Proper Humane Raccoon Removal in Winter

Although it is winter time, it does not mean that wildlife in the area is inactive; quite the contrary, in fact. This is the time of year when critters are looking for a safe place to stay and bring their babies into the world. Additionally, some of these visitors will stay in the same place for a long time, especially if the winter is harsh. Even though raccoons are not animals that typically stay in the same den throughout the whole winter, they can make quite a mess on your property during their stay. As soon as you notice them, you need to take action to have them removed immediately. Naturally, the best way to tackle the problem is to hire an expert provider of humane raccoon removal services.

A Safe Removal for Everyone

In case you are thinking about removing a raccoon from your home on your own – stop! This would be a dangerous task to complete in any season. You should keep in mind that snow can be really tricky; for example, even climbing a ladder is a risk since it can be icy and slippery which will make it harder to control your movements. Not to mention what could happen if you were to climb an icy roof without proper safety equipment. That is precisely why you should contact a professional company like Skedaddle Humane Wildlife Control, whose technicians are trained and qualified to remove wildlife from your property even in inclement weather.

Proper equipment, and handling are key to a humane wildlife removal.

Impact of Weather on Raccoon Removal

When you are trying to identify wildlife entry points and there is a thick layer of snow, the possibility that you will find them is quite low. This means that you should repair your home before winter comes. But, if you are late, there are professionals who can help you in this situation. The experts at Skedaddle are able to find the dens of wildlife that have invaded your home; Skedaddle visits hundreds of homes each year, so we know exactly where to look. Bear in mind that you should also have your home repaired once the winter is over. Wildlife can easily manipulate soft materials like vinyl, aluminum, and plastic to make their way into your house. Simply have all the holes sealed and you will be prepared for when the next winter comes.

Repairing the Damage Properly

It is best not to attempt quick repairs on your walls and attic. This is usually not enough and there is a great probability that wildlife will return for another visit. In order to stop this from happening, it is advisable to hire a professional. A professional will know exactly what needs to be done so that raccoons and other wildlife is not only removed from your home for good but also that no more invasions take place. Other benefits of a professional approach also include securing all the potentially vulnerable areas as well which can prevent your home from being damaged.

A Seasonal Approach to Raccoon Removal

Even though raccoons find their dens in winter, this does not mean they cannot be immediately removed. Of course, this is not something you should do on your own. Snow and ice can be tricky and you will be risking injuries and bites should you go for the DIY approach. Instead, the best solution is to contact a professional that specializes in humane raccoon removal.  The highly trained and equally experienced team at Skedaddle Humane Wildlife Control is efficient and capable of achieving this in a short amount of time. Skedaddle has been in business for nearly three decades and we have pioneered a humane and wholesome approach to wildlife removal, sanitization, and future-proofing against re-entry.
