Raccoon damage in your landscaping can vary, they spend their time digging for grubs anywhere they can find them. The most evident area of damage is often in sod. They dig holes in the sod and then peel it back while looking for worms and grubs. Raccoons will also target chickens, ducks and other fowl as a food source. During the winter raccoons will seek out warm dry places often under houses or buildings and they will use installation and ducting for warmth.
We offer services to remove skunks, raccoons, opossums and foxes causing damage to landscaping, homes, wineries, office buildings and out buildings. If these animals get under your home or building they can cause damage to the insulation, ducting and electrical wiring.
Skunks dig for worms, bugs and grubs anywhere they can find them. The evidence they leave is very similar to that of a raccoon but on a smaller scale. During their breeding season is when it is most evident that skunks have established them selves in the area. The males are very active out looking for females and fighting with other males, while fighting the males will spray. This often occurs near where a female skunk has established a den site, often under homes or buildings. When building a den site skunks will use installation and ducting for warmth.
Foxes generally only cause problems to homes or building during their denning season. As they set up den sites to raise their young. Foxes like all wild animals have fleas and a den site flea numbers can be extremely high. Foxes will also target chickens, ducks and other fowl as a food source.
Opossums cause a majority of their damage during the winter months which coincides with their breeding season. They look for warm and dry areas for a den through the winter and that is often under homes or other buildings. When building a suitable den, the opossums will destroy installation and ducting for the warmth it provides.
In addition to taking care of the problem at hand we also do exclusionary work to not only seal up how the animals were getting under the building but also to secure it in order to prevent future animals from getting under the building for as long as possible.
