OMEGA ANIMAL REMOVAL GETS RID OF RACCOONS
Omega Animal Removal has been monitoring the increasingly problematic raccoon population throughout Texas for years. As with many urban areas, these nuisances are intelligent and adept climbers with innovative methods for sneaking into your home or office to raid for scraps. They are famous for knocking over garbage cans and spreading the contents all over your yard in search of food. They eat just about anything so be sure to keep your pet food inside away from these sneaky creatures. Raccoons are also the number one carriers of rabies in Texas.
Being in their proximity is highly dangerous for humans and pets. This makes even cleaning up debris that has been scattered by raccoons dangerous for your health. You can take preventative measures to keep raccoons out of your garbage cans. Make sure they are sturdy and crafted from tough materials with a tight-fitting lid. Add locks and attach them to racks that keep them from being tipped over. With their superior climbing skills, raccoons frequently nest in existing structures and buildings, seeking shelter in dry, dark places.
Raccoons can sometimes find their way into your home’s attic space. This is always a huge problem because they infest your insulation with fleas and ticks, urinate and defecate all over your ceiling, spreading diseases. Raccoons also destroy lawns and gardens digging for worms and devouring all vegetables and herbs in sight. Be sure to keep your pet doors locked at night to prevent these nocturnal nuisances from sneaking into your homes while you are sleeping. Preventative measures can be helpful, but once a raccoon has decided to settle in your attic or crawlspace there is very little you can do without the help of a trained professional.
SIGNS OF A RACCOON INFESTATION
Raccoons should be shown the door sooner rather than later. So if you notice any of the following, give Omega Animal Removal a call:
- Overturned garbage cans and litter in your yard
- Tracks about the size of a small dog
- Fecal droppings 2 to 3 inches in length
- Heavy thumping at night coming from your ceiling or walls
- Seeing a raccoon itself is frequently a dubious sign
