 RACCOON Removal in South Jersey

" How to tell if a raccoon has made your home his own"

During the winter food sources become scarce for animals such as raccoons and possums and shelter from the elements is essential.When foraging for food possums and raccoons will take advantage of open garbage cans and accessible pet food.When looking for shelter attic space in homes and buildings provide shelter and warmth. If you allow them access, they will readily move in and stay till spring.They can cause damage including torn insulation, chewed electric wires and odors from their excrement.

If you suspect animals are in your attic then it's time to evict them! If raccoons and possums are active in your yard, they can tear up turf, and destroy bird feeders and flower beds.If they feel threatened it is not uncommon for a raccoon or a possum to defend themselves by biting or scratching a home owner who may be trying to remove the animal from his/her property.A bite or scratch from a possum or a raccoon can spread disease to humans. It is not advised that you attempt to rid an indoor space from an intruding animal such as the possum or raccoon.

If you spot a raccoon on your property, it is important to steer clear of the animal. Raccoons are nocturnal creatures. Seeing one during the day may indicate that the animal is diseased. A diseased animal is more likely to feel vulnerable in the presence of human beings and therefor more likely to attack, claw or bite. Call a professional immediately. If you suspect there is an animal prowling around your home look for signs of damage, droppings, hair or perhaps tracks.Raccoon droppings resemble those of a medium dog and may contain seeds or other undigested particles such as fruit.They are often at the base of trees, along fence lines, woodpiles, on roofs or in unsealed attics.
