Raccoon Removal for Good in Richardson, TX

It is one thing to trap and remove raccoons; it is quite another thing to say adios to the varmints for good. After removing the wild animals from your Richardson, Texas home, the next priority is to raccoon proof your house. We start by installing a fence around the garden to protect plants and vegetable from famished raccoons. You should store trash bins inside the garage and/or basement. Wait until the night before garbage pick up to roll the full containers to the curb. We inspect your property thoroughly to locate possible hiding spots, as well as examine your roof and foundation for cracks large enough to attract adult raccoons. Unlike rats and rodents, raccoons require large holes and cracks to enter because of the lack of a limber body frame.

How to Catch Raccoons

Despite our sense of urgency, we take the time needed to remove raccoons from your home humanely. The wild animals love dining on sweet foods and fatty meats, which we use as bait to lure raccoons into spacious cages. We never poison our bait and we ensure raccoons have plenty of room to enjoy the long ride into the country. The best bait placement motivates a raccoon to enter a cage completely and encourages a raccoon to hit the door slide trigger. We highly recommend you contact our experienced team of raccoon removal specialists to get the trapping job done right.
