Raccoon Control Solutions
Raccoons, also known as the Common Raccoon, the North American Raccoon, the Northern Raccoon, or simply, Coon, are animals that are native to North America. These mid-sized mammals are easily recognizable with their bandit-masked faces, and while the original habitats of these animals are deciduous and mixed forests, they can also be found in the mountains and around marshes.
In recent years, the intrusion of human settlements into their original habitat has found raccoons adapting themselves to their new neighbors in suburban and urban areas. Extremely intelligent scavengers, raccoons around human neighborhoods have now proved to be quite the pests, invading our properties for food and even using secluded corners of our homes to set up their dens. Raccoons, although timid creatures, are known to attack viciously when cornered. Apart from the hovering chances of an attack, these animals are also capable of transmitting a wide range of serious diseases through their saliva, urine and feces.
Moreover, their nesting habits make them a nuisance on the home front too, where they cause considerable damage to the structure of a house as well as the interiors in a bid to set up nests. These, and other reasons have ensured that when it comes to raccoons, keeping them away from your property is the right thing to do. We are well aware of all the potential dangers that the presence of a raccoon can bring about. Our licensed raccoon removal technicians are capable of handling raccoon invasions in a professional and humane manner, and our services are guaranteed too. If you’re up against a raccoon problem, call us today on 647-931-6183 for a quick inspection followed by a comprehensive and lasting solution.
Are Raccoons Truly a Hazard?
There are three accounts on which the presence of a raccoon on your property or even in the vicinity can be a problem. Firstly, raccoons are known carriers of several bacteria and viruses that are extremely harmful to both humans as well as pets and other animals. The saliva, feces and urine of these animals all carry threats in the form of harmful organisms. In some cases, the diseases or conditions transmitted from a raccoon could even prove to be fatal. Therefore, even when they are occasional visitors on your property, the threat of the diseases they carry remains a real one.
Secondly, the nesting habits of a raccoon see the animal invade attics, sheds, chimneys and just about every other secluded location on a property, in search of a safe place to nest. While doing so, raccoons invariably cause damage to the house.
Furthermore, raccoons, although timid creatures, are well known to even fight unto death when confronted. This is always a serious problem, as during a confrontation, your pets and even you or your children could be bitten or scratched by these animals. Of course, there is also the constant risk of contracting the deadly Rabies virus in the event of such contact.
How Raccoons Pose Danger to Our Health
The Rabies virus remains the most dangerous threat that infected raccoons carry. These animals are capable of transmitting this virus through their saliva and therefore, raccoon bites and scratches, whether it is to a pet or a human, should always be treated in a swift manner.
The feces and urine of raccoons too carry several bacteria and viruses including the Salmonella Bacteria that causes Salmonella, the corkscrew-shaped Leptospira bacteria that causes Leptospirosis and roundworm eggs which cause Raccoon Roundworm.
The adverse effects of these conditions range from loss of muscle control, high fever, diarrhea and severe aches to meningitis, liver and kidney failure, loss of vision and even slipping into a coma.
Raccoons and Property Damage
There are several ways to detect the presence of raccoons simply by looking around your property. Dented or destroyed bird feeders, strewn garbage from your trash cans, destroyed crops or fruit trees and damaged structural portions near the garage, chimney or attic are all signs of raccoon activity.
In their quest to set up dens, raccoons often invade human homes and make preparations to nest in attics, chimneys, garages, sheds, barns and even unused vehicles. In the process, they not only create a nuisance, but also end up damaging property and causing financial losses.
Why Hire Professionals to Tackle a Raccoon Problem
Whether it is a raccoon that is simply visiting your property to scavenge for food, or an entire family of raccoons that has set up base in your home, the most responsible manner in which you can tackle the situation is to call on the services of a professional raccoon removal team.
Since the raccoon looks like a cute, timid animal, people often commit the error of assuming that it is indeed a sober creature. Now, while raccoons are known for their shy nature and lack of aggression in the normal scheme of things, they are certainly far from timid when it comes to putting up a fight when cornered.
Yes, raccoons are jumpy creatures, and unless very well-acquainted to human habitat, steer clear of human beings and their pets, completely avoiding crossing paths with them. However, there have been several instances where dogs, even the most vicious ones, have had to back out of a fight with raccoons. That’s how scary these animals can get when cornered.
Therefore, it is never a good idea to set your dog or other pets on a raccoon. These animals are even known to fight unto death, the prospects of which could be quite dangerous for your pet.
Of course, there is always the danger of contracting the deadly Rabies virus from an infected raccoon, and this could pose even more problems on the health front.
Raccoon Removal Cost
The cost of raccoon removal ranges between $275 and $500. The base cost covers the removal of the raccoon via the use of a one way door. The cost changes and rises in more extreme situations where the animals have caused extensive damage that needs to be repaired.
