Why Humane Raccoon Removal Is NecessaryLike many other animals, raccoons are trying their best to coexist with humans as urbanization encroaches on and removes more of their natural habitats. Raccoons are nocturnal and like quiet places to den during the daytime. This is why attics and other enclosed spaces are attractive areas for them to settle. If you think a raccoon is living in your home, here is why it’s important to seek professional help.
- Preserves home life: Raccoons are looking for home sweet home. When they enter someone’s house, they have no intention to be bothersome to the humans living there. It is important to protect the family structure of raccoons. Abrupt removal and relocation disrupts their lives and is a terrifying experience for them. Experts know how to safely remove raccoons to minimize trauma and keep families intact.
- Protects the babies: When babies are present, it is critical they not be separated from their mothers. We know how to professionally evaluate the situation and check to see if this is a family affair or a single raccoon. Mothers will have babies in attics during the spring and summer months, and these enclosed spaces protect their young while they leave to get food. The newborns can be well hidden, so it’s important to never remove a raccoon without a thorough assessment of the situation.
- Averts short-term solutions: Removal of raccoons is often a temporary fix. The area always has more of them that may decide to use your attic in the future. It is important to humanely deter them from returning to your home by closing off access and entry points.
