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.

Cottonwood Heights 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. 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.

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

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 also works as an air freshener to get rid of any foul odors that may have been left behind by the 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. Most commercial pest control companies use poisons which are a big concern for children and pets. 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 specializes in the humane removal and control 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 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.

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.

Raccoon Infestation Signs

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

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 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. These sounds can be heard through the floorboards or ceiling and is an obvious sign that you have an infestation on your hands. 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

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

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.

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. 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?

Pets acting strangely

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. 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. 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. 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 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.
