There are other ways to get rid of raccoons on your property but first, here are some facts about them that you should know and why they would love to hang out on your property.
Facts about these animals and why raccoons love your property
Raccoons are omnivores and are opportunistic eaters. They love to eat crayfish, frogs, fish, insects, grains, fruits and nuts. Raccoons also like to nest in dark spots that provide warmth and comfort. A major attractant that leads to a raccoon hangout is food. If there is an easy-to-reach garbage can, overflowing bird feeder or spilled pet food bowl and your property, chances are you have a raccoon problem.
Are Raccoons Dangerous?
Raccoons are relatively timid but can be dangerous to humans if cornered or threatened, like any wild animal. If you find a den of them in or near your home, you should take extra precautions to ensure that they are not a risk to you and your family. They could carry rabies, parasites and other diseases.
With this said, there are very few cases of humans being injured by raccoons. They are more afraid of us than we are of them. As human habitation moves further into rural areas, raccoon and human encounters will increase. As the dominant species, we have the brainpower to make those interactions safe.
Should you use a pest control company to get rid of raccoons?
Using a pest control company can be an effective way to get rid of raccoons as they will have access to more sophisticated methods and tools than the average home owner. However, it’s important to make sure that the company you hire is reputable and looks after its animals in a humane way. These companies are often very expensive charging hundreds, if not thousands of dollars, for their services.
Don’t spend too much. Get rid of raccoons for good with Outside TEOS.
