Combating raccoons the non-toxic way!
Raccoons are wild animals- they are the worst house guests that anyone could ask for. They are sloppy and destructive creatures! They invade our precious homes and make themselves at home in the attic.
The raccoon is a medium-sized mammal (http://en.wikipedia.org/
Raccoons have a tendency to destroy everything that they can lay their hands on. Home attics seem to be their habitat of choice. Raccoons given their destructive nature are reported to have torn ducts, insulation on pipes, chewed on wires, etc. It is believed that they do so in search for a bedding place. Raccoons are at the top of the list of wildlife that destroys vegetable gardens. They also are notorious for raiding bird feeders at night as well as garbage cans.
There have been numerous reports of raccoon damage. People in general don’t understand the risks associated with inviting these unruly creatures into their homes as pets. Raccoons are capable of spreading havoc as was demonstrated by a hair-raising incident. This happened a very long time ago, when a beautiful girl got scarred for life as she was attacked by a pet raccoon that mauled her when she was just 3 months old!! The poor soul went through excruciating pain and trauma and had to undergo numerous reconstructive surgeries even 10 years after the unfortunate incident. This was reported by the Mail online in an article dated 16th August, 2012. It also states that the “pet” raccoon had chewed off a part of her face in the incident
Also another incident was reported by KSDK.com on 15th March, 2011 where a 4-day old baby was attacked by a raccoon. The baby suffered from puncture wounds and a cut on her head. The reason for the attack was believed to be nosy and inquisitive nature of the animal.
Children in particular are highly vulnerable to attack from these vicious animals. A recent incident which went to press on 8th May, 2013 illustrates the same. The journalist reports that a 6-year old girl was subjected to unprovoked surprise attack in her own backyard. Imagine not being safe in your own backyard!
These wily creatures not only cause carnal damage, but also economical damage. Being inquisitive as well as dexterous by nature, they amount to huge damage in the wire and cable industry. They will chew wires and cables more often out of curiosity. Moreover most insurance companies don’t cover damage caused due to raccoons. They don’t pay for animal damage because it is seen as a direct result of homeowner neglect.
