Raccoons are real rascals, and when they’re in or around your home, they can make your life a nightmare. They are also protected from forceful eviction here in the state of Michigan. Find out how we can help!
Why You Need to Worry About Raccoons:
- Raccoons may not be aggressive unless they are feeling threatened, but they tend to be carriers of rabies and their feces can expose you and your pets to dangerous and fatal diseases.
- Raccoons will cause damage by tearing up furniture and insulation, but they are likely to gnaw at wires and cables that may cause larger problems down the line.
- Raccoons will return to your home if the entrance point is not properly sealed.
Highly recommend this company! I had an issue with a very smart raccoon that was untrapable! They worked daily to figure out how to get her out. Multi level traps, bought special traps and finally she got caught. They never let me down! Always upbeat and understanding. From Kelly in the office, to Justin and Austin in the field. They are the best!Barbara Kissell
How Can I Get Rid Of Raccoons?
Raccoons are protected against forceful eviction here in the state of Michigan, so only a certified company is approved for raccoon relocation. Additionally, it is illegal and inhumane to poison a raccoon or smoke a raccoon out of your chimney. In many cases, these raccoons have babies with them, who will not be able to crawl out of the chimney.
You can, however, attempt to trap the raccoon yourself, by setting bait (they love eggs!) and waiting for the raccoon to enter the trap. Make sure that the trap is large enough, as it is unlawful to hurt a raccoon. Once you have the raccoon in the trap, call Wildlife Control Services and have them transfer and release the animal. You’ll also want them to check the attic for baby raccoons before leaving.
What Kind Of Damage Can A Raccoon Do?
- They knock over trash cans and leave garbage and waste all over your property.
- Their paws can track mud and other mess all through your home or office, should they gain access.
- They can use their claws to tear up furniture and break things.
- They oftentimes nibble on wires and cables.
- They can defecate in your vents or die in your attic, making your entire home or office smell worse than the garbage all over your lawn.
