What Prices Do We Charge?
Learn About Costs and Our Wildlife Control Prices
We are Nevada's top experts in wildlife and raccoon control. We are not a typical Reno 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 Reno 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
Reno Raccoon Control Tip: Should You Ever Handle a Raccoon with Your Bare Hands?
Before we even dig deeper into this question, we need to make one thing perfectly clear. You should never handle a raccoon with bare hands. Under no circumstances. The answer to this question is an unequivocal no!
Your Health Is at Risk
We may seem like we are being overdramatic here, but that is not the case at all. Raccoons are the carriers of a number of different diseases, and you are putting yourself at risk any time you come in contact with an animal like this.
Let's start with the most obvious. Raccoons are wild animals. They may look cute and cuddly. They may act sweet and gentle in movies and cartoons. However, they are wild animals who seek to protect themselves above all things.
To them, you are a potential predator. They don't know why you are picking them up. Maybe your reason is to help them or to feed them. They don't now. So, their initial reaction is to bite, scratch, and claw. This could cause you serious injury. Raccoons have sharp teeth and sharp claws. They could seriously do some damage to you or your child.
The Carriers of Diseases
Besides worrying about injury caused by a raccoon, you also have to worry about the diseases these animals carry. Raccoons are known to be the carriers of rabies, which is extremely fatal to human beings if not treated right away. We commonly associate this disease with dogs, but raccoons are even more likely to have rabies. One bite or scratch from a raccoon, and you may be causing yourself your life.
This is not the only disease they carry, however. Raccoons carry viruses, parasites, and bacteria. Any which of these could do you serious harm. Sometimes, bacteria and parasites could actually be in their fur or skin. That means simply having your hands on the animal could allow a parasite to burrow its way into your skin, and get into your bloodstream, and then set up house in your heart, kidneys, or other vital organ. Not an appetizing idea at all.
Be Safe at All Times
If you find yourself in a situation where you have to handle a raccoon, then you need to make sure you are protecting yourselves. You should have thick gloves on, to ensure that there is no possibility of getting any of these diseases on yourself. Also, wear a surgical mask and goggles to protect your eyes and respiratory system. Also wear a long-sleeved shirt, long pants, and boots. Leave no portion of your skin exposed.
If it is a dead raccoon that you are simply looking to dispose of, then consider picking it up with a shovel or other similar object. The less contact you have with the animal the better off you are. The further away from the animal you are, the better off you are. Look to protect yourself at all costs. The life you're saving could be your own.
