How To Get Rid Of a Raccoon
As adorable as they may appeal to the eye, Olympia raccoon removal raccoons can put you and your family in danger.
They can also cause your home a lot of damages. Sadly, for their aggressive nature, raccoons
are too often trapped and put down by homeowners. You may be wondering- how to get rid of a
raccoon, without actually harming or killing it?
One of the best ways to avoid having to put down these little animals is preventing them
from intruding your household in the first place. Raccoons will find their way into your property
through loose or broken fences, untrimmed tree branches, and rooftops, inadequately maintained attics.
Meaning, one of the best ways of avoiding having to deal with a raccoon invasion is maintaining your property.
Fix your fences, make them sturdy and tall. Fix all the doors and windows in your home. Don’t let any cracks slip
your eye, because those are the cracks a Olympia raccoon removal raccoon might use to claw its way in. Make sure to trim all the tree branches
in front of your yard fence, because they could serve as a mean for a raccoon to get into your front or back yard. The same
goes for rooftops. In fact, pregnant female raccoons, looking for a place to safely give birth to their cubs, will most likely
choose an attic as a place to ‘’stay’’.
Send it back into the wild: relocation
In case a little furry friend still manages to find its way in your home, it would be the best to try to relocate it.
Trapping and releasing a raccoon back to the wild is the first thing you should try. If it’s in any way possible, report
your situation to animal control. They will make sure that the Olympia snake removal animal is properly trapped, examined, treated for any possible
diseases and released back to the wild. This is an approach that animal control takes, in case they trap a healthy raccoon.
In case that the animal is critically ill or contagious, you will be notified and instructed to take necessary persuasions.
Trapping an animal hiding in your house is by all means not an easy task. Choosing to trap a raccoon by yourself can be
very dangerous for you, your family, and a raccoon. The right thing to do would be to have a professional deal with this
issue, but, if that option is not available to you, then trapping a raccoon on your own should be done in the most merciful
way possible. Choosing a proper bait and trap is crucial to make this venture safe. To avoid trapping other animals, use
sweets or marshmallows as bait. Go for Olympia snake removal cage traps, as they will not harm an animal. Death traps and grips are unnecessary
harmful to animals, and there is no way to make sure that another animal or a person will not get hurt.
Other than trapping an animal, you can also choose to repel it. Repelling is amongst popular tactics of handling
raccoons, and can be done in various ways. You can search for chemical repellants (sprays and powders), which
use strong and unpleasant taste and scent to drive away Olympia bat removal raccoons. They are available both online and in stores.
But, their effectiveness is often questioned. As sometimes they can be harmful to other animals, there are numerous
cases reported where they weren’t at all effective with raccoons. It is said that raccoons can quickly adjust to the
smell of a repellant, and, as intelligent as they are, also capable of finding alternative paths to avoid places treated with repellants.
Other than industrial chemical repellants, there are also many Olympia rat control formulas available for mixing up a homemade repellent. Most popular
repellants are in a form of liquid and made of boiled water, chili peppers, onions, and vinegar. It is advised to spray
vinegar on trash cans, to make them less appealing. Again, it is a lot better to just empty them on a regular basis.
Some mechanic solutions can often serve as good repellents. Animal control usually advice to keep your household well lit during the night.
To protect your attic, install some good quality lighting. Do the same thing on your porch and front and back yard. Homeowners report that
this technique has proven itself to be effective.Amongst other repellent options are also water spray, ultrasonic sound and mimicking
human presence using a radio. However, raccoons have learned how to beat these tactics very fast, homeowners report.
Other than not being too effective, repelling Olympia bat removal tactics are, in most cases only a temporary solution. If a raccoon has abandoned
its natural habitat, it will continue to attack one house after another. This is why relocation, and done by a professional,
is the most proper way to handle this Olympia bat removal situation.
Putting down a raccoon
The last resort in defending your home from a raccoon should be actually harming or killing it. However, this sometimes proves to be
necessary. If that animal can’t be repelled, or you don’t have any professional service available.
Ending a raccoon’s life is most often done with Olympia rat control deadly traps, drowning a trapped Olympia bird control raccoon, putting it down with a gun or by poisoning.
Indeed, these methods are rarely ever justified, and it’s up to you to try and exhaust all other options before doing something like
this. After all, like any other creature, a Olympia bat removal raccoon is following its survival instinct. But, a man is not a creature of instinct.
We own reason, and should be able to try and handle an animal as a rational human being.
