Raccoons may be cute to some people but they are not meant to be kept around the house. If you do have them on your property, you will need to get help for raccoon removal and animal control. It should not be attempted by yourself.

Raccoons can be a huge annoyance at your home. They can be really noisy, finish your pet's food and be destructive in general. They will strew trash around. They may even cause structural damage to the building.

More than that, where there are raccoons, there are raccoon feces and these can contain parasites. The spores may become airborne and sicken people. In addition, raccoons may carry canine distemper and rabies, causing people or pets to be infected if bitten.

On top of all this, raccoons are not in the least bit timid. They show no fear of humans, nor do they run from bright lights or loud noises. If they are cornered, they will become very aggressive. For all the above reasons, you would do well to seek out professionals to help you in removing them from your home.

Generally, raccoons must be strapped. For the person with experience, this is not usually that difficult. In some cases, however, babies can be involved and this will need the use of other methods also.

As there often are offspring, it is not smart to just figure out how to block the adult from entering. If there are babies hidden, they will now be left to die. You will have no idea they are there until you start to notice the smell. At that point, you will need help in finding them.
