Raccoons are very resourceful scavengers. They are perhaps most well known for tipping over trashcans, in search of food. These critters, which are prevalent throughout Louisiana & Mississippi, will also intrude into your home, if your house seems like a good place to make a warm nest.

We are located in Mandeville, Louisiana, and serve the entire metro New Orleans area including St. Tammany, Orleans, Jefferson & Tangipahoa Parishes. We also serve the Mississippi Gulf Coast including Hancock & Harrison County MS.
The Importance of Promptly Addressing Raccoon Problems
Raccoons may seem like harmless creatures, but they can cause a multitude of problems for you, especially if they are able to enter your building.
It may surprise you how easily a raccoon can break into your house or commercial property and settle in. They do this by creating or taking advantage of holes in your siding or any other weak points in the structure of your walls or roof. While providing raccoon removal services in Louisiana & Mississippi, we have found that raccoons will nest in your attic, under the eaves of your rooftop, or in the top of your chimney.
Health Hazards Caused By Raccoons
In nature, raccoons tend avoid having any contact with humans and pose little threat. However, a raccoon that is trapped in your house can quickly become aggressive, especially if it feels cornered or if it is protecting its offspring.
Whether or not you come into direct contact with a raccoon, a raccoon living in your house can expose you to various diseases. Raccoons are known for being carriers of rabies, but they can also expose everyone in your house to various viruses and Raccoon Roundworm. The parasites living on raccoons, and raccoon feces, can affect your health and cause you to contract a virus, even if you never see the raccoon itself.
Structural Damage to Your Home
Obviously, the raccoon is often going to have to cause damage to your house in order to get into the attic or into your walls. With their sharp claws and teeth, they have little trouble damaging your siding, insulation, wiring and many other structures. If the raccoon decides to chew on your electrical wiring, you could find yourself without power or at a high risk of house fire.
Professional Raccoon Trapping & Removal
If you realize that a raccoon may have invaded your home, we cannot emphasize enough that you should not attempt to trap or remove the animal yourself. As mentioned, this can cause the raccoon to become very panicked and aggressive, putting everyone in the building at risk.
