Not only should you be concerned about raccoon-proofing your property, it is equally important to get rid of a raccoon problem as soon as you are aware there is one. That is because the sooner raccoons can be abated, the less damage is likely to take place. This can save you time, money, and stress. Just keep in mind that raccoon removal is not a job for you. It is vital to hire a state-licensed and certified company.

☑ State Authority
Raccoons are known to carry diseases and may even attack people or pets if threatened, ill, or provoked. They are also exotic wildlife that can only be handled and transported by state certified authorities. These factors, and many more, are just some of the reasons why raccoons can only be dealt with by certified professionals. A licensed and skilled raccoon abatement specialist retains the proper licensing to work with exotic wildlife, and furthermore, retains the knowledge and resources to operate within established industry standards and best practices, as well as, in accordance with local, state, and federal laws that govern wildlife.
Professionals are highly trained and experienced in the animal and raccoon control industry. They typically have years of service within the trade. Experience allows them to be prepared for anything because they have most likely seen it all within the time they’ve been in the business. Preparation and training are vital prerequisites for safe and successful raccoon removal.
☑ Equipment and Resources
A professional raccoon control company will also retain the necessary equipment, tools, and resources to manage raccoons. Their equipment and gear is specialized for the industry, and specially designed to not harm raccoons, other wildlife, the surrounding environment, and humans. Examples include live traps, artificial hormones, state of the art luminosities, atomizing mist machines, heavy gauge galvanized steel mesh screening, industrial caulking, high-density polyurethane foam, and automated static noise devices. Furthermore, professionals know how to properly use this industry equipment to abate raccoons.
☑ Cleanup and Restoration
One other important reason to hire a professional for raccoon removal is the mess. Raccoons are highly destructive and typically leave behind massive damages and unsanitary conditions. Professionals retain the state-of-the-art technologies to implement proper cleaning and restoration work for any type of property, regardless of size or scope. Cleaning and repairs generally involve animal waste removal, disinfection, sanitization, deodorization, louse fumigation, drywall and insulation replacement, and more. The remediation process may include a final treatment applied with an innovative atomizing mist machine, which produces a fog of enzyme-based hazardous waste cleanser to ensure a property is 100% decontaminated.
