How to Keep Raccoons Away from Your Business

While raccoons are very interesting animals, you don't want to share the same space with them, be it your business or home. The small bandits are very destructive and irritating to deal with, plus they can even be hazardous to you and your pets.

Fortunately, you can deal with a raccoon infestation in several ways successfully but humanely. Keep reading as we go over several strategies for keeping raccoons off your property.

How to Keep Raccoons Away From Your Business

Raccoons not only cause damage to your property, but also to electric lines that can cause business downtime. Here are ways to get rid of these destructive bandits in a humane manner:

1. Remove All the Food Sources

The primary reason raccoons will come to your property is the availability of food. Raccoons are omnivores, meaning they will consume almost everything they can get their paws on. Therefore, you need to make sure that all your trash cans are secured and all your pet feeders are empty at night, including bird feeders.

2. Use Raccoon Traps

Trapping and relocating raccoons is another successful and humane method of dealing with a raccoon infestation. Animal-friendly raccoon traps are available and may be used to catch these pesky creatures. To be sure of success with this procedure, however, you should consult and work with an authorized wildlife control expert.

3. Remove Trash and Debris from Your Property

Keeping your compound clean and free from debris is another effective way to keep raccoons away from your business premises. This is because debris in your compound is suitable habitat for insects, grubs, and larvae which are raccoons' favorite foods.

4. Utilize Repellents

You can also use repellents to keep raccoons off your property. Raccoons are partly attracted to trash because of their acute sense of smell. Even through sealed bags and garbage cans, they can pick up on the faint aroma of food. As such, you can use ammonia, cayenne, vinegar, or mint-scented trash bags to deter raccoons.

5. Install Critter Guard's Line Guard and Pole Guard

Finally, you should install Critter Guard's Line Guard and Pole Guard to protect your business premises from unplanned power shortages. These products will help you reduce unplanned business downtime caused by raccoons messing with power lines and electric cables. Therefore, don't hesitate to talk to one of our experts and learn more about how our products can help you keep raccoons off your property.

Protect Your Business with Critter Guard

Safeguarding your business from the troublesome presence of raccoons basically means preserving your property's integrity and ensuring the safety and functionality of your business environment.

Raccoons, while intriguing creatures from a distance, can wreak havoc that extends beyond just material damage. By proactively addressing raccoons, you're taking a significant step toward maintaining a secure and hygienic space for both you and your customers.
