Raccoons, often referred to as “trash pandas,” may seem cute and harmless, but they can pose serious risks to your property and health. You may want to try to evict these pests yourself, but DIY raccoon control fails every time.
The Illusion of DIY Solutions
Many homeowners attempt to tackle raccoon problems themselves, using repellents and traps. However, these DIY measures often prove ineffective. Using household items such as ammonia or mothballs doesn’t work since raccoons are adaptable creatures and often simply ignore the repellants. Ultrasonic devices don’t always work either, for similar reasons.
Signs of Infestation
A big clue that raccoons have invaded your yard is knocked-over trash cans along with tracks, droppings, and strange sounds like mewing, whistling, and growling. If you notice these signs, it’s time to act.
