Where in Southern Ontario are Raccoon’s the most problematic
Raccoons in Ancaster
AnyPest commonly finds raccoons in attics near houses that are near parks or golf courses, and it isn’t just Oakville where racoon removal is one of our busiest services. In Ancaster, for example, we’ll find homes with Raccoons near Spring Valley Arena, or the Hamilton Golf and Country Club. My Dad who lives on Jerseyville Road, gave up growing Corn decades ago in his garden due to all the all the Raccoons who wandered up at night from Spring Valley. He tried every deterrent possible, from playing talk radio, spreading dog fur around and setting up motion detector sprinklers. In the end, he just had to give up growing corn as it was too much of a delicious draw for these pesky critters.
Dundas Raccoon Problems
Many lawns have been ruined by Raccoons who wander up from the Dundas Valley at night to dig for grubs that are hidden below your grass. In Hamilton, on the mountain, areas near Chedoke Golf course or along the Bruce Trail are quite common for Raccoons. My nephew who goes to Mohawk College, rents a room from a house on Upper Paradise. He had a raccoon living in the attic in the house, who would pop into his room and steal any junk food he left about.
Hamilton Raccoon Activity
Westdale, has older homes that Raccoons like to climb into as they journey up from Cootes Paradise through the McMaster Campus where there are treats abound. Surveys around the Mount Nemo Conservation area also prone to Raccoons. My Aunt lives near Mount Nemo and her cats are entertained for hours a week from the Raccoons who come up from the Conservation area to taunt the cats from outside the window. Raccoons are a problem near the Hamilton Mountain as well. Particularity near the Bruce Trail or Chedoke Golf Course where there is lots of food for them to eat.
Raccoons in Burlington
Burlington homes near the Royal Botanical Gardens or Bronte Creek Provincial Park are hot spots for Raccoon activity. We get a lot of calls for Raccoon removal, particularly in older neighbourhoods that run along Lakeshore Road. Here’s an image of a chimney cover we used recently in Burlington. The Raccoon had babies in the attic, and we used this trap to safely remove the babies and mother without causing any harm.
Racoon Control & Areas where Raccoon Activity is on the Rise
Binbrook’s Raccoon Population
Binbrook is seeing a lot of residential construction in the past few years. There are a lot of wildlife spots where Raccoons can seek shelter during the day, until they covertly act at night. As there is a lot of birds in and around Binbrook, may residential areas will feed the birds during the winter, however, this bird feed is delicious to Raccoons. Raccoons are notorious for tipping over garbage cans in Binbrook. You’ll find a lot of raccoon activity around Scenic Woods Golf and Country Club as well as the Binbrook Conservation area. Raccoons with Distemper have also been spotted so be careful if you leave your pets out at night.
Grimsby Raccoon Activity
Raccoons love to eat fish, and other aquatic creatures. With Grimsby running along lake Ontario, there are lots of opportunities for raccoons to fish for their meals. Balls Falls by Jordan Ontario which is next to Grimsby is another area where Raccoons like to visit from as well as the Fifty Point Conservation area which is nearby in Stoney Creek.
Raccoons in Toronto?
Toronto surprisingly sees a lot of Raccoon activity, as Raccoons have become accustomed to living in the city, and there’s an ample food supply for them in this high density population area. A lot of old Toronto homes have old chimneys that Raccoons can easily access to climb into your house.
Distemper: a highly contagious viral disease that has recently broken out in the raccoon population of Ontario. It can easily spread to your house pets.
