Wilmington pest control

We are Delaware's top experts in wildlife and raccoon control. We are not a typical Wilmington 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 Wilmington 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

Wilmington Raccoon Control Tip: Will the city or county animal services help me with a raccoon issue?
Do you notice droppings around your property? Or do you hear thumping noises from your attic at night? Or do you see prints that look like the hand of a baby? Chances are you're dealing with a family of raccoons. 

What are you going to do about it? Of course, get rid of it! But do city or county animal services help people with their raccoon issues? In this post, we explore the functions of animal services and the role they play in raccoon removal. 

Understanding Raccoon Removal
Like many other wild animals, raccoons are primarily motivated by food and mating. But unlike many others, they are highly curious. Over the years, they've acclimatized to human settlements and have learned to depend on us for food and shelter. 

A raccoon will reside and rear its young in your attic or chimney because of the warmth and safety it provides. They will open your trash cans and consume the vegetables and fruits in your garden. 

Raccoon removal requires patience and a bit of time. First, a thorough inspection is required to determine the full extent of the problem so a proper removal strategy can be designed and implemented. After removal, then the necessary repairs have to be carried out, as well as full decontamination of the infected space.

Why the City or County Animal Services Won't Help
As we've mentioned, raccoon removal requires a lot of effort. And practically, animal services neither have the luxury of time nor manpower to effectively address your raccoon infestation problem. 

Over the past few decades, raccoon-human interactions have skyrocketed and many county animal services receive up to 50,000 raccoon-related calls yearly. They do not respond to the majority of them. 

To be efficient, animal services tend to focus on dealing with feral cats and reuniting lost pets with their loving owners. But this doesn't mean your county's animal services cannot provide any help when dealing with a raccoon.

When to Call Animal Services for Your Raccoon Problem
There are certain scenarios where calling your county's animal services might yield a positive outcome. Some of which include:

  • Distressed Raccoon in a Public Space
Raccoons are nocturnal creatures. If you see a raccoon in broad daylight that's in distress, injured, or acting erratically, in your neighborhood, do not hesitate to call animal services. In such a scenario, do not get close to the raccoon as it might react aggressively. Animal services will respond because a raccoon in distress poses a serious risk to the public. 

On the other hand, if you sight a raccoon scouting your property to look for a new place to call home, do not bother calling animal services. 

  • Borrowing Traps
While animal services will not help you deal with a raccoon infestation problem on your property, they can lend you a trap. And if you're lucky, a free operative might come to give you a hand. But realize trapping and removal is only a short-term fix. Without sealing the potential entry holes and carrying out the necessary repairs, you're likely to deal with the same problem as new raccoons come. Animal services do not provide repair and decontamination services. 

When to Call a Wildlife Removal Expert
In general, your local animal control services will not help you to remove raccoons from your chimney, basement, attic, or barn. Their primary concern is to only deal with wildlife that poses a serious risk to members of the public. That means they will only address distressed, injured, or abandoned raccoons found in public places. 

If you're dealing with a raccoon infestation problem, you need to involve a private wildlife removal company. Wildlife removal experts are trained to deal with a wide range of problems involving raccoons. Ensure that you choose a wildlife company that treats animals humanely. Also, ensure that your service provider has liability insurance, as well as well-trained technicians and the right removal tools. 

Wrap Up
If you encounter an injured raccoon in the wild or a public place, call your local animal control service. But if you have a raccoon in your attic, wall, basement, or any other place in your private property, call a wildlife removal company.
