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 Lake county animal services for assistance.

There is no free Merrillville animal control for wildlife issues.

Merrillville Wildlife Removal Tip: Is A Raccoon That Is Active During The Daytime Rabid?

Many people live with a common misconception that raccoons active during the day hours means it is affected by rabies virus. There is no doubt to say that raccoons are nocturnal animals and they prefer to stay active during night hours. So, when people see them actively moving in the premises in day hours; they commonly believe that something is wrong with this animal.

We can say that rabid raccoon shows some unusual behavior but wondering outside in day hours is not always one of those disease symptoms. These nocturnal animals also wonder in the day hours when they feel hungry, and the chances are more when it is a female raccoon collecting food for her babies. Raccoons cannot always sleep and do nothing; they are active and notorious creatures so when they get bored in their den; they simply move out to destroy things around. They may search some food or drink water.

The baby raccoons have additional nutritional requirements, so mother raccoon can roam around in search of food during day hours as well. Now when it is clear that daytime activity of raccoons does not mean that they are affected with rabies, so you might be interested to know the symptoms of a rabid raccoon. Well! Rabid raccoons can be easily identified from the level of sickness they face. In case if you find a raccoon roaming around; in lethargic motion or observe paralyzed legs; there are chances that it is affected with rabies. Rabies affected raccoons often keep on walking around in circular motion, and they lurch in some unnatural way. In short, you can easily identify that they are sick from their abnormal behavior.

In case if raccoon you are observing is alert, agile and running smoothly around; it means this animal is not affected with rabies. But it doesn't mean that you should go close and offer him something to eat. It is better to stay away because these animals become aggressive when they find unwanted people in their territory. No matter at what time of the day you find a raccoon roaming around; leave it alone and don't go close to it. It might be searching for some food and will move away normally. But if it is walking in odd patterns and seems overfriendly with your yard and garden area; it is better to report to the wildlife removal agency.

Female raccoons generally prefer to create dens in the human habitats as it appears them most safe and comfortable place to raise babies. These messy animals can take over your attic, deck or porch to give birth to babies and will stay there for few months. But in order to keep your pets and family members safe from diseases carried by raccoons; it is better to contact professional raccoon removal company. These licensed experts know right techniques to handle raccoons and can keep you safe from their destructive behavior.
