About Pest Animal Birmingham and Our Services:
Raccoons are found in the urban and rural areas and they are sources of numerous problems. Apart from the fact that they are potential carrier of roundworms, fleas and other parasites, there is also a small probability that they carry rabies. They will raid our trashcan and destroy our vegetable garden. Their destructive behavior made them one of the most troublesome creatures in North America. Fortunately, there are ways on how you can minimize the possible damage of this nuisance creature.
Getting Rid of the Raccoons
One you encounter a raccoon that is attempting to open a completely sealed trash can, you will understand how persistent this animal is. Due to the severe destruction that this animal can cause, a lot of people are looking to find a solution in order to discourage this creature from invading their property. The methods mention below may or may not work depending on your circumstances. Repellents may have a small amount of efficacy. Trapping and relocating the animal is still the most effective method.
For those who are looking for an inexpensive way to prevent the damage that the raccoon can cause, homemade repellents would be the perfect choice. There are two types of deterrents; taste and odor repellents. The taste deterrents contain strong and oppressive flavor that will discourage the interest of the raccoon. Odor repellents, on the other hand, have the foul and unbearable stench such as ammonia.
• Taste Repellent- For the taste repellent, cayenne pepper and pepper sauce are normally the base ingredients. It will then be mixed with the dishwashing soap and water. The cost of this homemade repellent is around $9-$20.
• Odor Repellent- The sense of smell of raccoon is very sensitive which is why it is so ordinary for people to use strong odors to keep them at bay. Some of the commonly used odor repellents are mothballs and ammonia. Unfortunately, these may also impose a danger on your mucus membrane which is why it is not recommended by the experts.
With the advent of technology, it is relatively easy for us today to find a device that can help us get rid of this wildlife creature. Perhaps one of the most familiar devices would be the electronic sprinkler. Nonetheless, this can be an expensive solution. Different communities across the US are no longer allowing the use of sprinklers all day since it is not eco-friendly. Not to mention that running sprinkler everyday can instantly increase your monthly utility bill.
Fencing would perhaps be the most effective deterrent. You may either use a mesh wire, PVC, wooden, or electric fencing. The choice will ultimately be based on your personal needs and budget. Mesh fencing is a cost-effective solution. The price may range from $10-$30 depending on the area that you need to protect. Electric fencing on the other hand can increase your expenses to up to $500.
In case you are experiencing a raccoon infestation and you are looking for ways to discourage their activity, a wildlife removal company can provide their assistance to deal with your concern. They also have the capacity to prevent future infestation and eliminate the possible damages.
