Like opossums, raccoons can be a common site in and around your garbage cans. But more than your trash is at stake. Raccoons can set up shop and breed in your attic, causing tremendous home damage. And worse, they can carry a wide variety of hazardous diseases, including rabies, distemper, roundworm, and giardiasis. All of these can harm your pets—or you.

How You Know if You Have a Raccoon Problem

  • Your pets suddenly have fleas after never having had them before.
  • You hear unusual noises in your attic.
  • Your bird feeders, pet food bowls, or trash can have been knocked over or rummaged through.
  • Food is showing up in your pool—raccoons sometimes “wash” their food before eating it.

How We Trap or Capture Raccoons

Given the diseases they carry and their potential for rabies, you should never try to capture a raccoon on your own. As cute as they may be, they can also be quite aggressive when approached. If you have trouble with raccoons, call us. With our commercial-grade traps, we can easily remove these pests from your home or commercial building.

Raccoon Prevention

Once we’ve solved your raccoon problem, we’ll sit down and work out a plan to keep it from happening again—including fixing potential entry points in and around your attic and securing your garbage. The key to wildlife control is exclusion and prevention—call Heron today to see how we can help!
