Raccoon Control

Raccoon Control, Trapping & Removal Services

We can rid you of Raccoon problems safely and efficiently

Raccoons are difficult to ignore when they’re on your Dallas property, or worse yet, in your home. These nocturnal, lumbering creatures are notorious for tearing up landscapes (and garbage cans) and causing damage to attics with their waste and nesting habits. Female raccoons who are raising babies will often seek refuge in your Dallas area attic for a safe nesting space. Raccoon droppings are a breeding ground for parasites and diseases like raccoon roundworm, which can be transmitted to curious pets or your family. A raccoon that is out in the daytime is likely injured or rabid, so if a raccoon seems outgoing, please do not engage with it.

These small mammals are known for the distinct, black bandit-mask markings on their faces. Most raccoons weigh anywhere from 10 to 30 pounds and grow up to 3 feet long. Their bushy tails tend to add an additional foot to their total body length. Raccoons have dense, grayish-brown fur peppered with black and white, as well as a series of distinctive black rings on their tails.


Opportunistic and omnivorous, raccoons will eat just about anything they can get their hands on. Common meals include crayfish, frogs, turtles, fish, mice, insects, eggs, fruits, vegetables, nuts, and whatever they can scavenge from carrion and trash piles. They eagerly take advantage of vegetable gardens, unsecured garbage cans, pet food left outdoors, and even bird feeders.


Forests, marshes, prairies, and wooded areas near human habitations are ideal habitats for raccoons. The creatures prefer to live near a water source, such as a stream, lake, wetland area, or slow-moving river, but are highly adaptable and can learn to thrive in a variety of environments. They make dens in hollowed trees, rock crevices, and the abandoned dens of muskrats or similar animals. We most commonly remove raccoons from properties in GeorgiaTexasNorth CarolinaLouisiana, and South Carolina.

Wherever there are acceptable food sources, raccoons will set up denning sites. Residents may inadvertently invite raccoons into their yards by leaving pet food outdoors overnight or not sealing trash bins with lids. Though rare, they will venture inside through cat or dog doors if emboldened by the availability of food. Occasionally, raccoons make their dens beneath porches or inside unused attics.



When raccoons decide to den in attics, they can cause significant property damage. The animals tear up roof tiles and damage vents to gain entry. They establish latrine sites that can pose serious health risks if located on residential properties. In addition to rabies, raccoons spread diseases and parasites like raccoon roundworm, tularemia, giardia, salmonellosis, and leptospirosis. They also destroy home gardens, birdfeeders, and make messes of trash cans and garbage bins.



One of the most effective forms of raccoon control centers on keeping food sources to a minimum. In order to secure gardens, residents should run electrified wiring around the perimeter of fences, as raccoons are adept climbers and will not be stopped by regular fencing. Place large squirrel or raccoon baffles on the base of birdfeeders or frequently climbed trees, and secure garbage cans with tight-fitting or locking lids. To keep the creatures from gaining access to attics, trim back overhanging tree limbs and ensure all vents and windows are secured.



Raccoons are one of the most aggressive animals, and are known to carry several different types of diseases. For this reason, great care should be used in raccoon trapping and removal. Due to their cleverness, nocturnal behavior, and natural agility, raccoons resist removal attempts made by inexperienced property owners. As they can also carry diseases, it is dangerous to approach the animals. Contact the trained specialists at Trutech all your raccoon trapping, removal, and control needs.
