VarCounty County is home to all types of wildlife, including raccoons. As a Plainedge, NY homeowner, there’s no doubt you’ve come into contact with these critters at some point. Wooded areas are their natural habitat, but is that so much of Nassau County is wooded, they’ve become a real problem for Plainedge residents.

Raccoons are nocturnal creatures, so they’re naturally more active at night; however, they are also known to prowl around during daylight hours. Like all species of animals, raccoons have strong survival instincts and seek food and shelter Where’s the perfect place for these critters to find what they need to survive? – It may just be your home! While their intention isn’t to harm, they can damage your property and spread disease; plus, they can just be a real nuisance. 

Signs You Need Raccoon Removal Services

Sometimes, the signs of a raccoon problem are abundantly clear; others, they aren’t as obvious. Being that infestations of these pests have become such a problem in Nassau County, there’s a good chance that some unwanted visitors will move into your home at some point.

Be aware. If you notice any of the following signs, you’re definitely going to want to contact a professional raccoon exterminator.

  • Scattered garbage. Are your garbage cans knocked over every morning? If so, it’s a surefire sign that you have a raccoon problem. For raccoons, discarded food waste is a feast and trash cans that are filled scraps are a five-star restaurant for these critters. To gain access to the food, they climb on top of waste receptacles, knock them down, chew holes in the sides; they’ll do whatever they can to gain access to the tasty treats that are tucked inside.

If you find that your trash cans are knocked down and your yard is littered with garbage, it’s almost certain that raccoons are the culprits.

  • Tracks. Raccoons create footprints that look similar to tiny hands. Check around your property; especially around your garbage cans. If you see track marks that look like they may have been made by raccoons, these unwanted visitors are probably lurking on your property.
  • Strange sounds. Screams, chittering, snarls, and snorts; raccoons make a wide-range of distinctive sounds. If you hear strange noises – especially at night – and you can’t relate them to another animal, it may be a sign of a raccoon problem.
  • Scratch marks. Check around the bases of trees, along your porch, deck, stairs, sheds, or other structures. If there are any visible signs of scratch marks, raccoons could be to blame. If you notice any long, coarse hairs that are black or gray in color and see any oily residue near the marks, you may have unwanted residents living on your property.

Dangers of Raccoons

Sure, they’re part of wildlife and like every other animal, they’re an important part of the ecosystem, but raccoons can cause problems for humans and other animals; especially if they’ve become a permanent fixture on your property. Some of the dangers these animals present include:

  • Disease. Raccoons can carry a variety of parasites, viruses, and bacteria that can be harmful to humans, such as salmonella, giardiasis, roundworm, leptospirosis, and even rabies. Though rare, there is a risk that you could contract diseases caused by the parasites, viruses, and bacteria these pests carry. 
  • Pet problems. If you have pets, there’s a chance that raccoons could be a danger to your four-legged friends, too. There have been many reports of raccoon-related dog and cat injuries throughout Nassau County. If they feel threatened, they could attack your pet, cause serious injuries, and/or transmit diseases.
  • Destruction. Raccoons can also cause serious damage to your property. They are known to nest in basements, attics, garages, and other dark, remote locations. Scratching, digging, urine, and feces can result in extensive, costly damage to your property.
