Raccoon Infestation

You may be wondering why raccoons being around or in your home is such a big deal. If you live in Nassau, Queens, or Suffolk counties, then you know that raccoons can be a real problem. They rummage through trash cans, steal pet food, and generally make a mess of things. Extermicore is here to help you understand why you don’t want them around your home.

Raccoons are an Issue for Homes

Did you know that raccoons can also pose a serious threat to your home? Here’s why:

Raccoons are carriers of disease.

Some of the diseases that raccoons can spread include rabies, giardia, and salmonella. Raccoons can also carry fleas and ticks, which can transmit other diseases to humans and pets.

Raccoons are strong and agile.

They have sharp claws and teeth that they can use to damage your home. For example, they may rip open shingles to get into your attic or chew through electrical wires. This not only causes damage to your property but can also be dangerous (and even deadly) for you and your family.

Raccoons reproduce quickly.

A female raccoon can give birth to up to 7 offspring at a time. This means that if you have one raccoon on your property, it won’t be long before there are many more. And as we all know, where there’s one pest, there are usually others not far behind!
