How to Get Rid of Raccoons Living Near My Home

Raccoons living near your home in Toronto are a cause for concern even if they are not in your yard or in your house.

Why are Raccoons Destroying My Lawn?

Raccoons live just about everywhere, from the East Coast all the way to California. These animals are nocturnal feeders that feed on your sweet corn, though they also feed on fruit trees, potatoes, peas and grubs. Wild raccoons cause many problems not only to people, but also to the environment as well. Even though they prefer areas with trees and a water source, more and more of them are raiding gardens since gardens are an easy source of food. Raccoons in a yard are capable of turning the entire landscape upside down. A family of raccoons will wreak havoc on your garden as they forage and strip plants of everything good for eating.
