What if a raccoon got inside my house, bedroom, kitchen, etc?

Many people do not like to think about this, but there may be a time when a raccoon gains access inside of your home. We are not talking about it getting into your attic or the garage. We are talking about it getting into your kitchen or bedroom.

This is probably one of the most unwelcome guests you can have. Forget your crazy uncle Harold. A raccoon can be quite dangerous. These creatures carry disease and parasites that pose a health risk to you, your family, and your pets. They also have sharp claws and teeth that can harm your family. They have to go.

The problem is that they will fight, especially when cornered. If you attempt to go after the raccoon, it could turn on you, and possibly even bite you. Many raccoons carry rabies, and you cannot afford to allow this animal to bite or scratch you.

Some choose the option of sending their dog in to scare away the beast, but the same risks are involved for your pet. If you dog get bitten by the raccoon, it could contract the disease, and then you may have to put down your dog. No one wants that.

That leaves you with only one sensible option – to hire professional help. Yes, you could set up a trap, and attempt to catch the beast, but do you have time to run to the home store, buy a trap, come home, set it up and wait to see if the raccoon will come? The answer is probably no.

A professional simply makes sense. This includes calling your local animal control. These are trained women and men who know how to handle virtually any animal problem. Your local animal control will likely come and remove the beast for free.

They understand that, while the raccoon may not be a mountain lion or a bear, they still pose a serious health risk, and will come and help you remove the critter. This saves you the risk of trying to get rid of this creature on your own, while removing your problem.

If you cannot get ahold of the animal control, then contact some other kind of professional animal removal organization. You simply cannot afford to take the risk here. The diseases and parasites that raccoons carry are quite dangerous to your family, and risking your own safety and health to remove the raccoon should not be an option. Be safe and seek professional health.
