Winter has set in for 2018 and all furry animals are moving into a warm spot. Even if it’s in your own home. Did you know raccoons are strong and determined animals in which they can cause thousands of dollars in damage to your home? Raccoons are strong enough to rip apart the siding of your home, tear apart ducts, chew on wires, and play peek-a-boo with your installation.
Not only do they cause damage, but they can be very toxic. Raccoons are the primary host of carrying roundworms. The roundworm eggs are passed in the feces of the infected raccoon and can infect people including pets by ingesting the eggs. The raccoon feces and urine carry diseases such as leptospirosis, giardia and salmonella. The systems are nausea, abdominal cramps, diarrhea, aching muscles, headaches, fever, jaundice and dehydration. Pets and children are at a higher risk for rabies from infected raccoons by contact of the raccoon’s saliva from either a bite or scratch.
Elite Wildlife Removal has seen many homes in which raccoons have decided to redecorate when they move in. We professionalize in safely removing the animals from your home and provide complete restoration, so the animal(s) will not re-enter the same way.
