Raccoon Control and Removal

The Dangers of Raccoons in the Home

It is never a good sign when you begin to see signs of raccoons in or around your home. They will look for any opportunity to get inside the house and cause mischief. Once inside the home, a raccoon can cause a myriad of problems that will damage and destroy the area where they nest. Raccoons will chew up electrical wiring, gnaw on wood, and destroy any items you have in storage that they can get ahold of. Not only will they destroy your home, but they also carry potentially harmful diseases that can be passed on to humans living in the household. Rabies and roundworm are the two most common diseases that raccoons can carry. Roundworms are intestinal parasites that can make humans very sick. Symptoms of roundworms are nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, stomach cramps, and worms in the stool. This parasite can be transmitted to humans through eggs in raccoon feces in the home. Once a raccoon has entered the home and left its waste, the area must be properly decontaminated to eliminate the risk of transmission through feces. Don’t risk destruction or disease. If you suspect a raccoon has taken up residence somewhere inside the home, contact Masters Services technicians for raccoon control and removal in Houston.

Signs of Raccoons Inside Your Home

Raccoons are extremely clever and will find any possible way to enter the home. Because of this, it is recommended that you contact trusted raccoon control and removal in Houston as soon as you see signs of raccoon activity. Often times, raccoons will build a nest in the chimney of your home or find a way into your attic space. If the damper of the chimney is open and raccoons find a way in, they can cause costly damage. Additionally, some raccoons could die in the chimney and leave behind an unpleasant smell. Raccoons will scratch and gnaw their way into the tiniest of spaces to create an entry into the attic, again leaving you with costly repairs. If you see signs of animal gnawing or scratching or hear scratching sounds coming from the walls, it’s probably time to consult the Houston raccoon control and removal pros at Masters Services. The longer you wait, the most damage you will incur and the more costly the repairs will be.
