When Should I Call a Raccoon Exterminator?

Although spring is a busy season for raccoons, you don’t have to accommodate extra activity on your property during any time of year. Whether in search of food, on the run from danger, or in need of a safer shelter, raccoons can easily end up nesting in your home. But when exactly should you call a raccoon exterminator for help? If you notice any of the following signs, it might be the right time.

Interior Nesting

It’s time to call a wildlife management provider if you notice any strange behavior inside your home. However, some of the most common signs specific to a raccoon infestation include:

  • Smudge marks
  • Dropping piles
  • Nightly scratching noises
  • Strong urine smell

The best way to avoid the costs, damage, and risks of a raccoon infestation is to call a wildlife professional as soon as you notice signs of one in your home.

Property Damage

Once raccoons are inside your home, they can cause damage from top to bottom. Common remnants of a raccoon infestation include:

After noticing any damage that could be caused by raccoons, call for immediate animal control assistance. Otherwise, the damage and associated costs will continue to grow.

Safety Concerns

If you try to approach a raccoon, you put yourself at risk of bite or scratch. Through direct contact, raccoons can spread diseases to other animals and humans, such as:

  • Rabies
  • Leptospirosis
  • Roundworm
  • Salmonellosis

However, even if you don’t come in contact with a raccoon, your entire home is susceptible to food and water contamination. If you or anyone else in your home experiences a raccoon sighting or attack, contact your local wildlife management provider immediately.
