Raccoons Tearing Up Your Yard? What You Need To Do

Raccoons can do a lot of damage, not only to your garbage cans, leaving trash strewn everywhere, but they can do other damage as well. If you see a baby raccoon, don't assume it's alone, as it could have an entire family nearby. If you spot raccoons in your yard, whether they're babies or they are full grown, you should call a pest control company for help. Read on for what else you can do to keep raccoons away from your home and yard.

Keep Your Trash Contained

Keep all of your trash contained and in garbage cans that have lids that aren't easily opened. Make sure the lids are secure each night. Also be sure you keep your trash in garbage bags to hold in the smell and keep raccoons from being able to sniff out your trash. Raccoons are looking for food and they don't care that it's coming out of your trash can. Keep your trash contained to keep raccoons and other pests such as opossums or stray cats out.

Seal Your Home And Garage

Raccoons aren't just going to go into your trash to look for food, they will also go into your garage or your home as well. If they find a place to get food, they're going to keep going in for that food. Look around your home and your garage for any areas that a raccoon can get into, including up in your attic and along your roof. If raccoons can get access to your roof from a fence or a tree limb, they can make their way into an open vent or a small hole - they may even be the ones that are making the holes. Seal all of these areas to keep raccoons or other pests out.

Don't Try To Handle The Animals

Leave handling the animals to a professional pest control company. Don't attempt to pick up a baby raccoon, as the mother may be nearby and you could get attacked, not to mention that baby raccoons also have claws and teeth that can harm you as well. Never try to remove a raccoon from your home, garage or elsewhere on your own. Call a pest control company instead.

If raccoons are tearing up your yard, it's not going to be long before they end up in your home. Call a pest control company for help getting rid of these pests and for other ways to prevent them in your yard or home.
