About Pest Animal Hartford and Our Services:
Raccoons are crafty creatures. They have the capacity to easily find or create entry points that will grant them access to our homes. They can use the crevices and cracks in our building structures to invade our house. They can also enlarge the tiny holes using their sharp claws and teeth. Once they successfully gained an access to our house, they will build their nest on the hard to reach areas of our property such as the void on our walls.
Damages That Raccoons Create to Our Walls
The raccoons will tear up the insulation materials on our walls when creating their den. They can also chew the electrical wires that can possibly result to electrocution or fire. The creature will use a portion of our walls and it will be stained with their droppings and urine that can potentially lead to health issues. The feces of the raccoons are known to carry parasites such as roundworms that carry fatal diseases. The carcass of a dead raccoon can also release an unbearable stench. It is recommended to have some precautionary measures when you are dealing with this kind of infestation.
Raccoons have strong teeth and sharp claw that allow them to gnaw on the wood materials of our house. This can cause damage to our house foundation and weaken the stability of our structure. Their urine can also soften the wood materials that may lead to the deterioration of our house. Furthermore, they can also nibble on the insulation materials that will increase our monthly utility bill. In addition, it can also result to expensive repairs. Our electrical wirings are also vulnerable to this creature. Once the wires have been exposed, it can be a potential fire hazard.
Apart from the considerable threat they the pose to the stability of our house, they can also carry zoonotic diseases. In some cases, it can lead to an alarming situation if not treated immediately. While the possibility that the raccoon is carrying rabies is fairly low, it is still best to stay away from them. Rabies can potentially lead to a life-threatening situation if not properly addressed. Apart from that, they can also carry some infectious diseases such as Leptospirosis, Salmonella and Roundworms. The egg of the roundworms found in the droppings of the raccoon can lead to serious issues. It can have a severe impact on our nervous system and can result to the failure of our vital organs. Leptospirosis can be acquired through an infected water, land, or food. Since the raccoons are dwelling in the gap of our walls, there is a high possibility that they can infect our foods and water. To those who lack the proper equipment and knowledge, they can possibly sustain injuries if they attempted to extract the creature on their own. Due to the associated health risks, it is best to stay away from them and allow the professionals to handle this task. They can safely remove the creature out of your property and can also provide you with tips to prevent future wildlife infestation.
