Raccoons in the Neighborhood: What To Do?
Raccoons are familiar residents in urban and rural neighborhoods because of their nocturnal nature, affinity for trash, and ability to access scraps in trash cans and bins. However, they are troubling and could cause damage to your home or property. Not to mention they are seemingly fearless and could carry diseases or travel in numbers. If you are being pestered by raccoons in your neighborhood, contact Pest Services Company to handle your wildlife problem, and keep reading for more information about how we can safely solve the issue.
Check Your Property
Before evicting raccoons from your property or residence, you need to figure out how they enter. Give your home a thorough inspection to find entry points and openings that could be accessible for rodents. To determine if an opening is being used, block the hole loosely with wadded newspaper. Provided the weather conditions are calm over the next couple of days, the disturbance of the newspaper or lack thereof will be a telling sign as to whether or not you have unwanted visitors.
