Boston pest control

We are Massachusetts's top experts in wildlife and raccoon control. We are not a typical Boston 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 Boston 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

Boston Raccoon Control Tip: Should You Touch A Raccoon Without Protective Clothing?
Unless you are talking about the giant panda or the lion with its large furry mane, there are few creatures in the animal kingdom that look as cute and cuddly as the raccoon, and around the size of a dog or cat, they can appear to be quite friendly too. However, the raccoon is still a wild animal, and while some of them may appear to be inquisitive, and may have learned to approach people to beg for food, can they be trusted to accept a person's touch? It is true that a raccoon's fur can be warm and soft like that of other domesticated animals, but in truth you should always remember that they are wild animals and shouldn't be touched at all where possible.

The Ways In Which Raccoons Can Harm People
Although they are cute and cuddly, raccoons are actually wild animals and scavengers, so they are certainly not good neighbors for people, and can prove to be a danger to people. If you do try to touch a raccoon with your bare hands, or even wearing protective gloves, the raccoon will often see this as a threat and may respond by trying to scratch or bite, and while you may be trying to touch with your hands, the raccoon may target any bare flesh they can see. Raccoons can also transmit diseases in a variety of ways, not just through their bites but by passing on parasites to people, and also when people are trying to clean up their feces, so it is important to be cautious.

Diseases Transmitted By Raccoons
Probably the biggest concern for people who are coming into contact with raccoons is that they are one of the main carriers of rabies in the animal kingdom in the United States, and while cases of transmission are still rare, this is one of the main reasons why you should be cautious around raccoons. There are also diseases that can be transmitted through the urine and feces of raccoons, with Leptospirosis and Salmonella both serious conditions if caught. It isn't just people that need to be concerned by raccoons, as domestic animals such as cats and dogs can also contract diseases from raccoons, such as roundworm and distemper. 

The Importance Of Protecting Yourself When Dealing With Wild Animals
Because of the dual threat of bites and scratches, along with the health implications of coming into contact with raccoons, you should always where possible seek to avoid any direct contact with a raccoon. If you are in the situation where you find a nest of orphaned raccoons near a dead female raccoon, then even here you should be very cautious when touching them, and make sure you wear a mask and protective clothing and gloves. This can help avoid any health and wellbeing problems for you and your family, and is a worthwhile precaution.

Dealing With Raccoon Scratches And Bites
If you do find yourself in the situation where you are scratched or bitten by a raccoon, then the first concern is to avoid any further bites, but also to get a good look at the animal for any signs of rabies, such as frothing at the mouth. Even if the bite or scratch is only shallow, because of the potential health implications you should still treat this seriously and seek attention from your local doctor or emergency room. They will be able to carry out the appropriate tests to see if you have contracted any diseases from the raccoon, and will be able to provide you with the right course of treatment to deal with this.
