Humane Raccoon Removal

Humane Removal of Raccoons.

City & Country Pest Control specializes in the humane removal of raccoons. Raccoons are very intelligent animals that are very good at climbing trees as well as structures. Many buildings, including residential homes, provide everything a raccoon needs. A source of food and shelter. Raccoons are known to seek shelter under decks and porches, as well as attics. Attics provide a safe, warm and dry environment that these animals prefer especially during the colder months. From there they mere steps away from backyard compost bins, or outdoor garbage bins, which they are very capable of opening to access the food inside.

Raccoons might look cute and harmless, but they will cause a lot of damage to your home if allowed to stay. At the same time, they can pose a severe health threat. Raccoons are powerful animals with strong paws and sharp nails. They will tear up roof shingles and pull down soffits to get into your attic. Once inside, they create more damage by tearing up insulation, defecating and urinating, creating a space that is contaminated with airborne bacteria, that is very dangerous to human health. One example is a roundworm found in raccoon feces. Roundworm, if ingested, can lead to a variety of symptoms and, in some cases, can become fatal. Raccoon roundworms can be ingested by merely breathing the air around raccoon feces.

City and Country Pest Control staff are equipped with proper safety gear, including protective suits and respirators, so they can safely access contaminated areas and asses the damage caused by raccoons. We will inspect your property to determine whether you do have a raccoon problem in your home. We will evaluate the points of entry and will safely and humanely remove all raccoons from your property.

Although, as mentioned earlier, raccoons can look cute and harmless, it is best not to approach raccoons and try to catch them with your hands as they can get vicious when in defensive mode and will attack when they feel threatened. With their excellent sense of smell and direction, raccoons are capable of finding their way back home if released in a nearby area.
