Raccoons

Raccoons may seem cute, but you don’t want them around your home. They cause structural damage, destroy lawns, and carry disease. They nest in chimneys, crawlspaces, sheds, decks, and attics, making removal difficult without the help of a professional.

Since 2002, Old Island Pest Control has facilitated raccoon removal in Victoria, BC. We begin by determining the pest control services and products you need. We use green, environmentally conscious alternatives. Our professionals are also trained to repair damage caused by wildlife.

Damage

Common problems occur when raccoons look for nesting sites in buildings or residential properties. Raccoons can tear shingles, boards, and rooftops to get into your home. Once inside, they may displace and destroy insulation. Raccoons also pose additional danger to your household. They carry a number of diseases and internal parasites.

Disease

Raccoon droppings pose another threat. Raccoon roundworm produces microscopic eggs that develop in raccoon feces. If swallowed or inhaled, the eggs move throughout your body and can have severe consequences. Roundworm infection can cause serious problems including eye disease, brain damage, or death. Young children are most susceptible. Raccoons also carry rabies and distemper.
