This is a simple patch made out of sheet
metal, that has a smallish door in it. The
could be cone-style, or flap style. The
metal can be trimmed to fit nicely over
hole in your roof or eaves where the
polecat/raccoon enters your house.
There's no need to flush
the critter out,
wait till it leaves, simply patch the hole
this device. The next time your uninvited
guest goes out for dinner, it'll have to
search for a new home as well (or
another entrance into yours).
One way mosquito screen

||It's be a shame if it had laid eggs or left babies, and was going out to collect food...
||Btw, if we knew how they got in, the holes would already be boarded over.
||We have a hole in one of our eaves that I
didn't notice until I heard the squirrel in
the wall, and went looking for it.
||//polecat ... enters your house.//
//There's no need to flush the critter out ...// - Damn right - just sell the house.
||I'm afraid you will have to flush that critter out [phlish].
||Reminds me of another idea on halfbakery, a one-way mosquito screen. See link.
