A few simple tricks to discourage raccoons from making a home on your property:

  • Don’t leave food out of any kind.

  • Don’t put your garbage out early and make sure it always has a secure lid.

  • Ensure all soffit and facia is secure and without holes or spaces that animals can get into.

  • Check exterior pipes and dryer vents to ensure they are covered (with mesh wire) so that animals cannot get in.

  • Clean up the excess seed and shells from bird feeders off of the ground regularly.
