Should I ever poison a raccoon? Having a raccoon around your property is not only a terrible inconvenience, but also can be a complete hazard to your health. Raccoons carry a lot of diseases, and so having them traipse around your property poses a risk to the health of you, your family and your pets. They simply have to go.
Some attempt all kinds of safety measures to try to deter the raccoon from coming on their property. Repellants, flood lights, automatic sprinklers, and predator urine are just some of the options they employ trying to keep the raccoons away. Even though they try these things they find that they are having no success and so they turn to choosing more lethal options to accomplish their goals.
One of those options that people select is to use poison to kill the raccoon. This seems like a great choice. You put some poison in some food or along an area that you know that the raccoon is likely to travel and let the chemical do its job.
This seems like a great option, but in reality poisons should not be the option you select. There is just too much risk involved in using them, and you need to consider this as part of your selection process. It is understood that you want to get rid of the raccoon, but here is why you do not want to use poisons.
First of all, poisons probably pose more risk to you, your family and your pets than they do to the raccoon. You know how they say that people who have guns are more likely to shoot themselves than a criminal will? That is not true at all, but the use of poison is quickly likely to cause someone in your family to get sick.
If you have children they will get into those poison containers. They are just too tempting, and if so they are likely to swallow the poison and become sick or die. Your pets may eat the food the poison is on and may become poisoned themselves. You may inadvertently kill your own pet.
There is the concern about what poisons do to the environment around. If you put some poison out and it rains, that poison will seep into the ground and then you can have real problems. Your garden, grass, plants, or flowers can become poisoned as well.
There is also the circle of life situation. If you poison the raccoon, other animals may get to it before you can dispose of the raccoon, thus leaving you with a wake of death behind.
If you have animals in your house, it's important that you hire a company that will do the job correctly. We do a complete job from start to finish, for a permanent solution to your Minneapolis pest control wildlife problem. We inspect the house, remove all of the animals humanely, repair the damage, and seal the entry holes with guarantee, so that you never have crittes in your attic again.
