Raccoons are a common presence in urbanized areas. Properties that are located near bodies of water, forests, and woods, also commonly experience nuisance raccoon problems. Although raccoons are truly innocent and fascinating mammals, they pose several dangers and should be controlled in a safe and humane way. If you still think raccoons are not a threat, continue reading to learn the top 3 biggest dangers raccoons pose to society.
The first and most significant risk posed by a wild raccoon presence on your property is the risk of harming people, especially children. Raccoons are known carriers of several viruses and infectious diseases, including serious ones like Rabies, leptospirosis, Distemper, and raccoon roundworm, as well as less serious ones, like lice, fleas, ticks, and more. Although raccoons do not generally bite or attack, they will if they are provoked. For instance, young children who may stumble upon a baby raccoon in the yard that they think is abandoned, but in actuality, the mother raccoon is nearby and ready pounce if she feels her pup is in danger.
If you have a raccoon problem, you will need to take control by eliminating whatever it is that attracts them to your property. For example:
Only take the garbage cans out to the driveway on the morning of trash pickup day, do not leave pet food and other sources of food and water outside (bird baths, squirrel feeders, bird seed, pet food bowls, stored bags of pet food, etc.), installing motion lighting or sound machines to scare raccoons away, putting up fencing to protect your gardens, and eliminating shelter options like compost piles, log piles, pet houses, and more. You will also need to contact a licensed raccoon removal and control company to inspect your property and ensure there are no entry points for raccoons to enter.

How to Remove Squirrels From the Home
Raccoon Reproduction Months
Aww... they are so adorable, until they invade your home and become a nuisance. Squirrels may appear cute but if they see your home as a good nesting site, they could become real pests. If this wasn't enough to make you wary, they also transmit diseases.
Why are they Pests?
Why are squirrels a bother? Here is why:
· They cause structural Damage
Squirrel's need space to nest, so a cozy section in an air vent is a great area to start their family. Any wiring that hinders them is chewed off. These bare wires can easily trigger fires, which may not be detected until it is too late. These rodents can also walk on power lines to get into your house, damaging those lines in the process.
· They Destroy Plants
Squirrels frequently dig up lawns while searching for nuts. Your veggie garden or fruit tree will not be spared either. They will eat any planted bulb and will not hold back from feasting on planted seeds.
Squirrels are also known to sneak into houses and feast on anything that smells appealing. A hungry squirrel's sharp teeth can easily rip through a plastic jar of maple syrup or nuts, especially if there is a family to be fed.
The babies are very delicate so it is best to call an expert to remove them. Make sure that you employ someone that is experienced in evicting squirrels and use humane methods to get the job done.
Anyone who has ever had to deal with a squirrel understands that, behind that furry façade, there lies an opportunistic pest. They love to chomp on seeds, wires and will even uproot your prized petunias for fun.
Every little chitter that a squirrel makes is part of a larger scheme to make you think they are harmless, but steal from the bird feeder when your back is turned. Putting up a fence around your garden might seem to be a good idea but that will not be effective if they find a way to go over that fence.
That, though does not mean squirrels deserve a dreadful demise. There are humane and very easy tricks you may utilize to make sure that these rodents never trespass on your premises.

Houston has a rich and proud history of professional sports. With football being such an important part of life in Texas, the city of Houston boasts a rich tradition of professional football going back 50 years. With the loss of the Oilers in 1996 it was only a matter of time before pro football would be restored to the city and its loyal fans.
The first professional football team in Houston was the Houston Oilers. The team was started in 1959 by owner Bud Adams who was also a co-founder of the AFL. The Houston Oilers took part in the first ever AFL championship match and beat the then Los Angeles Chargers to claim the title. The oilers and their fans continued to enjoy many years of football in Houston before their owner decided to unceremoniously move the team to Tennessee in 1996 with the lure of a new state of the art stadium which they moved into in 1998. Despite huge public outcry against the move the owner decided to move the team anyway and pay millions to the city of Houston for damages for the loss of the team to the city. With football being such a huge part of Texas it would not be long before professional football would be returned to the city of Houston and their great and loyal fans. However, it was not easy to get a new team and many obstacles had to be overcome before the NFL would grant Houston with a new franchise.
Thanks to persistence and hard work professional football had been restored to Houston where it belongs. The new franchise would decide upon the name Houston Texans after receiving permission to use the name from Lamar Hunt who had previously founded the name Dallas Texans and which later would become the Kansas City Chiefs. With former Denver Bronco assistant Gary Kubiak now in place as the head coach and quarterback Matt Schaub signed, the Houston Texans hope to establish a winning tradition for years to come. Along with their loyal fans they are looking toward the new season as a breakthrough year.
