Raccoon Rescue in Springfield, Virginia

Some days as a Connor’s employee are more exciting than others, as demonstrated by our team out in Springfield, who recently discovered baby raccoons in a house under renovation.  They were called out by the homeowners, who had been hearing noises coming from inside the walls and rightly assumed it was some sort of wildlife.  They made the right choice in calling for professionals because our team found raccoons in a wall void and had to use special wildlife gloves to handle the wild creatures.

Connor’s Pest Control is committed to the humane treatment and removal of wildlife, utilizing live traps and one-way doors to safely remove nuisance animals without harming them.  If you have a wildlife problem in your home, we can relocate the creatures and employ exclusion techniques to keep them from coming back.
