If you live in Connecticut at some point you’re going to come into contact with a raccoon. Known for their distinctive black mask and ringed tail, these small mammals are mostly nocturnal and it’s not unusual to see a pair of greenish eyes staring at you at night when you hear a crash by the garbage cans. Raccoons are a common carrier of rabies so it’s not safe to have one roaming about your home or commercial property. If these pests are making themselves too welcome it’s time to consider safe raccoon removal.
Getting rid of raccoons is easier said than done. Raccoons have an uncanny ability to lodge themselves in hard to reach areas including attics, chimneys, garages and basements. Easily startled, raccoon behavior can be difficult to predict and there is usually more than one so if you want to safely remove a raccoon from your property seek out professional animal wildlife control.
Safely removing raccoons includes setting live-traps, repairing damage to a home or building where the animal entered and exited and taking preventative measures to ensure other raccoons don’t also find their way in. By using live trapping you can catch raccoons in a humane manner that won’t involve lethal action or injury. Repellents have proven to be ineffective in deterring raccoons from homes and buildings so if a raccoon family has taken up residence in your place contact Anderson Wildlife Control today.
