Charleston pest control

We are South Carolina's top experts in wildlife and raccoon control. We are not a typical Charleston raccoon control or pest control company. We don't treat wild animals like insects, because they are not! You can't just use poison to get rid of them. You also can't just set a few traps on the ground and call it good. Each situation is unique. And remember, if you have raccoons living in your house, it is almost certainly a female with a litter of young inside. These juveniles must be removed by hand, or they will starve to death and die. And after they are gone, the entry holes into the house must be sealed with professional repairs. Unlike most Charleston pest control, we focus on complete and permanent solutions, by following these steps:

  • Inspect the entire house, ground to roof, and the attic
  • Seal shut all entry areas with professional grade steel
  • If in attic, we remove the baby raccoons by hand
  • Technical and human raccoon trapping appropriate to situation
  • When necessary, we clean raccoon droppings and replace insulation

Charleston Raccoon Control Tip: Choosing The Right Place To Release A Trapped Raccoon
A raccoon infestation around your property can prove to be a significant nuisance if you are a homeowner, but it is something that can need to be dealt with from time to time if you live in North America. One of the most common ways of dealing with this for both homeowners and the professionals that operate in animal control will be to trap and relocate the raccoon. This is usually quite straightforward and will require a cage trap and a little bit of bait, and when placed in the right location, you will usually be able to catch the raccoon without significant difficulty.

Transporting The Raccoon To The Relocation Spot
Before choosing a spot to relocate the pest animal, you should always prepare the transportation before laying the trap, as you will need to relocate the animal within a few hours of trapping it to ensure it is treated humanely. Ideally, a flatbed truck will be the best option so that you are not transporting the raccoon in a confined space, as its urine, feces and musk can leave quite a strong smell. If you do transport the animal in a car, make sure that you lay a waterproof layer below the trap, and it is usually best to cover the trap in a blanket, as this will help to keep the raccoon a little calmer during the journey.

The Presence Of Other Domestic Or Commercial Buildings
One of the first things you should consider when you are choosing a good relocation spot for your trapped raccoon is whether there are any other buildings near where you are thinking of releasing the animal. If it is near any domestic or commercial buildings you should avoid releasing the raccoon there, as this will simply transfer the raccoon problem from your property to someone else's. The ideal relocation point for a raccoon will be well clear of any other urban settlements or any agricultural buildings either.

What Type Of Habitats Will Give A Raccoon The Best Chance Of Survival
When you are picking out the best type of location to release a trapped raccoon, it is also worth considering whether the area you intend to release the animal offers the raccoon a good chance of survival. The ideal location to release a raccoon will be in or around a woodland area, and the reason for this is that the raccoon's natural instincts in rural areas is to live around trees, as they are talented climbers and will often flee into the trees when they encounter a threat. While you don't have to release a raccoon in a rural area near woodland, choosing this type of relocation spot will give the animal the best chance of survival once it has been relocated.

Regulations Around The Transport And Relocation Of Raccoons
While transporting and relocating a raccoon is generally considered to be the most humane way of dealing with this pest animal species, it is also worth highlighting that the regulations around how to deal with raccoons do vary regionally. There are some areas that have rules around the transportation of pest animal species around that county or state, while in other places there are laws prohibiting the release of pest animals in that particular area. Before you decide to transport and release any pest animal, including a raccoon, you should always check the situation with the local animal services department, who should be able to advise you of the exact situation in your area around the relocation of wild animal species such as raccoons.
