racoonsRaccoons are widely known in the United States for being a wildlife nuisance. Being mostly nocturnal, they will raid trash cans or tear up homes, leaving homeowners unaware of the damages until it is too late.

Even though they will not hesitate eating out of the trash, raccoons are actually known to be one of a few species that will examine and wash their food before eating it.

Raccoons are colorblind but make up for it with their incredible vision and hearing which allow them to be able to live out in the wild for up to 3 years.

These animals are the number one carrier of rabies in North Carolina. Along with rabies, they carrier many other diseases including distemper and ring worms so it is always very important to keep your distance if you encounter a raccoon. Our raccoon removal services are easy and convenient to use.

If you have any open nooks or crannies around your property, this could be an inviting home for an opossum or racoon. Using wire mesh or wood, block these spots to create an extra layer of protection. Be sure to check around your porch, deck, and shed as those are common spots for wildlife to hide out. Dead trees and thick underbrush can also be attractive to unwanted creatures, so those should be removed as well.

If you or someone you know is having issues with these animals please contact us today so we can remove your unwanted guest and get your home back to normal! Our services extend to clients throughout the Asheville, NC; Salisbury, NC; Winston Salem, NC; Greensboro, NC; Mooresville, NC and Huntersville, NC areas.
