RACCOON CONTROL WEST PALM BEACH
Raccoons have risen among the ranks in recent times to be one of the most notorious nuisance animals that residents of West Palm Beach have to encounter on a day to day basis. This has brought about the need to have the most appropriate raccoon control West Palm Beach services to help the residents get rid of these nuisance rodents that have threatened to turn many beautiful homes and business into a mess that does not appeal to anyone. In this article, I take you through some of the recommended raccoon control methods.
Raccoon control is achievable if we endeavor to keep them away from accessing the attractors that get them attracted to our homes and business areas. This is possible through a constant effort of identifying these attractors and continually making it hard for the raccoon to find them on our property. Raccoons just like any other rodents out there, are commensal by nature and thus have come to depend on human beings for their survival. The reason for this is because, in human environments, the raccoons are almost guaranteed that they will have access to food and water. Raccoons also feed on leftovers like all the other common rodents that we know such as rats and mice. Garbage cans are also a prime point of focus in your raccoon control West Palm Beach endeavors if you are to achieve the most desirable results. The reason for this is because raccoons are attracted by the smell of food that we may have deposited in our garbage cans. The raccoons will then want to rummage through the garbage in hopes of finding a meal for themselves. This will normally lead to the raccoons knocking the garbage can over and causing a mess in your compound numerous times if you do not take a step to control this. What you need to do is ensure you empty the garbage can as frequently as possible. Covering the top also helps to make it difficult for the raccoons to go through the contents inside.
Raccoons are also attracted to your home when you happen to leave pet food in your yard or porch after your pet is finished eating. You will need to invest time and thus come after each time the pet is done feeding and do a cleanup. This can be tiresome but is absolutely necessary if you are to get satisfactory results. An alternative to this could be disciplining your pet and thus feeding it from inside the house although this may take time before the pet can do it comfortably without causing a mess in the house. Another raccoon control West Palm Beach method that could help in this case is the installation of sprinklers in your garden. The constant harassment of the raccoons by water and other loud sounds in the yard will make it feel uncomfortable about stepping into the yard and going for the pet food that may have been left behind by your pet after it is done feeding. This may be costly I the short term but definitely worth it in the long run. In case you find it hard to install the automatic water sprinklers, a hose pipe that is connected to a water source works just fine. This will, however, mean that you will need to be extra vigilant of any intrusions by the raccoons.
Use of predators is another method that has proven to be very effective in raccoon control West Palm Beach. Raccoons, just like any other animal out there, will not want to be in the same vicinity as its predator. You will thus need to look for incentives to get preying birds such as hawks, eagles, and falcons to want to perch on your lawn or garden. These birds once they spot raccoons, will hunt them down for food. This may come in handy in the long run since the raccoons will be aware that your garden is a hub for their predators and thus they will want to find somewhere else to invade. This method of raccoon control required a lot of patience in order to achieve the most desirable results. The reason for this is because the birds of prey also need to feel secure before they can perch on your garden. If they happen to sense any form of danger, the birds will want to move elsewhere safe for them. If you cannot find a way to attract the birds to your garden, cats and dogs can be as effective, though most of these pets will just harass the raccoons but fail to kill them.
Lastly, the most effective way of controlling raccoons on your property is by unsettling them in their habitat. Raccoons love to make burrows and nest in secluded areas that do not expose them to a lot of human interruptions. These areas will include, underground burrows, hollow tree stumps and the attic. It is your duty as a property owner to go through these said areas and assess the possibility of any raccoons having made a home there. If you happen to notice anything, act promptly to either fill the burrows with rocks or concrete. Make sure, however, to get rid of any young raccoons that may be trapped in these burrows. This is important to ensure that you do not have another pest problem later when the young raccoons die of starvation and thus start decomposing. For tree stumps, remove all the raccoons and their colony from it, then use wire mesh to cover the opening to the tree stump and thus prevent their reentry. Raccoons in attics can be unsettled by installing a light bulb in it and making some noises that will make them feel uncomfortable.
Raccoon control West Palm Beach is possible and only requires a commitment to the process. With proper implementation of the right prevention, control, and removal procedures, you are sure as a property owner to restore the beauty of your home or business in no time at all.
