Raccoons’ Favorite Nesting Places
Many homeowners don’t know where to begin when it comes to raccoons. While you are aware that these intelligent animals enjoy feeding off trash and making fun of your furry family members, do you know the best places for them to hide? Animal Remover is often called in to remove raccoons from homes; we usually locate them in attics, chimneys, under porches or crawl spaces.
Keep trash in metal bins and on the corner: Once full, take out your trash far away from your home. Your garbage could be the ideal food source for raccoons so make sure it’s locked away and hard to access. Make sure it’s far enough away that scavengers don’t plan to make your place their new bed-and-breakfast.
Trim trees near your home: Raccoons often use trees near your home as bridges if their branches are strong. While you may not think much of a raccoon on your roof, remember that these creatures enjoy climbing and can quickly gain access to attic warmth and comfort if left alone. All branches should be at least five feet from your roof line in order to reduce the chance that a team needs to remove raccoons this winter.
Mesh can be used to secure the area beneath your porch. Galvanized steel mesh is recommended for crawl spaces and under your porch; make sure it’s at least 6 inches high so animals cannot tear it apart. This mesh can also be utilized to cover any openings in your crawl space.
