  • Problem Bird or Bat Infestation?

  • We Can Solve It!
Many of Massachusetts'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 Massachusetts'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 Middlesex 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 Newton animal control for wildlife issues.

Newton Wildlife Removal Tip: Is it legal for me to trap a raccoon?

Is it legal for you to trap a raccoon? The answer to this is a YES. This is especially true if it already has crossed or came into your property. But, you need to keep in mind that it is illegal to kill or harm a raccoon. This is especially right after you have trapped it.

In regard with trapping a raccoon, it is essential using only the best and most effective trap. A live trap will be useful in order not to bring harm to a raccoon.

1-Door Trap

This is easy and convenient for you to use. If the raccoon already gets inside the trap, it also steps right through the cage plate. The door will now automatically lock. This will now avoid the animal from escaping.

2-Door Trap

This is beneficial in a sense that a raccoon could easily enter without thinking twice. If you already have this trap, you will now need to identify the right spot. That way, the trap will be placed the right way possible. The trap will need to be positioned in the place where a raccoon usually lives. Place the trap right below the sheds, porch, attic, fence lines and tree hollows.

Place Bait in the Trap

This is an essential step that you will need to keep in mind. You could make use of sweetened foods as bait. These may include of fatty foods, mellows and meat. You will also need to position the bait the right way possible. That way, the raccoons will enter into the trap. In addition to that, place the bait firmly to avoid them from knocking them over.

One more thing is that you may make use of hard brick that will secure the bait in its right position. Leave the doors open. The trigger mechanism will need to really be made perfect. This will help in order that the raccoons will be trapped immediately. This is also as they decide to enter the trap.

Be Gentle with a Raccoon

If you already have caught a raccoon, you will need to be gentle with it. Just keep it relaxed and cool. Drape some piece of cloth right into the cage. Also, do not handle it with bare hands. This is an unwise and unhealthy idea to consider in mind. This is also because the animal might bite you. Now, you have learned if it is legal for you to trap a raccoon and all other essential things to keep in mind!
