Nuisance Concerns

Raccoons are an animal that can adapt to whatever surroundings they may be living in. Living near people is one of the environments that they thrive in. They have realized that people are a source of food and shelter for them and their young. They will get into dumpsters and garbage cans, pet food, and even your garden to find food.

They will seek shelter in attics, basements, and anywhere else they can access. Mother raccoons will do whatever they need to in order to find a safe place to raise their young and to them, your attic is perfect. They will cause major damage trying to get in and once they are in there. Droppings, torn up insulation, ripped up insulation on pipes, destroyed ductwork, broken screens, and damaged soffit boards and roofs are just some of the issues they can pose to your home.

Diseases

Not only are they a nuisance, but they can also pose a threat to the health of you, your family, and your pets. They can carrier a plethora of diseases including canine distemper, rabies, and fungal or bacterial infections from the droppings and urine that they leave behind. This is one of the major reasons as to why raccoons need to be removed immediately once you have discovered that they have made your home theirs’.

Getting Rid Of Them

This solution is a lot easier said than done. The animal must be trapped and removed and then you will need to take some exclusionary measures to make sure that they don’t come back. Exclusion measures are an important part of the process because if they have gotten in once, they will get back in again.

If it is a mother raccoon with babies that needs to be dealt with, we must remove the babies first and then the mother can be removed. Raccoons just on the property causing damage outside can simply be caught and removed.

Many people get pulled into the false idea that repellents will work. They find different repellents like urine-based repellents, mothballs, and even ultrasonic sound emitters that are marketed as repellents for animals like raccoons. None of these really work. Expert wildlife removal specialists are the only real solution to this problem. These repellents end up just being a waste of your money and time.

Keeping Them Off The Property

The presence of raccoons is not really the problem, the problem is when they begin to be destructive to your home and your property. They are dumping the garbage over as they look for food, they are destroying your home by trying to get into the attic to have their babies, they are getting into your dog’s food, they are digging up the garden you have worked so hard to grow.

Ultimately, they are attracted to some part of your property. The way to solve this is by eliminating their ability to access these attractive areas. You will need to get locking lids for your garbage cans, secure your garden, seal up any and all possible entry points to your home, store your pet’s food inside or in a locked container. It is about vigilance. Our experts can help you to identify some of the attractive areas around your home and property that may be attractive to raccoons.
