Kalamazoo pest control

We are Michigan's top experts in wildlife and raccoon control. We are not a typical Kalamazoo 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 Kalamazoo 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

Kalamazoo Raccoon Control Tip: Can raccoons jump onto houses or over fences?
Raccoons have a reputation of being impish. Despite your location (whether you live in woodland areas or close to a park or stream), you have a high chance of having a raccoon infestation. If you have a steady supply of food in your house with multiple hiding spots, these sneaky critters will create a nesting spot in the hidden corners of your home, particularly your attic. 

So how do these creatures get into your home without you noticing? Did they jump onto your house, or over the fence?

Although raccoons are agile, raccoons are not great jumpers. They don't jump onto roofs or over fences, but they can climb on almost any part of a house, and fences too. Raccoons find it easier to jump vertically and jump from a high place. A raccoon can scale any vertical surface and jump from a tree to its target, provided the tree branch and the target are close to each other. Raccoons have to scale three-quarters of the way, at least before they can jump vertically.

Raccoons mostly jump over fences when they find something they want desperately. Some raccoons are also able to make long jumps when faced with a predator. A raccoon is able to climb very well because of its strong grip and its limbs. The raccoon's hind limbs are longer than its forelimbs, giving it a hunched appearance while running or climbing and making the raccoon able to jump without missing any landings. The raccoon has five toes on its paws. The front paws of the raccoon have sharp claws and are nimble (fast for grasping things). The hand of a raccoon is similar to that of a monkey. These claws help the raccoon climb walls, fences, and many other surfaces.

How to prevent a raccoon infestation
To prevent a raccoon infestation, you can:

  • Trim tree branches that extend towards the roof of your house. If you have trees growing in your home, and their branches extend over the roof of your house, you should cut them off because these branches will make it easier for raccoons to get into your house. Leaving those branches will increase the chance of suffering from a raccoon infestation. Raccoons do not jump fences, but these branches will give easy access to your home if the raccoons find something interesting in it.
  • Clean up your backyard to prevent raccoons from gaining interest in your home. If your backyard is messy, you have a higher chance of raccoons being interested in your home, leading to a raccoon infestation. To avoid this, clear and clean your backyard, cutting the grasses and clearing the drainage system. Clear any place in the backyard that would serve as a potential hiding spot for the raccoons. 
  • Do not leave food items around because these leftover food items attract pests, including raccoons. The smell of the food invites them to your house. Keep leftover pet food stored, and make sure the covers of your waste bins fit tightly. Another thing you should not do is feed the animals. They may look cute and adorable, but they are actually very destructive. Feeding them will make them come back to you every time, and soon, your house will be infested with raccoons. Besides, the more you feed the raccoons, the less fearful they are of humans, which is not a good thing. They might attack you if you don't have the food you always give them. As mentioned before, feeding raccoons cause an infestation, and not just a raccoon infestation but also an infestation of animals like rats, mice, squirrels, bats, skunks, snakes, and many others.
  • Set traps for the raccoons. If you are suffering from a raccoon infestation, you can remove the raccoons in the most humane way possible. Check the law in the country you live in to know what form of trapping is legal and to know if the species is protected.
  • Get professionals to do the work. Removing raccoons is actually a very unsafe task. Raccoons are carriers of diseases, including rabies. Contact with them can cause serious illness. So it's safer that professionals do the work, saving you the stress of trapping these animals and being in danger of getting infected.
