Now is the Time to Beware of Potential Raccoon Infestations

Winter is around the corner, and Fall is already upon us. This means that hibernating, or breeding mammals are looking for safe shelter until Spring is here again. In suburban or city areas, raccoons and other animals are forced to find shelter in residential and commercial properties due to land over-development and lack of outdoor space. So this time of year is when most raccoon infestations begin.

Because raccoons are so intelligent, they are very capable of remembering where dominant food sources are located, and how to gain access into a warm and cozy environment. Continue reading to learn how to combat this problem with effective preventative maintenance and raccoon-proofing strategies for your home or office.


Raccoon infestations can cause an excessive, smelly mess of urine, breeding debris, and droppings, as well as, extensive structural damages and more. A messy raccoon infestation calls for a professional animal removal service that specializes in raccoons. They retain the proper tools, equipment, licensing, and training to accurately assess a raccoon problem, and render safe, effective, and humane raccoon control services. This is what you should do if you suspect you already have a raccoon infestation in your attic, crawl space, walls, or outdoor area of your property.

In order to prevent raccoons in the attic, or any other type of raccoon infestation or problem, implement some easy DIY techniques to thwart wildlife from trespassing onto your property. For example, remove all pet food dishes from outside. Pet food, bird seed, and gardens are all huge attractions and treats for raccoons and other wild animals. Remove bird feeders and pet food, and you have begun the journey to a raccoon-free life.

Also, never take your garbage outside to the driveway the night before trash pickup. Raccoons are scavengers and will rip through all your garbage for scraps of food and nesting material. This means you wake up to a huge mess in your driveway, plus a guarantee return from your new four-legged friends. They will remember your yard as a food source and return for more. By removing these attractions, you can make raccoons lose interest in your property. Last, have a professional Louisville raccoon removal company implement professional inspection and sealing services to ensure your home is free from vulnerabilities that would allow raccoons to gain entry inside. Things like broken doors, hinges, loose roof shingles, and more can be fixed to prevent accessibility.
