Raccoons live in streets of New York City at least that is what you think.Yet, raccoons are very clever animals which can be found almost anywhere. They can in fact be found living near or in your home. They go where there is an abundance of food and shelter. Raccoons can become a nuisance if people unknowingly supply food or shelter for them. Then the next thing you know you have a raccoon living in your chimney or attic. Hopefully, it just the one raccoon and not a momma raccoon with her babies. Raccoons can in fact make a nest in your home since it’s safer than making one outside. What to do? Well, the best thing to do is to leave it to the professionals.
If you feel you have a raccoon or a family of raccoons in your residency its best to leave it to us, Animal Control NYC. Raccoons can carry rabies and the last thing you would want is to get bit or scratched by one because you wanted to remove them yourself. Raccoons are not timid critters and as any mother would, they will defend their babies and territory against anyone or anything trying to evict them.
If you want to try some safe home remedies first; the best thing to do is to try 2 of the only methods known to get rid of raccoons without proper training. For example: playing loud music where you believe they might be. They like the quiet and your attic or chimney can provide this for them. So, playing loud music can help in making raccoons leave. Also, putting on very bright lights in these areas can also cause them to look for a darker place to live. Just remember if they do leave they can still come back so you would still need a team of professionals to keep them out for good by making it impossible for them to come back. That is why it is best to call the professional at Animal Control NYC from the start, plus your neighbors won’t complain about the loud music.
