How can Eastern Pine Pest & Wildlife service help with your raccoon problem?
One of the most common scenarios we see with regards to raccoons in Massachusetts (and, indeed, anywhere) is raccoons getting into our trash and making a massive mess. Note: most of the time, our help isn’t even needed for this. The most effective method to solving your raccoon vs trash issues, is to install a really good trash shed with heavy duty trash bins, which will make it much more difficult for raccoons to get into your trash.
The other raccoon situation we often run across is not as simple to solve: when raccoons invade your attic spaces and chimneys, it is time to call in our professional help and expertise.
Typically, you will find that the raccoons in your home are females and their offspring. As an incredibly protective species, females tend to enter our homes when they are ready to give birth and on the lookout for the most secure, safe locations they can find. And while female raccoons give birth once a year in Spring, with one to eight babies on average, their homemaking isn’t limited to Spring. Once they’re in, they might stay forever.
Of course, given the multitude of issues already mentioned, allowing them to stay is not an option. In order to remove racoons from homes humanely and safely, we employ a selection of techniques and solutions which may include one-way doors and/or live-trapping.
Once the raccoons are safely excluded from your home, we set to work on tightly sealing up existing entrance points to prevent this issue from recurring. We will also seal up any additional areas we find to avoid issues from new entry points.
By sealing up all entry points, and identifying potential entry points to shore up, at Eastern Pine we show a commitment to and focus on long-term wildlife removal solutions.
