Raccoon Removal and Control Services
Many consider raccoons to be cute and cuddly, but this is a dangerous assumption. Raccoons are the primary vector species for rabies in the Southeast. Even when another animal is infected, the disease is often of the raccoon strain. If you find that your home has been invaded by these animals, turn to us for no-kill raccoon removal and control solutions serving Palm Beach, Boward, Martin, and South Florida.
Raccoons often have their young, called kits, in attics. Females have a strong maternal instinct and can become quite vicious when protecting their young in and around human dwellings. Though some small bachelor groups have been observed, raccoons are not pack animals. Most groups of raccoons seen together are a mother and her young.
Male raccoons tend to stay near females during breeding season, but move off on their own long before the young arrive. Two popular myths are that raccoons always wash their food and that raccoons lack salivary glands. Raccoons often wet their food because this helps with tactile sensation more than to clean their food. Raccoons do, in fact, have salivary glands. Remember that to transmit rabies their saliva has to come in contact with a bite or other break in the skin.
If you hear noises in the attic at night or have raccoons raiding your trash cans, call us immediately. We can diagnose your raccoon control and removal problem, trap the offending individuals, and provide the necessary repairs to cover all holes and construction gaps.
