Charlottesville pest control

We are Virginia's top experts in wildlife and raccoon control. We are not a typical Charlottesville raccoon control or pest control company. We don't treat wild animals like insects, because they are not! You can't just use poison to get rid of them. You also can't just set a few traps on the ground and call it good. Each situation is unique. And remember, if you have raccoons living in your house, it is almost certainly a female with a litter of young inside. These juveniles must be removed by hand, or they will starve to death and die. And after they are gone, the entry holes into the house must be sealed with professional repairs. Unlike most Charlottesville pest control, we focus on complete and permanent solutions, by following these steps:

  • Inspect the entire house, ground to roof, and the attic
  • Seal shut all entry areas with professional grade steel
  • If in attic, we remove the baby raccoons by hand
  • Technical and human raccoon trapping appropriate to situation
  • When necessary, we clean raccoon droppings and replace insulation

Charlottesville Raccoon Control Tip: Will Poison Deal With A Raccoon Infestation?
Finding out that you have a raccoon infestation in your property can prove to be a distressing discovery for almost any homeowner, but the signs of damage and especially signs of raccoons foraging around your property shouldn't be ignored. There are many different ways in which you can try to deal with the problem, and one method that has been used is to lay bait for the raccoons which will also have some poison added in to the bait. However, while these poisons can work to kill the raccoon or raccoons that are causing the problem, there are a number of issues with poison use that can ultimately prove to be an even greater risk.

How Do Raccoon Poisons Work?
There are several different types of poison available that can be used to deal with a raccoon infestation, and ultimately they can work in different ways in order to kill the animal that ingests the poison. Some of the most common types of animal poison will work by thinning the blood of the raccoon to the point where its blood seeps from the natural system, causing internal bleeding until the animal dies. Other poison can also cause crystals to form in the animal's blood stream, which will also kill the raccoon. The main similarities is that poisons do not provide a quick death, and they are also generally painful for the animal.

The Danger Of Collateral Damage When Using Poison
One of the key difficulties when you are using poison to deal with any animal infestation is that it can be difficult for you to control which animal will actually ingest the poison. Other animals can in fact often get to the poisoned bait before the raccoon, especially if you live in urban or suburban areas where people will keep pets such as cats and dogs, while in some cases if you are using bait such as fruit, it is even possible that local children could find this food first. Also, because you cannot control where the raccoon will die, then it is almost impossible to ensure that no-one else will come into contact with the carcass before you discover it to be disposed of.

The Risk To Your Local Ecosystem
Another threat that using poison can have is to the other animals in your local ecosystem, as they can also be impacted when an animal is killed using poison. In some cases it will take several days for you to discover the raccoon's carcass if you have successfully used poison to kill the animal, and in this time the scent of the decaying raccoon will often have attracted other pest animals to the area. Some of these animals may also have fed on the dead raccoon's carcass, moving more of the poison into the food chain, which can then be passed on to other animals as well.

Alternative Methods Of Dealing With A Raccoon Problem
Poison is generally considered to be quite a reckless way of dealing with a pest animal problem, but when it comes to raccoons there are plenty of alternative methods that can be used to solve the problem. The most common way of dealing with a pest raccoon is by using a cage trap to catch the animal, which can then either be relocated or euthanized depending on the regulations in your local area. When you are dealing with a raccoon, it is important to be careful and to take the appropriate precautions, but if you do have any concerns it can also be worthwhile to hire a professional animal removal expert to help you deal with the issue.
