raccoon removal

The raccoon has a distinctive shaggy, grayish-brown fur, unique black “bandit” faced mask, and black-and-white ringed bushy tail. It is omnivorous, feeding upon fish, frogs, small mammals, birds and their eggs, mollusks, crustaceans, fruits, nuts, small grains in storage and fields and certain vegetables such as corn.

The long slender toes (”fingers”) on its front feet are used with great dexterity in grasping small objects and searching for food, while the large surfaces of its hind feet allow it to balance easily on its feet. The single litter per year, in the spring, varies from two to eight. The gestation period is 60 to 70 days. After about 10 weeks the newborns emerge from their nest. Raccoons are nocturnal and seldom move around in daylight.

Even though they are normally easily frightened, they can be fierce fighters when cornered. Raccoons are very inquisitive and, on rare occasions, will gain access into attics, basements or crawl spaces beneath houses.

One of the most common problems is their turning over garbage cans and scattering the contents in search of food.

Treatment
We will set traps and remove the problem animal(s).

Precautions
Do not confront any problem animals. They may be sick or aggressive.

What to Expect
After the trapping process we can/may put a temporary patch over the access hole (if possible).

  • Fleas flea treatment pest control Fleas

    Fleas

    Fleas are tiny insects with bodies thin and flattened from side to side much as a fish is flattened. The flea is one of the most troublesome of insects and one of the most dangerous. This makes it easy for them to slip quickly about among the hairs of the animal upon which they live, for all fleas are parasitic. Fleas have no wings, but their long, froglike hind legs make them wonderful jumpers. The head has a long, sharp [...]
