First you need to figure out how they are getting in and repair and strengthen that part of the house.

If this is not something you are able to do, there are wildlife control services you can hire to come to your home and take care of the animal. You can call the MD Wildlife Hotline for got numbers and info on recommended companies:877-463-6497.

Before you do so, please also read our nuisance wildlife article, which addresses problems with raccoons and squirrels:http://extension.umd.edu/sites/default/files/_images/programs/hgic/Publications/HG90%20Dealing%20wit...
