What About Future Raccoon Prevention?

Getting an idea of where the raccoons entered and where they are staying is imperative not only in removing them but also in preventing them from returning. Raccoons are strong and smart enough to damage roof soffits, vents, and sidings, but this doesn’t mean that their entryways are always easy to find. Luckily, raccoons tend to leave clues as to how they entered like paw prints or shed fur.

Raccoons may be smart and resourceful, but they won’t stay in areas that have little to no food or shelter. Making it difficult for them to find either of these necessities is a surefire way of getting them to leave and think twice before returning. It’s worth the few minutes it will take to keep food and shelter away from them when you think about the immense damage they can cause to your home and maybe even to you.

Raccoons are omnivores and will eat just about anything they can get their greedy paws onto. Well-fed coons will live longer and have much larger litters which will increase the population in your neighborhood and the likelihood of conflict.
