Racoon in the attic in Shelbyville

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.

Shelbyville 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 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.

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 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.

Reduce the appeal of your home 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

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 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. 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 never work in any meaningful way. 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.

Raccoon Infestation Signs

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 will also seep through the ceiling and cause serious damage to insulation, sheetrock, or even wooden beams.

Damage to your home’s exterior

Raccoons love to find a warm and cozy place to 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 be dangerous as well because insulation materials may have been tampered with potentially exposing wiring within walls and ceilings thus increasing the chances of fire hazard! Strange noises

Strange noises

Raccoons create lots of noises at night as they move around your attic, crawl spaces, and chimneys. This is a sign you have an infestation. It’s important to seek professional help from wildlife experts right away before these critters cause permanent damage to your house.

Tipped over garbage cans

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. 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. 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. So it’s best to keep pet food indoors and avoid feeding pets outdoors if your area is prone to raccoon infestation.

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.

Re-insulation and Clean Up of Attic

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.

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. 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.

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.
