic. Be sure to listen for them now, just in case. You don't want baby raccoons in the attic to
starve and die. You can find a local trapper to help you by following the links on my site to Chicago. In your area the number is 708.512.7717
Hey there, Yeah, I know. I have been listening and listening VERY closely every night. Trying to hear if there is any sign of babies in there. Nothing so far in the week since we captured the mother. Dude, I was looking at all your pics and reading all the stories about the jobs you have done. I was LAUGHING MY ASS off reading about you trying to capture the armadillo by hand!! LOL Also, got a little pissed reading about how that store stiffed you payment for the job you did for them. Did they EVER end up paying you? I'll have to call those bastards and give them a piece of my mind. I see you went to ND. I live about an hour and a half from there on the South Side of Chicago. Anyway, I really have learned a lot reading your web site. I think you probably give people TOO MUCH info on how to catch and get rid of pests. You may actually be showing them all your secrets and then they don't have to hire you. LOL But you look like you are VERY good at what you do, and to be honest, even having the knowledge of how to do what you do, I wouldn't have the guts in most cases!! LOL
Anyway, I did contact one of the companies you suggested in my area for the clean up. After reading everything, I decided not to try to get up there and clean it out myself. Thanks for the response bud. Have a good one.
Thanks again for the kind words about my website. No I never got paid by the gift store owner, oh well. As for the attic cleanup, if you
want, you can hire my friends in Chicago, Dan and Ben. They are also Notre Dame fans. They will do a great job, and their phone number is 708.512.7717.
Those are actually the guys that I have coming out Monday night to give me a quote for the cleanup. I got their number from your web site. My Insurance company said they would give me some recommendations for companies to do the cleanup, but I haven't gotten them from them yet, so just decided to take matters in my own hands and was searching online today when I found your site. In my case, I want ALL of the insulation above my kitchen removed, and the place decontaminated before we put new insulation back in. We have rolled insulation, not blown in, so should be a little easier, but still a messy job. Like I said, I was considering pocketing the insurance money and doing it myself, but I really don't know if I want to do that now. We'll see what price your buds give me on Monday.
Hey dude. I used your buddies up here in the Chicago south burbs. They cleaned out my attic and sprayed in the decontaminate stuff. They did a good job, and a few days later I did the blow in Insulation myself, and everything has been repaired. My attic is like Fort Knox now. lol Thanks again for your help. The information on your site was VERY helpful.
So I went through your FAQ page of questions that you normally get asked. EX. "do you ever get bitten", "do you use poisen", "are you insured" "aren't you too young"? ALL OF
THOSE. So has anyone ever asked you if you are married? LOL
I'm glad my friends did a good job. Thanks for all the flattery in your emails. I'm not married. I currently live with my girlfriend. Glad your attic is back in shape and that you liked my sites.
Ahhhh, you live with your girlfriend? DAMN IT TO HELL! ha ha ha ha. Just kidding bro. I knew it was too much to expect that you played on my team! ha ha, Anyway, I'll leave you alone man. I'm not a stalker or anything. Just really got a big kick out of your site and comments and you seem to have a great personality besides being a hot dude, so all in good fun bro.
Sorry to disappoint, but thanks again for the compliments. Though I am disappointed that your last email didn't have any LOLs.
Holy shit... you're rippin on me!
