RACCOON REMOVAL AND CONTROL
Raccoons are considered a nuisance wildlife animal to homeowners and commercial property owners. This is because they forage food in our garbage cans, bags and dumpsters. They also raid gardens to feed on fruits and vegetables.
Raccoons also enter our crawlspaces and attics to keep warm and to keep their young litter safe. Furthermore, raccoons can pose a health risk to humans and pets. Raccoons become dangerous when they leave their urine and feces in yards, play areas and attics, allowing disease to be spread.
Raccoons are the primary hosts of the vector-borne disease rabies. Since raccoons are mainly nocturnal when seen during the day, people react as if it is rabid, which is not always the case. Mothers of young raccoons do venture out to find food for them during the daylight hours.
As raccoons gain access to our homes and commercial buildings through bending gutters, louvers and soffits, they become destructive and can do significant damage. Therefore is vital to perform either a direct capture or use the proper trapping techniques. First, it is critical to make sure all the raccoons and their babies are gone. Afterward, the appropriate exclusion techniques need to be completed so the raccoons cannot return. Finally, repair and restoration of the attic are critical, ensuring the attic has been decontaminated and cleaned of any waste.
