Raccoons

Raccoon Trapping and Removal in Cape Coral, FL

Very Experienced at Trapping Biggest Nuisance Animal in Florida

Raccoons are probably the biggest nuisance animals in Florida. Much of AAA Wildlife Trapping & Removal Services’ work is expertly trapping and removing these pesky critters in Cape Coral and the surrounding area. Raccoons, which have a distinctive black mask and make for funny subjects of commercials, will knock over and gobble up food in your garbage cans, tear holes in roofs, cause significant damage in your attic, and steal pet food. They carry a number of parasites and diseases that can affect your family and pets, including rabies. Call us at (239) 440-7783 if you have a raccoon problem.

Removing the Female Raccoon and Her Litter from the Attic or Wall

If a raccoon has taken up residence in your home, it is a safe bet that it is female, pregnant and looking for a good place to give birth to her babies, or she already has given birth to four or five little ones. The litter is usually born in the spring. When AAA Wildlife Trapping & Removal Services owner Alfredo Fermin finds a raccoon problem, he will look for the babies because if they are not removed, they will die and the smell of death might drive you out of the home. He will open holes in walls, tear through insulation, and inspect every tight corner and space to find them.

Using Humane Trapping and Relocation

AAA Wildlife Trapping & Removal Services traps raccoons with live bait in large, metal cages. Sometimes we use the babies as a means to trap the mother. We never use poison to trap animals, and we are as safe and humane as possible. We check the cages every day because we do not want the raccoon to sit in a cage for more than a day. After the raccoons are removed, we relocate them to an area far from your home in Lee County, Charlotte County or Collier County.

Best to Let the Professionals Make the Repair

Raccoons have strong, sharp claws and hands, which are perfect for ripping off wood, siding and other materials to enter an attic. Some homeowners will try to get rid of the raccoons themselves by making the repairs and closing up the hole, which is usually pretty big, where the nuisances got in. But if the raccoon has babies still in the house, it will come back and tear another hole to gain entry. That is why you need to contact AAA Wildlife Trapping & Removal Services. We will make sure all of the raccoons are out, repair the damage to the home properly, and raccoon-proof the area.
