Louisville Raccoon Trapping
Raccoon trapping is the most effective way to remove problem raccoons. Heavy duty, baited, live cage traps are the most utilized way to capture a problem raccoon. Sounds easy, doesn’t it? Here is what you should know. Most over the counter raccoon traps are not effective. Most over the counter raccoon traps sold at your local home improvement store are not made with strong enough parts, and are not properly tightened right off the shelf. Raccoons are incredibly strong and will use their hands like we do. Raccoons can tear a over the counter raccoon trap apart. If the trap is not properly tightened, the chances of the trap malfunctioning are greatly increased, leading to a educated raccoon that will have a slim chance of going in a trap again. Raccoon trapping should only be attempted by professionals like Animal Pros.
Raccoon Damage and Identification
Raccoon Damage is a common problem in residential areas across the nation. Raccoons are well adapted to living residentially. Most of the common problem calls we receive about raccoons are:

– Raccoons no longer in attic, but need attic disinfected and restored.
Identification of damage caused by raccoons can easily be determined from droppings, tracks, and trails of debris. When raccoons are in the attic, most clients refer to the sound as, its someone walking around in my attic. As soon as you notice raccoon activity, prompt action is needed to eliminate further damage. Call our specialists today for immediate raccoon removal.
Raccoons seen during the day seems to cause a panic, and its often thought the raccoon is rabid. Raccoons in residential areas are susceptible to rabies and other diseases, but will move during the day if food is readily available. Raccoons can be infected with rabies, raccoon roundworm, and raccoon distemper, which can be hazardous to people and pets. Chances of incidental exposure to any of these are greatly increased when raccoons move into a attic, crawlspace, or close proximity of your home. Avoid areas that may harbor raccoon contaminates. Contact Animal Pros specialists for disinfecting, sanitizing, deodorizing, and restoration services.
Raccoons are most known for the “mask” over their eyes, brown thick fur, and ringed tail. They can weigh up to 40 – 50 lbs. Raccoons are found throughout the United States, and are even problems internationally. Raccoons are omnivorous, eating both plant and animal foods. Mating begins December – June, dependent on geographical area, with 3-5 young being born starting in March. Raccoons are nocturnal, but in a residential setting can make a daytime appearance if food is readily available. Family groups of raccoons will usually remain together for the first year, and then the young will seperate.
