Raccoon Trapping Removal
Raccoons are dangerous animals, and their removal is best left to professionals who are ready and capable of handling this complicated task.
Raccoon Removal, Trapping, and Exclusion
As nocturnal wildlife animals, raccoons are dangerous, resourceful, and adaptable. You can spot raccoons by their distinctive black markings around the eyes and alternating dark and light rings around its tail.
Raccoons are typically 2 to 3 feet long and weigh anywhere from 10 to 30 pounds, but don’t let their size fool you. These bushy bandits can swim, climb trees, and stand on their hind legs to inspect. Plus, their paws can open almost anything around your home or business—from turning doorknobs to opening trash cans, windows, and garage doors.
Why are raccoons dangerous?
Maybe you have seen this fuzzy animal foraging for food during the day when they take advantage of alternative food sources, but they are not to be considered a friend. If approached, raccoons can feel threatened, act unpredictably, and even be rabid. With sharp claws and teeth, this wildlife animal can pose a danger to your family or beloved pets.
Raccoons can carry diseases such as rabies and raccoon roundworm—both harmful to humans—which is why you don’t want them hanging around your home. Also, raccoons threaten properties because they can be destructive searching for any food source they can find. Removing raccoons from around your home is definitely a job for licensed professionals.
How do I get rid of raccoons?
Raccoons are most active from sunset to sunrise, but they are also active throughout the whole year, making them a problem year-round that you will want to avoid. Don’t try to handle raccoons on your own, as DIY solutions may be unsuccessful or even hazardous.
