  • We Can Solve It!
Many of Florida'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 Florida'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 Citrus 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 Hernando animal control for wildlife issues.

Hernando Wildlife Removal Tip: What Should I Do With A Raccoon After I Catch It?

If you have trapped a raccoon, you should either relocate it or kill it, catching it in the first place is illegal though. You need to have a licence to catch an animal troubling you but if you don't have any; you should make sure you follow the laws. Different countries have different laws so if you have caught a raccoon it's better to kill it as it carries the bacteria and viruses of rabies and other diseases and in the process of trapping and relocating the raccoon there is a risk of getting infected.

If you do not know the legalities to catch a raccoon, you need to take them away and leave it at least 10 miles away or it will track its way back to the home. The most important thing to keep in mind is if you have trapped a raccoon at your home chances are that it might be a female and have its young ones somewhere in your house. You need to find the babies as well, only taking their mother will be cruel as they will starve and die and then your house will stink.

What to do?

You should check the trap many times to make sure that you don't leave the animal suffering. While you handle the trap, you need to be careful as it may reach out and harm you by scratching and if in case your hand goes inside the cage, they can even bite you. Some states have laws to kill the raccoon as it carries rabies and is dangerous for the society while some doesn't allow killing but relocating it. If you are relocating the raccoon with the babies, as soon as you open the cage the female would run away and let the young ones run behind her, she will eventually come back to the young ones when you are gone.

Most of the times people prefer to release the raccoons in some other area rather than killing or shooting them. When you are relocating a raccoon from the trap, you need to take care and follow some simple safety measures so you are not infected by the rabies bacteria they carry. Releasing a raccoon from the cage that has back doors, you need to stand behind at the back and slowly lift up the door of the cage and step back because the raccoon will try to free itself as soon as it can and run ahead.

Though relocating any wild animal is against law and can cause harm to the other people and animal staying in that area. We do not recommend killing them as its brutal and inhumane way of getting rid of them.
