You hear scurrying around your home at night, see your trashcans toppled over each morning, and find your dog food bags curiously ripped open in your garage. You are beginning to get suspicious that there is a pest about. If this sounds like you, there is a very good chance you are dealing with nature’s cutest bandits— raccoons. Now you may ask, ‘Can animal control remove a raccoon from my home?’ Short answer: yes. Long answer? Well, you’ll have to read on.
How Do Raccoons Get In?
From inclement weather to normal wear and tear, your home gets weaker as time goes on. If you do not fix it up every now and then, you’re giving raccoons easy access to your home. These critters have a knack for getting into seemingly impossible spaces with their cunning minds and nimble hands. Their favorite place to set up shop is in your cool, dark, attic where they can be left alone to scavenge for food, raise their young, and wreak havoc on your home’s interior.
Whether they enter your garage or your soffits, the damage they can do to your home is significant. Their large size normally means you can detect a raccoon infestation early on, but if not dealt with in a timely manner, you may already have hundreds of dollars’ worth of damage before you are even aware they got in.
How Can You Get Them Out?
While you may be able to find dozens of articles on the internet about how to perform DIY raccoon removal, it is never an option an expert wildlife technician will suggest. This is because most homeowners do not have the proper tools or knowledge to remove raccoons on their own, and since these critters can carry dangerous diseases like rabies or leptospirosis, you risk exposing yourself to a harmful situation.
Luckily, at Critter Control of Orlando®, we’ve created and perfected a four-step process to quickly and humanly remove raccoons from your home, and make sure they never come back. Our process includes:
We’ll locate the critter and determine the extent of their damage.
Using humane tactics like live traps, we’ll safely capture and remove the critter from your home.
We’ll handle any messes they left behind, so you can be sure your home is safe and sanitized.
After locating all entry and exit points, we’ll patch them up and reinforce them so other critters can’t return to your home.
