Raccoons

Raccoons

The raccoon with its white face and dark fur around its eyes resembles a thief, and it comes into your yard to steal, mostly food. Eliminating the attraction is a great first step, but getting rid of raccoons, takes an integrated approach. Some signs that a raccoon may be invading your space include the following:

  • pilfered trash receptacles
  • pilfered bird feeders
  • stolen crops or even compost
  • droppings inside attics and sheds
  • ripped ductwork or insulation

Call Sudbury Pest Solutions to schedule an appointment if you spot any of these tell-tale signs. (978) 443-2000
