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.

Key West Wildlife Removal Tip: How to get rid of raccoons without killing them

While raccoons may be cuddly looking critters, they can be a serious nuisance around your home. These animals will get into your garbage or dig into other areas around your home and really create problems for you. Add to it that they are the carriers of many different kinds of diseases that these animals carry, including rabies, and it is clear that you have to do all that you can to keep them away.

The problem is that they can pose a real challenge. Raccoons are pretty creative little critters, and can figure out a way to get around many of the barriers that you would create. If you are wondering how to get rid of raccoons without killing them, then here are some things that you want to try.

First, you want to start by taking measures that will keep the raccoons away from your property because there is nothing for them to find there. This means that you don't want to leave your pet's dish outside, you should make sure that garbage can lids are securely fastened, birdfeeders are not accessible, and any other source of food that the animal may find is eliminated. If there is no reason for it to come to your property, then here she will not come around.

You also want to try to put up a fence to keep the animal from being able to come onto your property. This is one of the best kinds of deterrence if you properly set it up. The fence must be built so that it is at least 12 inches below the surface of the ground. By performing this extra measure, you ensure that the animal will be unable to take its way underneath the fence and onto your property. This will most assuredly help you and keep you get out.

Additional measures that you can take include using such things as motion sensors. Raccoons are nocturnal creatures, meaning that they come out at nighttime when it is dark. By having a motion sensor that is attached to a floodlight, when the raccoon comes near your property it will activate the light, which will startle it forcing it to run away. Another similar measure that you can use is attaching a motion sensor to a sprinkler system. When the water starts to spray it, you can be sure it will run and likely not return because it will be startled by how it was treated.

The big dog could also have a great effect on keeping the raccoon away. If you leave your dog out at night and you have a fence around your property, these two measures will combine to give you an effective technique keeping the raccoon away.

These kinds of measures you will see that your raccoon problem will be a short-lived one, and you will not have had to take any kind of action to terminate the raccoon's life. These should really help you to resolve your problem.
