Raccoons are thieves! They will steal your trash, steal your fruits and vegetables from your gardens, and steal your peace!
These naturally masked creatures often do their dirty work at night. They will dig in gardens or trash bags after the sun has gone down and use porches and sheds for den sites during the day.
We can help! At ACME Pest Control, our licensed professionals will safely and humanely rid your property of this sneaky creature! Please keep in mind that raccoons are aggressive; that’s why it’s best to have them professionally removed.
Unfortunately, the raccoon population throughout the United States is rising, which indicates more raccoons will be looking for shelter in homes or businesses.

Naturally, raccoons like to hide in existing shelters like hollow trees, ground burrows, and muskrat houses, but spaces like attics, crawlspaces, and chimneys are becoming more prevalent with habitat loss. These clever creatures are excellent climbers and intelligent problem solvers, making raccoon removal a daunting task for a property owner.
At ACME Pest Control, we will inspect your property, looking for signs such as footprints on, in, or around your home, large openings leading to the attic or crawl space, and raccoon poop.
We believe that live trapping is the most effective and humane way to remove a raccoon. We try to avoid direct capture (and don’t recommend it) because raccoons are a rabies vector species.
After raccoon removal, it is imperative to seal all entry points to prevent future entry. Ensuring you don’t create a home for raccoons outside your property will also help avoid attracting raccoons.
Please note that habitat modification will become necessary for prevention after dealing with a raccoon invasion. Frightening devices only temporarily work, and there are no toxicants regulated for raccoons.
If you are concerned that you have a raccoon problem either in or around your property, call ACME Pest Control. Our Raccoon Removal Services can help!
