Raccoon removal

Yes! Try kicking one and you will find out in a second. Raccoons can be extremely aggressive especially when they have young. A full grown female raccoon can weigh up to 40 lbs. and she will growl just to let you know she is angry right before she may try and attack you.

Do not try and engage a pissed off raccoon! some raccoon have been found to have rabies.

For the most part raccoon are the silly masked bandits that cause mischief in the night. They try to avoid human contact and in fact most of the time they are just seen on the back porch stealing cat food or rummaging through the garbage can.

The only time a raccoon can be dangerous is if they infected by rabies, which they are typically found this way during the day walking around and acting out of character or if they chew their way into  a structure such as a building, attic space, chimney or eve to have babies.

Raccoons are nocturnal by nature and tend only to come out at night, though if the habitat is harsh and food not readily available they can be seen by day foraging food.

One thing to remember is that the raccoon will eat just about anything. they are carnivores by nature but in times of need they will eat anything! even trash!!ugh…

Local Houston, TX 832-324-9035 Bat Removal, Bats in the Attic, Bat Control

Bat Removal from your home can be a daunting task. In most instances it is necessary to have a Wildlife Professional to assist you in this endeavor. Bats can fit into the smallest of voids or openings in fact if you can fit a match book into the void a bat can get in it.  Its no wonder very few wildlife professionals can handle this task.

She’s the same species as the other bats I catch , which are big brown bats, Eptesicus fuscus. I caught this one in the hallway. She’s not baring her teeth at me, she’s echolocating. I call her “Bird bat”. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

The Wildlife Professionals can remove theses pest whether the bats  are in your attic, soffit or chimney we can remove them safely and humanely. the Wildlife Pros at Houton are the clear choice for Houston Bat Control. Trained, certified and licensed our techs are highly trained to accomplish your bat removal process.

Bats are the only true flying mammals. There are many species in Houston Texas and all of them are beneficial insect eaters, consuming literally tons of harmful insects each night. The most common species to move into houses is the Little Brown Bat (Myotis lucifugus). These small animals are about 3-1/2 inches long with an 8 inch wingspread. Their colors range from yellow-brown to dark brown.

Little Brown Bats roost in groups and are drawn to hot attics and wall voids in the spring and summer to bear their young (one per female) from about June-August. In the fall, most of these bats fly to winter hibernation roosts in caves or old mine shafts.

Health Hazards

Bats in Houston, Texas should not be regarded as dangerous. However, about one bat in a thousand MAY have rabies which eventually kills them. Little Brown Bats cannot easily transmit this disease to humans or pets due to their small teeth but problems can arise from trying to touch or pick up a sick bat. Unprovoked attacks are extremely rare.

If bitten by a bat or if infectious material (such as saliva) from a bat gets into your eyes, nose, mouth, or a wound — wash the affected area thoroughly and get medical advice immediately. If a bat is found in a room with a sleeping person, capture it without damaging the head and place it in a container (See the CDC page on “Bats and Rabies” for more information and correct procedures). Dead bats should be kept under refrigeration until tested. Contact your local Health District as soon as possible. To avoid this disease, simply avoid touching bats, be sure your house is bat-proof (at least the living area) and be sure your pets are vaccinated. Call your veterinarian for vaccination information.

Histoplasmosis is another hazard in some states . This airborne disease may be carried in bird and bat droppings. Few people exposed to this fungal disease become seriously ill but there is a potential risk of infection to any one removing or disturbing old, dusty bird or bat guano.

I receive calls from frantic homeowners in Indianapolis, IN every year about scary noises coming from the attic. These noises more often than not are raccoon removal in nature. Although lovable cartoon characters, an actual live wild raccoon can be a nuisance and a bit frightening. The truth in the matter raccoons will bite if they feel frightened. Always call a wildlife professional to trap and remove the conflict raccoon or raccoon family living in your attic.

Families across the nation have found themselves in the midst of animal control issues for years now. Back years ago a pest control company dealing with pest control such as insects and bugs were the first call for these wildlife conflicts. The truth is pest control companies are not trained or equipped to handle most nuisance wildlife issues in a home, business or church. Old time trappers have adapted and have become the new face of nuisance wildlife removal. Trappers have transcended into new roles as animal control and preventative animal control and as the years have past we have become the new “Indianapolis, IN Animal Control Officers in Nuisance Wildlife Removal” . Indianapolis, IN Pest Control Companies will try to have a tech that will get licensed and that is fine. Just remember that tech is paid by the hour and has no liability for the work completed. All liability is on the pest control company.

A raccoon will use your attics insulation as a latrine and will defecate(poop), urinate (pee) and tear up your attic insulation. in some extreme cases cause ceiling failure allowing the raccoon family direct access to your living spaces. A coon family living in your attic will continue to have more young. in fact if the a female is killed her sister or even her daughter will move in and begin to make families of her own. Only by trapping the raccoon from the attic can the conflict begin to be fixed.

Once the raccoon or raccoons have been removed from your home a attic restoration or attic clean out will need to be completed. This is the act of removing attic insulation and the feces impacted insulation. All contaminated insulation must be removed. The feces impacted insulation is considered hazardous material and should be removed by professionals. The raccoon carries a round worm that can be fatal to humans.

Once the insulation is removed it is best to have the insulation blown in. There are products out there that boast pest control and they are a great product. However, if the job was completed correctly the expensive insulation shouldn’t be necessary.

In conclusion raccoon or coon removal be experienced raccoon control and coon control experts are the best call when dealing with raccoon removal or coon removal issues in Indianapolis, IN.
