Reading pest control

We are Pennsylvania's top experts in wildlife and raccoon control. We are not a typical Reading raccoon control or pest control company. We don't treat wild animals like insects, because they are not! You can't just use poison to get rid of them. You also can't just set a few traps on the ground and call it good. Each situation is unique. And remember, if you have raccoons living in your house, it is almost certainly a female with a litter of young inside. These juveniles must be removed by hand, or they will starve to death and die. And after they are gone, the entry holes into the house must be sealed with professional repairs. Unlike most Reading pest control, we focus on complete and permanent solutions, by following these steps:

  • Inspect the entire house, ground to roof, and the attic
  • Seal shut all entry areas with professional grade steel
  • If in attic, we remove the baby raccoons by hand
  • Technical and human raccoon trapping appropriate to situation
  • When necessary, we clean raccoon droppings and replace insulation

Reading Raccoon Control Tip: Should I Hire a Pro, or Remove Raccoons Myself? 
No one likes to deal with a raccoon problem. If you have one in your garden, your fruits and plants will get stolen for food. And if you have one in your house (the attic, chimney, or walls), it'll damage your property and put you and your loved ones at risk of many diseases. So, you must get it out!

But should you perform raccoon removal yourself or hire a pro? The honest answer is that it depends on a variety of factors. In this post, we explore these subtleties so you can decide on what's best. 

When Removing Raccoons, DIY Makes Sense
Most people will try out raccoon removal themselves to save money. But this shouldn't be your primary motivating factor. 

You may try removing the raccoon yourself when you're dealing with a minor problem, like a raccoon visiting your property at night for food. You can add repellents to your property, practice proper hygiene, and fence your garden to deny them access to food. 

If you know how to set traps, you can also try trapping a nuisance raccoon. But before you opt for trapping, make sure you confirm its legality in your district. 

Risks of Removing Raccoons Yourself
Raccoons are wild animals, and as such, they pose a series of risks to humans and pets. Before you decide to remove raccoons yourself, you should be fully aware of the potential risks involved. Some of which include:

  • Diseases
Viral diseases of raccoons include rabies, leptospirosis, and toxoplasmosis, among many others. Humans can easily contract these diseases from raccoons, either through a bite or scratch, or coming in direct contact with their feces, or breathing air that has been contaminated by bacteria from their droppings. Wearing the appropriate protective clothing is required to stay safe. 

  • Lawsuits and Fines
Many districts frown against the trapping and relocation of wildlife. So to avoid legal troubles and fines, it's important to find out what the law says in your jurisdiction. If you're not allowed to trap, relocate, or kill wildlife, then it's prudent to bring in a professional. 

  • Orphaning Kits
If you have a female raccoon living in your attic or chimney, chances are she's there raising her litter because of the safety and warmth your home provides. However, you cannot conclude if there are babies without a full inspection. If you capture the mother alone, you risk leaving the babies orphaned. And they're more likely to die as parental care is removed. You'd then have to deal with the problem of dead baby raccoons. 

  • Inhumane Treatment
As an amateur, you're more likely to treat the raccoon inhumanely. Even if you successfully trap the raccoon, how do you plan to dispose of it? Because of your limited knowledge, chances are you relocate it to a location where it's likely to die as it fails to adapt. Keeping a raccoon as a pet or caging it is also out of the option as it is cruel and inhumane. 

When Involving a Professional Makes Sense
Removing raccoons yourself is not worth the risk! Moreover, there's no guarantee that you'll succeed after putting in the time and effort. Wildlife removal professionals are good at what they do and you should hire one for raccoon removal, especially when faced with the following situations:

  • You have raccoons residing in your attic or chimney.
  • A raccoon is stuck in the wall of your building.
  • You need to trap and relocate the nuisance raccoon.
  • You're not fully aware of the risks involved in DIY raccoon removal.
  • A lot of damage has been done by the raccoon, and you'll need repair services too. 
  • Proper clean-up of the attic using enzyme cleanser and atomizer is needed.
  • There's a raccoon carcass you need to dispose of.
Wrap Up
While there are lots of YouTube videos on how to remove raccoons yourself, you should think twice before you proceed. For one, raccoons are wild animals capable of causing serious damages and posing serious health risks to your loved ones. To ensure optimal results while protecting the health of your family, getting a professional is non-negotiable.
