How Do Raccoons Get Into Houses?

Raccoons are very quick to find a place that can protect them from the elements like rain and cold. They will break into attics, basements, even other parts of the home like in the walls. But they also may live outside, on your roof or, the worst situation, under your deck. If you want to get rid of the raccoons in your home, contact Raccoon Removal Toronto  to solve your raccoon problem!

Now if you have a raccoon under your deck you will need to call a professional to remove it or you can try doing it yourself with storebought one-way doors or even risk it all and try using a trap. Though traps are notoriously hard to set up, most are specifically designed to be handled by professionals and are beyond most normal people. They are also dangerous. Raccoons are protected wildlife and killing them is very much illegal. The trap can do this by starving them to death so be absolutely sure to check on the trap constantly. You may also find the raccoon too smart for the trap and able to get the food without being trapped. This is actually very common. 

If you call a professional like Raccoon Control you will have a well trained and experienced technician who can remove your raccoon with a one-way door that allows the animal to leave but stops it from returning. They will also cover the outside of the deck in steel mesh to prevent the raccoon from getting back in under the deck in the future. 

If you want to try doing the exclusion yourself you will need a lot of steel mesh and bolts to attach them to your deck. Make sure to dig a trench down at least one foot to lay the mesh underground to prevent anything from burrowing under your deck. 

But why do it on your own, call us and we can do it all for you, even disinfect the deck and under it.
