Racoon in the attic in Saint Matthews

Raccoon in the Attic

Raccoons are attracted to attics because it provides a dry, warm, and safe place for them to 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. In addition to this, these little critters will also drag whatever they find into their den which includes wood, dirt, and even outdoor garbage.

Saint Matthews Raccoon Removal

Raccoon removal from attics should only be attempted by professionals. Raccoon removal can be more difficult than you think. 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. Not only that but they may also carry parasites like fleas, ticks, and lice which can cause severe skin irritations.

Our Raccoon Removal Process

We use safe and humane methods to get rid of raccoons in your home. 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

We’ll clean your attic of all raccoon waste and debris to prevent the spread of parasites and diseases. 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’ll also replace insulation or roofing that is damaged, torn, or has been ripped apart.

Wildlife Removal and Pest Control

It is not a good idea to use poisons or chemicals to rid raccoons of your home, especially if there are pets or children. Pest control companies often use poisons that pose a danger to pets and children. Raccoons can track poison in your home, creating a safety risk 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 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. 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

Droppings that leave an unpleasant odor

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. 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

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.

Tipped over garbage cans

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.

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

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?

Strange behavior in pets

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

Attic restoration starts when it is established that there are no other animals present in the attic. Droppings are the first thing we’ll clean up and sanitize as they can 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.

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. If there are gaps that allow wildlife to pass through, they will be sealed and covered.

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.
