This raccoon baby was removed from a home in Brampton along with it’s five other siblings. These babies were most likely less than a day or 2 old. Last year we had our first baby batch removed a little bit earlier than this year in 2018. We believe that it has to do with the colder temperatures that are still somewhat present in early April. Since this picture, there has been a couple of homes with babies in April 2018. There are babies being born every day now, and pretty soon all the calls for raccoon removal will involve baby removal as well.
Is Your Home Ready?
Don’t wait until it’s too late. If you hear noises in your attic it’s best to take action before babies are born. When you are dealing with wildlife, prevention is always a good and worthy investment for your home. Prevention can keep your home safe especially after you’ve already had wildlife problems. You can also do your very own inspection by following our inspection guide here.
Generally if you’re in a neighborhood that is having issues with raccoons and squirrels, you want to make sure your home has prevention. Raccoons are lazy and will always look for easier opportunities to get shelter, so if your neighbor has prevention installed, chances are that you are next. These areas can be eaves-trough drains, vents, pipes, and junctions on your roof. In older homes, you may need to change your roof entirely.
