Houston Raccoon Removal & Control

Many people are unaware that raccoons thrive in urban and suburban areas. They are much more common in cities than they are out in the forest. They steal pet food, they knock over garbage cans, they raid dumpsters, and people even feed them. They are very curious, intelligent, and strong, and they are generally fearless. They will break apart or break into anything they want. They often rip open holes in a roof or eave in order to live inside an attic. Female raccoons often break into an attic in order to have a safe place to raise young. They cause quite a bit of damage, and can also cause health risks. Raccoons also like chimneys. They often break into screened in pool areas, or even enter pet doors if they smell food inside. We like raccoons, so we remove them humanely,
