RACCOONS DIGGING UP YARD
Raccoons are nocturnal animals so they are active at night while you are asleep. This makes them far less visible and it makes it easier for them to find food. During the night they forage for food and suburban yards here in Milford are great places to forage. These cute creatures need food and they are willing to look for it. Your yard is filled with grubs and insects that live under the top layer of soil. Raccoons will dig for them, making a mess of your yard in the process. They will use their hands to rip up sod and pull up the grass layer. Don’t let these pests destroy your yard. Call NCS Wildlife Solutions today.
HOW TO TELL IF RACCOONS IN YARD
They can be noisy, tearing into trash cans and leaving a mess around them. You may even hear them get into the trash during the night. The true signs will be in the lawn. Skunks will leave 3-4 inch holes, Armadillo will leave divots, some up to 5 inches wide, moles will not dig, they will push dirt from underneath. Raccoons will dig holes and rip up grass while searching for the grubs and insects to eat. You may not be able to tell what critter is making the mess, but our team can identify what animals you are dealing with then we can assess the yard and begin the trapping.
