Protect Your Home and Power from Raccoons with Critter Guard
Raccoons are among the most curious, clever, and adaptable creatures. They have tiny but powerful legs that make them excellent climbers. The most remarkable feature of raccoons is their excellent night vision.
Unfortunately, it is these amazing features along with their devouring appetite, that also make raccoons notorious pests. They can easily find their way into your home and chew on anything they find in their path, including important wires. Fortunately at Critter Guard, our Line Guard and Pole Guard products are the perfect solutions to keep raccoons out of your house and away from your power cables.
How Are Raccoons Getting Into My Home?
There are several ways raccoons can get into your home and attic. By traveling across power lines and trees, raccoons can easily access your roof and use the chimneys, squeeze through the roof vents, slide in through loose or missing fascia or soffit, or chew and tear their way through your roof to enter your attic.
Once inside, raccoons will make a shelter in your attic, chewing on anything they can find for food, including wood, storage boxes, and power cables, which could lead to power loss.
Is It Possible to Get Rid of Raccoons?
It's harder to get rid of raccoons once they inhabit your home. The best solution is to prevent them from accessing your roof in the first place.
Our Line Guard and Pole Guard products help deter raccoons and other critters from climbing on power lines, utility poles, and other electrical systems, preventing power outages in your area and keeping them off your roof and out of your attic.
The Line Guard features a jump barrier that is hard for the critters to get over and a series of line rollers that are impossible to grasp and keep rolling every time they are stepped on. Using this simple but effective tool, you can make raccoons in your home a thing of the past.
