Many of Indiana'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 Indiana'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 Elkhart county animal services for assistance.

If they know that your garden is loaded with lots of food; they will rarely give up their food search mission. Being clever creatures; they often go undetected but once you are aware that all the mess in your garden is created by a raccoon; it is important to take immediate steps to get rid of this animal. Here are few tips to keep raccoons away from your yard and garden.

Remove their food sources:

As raccoons can feed on anything that is easily available in the surrounding area, so your garden can also offer them pretty good diet. Many homeowners complaint that raccoons keep on destroying their trash cans, crops, and fruits. If you want to get rid of them, it is important to put your trash in the tight fitting and well-locked cans. The external premises around your house must be kept clean and free from open sources of water. Don't even feed your pets and birds in the yard or garden area because raccoons can also come to eat their food.

Make your garden unappealing to raccoons:

As raccoons love to visit the dark and shadowed areas so, you can change the appeal of your garden opposite to that. The idea is to install bright lights and motion sensor based noisy alarms. The unwanted noise and lighting can annoy raccoons, and they will prefer not to return to your garden. You can also install personal solar powered raccoon repellents to ensure low-cost raccoon removal. A pepper spray and hot sauce may also help you to scare raccoons away from your premises.

Set up a live trap with bait:

When above methods do not work; the last option is to set up live cage trap to capture the raccoon so that it can be relocated to a far area from human habitats. Although trapping a raccoon is not legal in most states, but if you are permitted to do so, it can help you to avail permanent relief from animal attacks. Once raccoon is trapped inside the live cage trap, prefer to release it at a distance nor less than 5 miles away from residential area. You can also take help from professionals to get rid of raccoons from your garden.
