Raccoons may be cute, but they can cause quite a raucous and are known to get aggressive. They are perhaps most well known for tipping over trash cans in search of food, but are also known to nest in your attic, under the eaves of your rooftop, or in the top of your chimney. It goes without saying that no one wants these creatures on their property. At Dugas Pest Control, we know how frustrating it can be to deal with these wild animals, which is why we’re proud to provide raccoon trapping and removal services.
Are raccoons dangerous?
Out in the wild, raccoons avoid contact with humans and pose little threat. When raccoons get in residential areas, however, they can feel on edge and show more aggression. Raccoons are filthy and can expose you to various diseases. In addition to the health hazards, raccoons can also cause significant damage to your property:
- If determined enough, raccoons can enter your home through the chimney or roof and cause significant structural damage in the process.
- With their sharp claws and teeth, they can easily damage your siding, insulation, wiring, and many other structures.
- If a raccoon decides to chew on your electrical wiring, you could find yourself without power or at a high risk of starting a fire.
