Raccoon Removal

In cultures across the globe, the raccoon is regarded as a symbol of intelligence, dexterity, and cunning. They uphold this label through their truly remarkable animal intellect. Unlike most other pests, a raccoon can remember the solution to a problem for up to three years. Consequently, because they are such clever creatures, raccoons can pose as a sufficient problem to homeowners and business owners alike. Properly treating and removing raccoons are not easy tasks that can be accomplished without minimal effort. In order to counteract their dexterity, exterminators and trappers must stay on par with them in order to trap them. Unfortunately, one may not even be able to cause any physical or possible mental harm to a raccoon if there are any federal or state laws protecting it. While raccoons are definitely formidable opponents, they can be conquered with the help of the quality products Pest Mall offers.

Raccoon Behavior

With their cute, round ears and bushy striped tails, raccoons have managed to capture the affection of many humans. However, as suggested by their characteristic eye “masks,” raccoons are also masters of deceit; though they may look precious and fluffy, they are actually mischievous trouble makers that can cause thousands of dollars in damage when left uncontrolled for too long. Raccoons are nocturnal omnivores that are definitely not picky about their food. Some researchers regard them as one of the most omnivorous animals because of their unselective diet that consists of invertebrates, plant material, and vertebrates. Consequently, they will literally eat anything, including trash, which is why many upset homeowners encounter these pests picking through overturned trash cans. Raccoons live in woody areas, especially those with trees that are easy to climb and inhabit. However, if trees are not available or suitable for climbing, then raccoons will inhabit abandoned dens made by other animals or abandoned attics. Because they are so likely to come in contact with humans, create messes and damage, and be vectors of diseases such as rabies, raccoons are regarded as particularly annoying pests that should be controlled immediately for human safety and sanitation.

How to Get Rid of Raccoons

With their cute and cuddly appearance, raccoons have managed to win over the sympathy of the general public and therefore are protected under various state and local laws. Before attempting to kill or trap any of them, one should verify that no laws will be violated during the process of control/extermination. One of the best raccoon control methods is actually prevention. By trimming trees and not letting them touch the home, sealing off all possible entry points, and installing electric fences, one can prevent raccoons from even entering the premise. In a situation where a raccoon has already entered the area, homeowners may choose between trapping the pest and killing it using a gas bomb. However, because not all raccoons utilize dens for shelter, live animal traps may be the better option. Pest Mall offers an effective live animal trap that can be set with bait to humanely trap and release the creatures without harming them or inflicting accidental self-harm. Sometimes making loud noises and flashing bright lights are enough to chase out raccoons temporarily, but they are not advised because they may actually instigate the creatures to attack.

Q. snake or rat in the attic(recomendation please)
A.   Firstly, you do need to inspect to see what is in the attic. Look for things like feces or grease marks. For snakes in particular, you can look for scale covers that they have shed. We do advise that you seek a professional to help you inspect your home. Treatment methods will drastically differ depending on the target pest. Typically, glue boards or snap traps will be used for rodents inside a house.

A.   The best way would be to trap them using a live animal trap. Once the animals have been removed from the area, it would be best to figure out a way to close up the entrance holes to prevent future infestations in the same area.

Q. Flushing out a raccoon
I have a raccon living under my backroom (got in to the foundation area through a hole) and need to flush it out so that I can seal the hole. I've put out a live trap for a week now every night and nothing. tried apples, sardines, tried a bowl of coke. How do I get the raccoon out?
A.   Raccoons are very sly and can be difficult to catch. We wonder if there is a separate entry point that the raccoon is using to go in an out of the foundation area. Keep the trap in its place and do not disturb it for a few nights. If you are unable to catch the raccoon, we recommend contacting animal control services to try and locate and catch the raccoon. If you have any further questions or comments, please feel free to contact us again.

Q. A raccoon has eaten his way throw my wall. What can I do to keep them out for the night?
A.   First and foremost, for the time being, you must seal off the entry point in which the raccoon entered. We recommend using the Rodent Proofing Copper Mesh to seal off the entry point. Depending on the state that you are located in, it may be unlawful to kill the raccoon, but you may want to call in animal control or use a live animal trap to trap the raccoon. If you have any further questions or comments, please feel free to contact us again.
