Miami Wildlife Removal Tip of the Month

Raccoon Prevention Tips

If you have Miami raccoons hanging around your house and yard, chances are something there attracted them. They most often move in because of accessible food and water, and stay if there is a comfortable space. Raccoons are omnivores, and will eat most anything. Insects, bugs, carrion, small mammals, eggs, small invertebrates, baby birds, fruits, vegetables, garbage, seeds, pet food , and other animal feed are on their diet.

Keep your yard Clean and clear!
Put garbage in cans with tight fitting lids, pick up unattended pet food, and pick up any ripe fruit and veggies from you r garden. Do not make bird and Florida raccoon feeders easily accessible. Keep animal feed in secure bins.

Do not make your place inviting to raccoons!
Dispose of any brush piles, stacks of lumber, high growth, weedy areas, and standing water. Be sure to keep the doors and lower windows to any barn, woodshed, garage, boathouse, etc. on your Miami property screened or shut tight. Repair any cracks or holes in around doors, windows, and siding. Cap your chimney. Make sure basement windows close securely, and have screens. Do not leave stacks of newspapers, boxes, or paper trash lying about. Keep trees and shrubberies trimmed and cleared at the base.

Scare them off
Using natural repellents is supposed to work as well. Sprinkle mothball, cinnamon, pepper flakes, or ammonia around your Miami yard. Planting marigold, lavender, and mint around the outskirts of your yard is said to be an excellent deterrent. You can put up moving deterrents to scare them away like shiny Mylar ribbons, aluminum pans on strings, pinwheels, or Wind chimes that provide both movement and sound. You can also purchase commercial devices called sonic emitters that claim to drive the creatures away with high-pitched sounds. These are sold everywhere and range in price from 20.00 to over 500.00. Be warned- there are reports that these devices have been known to disturb some household pets and there are claims that they attract some birds. To scare the Florida raccoons away, you can Sprinkle urine from a natural predator like a fox, big cat (like a mountain lion or panther), wolf, or bear in your area. You can purchase these “scents” wherever most hunting supplies are sold. Plan outdoor activities in the yard often.

Give them boundaries
Fence your yard or garden so that Miami raccoons cannot get in. You should use hardware cloth because they cannot fit through the small sized holes. It should be about 3-4 feet high. You need to BURY your hardware cloth fence at least 6 inches deep because raccoons dig. Angle the top few inches of the fence AWAY from your property to prevent the animals from scaling it. Raccoons are skilled climbers. Many people are fans of an electric fence, but that is a drastic measure that is not necessary. Trim all trees, shrubs, and bushes that might overhang your fence. Avoid piling anything against it to be used as a ladder. Raccoons eat lots of bugs, larvae, and rodents, having them around are not a bad thing. They just need to be controlled. Watch the outside of your house at night to see if you catch a Florida raccoon coming or going. If you fear they are making a home, try lighting up the attic or under the porch where believe they are living.

Always be sure to check for young in a nest or den before you take any drastic actions. Miami raccoons are by nature, nocturnal (night creatures), they will not like the light. You can also try using a radio turned up loud. If you have found the raccoon entry holes, get them blocked as soon as the raccoon leaves for the evening. Make their “home “as unpleasant as possible for their return. Catch it in a live trap or exclusion funnel trap and have a Florida animal removal service take it away. Live traps are inexpensive and readily available. Exclusion funnels are a simple design that is easy to make, and work every time. For bait, use something smelly, like canned cat food, apples, or fish. Always remember to check any traps often, and remove them once you are sure you are raccoon free.

For more help and tips on what to do if you are a victim of a Miami raccoon invasion, contact your local Ag extension, a parks and wildlife office, or a Florida professional animal removal service. Any of these helpful folks should be able to solve your problems. They can also keep you up to date on any laws, rules, or regulations concerning the handling of raccoons in your area. You can even have them come to your home to help you with your problem, or to carry away trapped animals. Remember to take precautions whenever dealing with wildlife. Wear protective gear, and never try to catch one by hand. Any wild animal will become vicious if it feels threatened. Follow these tips and you should be able to remain Florida raccoon free!
