Lakeland pest control

We are Florida's top experts in wildlife and raccoon control. We are not a typical Lakeland raccoon control or pest control company. We don't treat wild animals like insects, because they are not! You can't just use poison to get rid of them. You also can't just set a few traps on the ground and call it good. Each situation is unique. And remember, if you have raccoons living in your house, it is almost certainly a female with a litter of young inside. These juveniles must be removed by hand, or they will starve to death and die. And after they are gone, the entry holes into the house must be sealed with professional repairs. Unlike most Lakeland pest control, we focus on complete and permanent solutions, by following these steps:

  • Inspect the entire house, ground to roof, and the attic
  • Seal shut all entry areas with professional grade steel
  • If in attic, we remove the baby raccoons by hand
  • Technical and human raccoon trapping appropriate to situation
  • When necessary, we clean raccoon droppings and replace insulation

Lakeland Raccoon Control Tip: Do raccoons attack people?
Raccoons are normally cautious of people and would not attack on normal occasions. Raccoons are cautious and bold, and if caught by a human, a raccoon would freeze and watch for the human's next move. If the raccoons in your area are extremely bold, it means that someone is feeding them, and so they are really accustomed to the presence of humans.

Raccoons can be aggressive animals that are good at defending themselves from predators. They have long, sharp claws, and their jaws are well-formed for fighting and hunting. They are also good hunters and fighters because they have pretty impressive natural instincts and senses. They have sharp eyesight, good coordination, and balance during movement. It is obvious that with these many traits, the raccoon becomes a great hunter and fighter. But the main concern here is whether raccoons attack humans.

Reasons why raccoons attack humans
Raccoons do not randomly attack people unless they feel cornered or threatened and especially if they are sick. They will also attack humans if they come off as a danger to their young ones. One can suffer severe injuries when attacked by a raccoon. The injuries gotten from a raccoon's bite and scratch can also cause diseases like rabies (if the animal is infected with rabies). It is easy to identify a raccoon infected with rabies. The disease affects the brain of the raccoon, and minus the common symptom of foaming escaping from the mouth, it also causes irrational behavior and spontaneous aggression. 

Raccoons suffering from rabies can attack without warning. If you want to trap a raccoon, it is better to hire professionals to do the work in order to avoid getting hurt when the raccoon becomes aggressive. Professionals are well equipped and knowledgeable to handle the situation. 

Raccoons will also attack humans in self-defense. For example, if a raccoon is scared into a small space by a human with no means of escape, they become aggressive, and the human will be attacked if he or she tries to grab the raccoon with bare hands. A homeowner can also get attacked if he or she tries to remove the raccoon out of a trap without giving the animal a chance to escape from the cage on its own. It is even more dangerous if the raccoon is protecting its young ones; the raccoon will get really aggressive while protecting its young ones. It will try to chase the human away by biting and scratching. One thing you should note is that a raccoon will only attack when it is approached by a human. 

What to do when faced with a raccoon
Do not attack a raccoon under any circumstance unless it is attacking you or your pet. You can instead chase the raccoon away.

Never corner a raccoon when you can simply chase it off. Trapping a raccoon will only make it aggressive and fight you while you try approaching it. Be aware of the surroundings, ensuring that there is enough space for the raccoon to run away. If there is a chance to escape, a raccoon will do that. 

Try pushing the raccoon out of your property, and it will eventually leave. Do not try to injure or kill the raccoon. It will only lead to it becoming aggressive and attacking you. Try as much as you can to chase the raccoon away from your property instead of trying to kill or attack it.

Use a long weapon while handling the raccoon. Raccoons are fast and will attack you if you try to get close to them, inflicting damage on your body. Use a long weapon that would allow you to chase the raccoon out of your property without getting close to it. If it is difficult to chase off the raccoon, then call professionals to handle the situation. If you do not have any form of protection against the raccoon, or if the raccoon is extremely aggressive, you are advised to run away. The raccoon might be infected with rabies, and that is the last thing you want to be infected with. Run away and call a professional for help.

If you want to get rid of a raccoon, call professionals to handle it to avoid getting hurt or being infected with rabies. If you got bitten or scratched by a raccoon, seek medical attention immediately.
