Raccoons are intelligent and skillful animals that can become a nuisance to many homes in Palm Beach, Boca Raton, Fort Lauderdale, and other areas in South Florida. Despite being cute, raccoons can carry an arsenal of zoonotic diseases, which can be transmitted from animals to people or, more specifically, a disease that normally exists in animals but that can infect humans. Which, in turn, makes them very dangerous to you and your pets.
Unfortunately, raccoons are persistent, so intimidation tactics do not normally work with them; they just return the next available time. To make matters worse, they are nocturnal creatures who break into your trash to steal food at night. Therefore, it is important to control these pests before the problem gets out of control.
