Raccoon Removal

Humane Raccoon Removal | Wild Animal Expert

Houston residential and commercial properties are commonly infested by raccoons, intelligent critters that are always looking out for loopholes to maximize. The small furry animals are a nuisance to have on or around your property. 

Raccoons are carriers of different deadly diseases, including rabies. Rabies is a disease that can result in fatalities. Humans and pets are at risk of getting rabies from raccoon bites. In the Houston area, raccoons are the number one carriers of rabies. They also carry ticks, which can cause tick paralysis. Ticks also spread Lyme disease. Rocky Mountain spotted fever is another disease that can result in fatalities transmitted by raccoons. They spread the diseases they carry through their bites, droppings, and urine. 

When they infest homes, they could settle in the attic and produce large quantities of droppings and urine with which they spread diseases. 

Apart from the health risk that comes with raccoon infestations, they also cause significant physical destruction. They actively search for food, and this can mean destroying your lawn and garden in the process. Garbage cans are their favorite spots for searching for food. They will turn garbage cans around and make a serious mess when they search for food. 

Raccoons are not pleasant visitors in any way. This is why we provide raccoon removal to get rid of the critters and keep your property safe for the longest period.

What attracts raccoons to your property?

It is the natural instinct of any animal to go to an area with the basic resources it needs for survival. All wildlife that infests human environments do so in search of food and shelter. Raccoons infest your property when they are sure that their food and shelter needs will be met.

The shelter raccoons seek can be your attic. If an attic is accessible, they will definitely infest it. They can access attics through entry points in the roof. The chimney is another entry point for raccoons. They could also make the chimney their home. The critters are excellent climbers, and they apply their climbing skills to find suitable shelter. 

Sources of food for raccoons can be fruits and vegetables from gardens. They make a serious mess when they feast on gardens. Unsecured garbage cans can also be a source of food for the critters. Leftover pet food can also attract raccoons, as it is a source of food for the critters. 

Preventative measures for keeping raccoons out of residential and commercial properties include keeping sources of shelter and food inaccessible. For people that have gardens, this means installing physical and biological barriers. 


If the critters breach the barriers, seek professional help as soon as possible by reaching out to the Wild Animals Expert Team raccoon removal specialists. 

Signs of a raccoon infestation

Reach out to us as soon as you notice any of the signs of a raccoon infestation. Here are the common signs of raccoon infestations:

  • Littered yard

The littered yard is from when the critters search for food. This will most likely be accompanied by an overturned garbage can, especially if it is not properly secured. Your garden may also show signs of the infestation.

  • Tracks

The tracks of the critters also give away the presence of the critters. Raccoon tracks can be likened to that of a small dog. 

  • Droppings

The droppings of the critters are another sign of infestation. They produce droppings in areas they infest, especially closed spaces. You can identify raccoon droppings by their length, 2 to 3 cm long. 

  • Sounds

Raccoons make sounds that can give them away. You would hear thumping sounds in your wall or ceiling.

  • Physical sightings

The physical sightings of the raccoons could be a sign of infestation. This is especially true if it is accompanied by other signs of the infestation. 

Contact us if you suspect a raccoon infestation. A team of experts will be sent to you to confirm the infestation, with a thorough inspection. 

Raccoon removal 

Raccoon removal can be achieved through multiple methods. At Wild Animals Expert Team, we focus only on effective and proven methods. Here are methods we can apply to get the critters out of your property.


We use appropriately-sized effective traps to get rid of the critters. Live trapping is both effective and humane. The infesting critters are not hurt in the process of trapping them.

The trap is baited appropriately and set. After the critters are captured, they are relocated to new areas. 

Because raccoons can try to come back to where they were removed, we relocate them to an area that is a far distance away. 



Suitable repellents discourage the activity of the critters in an area. They cause the critters to find an area uncomfortable and eventually leave. The repellents we apply have been proven to be effective in getting rid of the critters. 

Exclusion measures 

Exclusion measures are designed to make the attractants of the critters inaccessible. This could include the installation of physical barriers by fencing. Exclusion measures also include trimming shrubs and trees so that they do not act as bridges for the critters. 

Removal of general clutter is another important part of excluding raccoons and keeping them off residential and commercial properties. 

Securing garbage cans to make them inaccessible could also be part of the exclusion means for raccoons. 

We have handled a wide range of raccoon infestation in the Houston area. Wild Animals Expert Team only applies proven measures that ensure the complete removal of the critters. 

Our removal services start with a thorough inspection for insights into the scope of the infestation. After we identify the scope of the problem, we proceed by creating a strategy that will guarantee the total removal of the critters.      

We also offer post-removal services. These services are aimed at restoring your property to the pre-infestation state. The Wild Animals Expert Team professionals will clean, repair, and replace structures as required. 

The post-removal services are an essential part of what we offer. Without post-removal services, your home could be just as much a hazard as it was before the removal. If the critters accessed your attic, they would have definitely left droppings and urine behind, which can spread diseases. 

Raccoon removal in the Houston area is a specialty of the Wild Animals Expert Team. We provide high-quality services aimed at keeping the critters out for good. Raccoons are nuisance critters that can cause a lot of damage and put human and pet health at risk.
