What You Need To Do If Raccoons Have Over-Run Your Yard

Raccoons are a foraging pest that will find food in your shed, home, or garage, or they will rummage through your trash for food in order to survive. These pests will eat just about anything and will tear up these areas in order to find what they are looking for. They aren't clean animals in any way and can cause a lot of damage in their wake. These pests are also going to look for a place that is safe for nesting for themselves and their families. They will make their nest in compost piles, piles of landscape trash, or even in your attic, garage, or shed. If you have these pests in or around your home and they have begun to over-run these areas, you need to take action. Read on for some tips. 

Clean Up Your Yard

Do a scan of your yard and look for any areas that may be a good nesting place for these pests. If you have landscape piles, piles of rubbish, or other piles in your yard that may be used for nesting, they need to be removed. Brush piles should be removed and hauled away, as raccoons or other pests may be using these piles for nesting, including opossums, mice, rats, and a number of insects as well. Clean up your yard, even areas a little further away from your home, garage, or shed. Remove all of these piles and clean up.

Remove Food Sources

Remove all food sources that these pests may be using to survive. Food they may be using such as your trash should be kept in a receptacle that has a tight lid and that is unable to be easily lifted by these or other pests. Remove other food sources such as pet food, bird seed, fertilizers, or grass seeds. Remove all food sources these pests may be using to feed off of, including cleaning up around the inside of your home or garage as well. Place anything that can be used as food into air-tight containers in your garage or shed to keep these or other pests out.

If you have an issue with raccoons, you need to take quick action before they over-run your yard or home. Hire a professional animal removal company to help you remove these pests and their young from your home or yard. Discuss other things you may be able to do to prevent these or other pests from invading your yard.
