How can I tell if I have a raccoon problem?
There are a few sure signs of a raccoon problem on your property. You’ll probably see flat-footed tracks on flower beds or soft areas. The prints look like possums but move in a diagonal direction. If you see those along with trash everywhere, damage to vegetable patches, and see droppings or hear strange sounds at night, you may have raccoons.
Can your deterrents really help get rid of raccoons?
Yes, our deterrents really can help get rid of raccoons! Customers have found our ultrasonic deterrents useful in deterring all manner of creatures, including raccoons.
Small rodents and mammals don’t like high-frequency sound and will actively avoid it.
As this sound is purely a deterrent, the raccoon isn’t harmed and your children and pets are not put at risk with potentially harmful chemicals or traps.
How do I get rid of raccoons humanely?
You can get rid of raccoons humanely by using one of our ultrasonic animal repellents. They use ultrasonic frequencies inaudible to humans and most pets. Raccoons, possums, gophers, voles, mice, rats, and other rodents, and some larger mammals dislike the sound, so will actively avoid it. That’s how to get rid of raccoons humanely!
Why are your deterrents better than pest control?
Pest control uses traps, chemicals, or both to help trap and kill raccoons. While we don’t want them on our property, raccoons play an important part in the food web and in the wild. If there’s a way to deter them humanely without having to harm them, or anyone else, why wouldn’t you take it? Plus, traps and other treatments can pose as much risk to your pets and family as they do to the critters you’re trying to get rid of!
Is there anything else I can do to get rid of raccoons?
There are other things you can do to get rid of raccoons. The most effective is to remove their food source. Use trash cans, wheelie bins, or rodent repellent trash bags. This should protect your garbage from most critters and should stop you from having to clean up after them in the morning.
You can also put the garbage out in the morning for collection rather than the night before and clear your yard of pet food, old fruit or vegetables and keep the area as food-free as possible.
Aside from mess, what risks do raccoons pose to humans?
Aside from a liking for our garbage, raccoons can also carry diseases. They can carry rabies, leptospirosis, canine distemper, raccoon parvoviral enteritis, infectious canine hepatitis, canine distemper, and pseudorabies. They can also carry fleas and ticks.
Not all raccoons will carry all these things but by the time you find out, it’s too late. Much better to keep your property and family safe with an ultrasonic raccoon deterrent!
