We can rid you of Raccoon problems safely and efficiently
Raccoons are nocturnal animals that live across North America. They are clever, swift runners, strong climbers, and capable swimmers. Where raccoons come into close contact with humans, they are considered nuisances because of their opportunistic scavenging habits, which lead them to dig through garbage cans and make messes of home gardens.

These small mammals are known for the distinct, black bandit-mask markings on their faces. Most raccoons weigh anywhere from 10 to 30 pounds and grow up to 3 feet long. Their bushy tails tend to add an additional foot to their total body length. Raccoons have dense, grayish-brown fur peppered with black and white, as well as a series of distinctive black rings on their tails.
Opportunistic and omnivorous, raccoons will eat just about anything they can get their hands on. Common meals include crayfish, frogs, turtles, fish, mice, insects, eggs, fruits, vegetables, nuts, and whatever they can scavenge from carrion and trash piles. They eagerly take advantage of vegetable gardens, unsecured garbage cans, pet food left outdoors, and even bird feeders.
Forests, marshes, prairies, and wooded areas near human habitations are ideal habitats for raccoons. The creatures prefer to live near a water source, such as a stream, lake, wetland area, or slow-moving river, but are highly adaptable and can learn to thrive in a variety of environments. They make dens in hollowed trees, rock crevices, and the abandoned dens of muskrats or similar animals. We most commonly remove raccoons from properties in Georgia, Texas, North Carolina, Louisiana, and South Carolina.
