- Feeding raccoons will only increase the chance of home invasion, so we do not recommend leaving even pet food outside unattended.
- Property owners should employ simple methods of control, like securing trash bins with fitted lids and attaching latches that lock the lids in place.
- Raccoons normally flee upon approach, but rabid individuals display fearlessness regarding humans.
- Infected raccoons may also foam at the mouth and move about erratically while baring their teeth.
- However, not all infected individuals act strangely, so people must always use extreme caution around the animals.
- The only way to stay completely safe from raccoons is to enlist the help of certified professional removal teams like Critter Control of New Hampshire.
