We charge a FLAT-RATE TRAPPING FEE for One (1) week of RACCOON trapping. There is NO set up fee, NO per animal fee, NO need for an estimate or quote. The trapping fee is all inclusive: Five (5) trips out every single day (Monday through Friday) to set the traps, check the traps and to relocate any Raccoon trapped. It is the law in the State of Georgia that the traps are checked every single day – No exceptions.
Daily trap checking is important for many reasons: 1) It’s the law, 2) It is more humane to the raccoons but equally important 3) It enables us to make the most out of your trapping dollars by our Professional Wildlife Technicians having the opportunity to reposition any traps that are not productive and rebaiting if necessary. Our raccoon trapping success rate for 1 week is 100%.
WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN A PROFESSIONAL PROVIDES RACCOON TRAPPING SERVICES.
- We have to inspect the property to determine the best trap to use and location of trap. On all
- We use live cage traps that are effective and humane.
- Any injured Raccoons trapped are taken to a wildlife rehabilitator to be treated then released when they are ready.
HAND CATCHING RACCOON
We treat these as an EMERGENCY CALL- 24/7 we respond. We find it easier to charge a flat rate fee to come to your property and hand catch and remove a raccoon that has found his way into your house or building. Our Licensed Wildlife Technicians will spend up to an hour looking for & attempting to catch the raccoon. Whether we leave with the raccoon or not we get paid for our effort and attempt to remove it.
RACCOON EXCLUSION (Repairs)
Exclusion is the act of using animal proof materials, devices and methods to keep the animals OUT. Once the animals are taken out, they leave behind odors, feces and scents which may attract other animals. Although we have taken the tenant away (far enough to never find their way back) it just clears the way for the next one to find their way in unless you block off its ability to “Get back IN”. Some of the most common entry areas for animals (not just Raccoons) are:
◊ Gable Vents ◊ Soffit Junctions ◊ Dryer/Bathroom Vents ◊ Construction Gap (Gutter Line) ◊ Holes
We only use the highest quality animal-proof materials and devices, therefore, we are proudly able to guarantee that no animal will get past the areas where we have performed the exclusion services. With all of this said, there is no way to give a price for exclusion work over the phone. WHILE we are setting up the traps it is necessary for us to determine how the animals are gaining access or entry into the building or property – this is when we are able to provide a proposal for the cost of the exclusion work. IF the proposal is acceptable we will perform the exclusion work while the trapping is being performed which increases the overall success of the entire process. Raccoons use a communal latrine so oftentimes feces clean-up needs to be considered as well.
RACCOON FECES CLEAN-UP
There are only two critters where we emphasize feces removal and clean-up: Bats & Raccoons. Both typically have concentrated areas (latrines) for their feces but also because of the severity of diseases that are in their feces. PLEASE DO NOT TOUCH RACCOON FECES. Raccoons can excrete high numbers of roundworm eggs through their feces and it can lead to serious health issues in humans as they affect the central nervous system, and affect our brain. Just FYI, worm eggs can last for years in their case. Setting aside that terrifying fact, their waste can carry a number of other serious diseases which directly affect humans. To clean the attic, We carefully remove all of the waste, most by hand and smaller particles by hepa vacuum. Then we apply special sanitizers, including an enzyme-based anti-microbial solution that eliminates any biohazard organic waste from animals, including droppings and urine.
