Fort Myers pest control

We are Florida's top experts in wildlife and raccoon control. We are not a typical Fort Myers 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 Fort Myers 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

Fort Myers Raccoon Control Tip: Keeping Raccoons Away From Your Garden
There are many animals that can turn out to be a nuisance if they become active around your property, and for gardeners the raccoon is one of the most frustrating animals to deal with. They can cause a range of different types of damage around the garden, from tearing up a grass lawn through to stealing fruit from the trees and any other food sources that they can find around your garden. There are however steps that you can try to take to keep the raccoons away, and while some are quite straightforward others may require a little more investment and effort to deter the raccoons.

What Is Attracting Raccoons To Your Garden?
Ultimately, it will almost always be the presence of food sources that will attract raccoons to your garden, although some may also have built a nest nearby, meaning the garden is one of their nearest food sources too. While the fruit and vegetables that you grow may be one of the food sources, the lawns in your garden can also prove to be a food source, as the raccoons will be able to hunt the insects that are living just below the surface of the grass. Raccoons also prefer gardens that have some good areas of shelter, so those gardens with shrubs and other cover sources such as wood piles can tend to have more raccoon problems than those with a larger amount of open space.

Removing Food Sources For The Raccoons
Another measure that you can take to keep raccoons away is to make sure there are fewer food sources in your garden that the raccoons can take advantage of. While this can include growing less fruits that are easily accessible for raccoons, this doesn't mean that you have to stop growing them entirely, with innovative approaches such as putting a mesh cage over those plants being another way of protecting those fruits. One key step is to make sure that if you do have fruit trees, then any fallen fruit is removed promptly, as once the fruits start to decay the scent they produce is significantly stronger and more likely to attract raccoons and other pest animals.

Using A Fence To Keep Out Raccoons
While fencing is not always the most attractive option when it comes to protecting your garden from pest animals, when installed correctly it certainly can prove to be one of the most effective measures available. Ideally, your fence should surround the entire garden without any gaps, although there will always need to be gates for you to get in, and to prevent animals from burrowing under the fence, make sure it is embedded around six inches into the ground. Raccoons are also very talented climbers, so the other aspect is to make sure that they can't get over the top of the fence, and using an electric wire or razor wire can both be effective in this regard.

Trapping And Removing A Problem Raccoon 
Like many other animals, raccoons can be creatures of habit, and they will often return to areas where they have found good scavenging to enjoy, even when the food sources themselves have been removed. In this case, you may find the only solution that will solve the raccoon problem is to catch and remove the raccoon. For this work you will need a cage trap, which should be placed close to the access point the raccoon is using to get in and out of the garden. Place some wet pet food in the trap as bait, and then make sure you are checking the trap regularly until you have caught your problem raccoon, which can then be relocated or euthanized.
