Most people will cringe on the idea of living together with a wild creature. Apart from the annoying noises that they will create during the wee hours of the night, the damages that they can create is unimaginable. Fortunately, there are effective ways that can help you resolve your problem. For those who have a raccoon in their house, the goal of the wildlife removal company should not be to kill the creature. They should have the capacity to remove them from your property safely and release them to their natural habitat.
Things to Do During Raccoon Removal
In case you have raccoon in your house, you better think twice if you are planning to kill them. Understand that this creature has the same amount of protection from inhumane eviction. Even the professional organizations and firms are required to follow the laws that preserve the safety of this creature and their habitat.
Finding Evidence of the Raccoon Infestation
In order to devise a proper plan, you should start by detecting the presence of raccoon activity. Listen closely and identify if you are hearing thumping noises especially during the night. There should also be droppings left in your house. Raccoons have sharp teeth and claws so watch out for any types of structural damage. This creature prefers to live in the warm and dry places such as our attic, basement, void in our walls, etc. Be sure to have a periodic examination of these areas of your house.
Identifying the Source of Your Problem
There are instances that after removing the elements that attract them, the raccoon will leave your place on their own accord. Start by securing your garbage bin by covering it with a tight and secured lid. Find out their access point in your house and seal it. However, be sure that it is not nesting season. You don’t want the baby raccoons to be left inside your attic. They are completely dependent on the mother raccoon and they will die from dehydration and starvation if the mother raccoon abandoned them.
Trapping and Relocation
Even if you are using the live traps, it can only be humane if you check the trap in a regular basis. In case you are placing the trap at the hard-to-reach areas and you can’t check it constantly, you should add water and food inside the trap. This way, the raccoon will not die from starvation. After capturing the raccoon, you should only relocate them in accordance with the law. Raccoons that have been relocated have a low rate of survival. In some places, you are only allowed to relocate them within the 10-mile radius.
The humane removal of the raccoon can guarantee you that no creatures will be injured during the process. This way, balance in our ecosystem will be maintained. Raccoons are not generally harmful creatures. Actually, they are docile creatures and will not attack human and pets as long as they will not be coerced or will not feel threatened.
