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. In addition to this, these little critters will also drag whatever they find into their den which includes wood, dirt, and even outdoor garbage.
South Jordan Raccoon Removal
Removing raccoons from attics is a task that should be done by qualified 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 to carry rabies, canine distemper, and raccoon roundworm. 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. 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
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
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 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. Our special enzyme cleaner kills any bacteria or mold spores in 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
Once cleaning is complete, we will repair all damage caused by the infestation both inside and outside of your property. These include: ripped shingles, chewed through wood and siding, etc. 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 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 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 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. You can repel raccoons by making sure they are not attracted to your home.
Raccoon Infestation Signs
After they move into your attic, raccoons often leave evidence of their presence. 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 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
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.
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.

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. 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.
Attic Clean up and Re-insulation
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. 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. 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 can also replace insulation that has been damaged so badly that it needs to be replaced completely.
We will seal any holes found behind panels that have been chewed by raccoons and then disinfect the area. If there are gaps that allow wildlife to pass through, they will be sealed and covered.
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.
