Racoon in the attic in Shepherdsville

Raccoon in the Attic

Raccoons are attracted to attics because it provides a dry, warm, and safe place for them to 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. These little creatures will also bring whatever they find to their den, including wood, dirt, and outdoor garbage.

Shepherdsville 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. 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. 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 humane and safe methods to remove raccoons from your home or property. This is our procedure for removing raccoons from your home or property.

  • 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 can be baited using sweets like marshmallows or wet cats food.

Remove the raccoon

Once the raccoon is captured, we’ll remove them so that they aren’t able to return to your property.

Make your home less attractive to wild animals

After removing the animal, we’ll make your home less attractive to raccoons and other wildlife by removing all possible food and water sources.

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

Once cleaning is complete, we will repair all damage caused by the infestation both inside and outside of your property. 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

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 use safe methods to remove raccoons from your property. Our technicians are professionals who know how to trap, bait, and remove these animals safely. 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 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. 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 will also seep through the ceiling and cause serious damage to insulation, sheetrock, or even wooden beams.

Exterior damage to your home

Raccoons love to find a warm and cozy place to 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 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

As they crawl around in your attic, crawl spaces, and chimneys, raccoons create a lot of noises. 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.

Tipped over garbage cans

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?

Strange behavior in pets

Pets like cats and dogs will act strangely if they sense that raccoons have invaded your home. 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

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.

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. 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

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 can also replace insulation that has been damaged so badly that it needs to be replaced completely.

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.
