Raccoon Removal: Safe & Humane

Wildlife X Team offers professional raccoon removal for homes and businesses in Austin, TX. 

We are an experienced team that can handle raccoon removal. There are a number of reasons to call a professional rather than trying to physically remove it on your own. 

Here are a few reasons to trust Wildlife X Team: 

  • Thanks to our extensive training, our practices are the safest methods for us and the homeowner. We never stop training, so we always know the best way to remove an animal from your home. 
  • We support humane treatment of the animal. A raccoon that is foraging for food or looking for a warm place to sleep doesn’t necessarily need to be put down unless it is rabid. We can determine if the animal is a good candidate for relocation. 
  • Our knowledge of release protocols in your area so the raccoon has the best chance of survival. The worst thing you can do is take an animal to an unfamiliar forest and release it. 
  • We preserve kit litters when at all possible. Knowing raccoon behaviors as well as we do, it’s possible for Austin Wildlife Removal to get the mother out and situate her babies so that she will return for them when she deems it safe. 
  • Our team can offer tips for keeping raccoons off your property in the future. We can inspect your property to see what might be attracting raccoons, and perform necessary repairs to keep them out of your home. 

Raccoons are mostly nocturnal, so if you see one during the day, it’s going to be scared and possibly aggressive. Once a raccoon finds your home to be a source of food or safety, it isn’t going to leave on its own. 

There are some things you can do to deter raccoons, but if those things don’t work, you’ll need a specialist to safely remove it. Don’t hesitate to call Wildlife X Team’s specialists to get rid of it for good!

Section Title Goes Here.

There are some pretty typical raccoon behaviors that you can expect to see if there’s one around your home, but there are some less common signs you might see as well: 

  • Nesting in insulation or another part of your home, like the attic or garage
  • Seeking food. Raccoons are notorious for digging through trash
  • Getting into garden, digging up the ground and eating crops 
  • It’s rare, but raccoons have been known to get into chicken coops 

These behaviors can put your family and pets in harm’s way. Raccoon droppings and urine will damage the area where they nest, and they carry diseases. Raccoons are known carriers of rabies, putting your pets in danger. And finally, a cornered raccoon will attack using its sharp teeth and claws to defend itself (although raccoons are not known to attack unprovoked).

RACCOON SAFETY TIPS

Momma Raccoons

Don’t approach a female raccoon with kits. She’s unpredictable, and you may cause her to abandon her babies. Please wait for Wildlife X Team arrive to professionally handle the situation and ensure the mother and babies are safe.

Raccoon Trapping

Don’t trap a raccoon on your own. Raccoons are hunted in many locations, but each state has specific laws about trapping and handling live raccoons. And, of course, you have to get it out of the trap and released safely.

Raccoon Relocation

Don’t relocate raccoons you catch yourself. Relocated raccoons have a higher risk of rabies, and studies show that relocated raccoons don’t have a high survival rate in unfamiliar environment. Please wait for us to arrive.

DON'T TRY DIY!

Raccoons are notoriously cute and known for being mischievous little creatures. They’re frequently featured as such in movies and on television … and it’s all fun and games until it’s your trash can being flipped over every single night.  When you see the tell-tale signs that a raccoon is taking over your yard – or worse, inside your home – you’re probably going to need some help removing it for good.
