Raccoons tend to take shelter in every possible safest and near to food source place. First to detect their presence look for the areas particularly mud and areas near garden which could lead them toward any food source nearby. If you spot any trace of their feet set a trap there. Buy them and make them attractive by placing the food item in it, this will attract them and they will get into your trap. Look for food items, scats and pay attention toward their sounds. After detecting their presence take the following measure in order to get rid of them:
Set Traps to capture them
One of the safest and easiest ways is to trap them. There are many traps available in the market.

Keep these traps open only at night as it is the perfect time for them to get out in search of food.
Taking them Away from your house:
Once you trap them take them away from the house, almost 10 miles, from where they could never come back again.
Close all possible entries
After trapping them once, take all possible measures to prevent them from invading the place again keep your doors and windows close and fill the holes with paper and other material to prevent their entry again.
Eliminate all the possible sources of food:
They will remain there at the place unless the food source remains.
