  • We Can Solve It!
Many of Illinois'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 Illinois'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 St. Clair 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 Belleville animal control for wildlife issues.

Belleville Wildlife Removal Tip: How to get a raccoon out of a tree

A raccoon will always find ways to hunt for foods. It will also keep on searching for food in anywhere it is. It may also leave its place the entire year and comes back again. In the winter season, it searches a higher ground whereas it may go dormant until the weather gets good again. Now, if you see a raccoon in the tree, you need to get it out from it. This is because it is a known carrier of diseases and illnesses. Of course, you donít like the idea that your pets will have them, too.

How a Raccoon Gets Into a Tree?

A raccoon is known for its capability of hiding and climbing a tree. This is also especially if you have left the bark not protected. The tree and the fruit will be a good and sumptuous meal for it. It is actually a sneaky scavenger that climbs trees to get your fruits.

With the trunkís rough texture, it is just so easy for it to get the needed traction. If it is not able to gain its traction on it, it is also not able to get fruits from a tree. You will need to fix on a metal collar around the tree trunk. This will help you get a raccoon out of a tree.

How to Exactly Get It Off?

If you want to be sure on how to get it off of your tree, call a professional who is an expert and who is trained in this matter. You should keep in mind that this animal has diseases. That is why handling it by yourself may not be a good idea. The raccoon will not stay in the tree forever. In addition to that, it may move on to another for the search of water or food. If you want, you may make use of traps to relocate the raccoon.

Make the Tree Inaccessible for a Raccoon

When you already have removed the raccoon, you need to find ways on how to make the tree inaccessible for it. You may cut off the branches that hang low. You should make it sure that it wonít reach up any of those branches. But, of course, the reach depends on its size.

In addition to that, measure the trunk of the tree. This will help you to find the right size of the collar. This will usually be made of a sheet metal which is thirty-six inches in its length. You will have to wrap it on the tree.

Follow the Necessary Things Mentioned Above!

Go follow the necessary things mentioned above. For sure, you wonít consider it a problem anymore. This is especially true with the help of a professional!
