Beyond causing noise in the middle of the night and making a mess of your garbage cans, raccoons can:
- Cause significant damage to your home’s exterior, attic, or walls
- Carry rabies, which poses a threat to family members or pets
- Carry giardia, an infection carried in feces that contaminates water and food
Typically, racoons prefer to live in shaded areas close to a water source. However, urban sprawl has limited their habitat and created a food scarcity in some areas. This causes racoons to come into closer contact with humans as they scavenge through garbage cans to find food. Unfortunately, racoons can pose health risks to both humans and dogs, which is why you should call PMi Pest Management at the first sign that you have a racoon in your home.
While racoons can carry and transmit rabies, it is unusual for them to attack. They are nocturnal, which means that they sleep during the day and hunt at night, which makes contact rare. In addition, they will do their best to avoid humans and are only known to attack when feeling threatened. Perhaps the biggest danger from racoons can be found in their feces. Their dropping contain roundworm eggs, which are harmful to humans and the excrement can contaminate food and water sources. In addition, they can transmit canine distemper to family pets.
If racoons are common in your area, there are some steps you can take to make your home less inviting to these animals. First, don’t leave pet food outside. Once they are done eating, bring bowls inside and don’t racoons don’t come looking for the leftovers. Second, be sure to inspect your home and repair and close up any openings around attics, porches or other areas that provide an entry point for racoons. Finally, find ways to secure the lid on your garbage cans and make it difficult for racoons to gain access. Consider tying down the lid with a rubber strap or rope.

PROVEN METHODS OF RACCOON CONTROL
The experts at PMi will provide you with a free estimate on raccoon control for your property, which includes professional advice on how to maintain a raccoon-free home for years to come.
Though many homeowners attempt to use homemade raccoon traps or lethal methods of eliminating raccoons, we strongly advise against this method of raccoon treatment as it can be easy to contaminate unwanted areas or become dangerous. We will deploy a raccoon control professional, who will only use responsible, non-lethal raccoon traps. Trying to trap them on your own may lead to dangerous contact with the animal, some of whom carry disease.
In addition to responsibly trapping the raccoon, PMi may propose:
- Make any modifications to your home that may prevent raccoon habitation. This includes the sealing of gaps in siding or crawl space. We will find the animal’s method of entry and close it permanently.
- Install caps over roof vents that are being used by raccoons to gain entry to your home.
When you call PMi, you can rest assured that we will get to the bottom of your raccoon problem and exercise the necessary measures to end it quickly.
