Kansas City pest control

We are Missouri's top experts in wildlife and raccoon control. We are not a typical Kansas City 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.

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 Kansas City pest control, we focus on complete and permanent solutions, by following these steps:

  • 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

Kansas City Raccoon Control Tip: Can raccoons open doors or windows
Is it possible for raccoons to open doors and windows? Raccoons are intelligent animals that easily adapt to the areas they live in. Some experiments have been conducted by scientists to determine how intelligent these creatures are, and they turned out to be very intelligent, even smarter than dogs. Throughout existence, raccoons have been surviving through their intelligence. Their intelligence basically makes them outsmart us, humans. They get into our attics without our knowledge, open the lid of tightly covered waste bins, and carry out many other impressive feats that other pests are incapable of. 

Raccoons are also very mischievous and curious, looking for opportunities to find food. This natural trait has helped them survive for many years. They can break into places that they shouldn't break into, and they can locate things that are well hidden. They can honestly be tamed, but the problem is that they can't remain tamed. In some states, it is actually legal to have raccoons as pets.

Raccoons have learned to coexist with humans by living in inaccessible areas and eating foods that are considered waste. This form of evolution is a result of modernization. Raccoons in urban areas can knock over garbage cans so they can feed on the food in them.

They could also open doors and windows, but not entirely on their own. They are not smart enough to pick locks or perform other feats like that. Instead, they open doors and windows by reaching for the door or window knobs and then fiddle with it for some time until the door or window opens, and then they go in. Also, a raccoon can dig through a door or window to let itself in. The raccoon can also pass through a door or window if it has been damaged already. Since they fit into holes that are twice as small as their body, it is pretty easy for them to pass through any available hole in your door or window. If the hole is too small, a raccoon can use its sharp claws to make the hole wide enough for it to pass through. Raccoons can also tear up a protective screen with their sharp claws. And if a door is left open, a raccoon can easily slip into the house. Rural raccoons cannot do this because they have less contact with humans and less exposure to modernization. 

Also, raccoons in urban areas are more resolute and persistent. If a raccoon in an urban area is having difficulties accessing something it really wants, it will go to any lengths to get it, spending hours trying to until it gets it; urban raccoons simply don't know when to give up. Unlike the urban raccoons, a rural raccoon would give up on getting something that is barely accessible to it. 

Raccoons are indeed intelligent creatures, and if you have to get rid of them or prevent them from gaining access to your property, then you have to match up to their skills. No barrier is too difficult for them, so you need to go the extra mile when dealing with them. 

Measures to prevent raccoons from accessing your property
  • Block off all potentials entries the raccoons could use to get into your property. You can hire a professional to inspect your house for such entry points.
  • Seal your garbage cans tightly; a raccoon can easily knock off garbage cans if the lids on them are not tight and your property gets littered as a result. It is preferable that you use garbage cans with locks that come with handles or clamps.
  • Take your pet food or any other food leftovers inside once done. The leftover food attracts raccoons and can cause frequent visits and probably an infestation. 
  • Cut off tree branches that extend over the roof of your house to prevent roof access. Also, reduce the number of potential hiding places that raccoons could nest in. 
  • Properly cover your house's chimney. 
  • Always lock your doors and windows when not in use. 
Raccoons are carriers of diseases and can actually be aggressive when cornered. So it is advisable to allow a professional to deal with your raccoon problem if you have one.
