Raccoons are agile and highly adaptable. They are excellent climbers and swimmers, which allows them to hunt for food in the water and on land. Raccoons often live in wooded areas, but they are also found in cities and suburbs, as well as rural areas. They often come inside looking for food or a warm place to den, but they don’t hibernate in the winter.
Signs of a raccoon infestation include:
- Damage to insulation, walls, or electrical wiring
- Garbage cans knocked over
- Raccoon pawprints in the yard
- Seeing droppings or urine stains
Raccoons can damage your home, create a huge mess, destroy gardens, damage crops, and create a potential health risk. In addition to property damage, raccoons are a major carrier of rabies in the United States. Removing raccoons and keeping them away is essential for protecting your home and family’s health.
Where Do Raccoons Sleep?
One of the most common questions about raccoons is about where they sleep. Raccoons do not have a specific den that they use for sleeping, but they will often take up residence in nearby trees or hollow logs. If a suitable tree or log is not available, raccoons will sometimes make their way into human dwellings in search of a place to rest, such as cars or sheds. They can be somewhat nomadic and make a new place to sleep every night; however, they may linger if you have a good food source for them or if your property simply has the best shelter choices for them.
Identifying Dens & Removing Raccoons
Noticing signs of a raccoon inhabiting your home is important, but you have to find where the animals are denning to eliminate the problem and keep the creatures away. The first step in our Boston and area raccoon control process is a thorough inspection of your home and surrounding property. Our wildlife specialists will carefully inspect your home and the immediate outdoor area to locate their dens.
After we have performed a careful inspection and found their dens, we will begin a trapping program to remove the animals. We then sanitize any accessible den areas inside your home to protect the health and safety of you and your family.
Permanent Raccoon Exclusion
If you want to keep raccoons out of your home permanently, it is important to identify all possible points of entry and block them. Our Armor Shield services provide a long-term, chemical-free wildlife exclusion solution. We can also help prevent raccoons from getting inside again by installing new chimney caps, sealing any entry points in the foundation, and repairing any damage done by raccoons to your home’s exterior, wood, flashing, shingles, and other materials.
