What To Do If You Have Raccoons In Your Yard

Evan Patterson

Raccoons are wild animals that will forage for food and aren't afraid to go roaming into your yard to find whatever they need in order to survive and thrive. If you find that you have raccoons in your yard, there may be a few things you can do to get rid of them and prevent them from returning. Read on for helpful information to use as a guide to get rid of raccoons if you happen to have them in your yard.

Keep Trash Contained

Again, raccoons are foragers, so they will look for food anywhere, including in your trash. You may have spotted trash outside of your trash cans or spread around your yard where they have opened up your trash bags and spread them around without a care in the world to find what they need to eat to survive. If you have trash cans that don't have lids that will seal tightly, you need to invest in better trash cans. Your trash cans should be heavy enough that they cannot be easily tipped over by raccoons and they should have a lid that closes tightly and are not able to remove the lid. Your trash needs to remain contained so they cannot easily find food in your yard. If raccoons cannot find food in your yard, they'll move on on their own accord.

Remove All Rubbish

Rubbish in your yard needs to be removed to prevent these pests from having a place to hide and nest. If you have piles of landscaping, piles of wood, or other piles in your yard, it is a great place for raccoons and other pests to hide and remain safe. If you have these piles in your yard, you need to have them removed. Take the piles of landscaping to a compost site. If you have piles of wood, stack it nicely and keep it further out in your yard to prevent raccoons or other pests from living in it. Other trash piles need to be cleaned out and removed.

Keep Your Yard Trimmed And Neat

If your yard is overgrown, you don't mow often, you have overgrown trees or bushes, or you just have a yard that is in disarray, it could be a great place for raccoons to easily get into and remain hidden. You need to trim your yard and keep all of your other landscaping trimmed as well. This includes trees, bushes, gardens, and other areas in your yard.

If you have an issue with raccoons, there may be things you can do to keep them out of your yard. If you have used the information above and still continue to have a problem with these pests, you should hire a professional exterminator to help you. Do not attempt to capture a raccoon or handle a raccoon yourself, leave this to a professional raccoon removal service.

About Me
Exploring The Benefits Of Hiring Pest Control Experts

Hi there, my name is Taylor Stone. Ant problems do not just go away on their own. I thought that keeping my home clean would eliminate ants from the premises after they stopped finding food lying about. Boy was I wrong about that. The ants kept streaming inside the home in tiny lines that caused me great distress. The ants went into my pantry and even tried to go into the fridge. I eventually had to call in pest control experts to remove these critters from the vicinity. I was astonished at how quickly and efficiently the pest control experts worked to resolve this trying problem. They got more done in a few weeks than I could accomplish in a year's time. I hope to share the benefits of hiring a pest control expert immediately upon noticing a problem. Thank you.
