Raccoons in Ohio and the Damage They Can Cause


Are raccoons bad animals? Certainly not. They can be described as cute and talented, and are well adapted to survive in both the forest and the city. They get into trouble with people because they are so adaptable, clever, and handy. As with all animals, they usually just do what they need to do to survive


Oftentimes this me means ripping a hole in your roof and living in your attic. It's true that once inside, they can really trash the place. They will usually rip up the duct work, tear the insulation off of pipes, rip up wires, trample or pull up the insulation, rip off any paper lining, and sometimes even damage wood joists. The bigger problem may be the biohazardous contamination they cause. They urinate and defecate in the attic, and the droppings can contain raccoon roundworm - transferable to humans, or diseases such as canine distemper, transferable to your pets.


They also may bring in the fleas and other parasites associated with wild animals. It's just the way they are. In many of the jobs that I take on, the customer has already purchased all matter of magic "raccoon-b-gone" or "coon-away" type repellents. These repellents are usually comprised of either naphthalene (moth balls) or predator urine (fox or coyote) or ammonia. I've personally observed dozens of cases in which customers have loaded their attics with these sorts of gimmicks, and it doesn't affect the raccoon's behavior one bit. Please don't try to do it yourself. If you have a raccoon problem; you should to deal with it correctly, with the proper removal, sanitation, and restoration of area, for your families own good and for that of the animal.

A Family of Raccoons Did This !!!!


If you have a wildlife problem, it best be handled by a professional firm, such as ourselves. Then, and only then, can you have peace of mind that that neither yourself or family member will be bitten or injured and if required, a biological cleanup will be done properly if needed.
