Salt Lake City, U.S., Aug. 24, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – Raccoons may look cute with their bandit-style masks and charming waddles, but they’re a real problem for Utah residents. They take control of attics, sheds and barns, rummage through dumpsters, leave droppings that can be harmful to humans, and even fight to the death.
AAAC Wildlife Removal of Salt Lake City are experts when it comes to humane raccoon removal. The pest control team oversees both residential and commercial properties in Salt Lake City and uses specialized equipment, backed by years of knowledge and experience, to not only successfully capture and remove raccoons, but also to repair your home so they can barely return.
Below are five tell-tale signs that your home has a raccoon problem and explain who to call if you need a wildlife removal expert:
- You heard noises in your ceiling or in your attic at night
Raccoons love attics. The reason they live in attics is because they are mostly safe places to raise their young. However, they can be considered noisy neighbors and you will most likely hear them scratching, gnawing, or arguing late at night and early in the morning when your home is quietest.
- You found trash thrown around in your yard
It’s no secret that raccoons love to rummage around in the trash, feed on trash, and find food to bring for their cubs. While they are very intelligent animals, they don’t cover their tracks well, and it’s easy to tell when a raccoon has fished through your trash as it likely looks like a bomb. They usually do this early in the morning /
- You can see scratches and gnaw marks in pipes and electrical wiring
If you’ve been brave enough to step into your attic or shed and the raccoons aren’t there, you can see clear signs that raccoons have not only lived on your property but are coming back. Very often they gnaw through pipes and electrical cables to sharpen their teeth or reach water sources, and scratch marks are also visible. If the signs are clear, you will most likely need to call a raccoon control specialist.
- There are visible feces and excrement in your attic, shed, barn, or hot tub
Unfortunately, raccoons are not toilet trained, and this can turn your attic, shed, barn, or even hot tub into their bathroom. A raccoon’s feces can be infected with roundworms, which is a significant health hazard to anyone who touches it. In fact, the Utah raccoon-borne roundworm routinely hits children as they are most likely to ingest the droppings in the garden or playground. Never clean up the mess yourself – always call a wildlife removal expert.
- (Perhaps the most obvious!) You have spotted a raccoon in your home or yard
Raccoons will do their best to avoid contact with you. However, if you’ve spotted one or more raccoons on your property, it is important that you call a raccoon pest control team as early as possible to resolve the problem. The team you call should abide by the rules and regulations surrounding animal trapping, and you should never hire a pest control service that uses poison. This carries many risks as the unsafe substance can be easily tracked around your home, putting your family and pets at risk.
