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. These little creatures will also bring whatever they find to their den, including wood, dirt, and outdoor garbage.

American Fork 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 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 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

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

Reduce the appeal of your home 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 the entry holes

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. Our special enzyme cleaner kills any bacteria or mold spores in 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. 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. 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. However, most of these products have very limited effects on raccoons as the animals can simply adapt to the noises and smells.

Some may even be harmful to humans and pets when used around the property. You can repel raccoons by making sure they are not attracted to your home.

Signs of Raccoon Infestation

Raccoons usually leave signs of their presence behind after they have moved into your attic. These signs 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

Raccoons leave urine and droppings that eventually decompose and create a foul stench that can permeate throughout your house. 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

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. 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. 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

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. 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.

Re-insulation and Clean Up of Attic

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.

Most of the time, insulation will need to be replaced even if it is not visibly damaged. After all other precautions have been taken, it should be replaced with a new layer.

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

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.

We will seal any holes found behind panels that have been chewed by raccoons and then disinfect 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.
