Humane Raccoon Removal in Vancouver

Raccoon problem in the Vancouver area? Contact All Green Pest Control for animal removals and cleanups!

Raccoons can destroy nearly anything to get access to a prospective den or food supply. Taking residence in cities and suburbs, these active mammals can cause a mess in attics, chimneys, soffits, and walls.

They generally weigh 10 to 30 pounds and can squeeze their way through the tightest of spaces. Dedicated scavengers, raccoons like making a home in insulated attics to keep warm, but can often be found stuck in chimneys, hiding under cars, and scratching inside walls.

In their pursuit of grubs and earthworms, raccoons frequently damage lawns and gardens. Chafer beetles, a favorite feast of raccoons, are familiar to us in the Vancouver, British Columbia, area. The soil of front and backyard lawns are frequently used by the chafer beetle to bury its larvae. If your grass lawn happens to have chafer beetle larvae, a raccoon can completely wreck that yard in one night!

Besides wreaking havoc on physical structures, raccoons also carry a multitude of wildlife diseases. The accumulation of their urine and feces within a building can pose serious health risks that shouldn’t be ignored.

All Green Pest Control specializes in full-service raccoon removal as well as raccoon-related clean-ups. We have served Vancouver and surrounding communities since 2016. If you suspect you have raccoons causing damage to your home, contact us to schedule your raccoon removal inspection.

Once inside a structure, raccoons pose several notable risks worth keeping an eye on. If you’ve got a raccoon problem, don’t wait. Call All Green to get them out today!

Insulation Damage

Pavement Ants in Vancouver

Raccoons, like other animals, are constantly in search of a safe place where they can scavenge and protect their young. The insulation in walls and attics provides a perfect, warm, cozy home for raccoons and their offspring. Their presence can destroy your insulation, causing thousands of dollars in damage and reducing your energy efficiency.

Electrical Damage

Pavement Ants in Vancouver

Raccoons love to chew, gnaw, and bite. Because they have flexible, strong paws, they can also yank and pull at electrical wiring that may be in their way. Once exposed, damaged electrical wiring poses fire risks. It can also affect outlet grounds and the electricity supplied to parts of your home.

Health Risks

Pavement Ants in Vancouver

Raccoons can pose serious health risks to those exposed to their presence. Raccoon-carried rabies is a primary concern, as well as the neurotoxic parasitic roundworm. This parasite can be found in accumulated raccoon feces, and its eggs are resilient and easily transferred. A roundworm infection can cause nausea, vertigo, blindness, and in some cases, death.

Raccoon Prevention

Follow these tips to keep raccoons, other pests and wildlife out of your home.

So the racoons are gone. Make sure they stay gone with All Green Pest Control.

Part of our procedure is blocking off all potential access points for these pests. Repeat-removal jobs may be lucrative but that is not how our business operates! We make sure that all potential entry points – from the roof to the foundation – are effectively sealed the first time so that raccoons cannot enter your house or structure again. With our removal work and your everyday vigilance, your home can stay raccoon-free. Make sure to follow our preventive tips to ensure a home that is not tempting to these animals or other pests.

Seal Trash Cans

As previously mentioned, raccoons are talented scavengers. Overflowing trash cans, improperly sealed bags, and exposed waste and scraps are targets for raccoons. They will easily climb into your trash cans! To keep your trash bins from tipping over, use sturdy garbage cans with lockable lids, and strategically place them on a level surface.

Eliminate Pest Food Sources

It’s not just trash cans that raccoons scavenge. They also grab food from bird feeders, unattended pet bowls, and other foodstuff left outdoors. To keep these tricky mammals away, ensure you don’t feed raccoons – unintentionally or otherwise! If raccoons get a sense that they can effectively scavenge an area, they’ll do everything they can to take residence.

Manage Entry Points

Soffits, loose siding, gaps in roofing vents, and unsealed chimneys all provide raccoons with easy access to your home. Ensuring your structure is clear of potential entry points will go a long way in mitigating potential raccoon-induced damage.

Lock up the shed and garage doors at night and in the afternoon. Make sure tree limbs are not touching your rooftops. Use chimney caps and patch any leaking roofs and walls. You can also try soffit protection netting which can prevent animals such as raccoons and birds from roosting.

Before trying to seal the entry points, be sure all the raccoons are out! After being pulled from a wall, a mother raccoon and her babies are prepared to be reunited outside.

Have pests taken up residence in your building, or are they just hanging out there? Don’t wait to find out. Raccoons, squirrels, birds, and other pests can all be permanently kept out of your structure. You can rely on All Green Pest Control’s expertise, knowledge and experience in this field.
