Racoon in the attic in Fort Knox

Raccoon in the Attic

Raccoons love attics because they are a dry, warm, and secure place where the raccoons can have their young. During the day raccoons remain in their dens until nightfall where they roam around your house looking for food scraps or other things that can help them survive. These little creatures will also bring whatever they find to their den, including wood, dirt, and outdoor garbage.

Fort Knox Raccoon Removal

Removing raccoons from attics is a task that should be done by qualified professionals. Attempting to get rid of raccoons on your own can cause more harm than good. These critters will scratch, bite and urinate which can result in serious injuries or disease if they’re not handled properly.

Raccoons are known carriers of diseases such as rabies, raccoon roundworm, and canine distemper. 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

We set the traps in areas where the raccoons are known to frequent. The traps can be baited using sweets like marshmallows or wet cats 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 will find any entry points that raccoons or other wildlife may use to get into your home and seal them all. Special mesh netting is used to seal holes and prevent animals from entering.

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

Once cleaning is complete, we will repair all damage caused by the infestation both inside and outside of your property. These include: ripped shingles, chewed through wood and siding, etc. 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 will track the poison inside your home creating a safety hazard for you and your family. You’ll also have dead raccoons in your home, which can cause an unpleasant smell that will take several weeks to eliminate.

AAAC Wildlife Removal is a specialist in the humane control and removal of wild animals. We use safe methods to remove raccoons from your property. Our technicians are trained professionals who understand how to properly trap, bait and remove these animals without causing any harm. The raccoon removal process includes setting traps in the attic. This allows us to get rid of the animal without having to touch it or use any harmful chemicals behind.

Raccoon Repellents

Raccoon repellents sold in the market never work in any meaningful way. These products claim to repel raccoons from your home. However, most of these products have very limited effects on raccoons as the animals can simply adapt to the noises and smells.

They can even cause harm to pets and humans. You can repel raccoons by making sure they are not attracted to your home.

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

The droppings and urine of raccoons eventually decay and leave a foul stench which can permeate throughout your home. Stains and urine can seep through ceilings and cause severe damage to insulation, sheetrock, and wooden beams.

Damage to your home’s exterior

Raccoons like nothing better than finding a nice warm place in which they can live. In order to find this, they will tear apart anything that gets in their way including roofing shingles or vents for instance! It is possible that you might see holes or tears around your house if there are any raccoons living inside. 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

As they crawl around in your attic, crawl spaces, and chimneys, raccoons create a lot of noises. This is a sign you have an infestation. Before these creatures cause permanent damage to your home, it is important to get professional assistance from wildlife experts immediately.

Trash strewn around the yard

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. If a raccoon has made its way into your property you should make sure that your trash bins are sealed shut so that these animals cannot get in.

Raccoon tracks

Raccoons are nocturnal animals that feed at night. Raccoons love to dig through garbage cans and dumpsters looking for food scraps and other items that they can eat. If a raccoon has made its way into your property you should make sure that your trash bins are sealed shut so that these animals cannot get in.

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

Missing pet food

Pet owners should always be wary of raccoons because this animal is attracted to anything edible including dog or cat food left outside 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. These animals can feel when there is an infestation of wildlife nearby and this causes them to become more alert, anxious, or even aggressive in some cases.

Attic Clean up and Re-insulation

Attic restoration starts when it is established that there are no other animals present in the attic. We will first clean up any droppings and do disinfection as they could contain the infectious raccoon roundworm.

Insulation will most likely need to be replaced, even if it has not been damaged. It has been contaminated and a new layer should be put in its place after everything else has been taken care of.

To ensure that there are no harmful bacteria, we will clean out your attic from raccoon waste, debris, and nesting materials. Qualified professionals are the ones who should clean up raccoon waste as they can carry a variety of bacterias, including E.coli, hepatitis, salmonellosis, and hepatitis.

Wild Animal Damage Repair

After cleanup is complete, we will repair any damage done by the raccoons. This includes ripped siding on your house or shed, chewed through wood trim around doors and windows, 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.

If raccoons have damaged your vinyl siding, gutters, or downspouts or made them a source for water leakage onto the roofing structure, we will repair that as well.
