Extremely adaptable to a variety of food sources and habitats, raccoons living in Miami can be found in both urban and suburban neighborhoods. These pests are becoming a more frequent sight locally and are easily recognized thanks to their distinctive ringed tail and mask-like markings. Growing up to three feet long and weighing up to 30 pounds, raccoons are well known for knocking over garbage cans, stealing pet food, and occasionally denning inside chimneys and attics.
Problems Raccoons Cause
Aside from their usual raucous nighttime activities, raccoons can transmit several dangerous diseases to both humans and pets. For instance, they are known carriers of the rabies virus as well as baylisascaris procyonis, better known as raccoon roundworm. Raccoons make communal latrines near areas they infest, including attics. Roundworms are shed in their feces and can be accidentally inhaled when these latrines are cleaned incorrectly.
Proper Raccoon Removal
Cornered or frightened raccoons claw and bite, which makes trapping them without qualified assistance a dangerous task. Please leave raccoon removal to a Critter Control specialist who will use a humane trap to capture the animal for you.
In addition to rabies and roundworm, the pests may spread salmonella, lepto spirosis, and numerous parasites such as fleas and ticks. Cornered or frightened raccoons also claw and bite, which makes trapping them without qualified assistance a dangerous task. In order to properly achieve safe and successful raccoon removal, Miami residents should contact the trained wildlife professionals at Critter Control.
Critter Control Reviews
Full service. Excellent job of extracting raccoon, cleaning all animal waste, sanitizing, and spraying anti-parasitic substance. They closed all potential ports of entry, though the work did not match the vinyl, and it looks kind of tacky. They added blown insulation, which added a lot to the cost. They provide a one year warranty against animal intrusion, with an option to extend the warranty at the end of each one- year period. They were willing to work with me one the price. I will probably extend my warranty, and will definitely use them it the future.
I was really impressed by these guys. Got a call within a few hours of making an inquiry. Had a rep out to inspect the situation by the end of the week, and when they laid out the timeline they kept if not exceeded listed times.
Rob, Travis, and Jim were all professional, polite, and courteous and after months of hearing squirrels in my ceiling they are gone and the repair to my flashing looks excellent. Can't recommend these guys enough.
Jeff was incredibly professional and helpful. I'll use them again and would recommend them to anyone.
Critter Control did a great job of evaluating our house for sites of entry after we found bats and a squirrel in our attic. They completed their work promptly and professionally.
We heard some noise from the corner of our house. Concerned that it could be inside we called for an inspection. Jessy arrived as scheduled and conducted a complete inspection of our home. Based on a recording we made he determined we had a tree frog on our roof. I was pleased that we didn’t have any rodent in our house. And his inspection could a few spots I can tighten up around my house. I am very happy with the outcome.
We have a vacation home in Western Mass
and haven’t been there much during the pandemic as we live and work in Atlanta, GA. On our most recent visit we noticed that we had some rodent intrusion as well as some un-welcomed wildlife who decided to make our vacation home their home.
We contacted Critter Control and Mr. Cahoon was quick to set up an appointment as we wouldn’t be in town very long. He came out and assessed our issues. He informed us of our options to both eradicate and control future intrusions. Keeping in mind that wildlife is wildlife! He quickly got to work eradicating the rodents and wildlife from our home and addressing the intrusion issues. We feel much better leaving our vacation home for periods at a time knowing that Mr. Cahoon and Critter Control did their job and did it right! Thanks again!
We bought an old cabin last spring , it was used for years as a summer vacation cabin, therefore maintenance wasn’t a priority. After our project to remodel started, we found evidence of mice droppings
We immediately called Critter Control and they came and gave us a reasonable estimate to remove all remnants and insulation. They sanitized and replaced with new insulation and sealing up points of entry .
Seeing their professional work made us feel confident and secure that the problem was solved ! Everyone we worked with continued to show professional and respectful work. Highly recommend this company! We continue to use critter control monthly to be sure we are mice and bug free!
