Santa Clarita California Raccoon Control Situation: WHAT ARE SOME WAYS TO KILL A RACCOON IN THE YARD?
Raccoons are bandit-faced, cute and twitchy-nosed creatures. They might look adorable on TV screen but when it comes to your place than seeing raccoons in your yard will get annoying as they can steal plenty of your stuff and can destroy it through their sharp teeth. They can also hide in your chimneys, shed, garbage cans and can also cause rabies (in rare cases). Then you will start looking for ways to get rid of them. By using following ways you can kill a raccoon in the yard or can simply get it out from your yard.
Using Trap -This is the most convenient way to kill or trap raccoon. There are many kinds of traps available such as lethal traps, body-gripping traps etc. In fact, this is the most convenient way to catch raccoons. Lethal traps are generally used by people who hunt them for fur. While using these traps, one has to set them properly otherwise, you will not be able to catch them and you can also injure yourself with incorrect traps.
Poison -The most popular and easiest way used by people is by giving them poison. While this method is most effective but sometimes it can create certain problems as well. When raccoon will have the poison then it will feel uncomfortable and will look for a place to hide. Sometimes, they hide on such places where it gets very difficult to find them and when they die that area gets the pungent smell. Even this pungent smell can attract other animals also. Therefore, it can be a big mess for you then.
Shoot a Raccoon -This way is only suitable if you are a very good marksman because it is very difficult to shoot raccoon as they are nocturnal. They don't sit in one place for a long time and they are very fast. So, if you missed your shot then it can damage your house property and if it got right then it will result in a lot of blood all around the place.
Carcass -Carcass should be the last option in your list because it will be better if you will have no or very less contact with carcass as raccoon may have diseases. Even garbage services also don't recommend this way.
Even though any of the above methods can be used to kill raccoon but it's always better to avoid raccoon at first so that you will not have to kill them. Do clean your trash cans time to time and always keep them covered. Do not throw any kind of food sources in the yard and always keep your yard neat and clean. By following these simple practices, you can easily avoid them and still if any raccoon managed to enter your place then live trapping will be the best option. It is a lot easier and the chance of disease spread is also very less in this method as raccoon will not be dead.
