Keeping Raccoons Away

Though raccoons serve very important functions in our ecosystem, it is important to keep them away from our residential and commercial dwellings as much as possible. This is because raccoons carry diseases, damage property, and sometimes prey on household pets. To learn about what you can do to keep raccoons away, watch this video clip.

Raccoons are generally interested in making a house and finding food. First, get rid of the food—don’t leave garbage in a can outdoors overnight, unless it is in a metal container. Then, raccoon-proof areas where raccoons might want to nest. Talk with a pest control expert about how to do this.
