Raccoons are very intelligent and resourceful. This is why our 50 point inspection is designed to identify all current and potential raccoon entry points as well as any damage they may have caused. Our hands-on removal techniques are both humane and effective for adult and baby raccoons alike.
Raccoons are not very clean and their presence can lead to severe property damage. Skedaddle offers thorough cleaning and disinfecting of raccoon den sites to eliminate any health risks. We can also remove and replace any damaged attic insulation.
Once the raccoons are gone you want to make sure your home is protected against future entries. Our wildlife technicians are experts in identifying and securing vulnerable areas of your home with exclusion materials that are built to last.
When I called to book an inspection, I was given a quick booking time. James M came within the window of time, called ahead and was professional upon arrival. He was able to assess the property and give me a plan of action! He was able to provide great solutions to the problem! I would recommend!
Even though raccoons are nocturnal animals, there are few people who are unfamiliar with the black-masked, ring-tailed mammal. They are well known for their clever nature and escapades in people’s garbage bins.
While some may find raccoons cute, they can also be a nuisance for homeowners. It is bad enough that they make a mess of your yard and help themselves to the garden veggies, but they also have the smarts to get into your home. Here they do a lot of damage and can become a health hazard as well. If you discover that the masked bandit has invited itself into your space, you can trust the technicians at Skedaddle to evict it using methods that are safe and humane. Once we’ve completed the task and cleaned up after your uninvited houseguest, we seal off all entry points so they cannot return.
Raccoons are common in Richmond Hill. Normally, the masked bandit and residents have a pretty simpatico relationship. They have adapted to our human habitat and generally finds their food and shelter in non-destructive ways. However, when the weather turns colder, raccoons are more likely to seek out places like our attics for denning because they offer a safe and warm place to sleep away the days.
Raccoons are omnivores who can eat anything edible. Their normal diet consists of berries, fruits and nuts, as well as rabbits, fish, frogs and mice. They are also quick learners, so once they’ve discovered the buffet your trash bins offer, they will keep returning for an easy meal. Raccoons are not aggressive animals, but if they feel threatened, they can attack. You don’t want to be on the receiving end of a swipe from their sharp claws or a gnash from their teeth. Let the trained professionals at Skedaddle take care of the removal.
Though the common raccoon is the only species found in North America, there are six other species that are found in other parts of the world.
Raccoons are great sprinters, reaching speeds of up to 24 kilometres per hour.
When a raccoon takes a tumble from a building or tree that is 12 metres high, it isn’t likely to get hurt at all.
The black mask is not a disguise, but it might actually be an identifier that lets other raccoons know who they are interacting with.
