Dangers of DIY Raccoon Removal
While it may be tempting to approach or try to remove these nuisance critters yourself, you are putting your family and home at risk in doing so. Common dangers caused by nuisance raccoons include:
Damage to your property
Raccoons will damage your belongings with their claws and teeth. Lookout for shredded fabrics, screens, and insulation, footprints on cars and in flower beds, claw marks on your walls, and gnaw marks around your property.
Health and Safety Risks
According to the CDC, raccoons are one of the largest carriers of rabies in the U.S. and the east coast has a higher number or raccoons infected with the disease. The mischievous mammals can also carry diseases and infected parasites that can transmit illness to humans and pets through direct and indirect contact.
