The Suburban Menace
Raccoons, along with other wild animals like foxes, skunks and bats, are the primary rabies carriers in the United States. Putting yourself in close contact with a raccoon is not just risky, but potentially life-threatening.
While keeping your small pets inside during the nighttime and locking your trashcans are good deterrents to keeping raccoons off your property, when the time comes for a female to give birth, they will usually attempt to get into a house, shed, or other structure to keep them safe.
Did You Know?
Raccoons are able to make more than 50 different sounds. These include purring, screaming, growling, & even whistling.
Prevent Costly Damage
In reality, raccoons are pests that can cause a lot of damage to your home and property. The females damage property significantly as they look for nesting sites. A female raccoon can wreak havoc as she creates a nest for her young by:
- Rip shingles off of roofs.
- Tear through fascia and trim boards.
- Claw through rooftop ventilators.
- Remove or destroy insulation, dryer, and air conditioning ducts.
Additionally, raccoon urine and feces can spread multiple life-threatening diseases and illnesses, Such as Leptospirosis, Salmonella, & Raccoon Roundworm. All the more reason to remove these dangerous creatures quickly and safely.
As most people may know, leaving an attic or interior wall insulation covered in the feces and urine pests leave behind is not just a bad idea, it's a serious danger to your health. That is why cleaning and decontaminating the attic after an infestation is crucial in preventing future infestations.
Our insulation decontamination process begins by vaccuming any droppings, cleaning and sterilizing infected areas, and replacing the soiled insulation, whether fiberglass or blown-in. Trap All Wildlife can handle it all.
