Albuquerque pest control

We are New Mexico's top experts in wildlife and raccoon control. We are not a typical Albuquerque raccoon control or pest control company. We don't treat wild animals like insects, because they are not! You can't just use poison to get rid of them. You also can't just set a few traps on the ground and call it good. Each situation is unique. And remember, if you have raccoons living in your house, it is almost certainly a female with a litter of young inside. These juveniles must be removed by hand, or they will starve to death and die. And after they are gone, the entry holes into the house must be sealed with professional repairs. Unlike most Albuquerque pest control, we focus on complete and permanent solutions, by following these steps:

  • Inspect the entire house, ground to roof, and the attic
  • Seal shut all entry areas with professional grade steel
  • If in attic, we remove the baby raccoons by hand
  • Technical and human raccoon trapping appropriate to situation
  • When necessary, we clean raccoon droppings and replace insulation

Albuquerque Raccoon Control Tip: The Best Way To Deal With Raccoons In The Attic
There are few animals that can find their way into the domestic property that can be as frustrating as raccoons, and because their natural fear response is to climb to get away from predators, they are most commonly found in a loft space or attic. They can cause a significant amount of damage once they find their way in to the attic, including soiling and tearing insulation, as well as scratching at the wooden surfaces and wires in the attic too. For this reason, if you do start to hear signs of activity up in the attic, then it is important to try and address this as soon as possible.

Choosing A Cage Trap To Catch A Raccoon
Trapping and removal is the most common way of dealing with a raccoon infestation, and when it comes to the effectiveness of this approach it is important to choose the appropriate trap to catch the raccoon. The most important thing is to choose a trap that is of the right size, and many of the traps you will find in your local hardware store are designated as able to be used for raccoons, but those advertised for feral cats are also of an appropriate size. The reason you can't use larger traps for raccoons is that they will usually have a slightly heavier trigger for the trap, meaning the raccoon may be too light to cause the trap to close.

What Is The Best Bait To Attract Raccoons?
Raccoons have an extremely varied diet, and this can also see regional variations depending on the foods that are readily available in those areas, so not one bait will work for every raccoon. Probably the most popular bait for a raccoon trap is marshmallows, as they are easy to place, and their sweetness will naturally attract the raccoons towards the trap. However, they can also be attracted by several other foods, including wet cat food or dog food, canned fish, bacon and almost any other food that has a strong scent. Ultimately, bait is only a part of the package, so using a good bait without the right trap or location will be ineffective.

The Best Location For A Raccoon Trap
When it comes to finding an appropriate location for the trap, it is important to place the trap in an area the raccoon is likely to come across it, so you will need to place the trap in an area where they are active. While you can place the trap in the attic itself, it will usually need to be fairly close to the nest, in many cases, if you find the point where the raccoons are coming down into your yard or garden, this can be a good area to try. You may also be able to identify areas where they are moving regularly, such as the gap in the hedge they use when going out to forage, so near here can also be a good spot to place the trap.

Alternative Methods Of Dealing With A Raccoon Problem
While trapping and removal is the most common way of dealing with a raccoon problem, there are also other approaches that you can also use, to make the area less attractive to the raccoons. Removing their potential food sources can be one way of getting rid of the animals, so making sure garbage and pet food is stored securely, and choosing plants in the yard or garden that don't grow berries, fruits or vegetables. You will also find that there are a range of different repellents available, but it is worth noting these can be hit and miss in terms of their success rate in solving the problem.
