Raccoon Control Services
Raccoons are primarily nocturnal but live in constant search for shelter and food. They use their very adept “hands” to open garbage cans, remove siding and tear off shingles. Categorized as an extremely dangerous and destructive pest, they can cause significant structural damage to your home, infest living spaces with fleas and other parasites and can carry rabies and roundworm. If you’re a southwest Florida resident who suspect you have one of these masked bandits living under your roof, you should call a licensed raccoon removal professional immediately to protect your family and home.

PEST PROOFING PREVENTION TIPS:
There are a number of pest-proofing measures that homeowners can take to protect their home and families from the threats posed by raccoons. Hughes's raccoon control specialists recommend the following:
Raccoon Control Prevention Tips:
- Store boxes and containers off the floor and organize items often to prevent raccoons from residing in undisturbed areas.
- Seal cracks and holes, including areas where utilities and pipes enter the home.
- Store food in thick metal or plastic containers with tight lids.
- Clean up spilled food right away immediately and wash dishes and cooking utensils soon after use.
- Keep outside cooking areas and grills clean.
- Do not leave pet food or water bowls out overnight.
- Keep bird feeders away from the house and use squirrel guards to limit access to the feeder by raccoons.
- Use a thick plastic or metal garbage can with a tight lid and keep sealed at all times.
- Keep grains and animal feed in thick plastic or metal containers with tight lids. In the evening, return uneaten animal feed to containers with lids.
If you find raccoon feces, hear sounds of scurrying in the walls or observe other signs of a raccoon infestation, contact one of Hughes's licensed raccoon control specialists to inspect and treat the pest problem.
