  • We Can Solve It!
Many of Arizona's wild animals have learned to adapt and even thrive in our homes. For example some wildlife have found that attics make great places to live. Other animals find refuge under homes or porches. Invariably, these animals cause damage. Rodents, like squirrels and rats, love to chew on electrical wires once in an attic, and this causes a serious fire hazard. Raccoons can cause serious contamination in an attic with their droppings and parasites. Same goes for bat or bird colonies. We specialize in solving Arizona's wildlife problems, from snake removal to large jobs like commercial bat control, we do it all.

We do not handle dog or cat problems. If you need assistance with a domestic animal, such as a dog or a cat, you need to call your local Maricopa county animal services for assistance. They can help you out with issues such as stray dogs, stray cats, spay & neuter programs, vaccinations, licenses, pet adoption, bite reports, deceased pets, lost pets, local animal complaints and to report neglected or abused animals. There is no free Mesa animal control for wildlife issues.

Mesa Wildlife Removal Tip: CAN RACCOONS OPEN DOORS OR WINDOWS?

Raccoons are extremely able and intelligent creatures who use all their cunning and ability to try and get what they want, more often than not, they succeed. It is widely known that raccoons are foragers and scavengers, so given the chance, they will bravely venture out into human territory, mostly during the cover of darkness, and explore what food sources may be readily available to them.

Raccoons can climb over almost anything, fences, walls, chicken coops, garbage cans and dog kennels, and are very nimble with their paws, using them to open and explore whatever may smell like food to them.

Raccoons have four powerful and dexterous paws, with five fingers on each paw and long sharp claws that protrude from their fingers. This gives them the advantage when climbing, digging, hunting, burrowing, fishing and jumping, but the lack of opposable thumbs makes thinks like turning a doorknob a little more difficult.

Raccoons have been known to go up to a door and try to turn the knob. They are highly intelligent animals and it doesn't take long for them to figure out that turning the knob opens the door. But round smooth doorknobs present a challenge that surpasses them completely, though they may try with one or two hands, the smoothness of the doorknob prevents them from getting a firm grip on it, and the round shape means that without opposable thumbs they will never be able to get a steady hold on it and turn it. If the door is opened with a latch that you press downwards or a handle that is pushed then a persistent raccoon may very well be able to figure out how to open the door and get inside, especially if it is accompanied by other raccoons, they will work together to figure it out.

It is not uncommon to see raccoons using tools in the wild. They may use rocks to rub their food clean or small stones to break open acorns and nuts, their ability to choose, explore, observe makes them absolutely capable of figuring out how to open a door. Windows may be a bit more of a challenge, especially if they are the kind that is pushed upwards to open. Raccoons may not have the strength necessary to open this kind of window, especially as on the outside they have no lever or handle whatsoever and the smooth surface of the glass means that the raccoon will find it hard to get a firm grip on it.

Nevertheless, raccoons are extremely intelligent and are not deterred by challenges. They figure out how to open latches that gets them into chicken coops and can burrow their way into vegetable patches, making their access to food sources from humans almost a given.
