About Raccoons

There are seven species of raccoon, but Procyon lotor is the most common species in America. These raccoons live in all types of environments, including forests, fields, and people’s yards.

Raccoons are not typically friendly animals. In fact, they cause significant damage to humans all the time.

Doing things like feeding raccoons can encourage them to frequent your property, so we advise against doing that. Unfortunately, though, even if you don’t feed them on purpose, raccoons may still find a way to eat available food on your property.

That’s why it’s essential to seal trash containers and remove any edible debris from around your property. Otherwise, you’ll find that raccoons have rummaged through your trash and scattered debris everywhere.

If you need help keeping raccoons off of your property, OMNIS has the solutions you need.

What To Do If You Find a Dead Raccoon

All animals die, and sometimes it happens on someone’s property. This is problematic because a dead raccoon will begin to rot within days. As this occurs, the raccoon carcasses will start to stink. The odor of a rotting raccoon alone is enough to convince most homeowners to call a dead raccoon removal service. 

That’s exactly what you should do, but if you aren’t convinced yet, there are other reasons why you shouldn’t allow a dead raccoon to rot on your property. For example, the odor of a dead raccoon may attract unwanted pests. These pests will likely begin eating the rotting corpse, potentially causing them to pick up various diseases. Those infectious diseases may then be spread to you, your pets, or your family.

Where Do You Find Dead Raccoons?

Dead raccoons are easy to identify, as the animals are known for their black-ringed tails and mask-like face. Raccoons usually die due to disease, accidents, trapping, and predator attacks. Though, the most likely cause of death in a residential neighborhood is a disease.

When a raccoon gets sick, it may seek shelter underneath a patio or inside your home. They do this because they want to avoid predators who may take advantage of them in their weakened state. Once a raccoon dies, you must have a professional come do the dead raccoon removal. Otherwise, you risk the spread of disease and obnoxious odors.

Should I Do Dead Raccoon Removal Myself?

You should never handle the body of a dead raccoon without proper training. A dead raccoon may still infect you with transmissible diseases, like rabies and roundworm. There are also other diseases that they will pass to you, so don’t put yourself at risk. Instead, call a qualified dead raccoon removal service, like OMNIS Pest Control.
