How to effectively get rid of raccoons in Toronto, Brampton, Oakville, Milton, Caledon, Orangeville, Burlington, Hamilton, Newmarket, Vaughan, Richmond Hill, Ajax, Pickering, Whitby, and many other GTA locations?
The Greater Toronto Area is home to a very large and stable raccoon population. Raccoons are among the most adorable wildlife roaming our urban landscape in the Greater Toronto Area. Their noteworthy presence in our cities suggests that raccoons have done quite well in evolutionary terms - they have adapted to urbanization and have developed new talents in foraging and accessing new denning sites.
There is no one-size-fits-all solution to a residential raccoon invasion. A successful raccoon removal process starts with a careful and thorough inspection of the property. A qualified wildlife removal professional carries out a roof and attic inspection to identify the source and the scale of the problem.
Once the technicians have gathered all the necessary information they will decide what the best eviction technique would be. When choosing an eviction technique we try to minimize the risks to the property and its residents. We aim to resolve the problem in the safest, most affordable, and effective way possible.
Once the eviction plan is successfully implemented, we will return to the property for a further inspection to ensure everything went as planned and to make a final damage assessment.
Finally, our wildlife removal technicians will repair the animal's access point. We use the most suitable repair material that will prevent animals from re-entering.
Raccoons are resilient and smart. In an experiment carried out by a York University professor, the first thing an urban raccoon tried to do when smelling cat food inside a lidded trash can was opening up the trash can lid. There are also numerous videos posted on the internet by Toronto residents that prove some of the city's raccoons have figured out how to open the so-called 'raccoon-proof green bins'.
Touch sensation accounts for an overwhelming part of a raccoon's sensory capacity. Seventy-five percent of a raccoon's sensory brain functions are wired to process touch sensations. And a significant percentage of sensory nerves concentrate in the paws.
Raccoon's traditional habitats include heavily-wooded areas that offer an abundant supply of vegetation and water. Urbanization has resulted in a significant reduction in raccoons' natural habitat. Rather than move out of their traditional territories, raccoons have remained and tried to adapt to city life.
Male raccoons tend to be solitary animals, while female raccoons often live in groups of four-five together with their young. They often go foraging together for better protection from larger animals. Male raccoons tend to start living alone before they turn one.
TSR wildlife removal has years of experience in removing raccoons and keeping them out of buildings. We will use cutting-edge products to remove them and prevent them from returning.
If not removed promptly and professionally, raccoon intrusions can grow more complex within a short time. Raccoons can cause serious damage to roofs, attics, electrical wiring, ventilation systems, and other parts of a building. Following the birth season, the scale of the problem would grow significantly. The number of animals to be removed and the number of sites within a building affected/damaged by animals would increase significantly.
