How to Prevent and Manage Conflicts with Raccoons

by | Jan 13, 2023 | Tips for Homeowners

Raccoons are a common sight in many areas and while they may be cute and interesting to watch, they can also cause significant damage to your property and pose a threat to your safety and the safety of your family and pets. To prevent and manage conflicts with raccoons, it’s important to understand their behavior and habits, as well as take a proactive approach to deter them from your property.

One of the most effective ways to prevent raccoon conflicts is by eliminating sources of food that may attract them. This includes securing trash cans and compost bins, removing fallen fruit from trees, and keeping pet food indoors. Also, it’s important to keep your property free of standing water or other sources of moisture as raccoons are attracted to moist environments.

Another important step in preventing raccoon conflicts is to create barriers that will keep them away from your property. This includes installing chimney caps or screens, sealing off entry points to your attic, and securing vents and other openings.

If you have raccoons on your property, it’s important not to approach or feed them. Raccoons can carry diseases and can be aggressive when they feel threatened. It’s best to leave them alone and allow them to return to their natural habitat.

If you are experiencing raccoon conflicts on your property, you should contact a wildlife expert for advice. A professional can help you identify problem areas, provide solutions, and safely remove raccoons from your property if necessary.

In conclusion, preventing and managing conflicts with raccoons requires a proactive approach that includes eliminating food sources, creating barriers, and seeking professional help when needed. If you have any concerns regarding raccoons on your property or need professional help, don’t hesitate to contact Coastal Wildlife Services, we will be happy to help you.
