I thought your post read, "pour ammonia around the neck"..made me laugh!(I can't read a thing without my glasses anymore). I doubt any self respecting raccoon would allow anyone to pour ammonia on them.

When I was a kid I was told you could catch a bird if you poured salt on it's tail. I thought adding salt to the water in my squirt gun would work...

Well, they do contract rabies and if you have a dog you might want to keep coons away from it rather than encouraging them.

As a professional, licensed WCO (wildlife control operator), most of these ideas are not good ideas. Repellents that you can purchase in a grocery store or a big box stores will not usually work. And exposing yourself to chemicals such as Napthalene, like mothballs, can actually cause blindness, kidney damage, etc... Ammonia fumes can harm your home by permeating into insulation, wood, sheetrock and others, and is impossible to get out of your home. Your best bet to a permanent solution is to evacuate the raccoons, if captured remove to a distance of 25 miles. Releasing "down the block at the park", means they will probably beat you back to the house. Then attractants must be removed, meaning your insulation removed, since it will have scents the raccoon was drawn to in the first place, disinfection of the attic area and new insulation installed. Most insulation has an effective lifetime of 5-15 years anyway, so don't feel too bad about replacing the damaged material. There are many ways to repair the situation, but it's not recommended that you try it yourself, ladder work is dangerous, and raccoons are not the friendliest animals around. If you do use a service to fix the situation make sure they are licensed and insured, not bonded. A good way to do this is to use a service like Home Advisors by Service Magic. They prescreen companies to make sure they are licensed and insured. Don't rely on sites like Angie's List since they will give negative reviews because the service tech won't walk their dog for them. Remember in these tough economic times there are a lot of pest control companies that attempt to do this work, and they usually only have a sentence or two about rats in their licensing requirements. We do plenty of work repairing what they attempt to do using substandard materials, and not having the understanding to do the job correctly.
