Raccoon Trapping & Removal

Serving Louisiana & Mississippi

Raccoon trapping and removal in New Orleans, SE Louisiana & Mississippi by Presto-X, formerly Fischer EnvironmentalRaccoons are very resourceful scavengers. They are perhaps most well known for tipping over trash cans in search of food. While they 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, our team at Presto-X, formerly Fischer Environmental have found that raccoons will nest in your attic, under the eaves of your rooftop, or in the top of your chimney.

The Health Hazards and Dangers of Raccoons

There are several things to be wary of when it comes to dealing with raccoons on your property.

  1. In nature, raccoons tend to 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.
  2. Raccoons are known for being carriers of rabies, but they can also expose everyone in your house to various viruses. 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.
  3. 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.
