With the holiday season upon us, it’s a time of much joy and giving. Unfortunately, it’s also a time in which criminals take advantage of people. Keeping your home safe and protected from burglary is important to you. That’s why you lock your doors and windows, install security systems, and use the latest technology to keep your home safe and sealed. But there is another kind of robbery you might not suspect or be aware of. Pests are opportunists and take any opportunity to thieve and plunder as well. As it gets cold outside, pests are more desperate for protection, warmth and your resources. They will stop at nothing to get these things. Raccoons are the most tricky robbers out there. You need to be prepared and ready to fight back!
What raccoons steal
Raccoons will take whatever they can get their hands on that will serve a purpose. First of all, food. They need to eat too. They love dog and cat food. If you notice Fido or Fluffy’s food dish rapidly emptying faster than normal, there could be a reason for that. Raccoons also love trash and getting into your dumpsters. Finding a mess outside your trash bins could mean you have furry robbers. If you’re finding all your lovely garden crops filtered, this animal could be your culprit.
