Raccoon Proofing, Exclusion & Trapping in the NYC Metro Area
At some point, you’ve probably had a run-in with a raccoon. They come out at night and are usually rummaging through whatever food they can find in the trash bin, garbage or street. Don’t let their cute appearance fool you though, they can be a major nuisance. If your property is left exposed to the constant presence of raccoons, you should be concerned with possible property damage, the spreading of disease such as Rabies and pest infestation.
As a nuisance problem, they will find a way into your home or commercial property looking for food. If you’ve got a trash bin with bags carefully tied and disposed of, then be prepared for a nice surprise in the morning. Usually they have no qualms about making a mess as long as these Raccoons find a good meal. You’ll step outside your home or arrive to a commercial property and seen garbage thrown literally everywhere as if it was a confetti party.

Why You Need Professional Trap Installation to Keep Raccoons Out
Most people have this idea that hiring a company once will drive nuisance animals such as raccoons away permanently. This could not be further from the truth. Unfortunately, the industry terminology for handling wildlife throughout New York City is referred to as “Wildlife Control & Management” for a very good reason. You don’t have to worry about nuisance raccoons being a permanent fixture or causing problems for an infinite duration of time, however there are some very important factors at play here which you should know.
The most important thing to understand going forward is that any legitimate professional will tell you that nuisance animals or pests always return. They will never permanently leave. With this being said, you need to approach the problem by thinking about how to keep these animals out of your facility or home. Most of the projects we complete involve nuisance animal invaders that have caused tremendous damage, left disgusting nests behind and have chewed their way through various components such as rooftop areas, vents, walls, gutters and more.
What we’re trying to say is that you’re going to need a company that specializing in providing custom trap installations for Raccoons. In addition, you’ll be in need of technicians that have proper proofing and exclusion experience. This means patching up holes that animals have chewed through and installing the necessary deterrents to keep them out for good. Have a look at the gallery below. These are examples of wildlife traps we’ve set within commercial and residential properties.
Examples of Wildlife Damage & Trap Installations As a Proactive Measure
The Hazards of Raccoon Infestations
In extreme cases, we have seen Raccoons rip shingles or fascia boards off of homes and buildings to get inside. They will also try to get in via the attic or chimney. Because Raccoons are primarily known to carry Rabies, we suggest never approaching or trying to handle the situation yourself. Standard Pest Management has trained professionals that are suited up with all the appropriate protective gear needed to capture and humanely remove Raccoons.
Don’t worry about the health of the Raccoons, we will safely remove them from your property using effective, time tested techniques. You should also be concerned because they are known to carry other parasites such as Ticks, Mites and Fleas. These pests will cause an entirely different issue that you don’t want to have.
Additional Raccoon Intrusion Concerns
Occasionally we may come across a dead Raccoon or a nest filled with rotten food remnants along with other not so nice elements like parasites. Standard Pest Management specializes in the cleanup, repair, removal and odor control of such instances.
This is especially a vital service if we find a dead Raccoon somewhere inside your home. That area will need to be professionally disinfected, cleaned and the animal-removed.
