Why Raccoons Invade Addison, Texas Homes

Many of customers ask the same question: Since winters are typically bearable in central Texas, why do raccoons enter homes for the entire season. Weather represents one of the reasons raccoons invade Addison, Texas homes, but not to keep momma raccoon dry and warm. Raccoons invade homes because a pregnant mother needs a secure place to shack up when it is time to deliver multiple babies. Attics offer the dry warmth that protects raccoon infants from sometimes harsh central Texas weather. Mother raccoons also like to move into homes because it reduces the threat posed by other wild animals. Moreover, outdoor food sources dwindle during winter and a home stocked with food offers the best opportunity to feed the babies.

Tips for Preventing a Raccoon Infestation

The raccoon removal specialists at Brinker explain to each of our Addison, TX customers how to prevent a raccoon invasion. First, ensure every possible entry way along the roof and basement is sealed closed. Unlike smaller rodents such as rats and mice, raccoons require large holes or cracks to gain access to homes. Second, weigh down the lids on the garbage containers to prevent raccoons from digging in for a meal. Raccoons attracted to a home because of unsecured trash vessels are more likely to try entering the home.

We recommend our customers add screen vents around windows and over chimneys. Raccoons love the gaping entrance a chimney provides. Store all dry food in cabinets or in areas well above ground. Raccoons can detect food left unattended in basements and within open pantries. Ventilate the areas of your home where moisture accumulates. In addition to food, raccoons and their offspring require a healthy dose of water to remain nourished.

Whenever raccoons feel threaten, the destructive animals can become aggressive and cause serious injuries that require months, if not years of rehabilitation. Poisoning raccoons might seem like an effective way to get rid of the pests, but what happens when a poisoned raccoon returns to the wild and dies? The answer is other wild animals are at risk of ingesting the same poison that killed the raccoon.
