  • We Can Solve It!
Many of California'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 California'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 Orange county animal services for assistance.

Newport Beach Wildlife Removal Tip: Do Mothballs and Ammonia Help Repel Raccoons?

We can purchase many repellents in the market offering the same benefits commonly stating the product can help drive away pests. But what is the truth behind these advertisements that they are really 100 % effective in eliminating these rodents who invade your household?

Are Mothballs Effective in Repelling Raccoons?

Napthalene, the chemical element which composes mothballs is the most common ingredient in repellent products sold in the market.

Why Are Mothballs Dangerous But Not Effective Repellent?

There are some factors why mothballs pose risks and cannot actually help in the removal of raccoons. The first major disaster mothballs can give is their impact to the environment because of carcinogen. It can cause cancer to household members.

Mothballs as Pesticides

Mothballs contain paradichlorobenzene and are considered to be one of the pesticides we have around and you should be cautious in using them for it has low mammalian toxicity and truly dangerous for people to inhale its vapor.

There are a lot of repellent products sold in the market that contain these harmful chemicals present in mothballs and although they might cause discomfort to rodents, it would still produce poor results and would not actually help you eliminate permanently the pests inside your house.

No research has yet found out that mothballs can effectively repel different kinds of raccoons pestering households and other buildings. Because of its high toxicity, it is quite risky to use mothballs especially when they are ingested.

Ammonia as Raccoon Repellent

On the other hand, how effective is ammonia as a raccoon repellent? Like mothballs or naphthalene balls commonly used in the household to treat also odor from inside closets, there is no proven discovery that these known rodent repellents can help to remove effectively pests from infesting your home.

Mothballs and Ammonia Can Temporarily Drive Away Raccoons

Sure thing that mothballs and ammonia odor can drive away certain raccoons from your house, but only temporarily and not 100 % effective to permanently eliminate them from invading your properties and nesting there. Others also claim that no matter how much mothballs or ammonia they have put in strategic places inside their houses, raccoons won’t seem to mind them at all.

The possible reason could be is that raccoons have become immune or got used to these common repellents and could not even be bothered by the strong odor these products emit.

Still, the most effective way to get rid of raccoons from entering your premises is to cover holes as possible entry points to your house. You must regularly check on your plumbing system and attic and other certain points of entry where pests can get inside.
