While Raccoons are generally classified as a pest, they can be dangerous to your little ones and family pets. Make no mistake about it. Raccoons are not pets. Sharp claws and teeth make them lethal.
Here is a list of the “Top 10” raccoon complaints we receive:
- Noise coming from the attic
- Raccoons living in your attic
- Raccoons also like living in chimneys like squirrels
- Knocking over garbage cans looking for food
- Raccoons like birdseed and pet food (beware if your pet food is outside and it is missing)
- Raccoons are often sick and can carry rabies
- Your pets are barking or sensing their presence
- Late-night noise
- Holes that have been dug under your fence
- Actual late-night sightings or pets making a beeline for some part of your yard when letting out
The fastest and easiest solution is to have them trapped and removed.
However, this is not a job for the inexperienced as these guys are tricky and mean when cornered or caged. Don’t go it alone call the professionals at Thomas Wildlife control.
Trapping and removal of raccoons can be dangerous.
The chances are very probable that it is a female raccoon with a litter of young ones not far away. This fact alone makes this a risky proposition for the untrained homeowner. One of the worst things you can do is just “set a trap.” That is why so many local homeowners call Thomas Wildlife Control for expert advice and assistance all at reasonable and affordable pricing.
Raccoons can be a nuisance:
Raccoons maybe #1 on the nuisance list. The main reason for this is they have been able to adapt to living with humans and seem just to fit in. The raccoon has figured out that houses are an excellent and free place to live and that garbage cans can provide easy pickings once a week. Since mother raccoon is the primary provider for the litter, she has figured out that tearing or biting a hole in the roof is fast, easy, and for the most part, safe for her and the kids.
If you have a raccoon making a home in your attic, you will know it just by the noise. In addition to putting a hole in your roof and building a nest, they also will make a big mess, and droppings will be everywhere.
Because raccoons are active, they can and will do much more damage than a squirrel, and it will be costly to fix.
That’s why people, just like you all over the Sacramento area, choose Thomas Wildlife control more often than any other company. So, give us a call today to learn more.
Raccoons can also Carry Diseases:
Raccoons are common carriers of diseases such as rabies, which can be fatal in certain instances. Because they can also carry canine distemper, they pose a threat to all dogs and one that could result in your dog being killed. The droppings of a raccoon might also carry raccoon roundworm
Spores associated with roundworm, which humans can breathe in, may result in serious infections. Raccoons need to be captured using a human habitat.
So, the big question is, “how do I remove raccoons from my attic?”
Raccoons, because of their size and strength, need to be tapped and removed by professionals. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO TRAP AND REHOME A RACCOON BY YOURSELF. The results might be disastrous. Call Thomas Wildlife Control today for a free quote from the local experts.
