Crazy Things Raccoons Do [Manatee County]

Unprovoked Raccoon Attacks, Bites, 13-Year Old Girl

June 5, 2017

Here is the scenario. It could have been the most normal father and daughter stroll around the neighborhood, but it became an emergency room visit. The reason was that a raccoon came out of the bushes and bit a little girl on the leg–totally unprovoked!

It was described that in late May evening around 5:45 a father and 13 year old daughter were walking and talking together near the entrance of their neighborhood subdivision around the Cape Coral, FL area. The daughter was said to be less than 5 feet in front of the father when she heard a growling noise from the bushes, followed by a raccoon coming at her that immediately bit on to her leg. When she screamed, the raccoon finally let go.

By the way, if you see raccoons around your property, or think you have them present in your home, please contact a professional! You can click to contact us here 24/7 at Nuisance Wildlife Removal, Inc. or call 1-866-263-WILD or 729-2103. 

It was thought that either the raccoon was rabid or trying to protect her babies. The animal caused the girls shin to bleed and the father immediately took her to the hospital for treatment. According to the Center for Disease Control, when a human is bitten by an animal, at first there may not be any symptoms. But weeks, or even months after a bite, rabies can cause pain, fatigue, headaches, fever, and irritability. These are followed by seizures, hallucinations, and paralysis. Human rabies are almost always fatal.

Are all raccoons really bad?

A group of raccoons looking innocent.

No they are not, however they can be quite menacing and naughty. It has to do with their true nature because this is how they were created, in order to survive and adapt to different surroundings. The reason why a lot of folks think they are bad is due to the amount of damage and trouble they can cause. They can break, destroy and bring major disorder into your home and life. How can they do this? Raccoons are very adaptable and have many different abilities.  They will make every attempt to gain entry into your home, whether it is through an opening in a soffit, vent, or even chewing through a rotten area on your roof.

Is there a free raccoon removal service available in Manatee County?


If a raccoon has already settled in your attic or chimney, you could expect a more costly expenditure than what a free raccoon removal service would offer.  Why is that? First of all, if the work requires risks, then only an expert should be able to do this, and there would be a cost associated with that. [THE WORK REQUIRES RISKS] Secondly, does the service provided involve long work? Would it require an overnight process as well as return visits? That would mean more expensive work as it would be rather time consuming.  [TO TRAP REPEATED ANIMALS AND SEAL ALL THE ENTRY POINTS WOULD REQUIRE RETURN VISITS]

A raccoon that is not shy. Please note – don’t ever back one of these animals into a corner.

Thirdly, how is the raccoon?

Each raccoon is unique and one must never guess as to any raccoon’s temperament. Some raccoons are not shy at all, if that is the case, you should definitely NOT corner them. If by chance you are facing a mother raccoon, or a sick raccoon, that is particularly dangerous and so therefore, would certainly not be  a free raccoon removal in Manatee County.  Nuisance Wildlife removal, Inc. provides a professional raccoon removal service in Manatee and other surrounding areas, and we would like to hear about your particular situation and be your trusted expert.

Now that you understand the modus operandi of raccoons, you can understand that these are wild animals looking to survive and pro-create and will do whatever they require, in order to be sure nature has her way. So therefore, in order to get rid of them, this is a professional service that merits a cost. Therefore there is not a free raccoon removal in Manatee County. Please call a licensed wildlife removal professional to assist you with the protection of your home and your property today.

Raccoon Removal Service Tampa

Raccoon Removal Service Tampa

One of the most challenging jobs that we deal with as a nuisance wildlife control professional, is the unthinkable… Raccoons in the attic, yes you read that right, raccoons in the attic! Let me assure you, that this is not an easy thing to take care of! It is definitely not something that you would want to attempt yourself. One of the main reasons would be, that that there are almost ALWAYS baby raccoons in the attic, along with an adult female. The young are generally helpless and in a small, tight, hard to access area of the attic, and can not be trapped. They must be removed by hand which means that you have to go in to the attic and face the mother raccoon that is up there protecting her babies! I’m sure you can imagine that this would not be a good scene for the average homeowner, she will be overly protective and aggressive, you should definitely leave this task to a professional. Nuisance Wildlife Removal, Inc. is your trusted professional to call for any raccoon removal service you might need in Tampa, Lakewood Ranch  and other surrounding areas. When a certified and licensed professional is hired, then the babies can be removed, the mother trapped and all can be reunited/relocated together and no one gets hurt in the process.

Here is the general process of “evicting” a mother raccoon and her babies:

Step One: Complete inspection of the exterior will be done to determine the entry point (generally a roof line that soffit has been pushed up or an open soffit vent). If it is an accessible area a trap will be placed on the roof and secured to catch her upon exit.

Step Two: The certified wildlife technician will go into the attic to inspect and locate the nesting site, of course using extreme caution as the mother raccoon will most likely be in there protecting her young. Generally she will get spooked and head towards the entry/exit point, which is what we hope for. If she does, then she will be caught in the trap that was placed on the exterior. If not she may have to be removed with a control pole or just left to exit on her own and trapped when doing so. Once the nest has been located the babies will be removed by hand using heavy duty leather gloves and placed into a small transport trap. On occasion we may have to use the babies to attract the mother raccoon out, by placing them by the trap on the exterior, each situation varies and is handled accordingly. This same method would hold true if she was not in the attic at the time of removal. We also use a predator scent when evicting raccoons from an attic, as this is generally used when the babies cannot be located or they are in an area that is not humanely possible for us to access. The scent is an all natural scent that is disbursed throughout the attic and makes the mother raccoon think that there is something in the attic that would harm her, or her young at which point she will actually remove all the babies from the attic to a safer nesting area.

Step Three: After all of the raccoons have been removed from the attic, it is imperative that the openings on the exterior get closed up. This again is something that a professional should do, making sure it is done in a manor,  that the animals will not be able to penetrate it again. Not only to keep other raccoons out, but also to prevent other animals from entering. The raccoons that were living in the attic, left behind their scent/odors, and in many cases that is an attractant to other wildlife. Not to mention the various droppings and other matter that they leave behind, which often must be cleaned up so your home is once again a safe, healthy living environment.
