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 Scottsdale animal control for wildlife issues.

Raccoons are agile woodland creatures that like to live near streams, forests and relatively close to people. They hunt small animals and forage for acorns, nuts and seeds, and also like to rummage among the garbage bags that humans put outside theirs houses for scraps of leftover food.

They are known to be light footed, agile and very fast, which makes them excellent climbers. They can climb up almost any surface, and even tackle fearlessly vertical walls and fences, this means that jumping is also one of their many physical abilities. Their small bodies are built so that they can evenly distribute their weight on all four paws or put all their weight on two. They have five fingers on each paw and long sharp claws on all of them, giving them a firm grip on almost any surface. Their hind legs are longer and thicker than their front ones, which look almost like tiny arms with hands. This means that their hind legs can become powerful levers that propel them forwards when jumping.

Raccoons can jump almost as well as any feline, though not as high. The shape of their bodies gives them special ability to jump forwards, making it easy for them to avoid traps, and make a quick escape when necessary. While jumping vertically may present more of a challenge for them, it is by no means impossible, and they rely heavily of their incredible capacity to climb to get to the top of a fence, chicken coop or a bird's nest up in a tree.

This means that jumping over fences or onto houses can be done, with a little help from their climbing tricks. Although jumping upwards is nor their strong point, a raccoon will always find a way in if there is anything on the other side that interests him in the way of food.

Once up where they want to be, these brave little critters are not afraid of heights. They can jump with ease and agility forwards towards a branch, ledge or windowsill, or jump downwards to the ground or nearby level. This means that, although not great jumpers, raccoons are very resourceful and will always find a way to get where it needs to go.

This, mixed with the fact that despite being shy, they let their curiosity get the better of them, means that despite fences to try to keep them out, raccoons will generally get in. As they are also hunters, the smell of livestock, food or fruits and vegetables lures them in and can easily climb a tree and jump from branch to roof in a matter of seconds, if it means the chance of getting something to eat.
