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.
Taylorsville Raccoon Removal
Raccoon removal from attics should only be attempted by professionals. Raccoon removal can be more difficult than you think. 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. 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
The traps are placed in areas that raccoons 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.
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 the entry holes
We will find any entry points that raccoons or other wildlife may use to get into your home and seal them all. 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. Most commercial pest control companies use poisons which are a big concern for children and pets. Raccoons will track the poison inside your home creating a safety hazard for you and your family. In addition to this, you’ll have dead raccoons inside your home which will cause a horrendous stench that will take weeks to get rid of.
AAAC Wildlife Removal specializes in the humane removal and control 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 sold in the market never work in any meaningful way. These products claim to repel raccoons from your home. 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
Raccoons usually leave signs of their presence behind after they have moved into your attic. 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.
Damage to your home’s exterior
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. 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. 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.
Trash strewn around the yard
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. You should seal your trash cans to stop raccoons from rummaging through them.

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
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.
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.
