What Fall Means to Wildlife Pests

When the summer temperatures begin to drop, many species of wildlife start preparing for the winter weather to come. To some animals, including raccoons, autumn signals that it is time to secure a home for the winter. As a homeowner, you don’t want them to build a house inside your home.

Raccoons are a common problem for homeowners in Maryland and across the United States. They often knock over and dig through trash cans looking for goodies. Their ability to adapt to heavily populated areas makes them a problem in metropolitan and suburban neighborhoods.

The Dangers of Raccoon Infestation

Raccoons can cause a lot of damage for a homeowner. They can get inside your house, attic, and basement, so be sure to secure those areas. But the problem doesn’t stop with them entering your dwelling and making a mess. They can also spread disease. Raccoons are responsible for approximately 60% of all rabies cases in the state of Maryland. They can also be dangerous to have around your pets. Raccoons can pass canine distemper, as well as parvovirus, to your pet dogs.
