So, a raccoon has decided that your home or business is a good hang out spot for themselves and their friends. You’re not alone. Raccoons are common pests around residential homes, particularly in the areas that we serve- Chilliwack, Abbotsford, Langley, Surrey, Tri-Cities, Vancouver, Burnaby Maple Ridge & Coquitlam. Commonly known for digging through trash cans and disturbing the outer areas of your home, raccoons can certainly become nuisances in areas such as your garden, forestry, garden ponds, chimneys or even your attic- if they can gain access.
Aside from behaving as a general pest in your home, raccoons also present a threat to household pets such as cats, or small dogs. Raccoons are very “food-driven”, and will become very aggressive in nature when confronted with the opportunity to feed themselves and their pack. Raccoons are surprisingly vicious when they feel they are under attack, or if they wish to attack out of fear or loss of food.
Since raccoons are quite active throughout the night, spotting these furry creatures can be tough for the untrained eye. If you have a raccoon in your home or a raccoon in your attic, spotting them becomes even harder. A trained exterminator will be able to best inspect, remove, treat and prevent raccoons from entering in and around your home.
Our Exterminators Get Rid of Raccoons
“How can I get rid of raccoons in my home and garden?”
As with all pest control services, it is best to leave it to a trained, insured professional. This ensures that not only is the job done correctly, but that you will also continue to be further protected. Our raccoon removal programs focus on exclusion, removal and clean up of a raccoon “invasion” in and around your home:
Our exterminators will fully inspect your home, garden and surrounding areas to ensure you are definitely dealing with a raccoon problem, where the raccoon(s) are nesting and the extent of the damage done. Understanding the behavioral patterns of these animals is crucial to understanding the extent to which additional damage can occur, that the untrained eye would not see or know to look for.
- Remove attractants
Our exterminators understand what draws raccoon(s) to a residence, and how the set up of your home could potentially be a cushy spot for a family of raccoons. Getting rid of raccoons first starts with making sure there is nothing attractive for them to return to.
Using humane trapping methods, our exterminators have perfected the process of using bait and cage traps to exclude the animal. Special care must be taken with these types of traps. Specific provincial laws must be followed when relocating raccoons and other wildlife, which can be overwhelming to take on yourself.
Our raccoon removal programs place great focus on making sure that raccoons do not return to your home. We seal entry points and create barriers to entry.
Raccoons have the ability to carry deadly diseases with them. Gilpin’s Pest Control wants to ensure that your home is left with no trace of contamination after experiencing a raccoon problem. Our exterminators fully sanitize your home and surrounding area of waste, droppings and general mess.
