Raccoon Removal Quick and Easy
Raccoons can cause trouble when they seek a quick meal in our trashcans, but become a health hazard when they enter the home. All too often, raccoons will chew and claw through plaster, wood, and aluminum siding to access the warm interior of an attic or roof. Raccoons can carry rabies and other diseases that are associated with rats, which is often fatal to dogs.
Providing family-owned quality service for over 80 years, Abalon has removed wildlife at over 10,000 locations throughout Queens, Manhattan, Brooklyn, the Bronx, and Staten Island. We put those decades of experience to work for you. Call today for a free estimate.
3 Kinds of Raccoon Visitors
Raccoons may enter the home either for shelter or to nurture young. As with all animals, you should never approach a raccoon with young as it can quickly become vicious. Raccoons tend to be shy and nocturnal. If you come face to face with a raccoon, you have either entered its territory or it is not exhibiting normal raccoon behavior and should be considered diseased. In addition to shelter and raising young, there is a third reason a raccoon might enter your home: disease. A sick or injured raccoon will sometimes hide under your deck, porch, or wherever else it can squeeze in.
Other Raccoon Health Risks
Raccoons urinate and defecate in and around their den, severely damaging drywall, wood, and insulation, which are often above bedrooms. It’s vital to remove raccoons from your home promptly to avoid costly structural damage, invasive mold and mildew problems, and the risk of respiratory illness, particularly among children and the elderly. The process of removing a raccoon can be straightforward, but may expose the homeowner to noxious materials and dangerous conditions, even when the raccoon itself is healthy. For this reason, many homeowners choose to hire a professional pest control company to ensure that the job is completed promptly, safely, and before extensive damage to the home occurs.
Some websites suggest ways in which the homeowner can try to drive a raccoon out. We do not recommend this, as these methods fail to account for raccoons which may be nursing young and overall do not work for most homeowners. A homeowner who has a young child and learns that a raccoon has taken up residence is unlikely to want to simply wait for the raccoon to leave. If you feel that your family is in danger or at risk of being in contact with a raccoon, it’s time to call a licensed and insured professional with the experience to fix the problem fast.
Technicians from Abalon Exterminating can humanely relocate raccoons and their offspring, using traps and a special device referred to as an excluder or “one-way door.” Abalon can respond quickly to your raccoon removal needs, acting in just 4 hours to ensure that raccoons are safely removed and away from your family.
With more than 80 years of experience securing homes against animals, Abalon can quickly identify the methods that will be most effective for guarding your home against raccoons, preventing further costly damage. We answer our phones 24 hours a day and perform wildlife removal day or night, 7 days a week.
