Florida homeowners are always facing problems with raccoons year round. Other than rummaging your trash, pooping in your pool and making a lot of mess, raccoons are also known to bite and scratch people when disturbed. Despite causing these troubles, you can have them removed from your home or pool area in a humane way.
Fall is the best time to get rid of raccoons to avoid separating the young from their parents, otherwise the little ones would starve to death and their mother would wreak havoc in and around your home in their search for their young.
For many homeowners, the back yard is a sanctuary to come to relax and enjoy the wonders of nature. This peace is disturbed when possums get in the area, and they forage around and potentially destroy the plants and flowers you worked so hard to grow. Remove these opossums from the equation before it’s too late.
Identify the Problem
Identifying an opossum problem should be your first priority. These creatures enjoy areas near tree crevices, wooded areas, underneath decks, and brush piles. After rummaging through your garden for nesting sites or food, there will be some tell-tale signs left behind. Look for droppings, overturned garbage cans, and tracks. Opossum poop is sort of identical to dog poop, only it tends to have tapered ends and is sually a little smoother.
