“Dear PoP,

any advice? these little guys were around last summer – they’re back and they’re bigger. if the windows are open they come right up to the screen and watch us. it’s kind of disconcerting.

is this something that animal control can handle or do i have to rig up my own traps and relocate the buggers?”

I know we recently spoke of racoons but I think this is a special case. If they’re actually coming up to your window and climbing all over the house – perhaps they’ll find a nesting spot in your house. Also, while I’ll go on the record again – I freaking hate racoons (and possoms) but that picture up top is pretty damn cute. Crap, I can’t believe I just said that…

This reader has to call a trapper right? I’ve previously recommended adcock trapping and some others are mentioned here.
