We are New York's top experts in wildlife and raccoon control. We are not a typical Buffalo raccoon control or pest control company. We don't treat wild animals like insects, because they are not! You can't just use poison to get rid of them. You also can't just set a few traps on the ground and call it good. Each situation is unique. And remember, if you have raccoons living in your house, it is almost certainly a female with a litter of young inside. These juveniles must be removed by hand, or they will starve to death and die. And after they are gone, the entry holes into the house must be sealed with professional repairs. Unlike most Buffalo pest control, we focus on complete and permanent solutions, by following these steps:
- Inspect the entire house, ground to roof, and the attic
- Seal shut all entry areas with professional grade steel
- If in attic, we remove the baby raccoons by hand
- Technical and human raccoon trapping appropriate to situation
- When necessary, we clean raccoon droppings and replace insulation
Buffalo Raccoon Control Tip: The Legal Ramifications Of Raccoon Trapping
Dealing with pest animals is something that people in the United States have been doing for hundreds of years, and when it comes to raccoons, people have been hunting these creatures for their fur and meat for as long as records show. However, these days there are more restrictions that need to be considered when you are hunting and trapping raccoons, and these can come from a variety of sources. Local regulations can be set at a county or state level, while there are some laws that apply across the country when it comes to dealing with wild animals.
Restrictions On Using Lethal Traps Against Raccoons
One of the most common areas that will see nationwide restrictions is when it comes to using lethal traps to kill raccoons, and while not illegal it certainly is an area where there will be regulations in place. Ultimately, when it comes to using lethal traps, it is vital that they are set in a way that will minimize the chance of causing any collateral damage, such as harm to domestic pets or children. It is also very important that any lethal traps that are used are designed so that they will cause the minimum amount of pain and suffering for the animal while it kills the raccoon, otherwise it can deemed to cause unnecessary suffering to the animal.
Trapping A Raccoon In A Cage Trap Legally
The regulations around trapping raccoons in a live catch cage trap are usually the same in most areas, but it is in what you can do with the raccoon once you have trapped the animal that there tend to be local and regional variations. As long as you are monitoring the trap regularly and that the raccoon doesn't have to spend too much time in the trap before being removed, then most areas will be fine with the live trapping of a raccoon. If you are in a situation where you aren't likely to be present for a prolonged period, you may want to put a source of water in the trap as well, to ensure that you aren't causing unnecessary harm.
Transporting A Raccoon For Relocation
It is when we come to relocating a pest animal that the regulations and regional variations tend to see some significant differences, and this is certainly the case when it comes to the relocation of raccoons. In some areas, there aren't any regulations about what you have to do once you have trapped, while in others you may be limited in terms of where you can transport the animal to, or you may need a permit to transport the animal. Ultimately, if you are planning to relocate a raccoon, then it is important to check out the appropriate regulations in your area, and your local animal services department will usually have all of this information to hand.
Laws Relating To Where A Raccoon Can Be Released
Even if the laws around transporting a raccoon for relocation do allow you to do this in your state, there are also other regulations that can have an impact on what you can do with the raccoon once you have transported it. There are some laws that will allow you to release the raccoon in an area where it will not be a nuisance to others, while in other areas you may need the written permission of the landowner to release a raccoon. The most stringent areas will deem a raccoon to be a pest species, and in this case they will have to be humanely killed, so it is worth seeking advice on how to do this safely.
