Humane, Effective Wildlife Control to Rely On
When confronted with a pest or wildlife problem, many people’s first urge is to attempt to handle the problem themselves. While this can lead to mixed results, it’s almost always a better option to trust a professional wildlife control team, especially when dealing with the dangers posed by raccoons.
While some pest control jobs such as insect removal require extermination, others require humane removal instead. In line with our dedication to safe, humane, and effective removal, Complete Pest Solutions has moved away from box trapping animals. Our research has led us to the effectiveness of One Way door systems instead. One Way doors allow us to use the animal’s own instincts and routine to vacate them from the structure they are inhabiting.
This has proven to be a more effective, thorough, and humane process to solve our customers’ issues. And for even more assurance, our One Way door animal programs come with a complete warranty on all of our work.
What to Know About Raccoons
Raccoons can live almost anywhere with access to food, water, and shelter. Considered one of the most adaptable mammals, these opportunistic pests will eat everything from berries and acorns to frogs and your trash. Raccoons are nocturnal, sleeping during the day and becoming active at night.
Raccoons — along with red and gray foxes, skunks, and bats — are considered a primary carrier of the rabies virus in the United States. While any warm-blooded animal can carry rabies, these are the ones we call “rabies vector species.”
If you see a raccoon in your yard during the day, don’t panic — she is not necessarily sick or dangerous. It’s perfectly normal for raccoons to be active throughout the day. She may merely be foraging longer hours to support her young, visiting a garden while the dogs are indoors, or moving to a new location.
More Possible Dangers of Raccoons
Another growing concern posed by raccoons is a roundworm (Baylisascaris) found in raccoon feces that can infect humans and pets. Prevention is key when it comes to this. It’s important to keep raccoons out of attics and crawl spaces, and supervise young children and pets outdoors to make sure they don’t come into contact with raccoon feces. If you find evidence of a raccoon latrine, make sure to clean it up properly.
Leptospirosis is caused by a bacteria that can infect raccoons, skunks, opossums, Norway rats, mice, and white-tailed deer. Humans may be exposed if they come into contact with infected urine or contaminated soil and water. In general, the best advice to keep in mind is to avoid touching wild animals.
Don’t risk exposure to disease for yourself or your pets, or further damage to your property. If contact is necessary to get a raccoon out of your house, call Complete Pest Solutions instead to ensure it is performed safely.
