Skunk Trapping & Control


Windermere

Raccoons are nocturnal animals. They are usually black in color, and have a black tail with rings. They weigh around 10 to 20 pounds. They usually reside in forests, in barns, chimneys or even your attic. If you live near a forest, it is likely that a raccoon will one day knock over your trashcan looking a food source. They are opportunistic feeders, and so can be a real nuisance. Raccoons are omnivorous, so they feed on vegetables and poultry. There are various methods that will help you get rid of raccoons:

Fencing

Fencing will help exclude the raccoons from your property to do this, set up a two-wire electric fence that is connected to a DC battery. Also make sure that you install a temporary chimney cap. Since raccoons are nocturnal, they will not be able to gain access to your chimney when you are asleep. Make sure that you use a trashcan with a tight lid. Raccoons are usually attracted by the smell of your trash. Purchase a metal or plastic trashcans, which is difficult to open. You can also put a rock on top of the trashcan to make sure that the raccoon does not knock it over. Alternatively, you could put the garbage in containers sealed with bungee cords. Make sure you double bag foods that have intense smell such as meat, fish, etc. Most pests have an acute sense of smell, and they will be attracted to your trash. You can also spray the garbage with a repellent to disguise the smell of meat.

Trapping

This is the least preferred method. The most common is attracting the raccoon with food and trapping it in a cage or a box. However, some provinces have very strong regulations on trapping. If the province does not allow this, you could be prosecuted for violating animal rights!

It is also very dangerous to deal with raccoons face to face. They could be carrying germs, roundworms or rabies. You can even get leptospirosis from the raccoon feces. Another problem with this is that they are wild animals. A raccoon could decide to be defensive and hurt you.

Pest Control

This is the safest method. The Pest Control staff will deal with the vermin more effectively and without legal repercussion.

Why Do Skunks Dig?


Lake County Florida

If you have previously had a problem with raccoons and squirrels, then you know what a menace varmints can be. The same is also true for bats, especially knowing the fact that bats are carriers of the rabies virus. Remember, it is illegal to use poisons to kill bats, so it will be better if you opt for bat traps. However, research has shown that bats have a tendency to return to their roosting place even if they are 150 miles away. Hence, traps may not be a permanent solution to prevent bats from making a home in your house. In such a case, it would be best to go for a permanent bat control measure which ensures that bats do not return to roost in your home.

If you are not comfortable adopting bat control measures, then you can even hire a professional, but be prepared to shell out a few thousands based on the size of your home, the equipment used, the time spent on fixing the holes and crevices and the material used to seal off the holes and openings. Also, before hiring the services of a professional, it is best to get an estimate.

What is the Best Bait to Trap a Skunk?

One of the most common complaints involving nuisance wildlife is the noise they can produce in a home. Many home owners may be unaware that they even have an unwanted visitor in their home if not for the noise. Certain animals may spend their time crawling around (and doing other things) in their newfound home (your attic, soffits, walls, garage, etc.). The scurrying scratching, chewing, or vocal noise that you hear may be most unwelcome, particularly from nocturnal animals. The primary culprits are raccoons, squirrels, rats, and mice, but other creatures may be at work. Give me a call, and I will identify the source of the noise, as well the means by which the animals are entering the structure. Get the problem fixed, and you will sleep better at night!
