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.

“I enjoy working for PMi because of the family atmosphere, everyone here I consider family and we all have each other’s back. At the end of each day, I go home knowing we helped our customers on what can be a very stressful, frustrating day for them. I am grateful to work in a place which makes us grow to greater heights.”
“The reason I love not just my position in “bed bugs,” but the “pest field,” in general, period. Just as police, firefighters, and medical personnel are so important, I feel we are so important as well. We get out every day no matter the situation to give our clients a peace of mind, we help them solve their problems. If we do not do it who will… I have worked for a different pest control company in past and I must say hands down this have been the best company to work for. Everyone seems to be on page and a family no matter how new you are. They took time to properly train me, if I had questions it was answered and always been respectful… 🥳 woo PMI is the way to go 🏽🏽🏽!”
“I am proud to work for a company that focuses so much energy on taking care of customers and employees. PMi is family oriented and focuses on everyone’s values and strengths. We truly accomplish more working together which positively impacts the daily lives of not only our customers, but our employees as well. I’m grateful to have started a career at PMi three years ago.”
“It’s hard not to sound cliché’ but PMi is my extended family. From the first day I stepped into the office I felt welcomed and more importantly I felt like people were being themselves which made me feel more comfortable in stepping into a big role. I have had things come up that have required special circumstances and Billy and Laurie have truly been a blessing to me and my family. The people I work with everyday are hardworking people which makes joking around a breeze because it never gets in the way of getting the job done. It also helps that a lot of the people I work with have kids the same age as I do; the kids love it when we get to do fun things (Pre-Pandemic) like our Myrtle Beach Trip, Swarm Games, Grasshopper Games and Winter Wonderlights and they get to see everyone. I think good companies have good leaders; good leaders attract good people. I cannot wait to see how we can continue to grow this company and continue to help people in our community.”
“Having worked both in the field and now in the office I can honestly say that I love my job here! It is more like being with family all day than coworkers. Everyone takes pride in what they do, and we take care of our customers as a team. It makes a difference when you like going to work every day.”

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.
