Raccoon in the Attic

Raccoons love attics because they are a dry, warm, and secure place where the raccoons can have their young. Raccoons spend the day in their dens and then wander around your yard looking for food scraps and other items that will help them survive. In addition to this, these little critters will also drag whatever they find into their den which includes wood, dirt, and even outdoor garbage.

Elizabethtown Raccoon Removal

Raccoon removal from attics should only be attempted by professionals. Attempting to get rid of raccoons on your own can cause more harm than good. If they aren’t handled correctly, these critters can cause serious injury by biting, scratching, and urinating.

Raccoons are known to carry rabies, canine distemper, and raccoon roundworm. They may also carry parasites such as ticks, fleas, and lice that can cause severe skin irritations.

The Raccoon Removal Process

We use humane and safe methods to remove raccoons from your home or property. Here’s our process for raccoon removal:

  • Set Traps
  • Remove Raccoon
  • Make home less attractive to wild animals
  • Seal entry holes
  • Clean attic
  • Repair any damage done

Setting traps

The traps are placed in areas that raccoons frequent. The traps are baited with sweets such as marshmallows or wet cat food.

Remove the raccoon

We will capture the raccoon and remove them from your property ensuring they can no longer return.

Make your home less attractive to wild animals

We will remove the animal from your home and make it less appealing to other wildlife.

Seal all entry points

We’ll find possible entry points where raccoons and other wildlife might be getting into your house and we’ll seal all of them off. We use special mesh netting to cover holes and keep animals from getting inside.

Clean up the attic

To prevent the spread of diseases and parasites, we will clean out and disinfect your attic. We use a special enzyme that kills off bacteria and mold spores that may have accumulated inside your attic. It can also be used to remove any unpleasant odors left behind by raccoons.

Repair wildlife damage

After the cleaning is done, we will fix any damage that was caused by the infestation. These include ripped shingles and chewed through sidings. We can also replace roofing or insulation that has been damaged, torn or ripped off.

Wildlife Removal and Pest Control

Using chemicals or poisons to get rid of raccoons is never a good idea, especially if you have pets or children around. Most commercial pest control companies use poisons which are a big concern for children and pets. Raccoons can track poison in your home, creating a safety risk for you and your family. In addition to this, you’ll have dead raccoons inside your home which will cause a horrendous stench that will take weeks to get rid of.

AAAC Wildlife Removal is a specialist in the humane control and removal of wild animals. We will remove raccoons safely from your property. Our technicians are trained professionals who understand how to properly trap, bait and remove these animals without causing any harm. Our raccoon removal process involves setting traps inside the attic, which allows us to remove a trapped animal without needing to come into contact with it or leave harmful chemicals behind.

Raccoon Repellents

Raccoon repellents sold in the market almost never work. There are a number of these products out there that are advertised as being able to keep raccoons away from your property. These products are unlikely to have any effect on raccoons, as they can adapt to the sounds and smells.

They can even cause harm to pets and humans. The best way to repel raccoons is to make sure they don’t have access to your house and that there isn’t anything attracting them to your property.

Signs of Raccoon Infestation

After they move into your attic, raccoons often leave evidence of their presence. These include:

  • Unpleasant smell of droppings
  • Damage to your home’s exterior
  • Strange noises
  • Tipped over garbage bins
  • Raccoon tracks
  • Missing pet food
  • Pets behaving strangely

Unpleasant smell of droppings

Raccoons leave urine and droppings that eventually decompose and create a foul stench that can permeate throughout your house. Stains and urine will also seep through the ceiling and cause serious damage to insulation, sheetrock, or even wooden beams.

Exterior damage to your home

Raccoons like nothing better than finding a nice warm place in which they can live. To find it, they will destroy anything in their path, including roof shingles and vents. If there are raccoons in your home, it is possible to see holes and tears. This could also be dangerous because insulation materials might have been altered, potentially exposing wiring in walls and ceilings. This can increase the risk of a fire hazard. Strange noises

Strange noises

Raccoons create lots of noises at night as they move around your attic, crawl spaces, and chimneys. These sounds can be heard through the floorboards or ceiling and is an obvious sign that you have an infestation on your hands. It’s important to seek professional help from wildlife experts right away before these critters cause permanent damage to your house.

Trash strewn around the yard

Raccoons are nocturnal animals that feed at night. These critters love to rummage through your garbage cans and dumpsters in search of food scraps or other things that they can eat. You should seal your trash cans to stop raccoons from rummaging through them.

Raccoon tracks

The raccoon is a nocturnal animal and mostly scavenge at night. Raccoons love to dig through garbage cans and dumpsters looking for food scraps and other items that they can eat. You should seal your trash cans to stop raccoons from rummaging through them.

Were you aware that Raccoons have very sensitive hands that almost act as a second set of eyes?

Missing pet food

Raccoons will eat any food, even cat or dog food, left out overnight. If your area is susceptible to raccoon infestation, it’s best to keep pet food indoors.

Did you know that Raccoons are omnivorous?

Pets acting strangely

If raccoons invade your home, pets like dogs and cats will behave strangely. This can cause animals to feel more anxious, and even aggressive if there is wildlife in their vicinity.

Attic Clean up and Re-insulation

When it is determined that no other animals are in the attic, attic restoration can begin. We will first clean up any droppings and do disinfection as they could contain the infectious raccoon roundworm.

Most of the time, insulation will need to be replaced even if it is not visibly damaged. It has been contaminated and a new layer should be put in its place after everything else has been taken care of.

We will clean up your attic of raccoon waste, debris, and nesting materials to make sure that no harmful bacteria are left behind. Clean-up should be done by qualified professionals because raccoon feces can cause a wide variety of problems like E. coli infection, hepatitis, and salmonellosis to name a few.

Wild Animal Damage Repair

Once clean-up is completed we’ll repair all damage caused by the raccoons such as ripped shingles or siding on your home or shed; chewed through wood trim around windows and doorways; etc. We also replace insulation that is damaged badly enough that it needs to be replaced entirely.

If we discover any holes in walls behind panels where raccoons have torn their way into the wall studs, we will seal them shut and sanitize the area. Furthermore, if there are any gaps large enough for wildlife to get through, these will be covered and sealed.

We will also fix any damage to the vinyl siding, gutters, and downspouts if raccoons have chewed through them or turned them into a source of water leakage onto your roofing structure.
