Raccoon Removal Services, Cleveland

Raccoons are resourceful pests that can quickly wear out their welcome in your home or around your property.  Raccoons are moderate-sized mammals averaging between two and three feet in length.  They can weigh up to 25 lbs. however, this can vary based upon habitat and nutrition.  Raccoons possess dexterous toes on their paws that give them a destructive capability unlike many of their wildlife counterparts

Potential Risks

Raccoon removal is necessary due to the various risks to humans and their pets that they pose. Raccoons can be carriers of diseases such as roundworm, trichinosis, and rabies.  Additionally, raccoons can draw predators that bring completely different concerns and risks with them.  When raccoons are plentiful in an area, they can also become a risk to drivers as they are known to cross roads and interfere with traffic.

Raccoons are more of a nuisance than a serious risk, however, they can damage property, strew garbage, and attract unwanted predators.  Raccoons often will seek to make shelters in attics, barns, and crawl spaces.  If you believe you have a raccoon problem in your home, please don’t hesitate to call The Animal Guy!

Raccoon Habitats

Raccoons are nocturnal creatures that are abundant in most areas of the United States except the Southwest.  These creatures’ diet is determined predominately by their environment.  Raccoon populations do very well in urban areas as the hunting and trapping regulations keep them artificially unimpeded.  Raccoons’ predators can include bobcats, cougars, and coyotes depending on their location.
