Four Reasons to Call a Professional for Effective Raccoon Removal


Raccoons may be cute, but don’t be deceived by their looks. The moment they turn your attic into their own home, it’s time to take action. They can cause a lot of hassle, stealing your food and turning your attic into a breeding ground. Also, they might be carrying diseases that can affect the health of your family.

These animals, however, aren’t easy to catch. They’re intelligent, quick and very aggressive when cornered. This is why it’s inadvisable to try to trap or catch them yourself. It is always best to call a professional specializing in raccoon removal in Boca Raton.

Aggressiveness

When feeling threatened, raccoons can turn aggressive; they may attack you, your children, or even pets. They’ll cause chaos by tipping your garbage bins or bursting into your living spaces through the windows. Given this, raccoons must be trapped and handled properly, which professionals are trained to do.

A Handy Guide to Preventing Pesky Palm Rats from Damaging Your Home


Palm rats can cause a lot of trouble when they find a way into your home. They can destroy electrical wires by gnawing on them, creating a short circuit and damaging electronic devices. Your kitchen especially isn’t safe from these rodents, as they are adept at sneaking in and stealing your food. They also invade your garbage bin to eat leftover food. The garden and the roof are other parts of the house that palm rats in Florida can damage.

Keeping these pests out is necessary to keep peace and order in your house. Here’s a guide on preventing them from getting into your home.

Cut Their Food Supply

One of the main reasons palm rats target your home is the availability of food. Given this, discourage them by bringing pet food inside at night and making sure there are no leftovers in the bird feeders. Palm rats like citrus, so pick such fruits, even if not yet ripe. Retrieve those that fall from the tree as well.
