Rooting Raccoons Out Of Their Hiding Spaces 

Raccoons are tricky little creatures. They prefer to live in moist woodland areas. They will also shelter near urban areas. Some common areas these pests build dens include inside trees, mines, caves, deserted buildings, abandoned trash cans/dumpsters, garages, sewer drains, and porches. As a general rule, raccoons do their best to avoid human interaction. They will pick their hiding spots in areas where they don't notice much human foot traffic. If you want to identify where raccoons are hiding on your property, consider investing in a professional wildlife inspection. Our team will visit your property and take a look around for nests. This is the safest and most effective method for identifying raccoons on your property. 

What To Do When You've Spotted Raccoons On Your Property

Raccoons are not aggressive creatures. However, they will bite and scratch if they feel trapped or threatened. If a raccoon is rabid, it will be more aggressive. Keeping these things in mind, if you spot one of these wildlife pests on your property, do not get too close. Note where you see them and get in touch with a professional. Our team at Delmar Pest Control has access to safety equipment and tools to relocate problematic wildlife threats like raccoons. Let us pay you a visit and take care of raccoons and any other wildlife issues on your property.
