Long Island Raccoon Removal
Raccoons are a bigger problem than small rodents like mice and rats. Those that venture onto your property can scatter trash, ruin your landscaping, and damage exterior wiring. But once they find their way inside your house, they can cause even more damage. If you find signs of a raccoon in your yard or attic, call a professional removal service immediately.
It can be costly and dangerous to remove a raccoon on your own. Poisons are strong enough to harm family pets and they can still leave the raccoon in your house. A better solution is to call a local raccoon control company that can:
- Set ground-based traps around your yard to humanely capture raccoons.
- Inspect your attic and wall spaces for signs of pests.
- Clean the interior of animal waste and parasites.
- Seal the holes and entryways that let animals inside.

Raccoons in the wild may not pose a problem, but when they decide to hang out at your place it can be a different story. These mammals can carry canine distemper, which can be hazardous to unvaccinated dogs, and rabies, which can be transmitted to people or other animals. Moreover, their feces often contain the eggs of Baylisascaris procynis, which is a type of roundworm that can be extremely harmful to people. Getting rid of raccoons and their droppings is not always easy, but there are several methods of raccoon removal that can be employed.
Raccoons are protected under state law in most cases, and are classified as furbearers, meaning a license or permit is required to trap or hunt them. Because of this, how to kill a raccoon legally will vary from state to state, and is a job best left to professionals. As with many types of nuisance animals and pests, the best way to get rid of raccoons is to not invite them in in the first place. Removing their food sources and making your environment less friendly should also encourage any raccoons that are there to move along. The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation recommends the following methods for raccoon control.
