Raccoons In The Attic
From disease to property damage, and even attacks on pets, raccoons cause problems. These wildlife problems can include the following:
- Disease — Raccoons can carry multiple diseases, but perhaps the most dangerous of these is rabies. While they may not attack humans often, it certainly is not worth the risk. These pests may also have roundworms, which can infect pets and humans when inhaled. The presence of raccoons in your attic spaces can build up feces which can lead to infection if you are not careful. We clean these spaces and offer insulation replacement services to ensure your family can breathe easy again.
- Property Damage — Raccoons have the tendency to tear into homes and attics in search of food. They may also burrow into dark areas in and around your home to create nesting areas. Furthermore, if any urine or feces should get into your home, that damage could be much more than an annoyance.
- Pet Attacks — Raccoons will usually run from large animals, but if they are cornered, they will not hesitate to attack. They have an easy time killing small dogs and cats and have been known to seriously injure larger dogs.

Nuisance Raccoons in Homes
Raccoons are an animal that is incredibly adaptable, especially in suburban and urban areas. They are one of the animals that removal experts deal with most often because of this adaptability. The presence of raccoons, in general, is not necessarily the issue because simple steps can be taken to limit their effects on property. The major issue arises is when they get in a home or other building.
These animals normally make their way into a building in order to find shelter, birth their young, or to find food. They will take advantage of trash cans, pet food left out, and that garden that you have worked hard to plant and cultivate. These animals carry canine distemper and are also the number one carrier of rabies. This makes it necessary to trap and remove these animals as soon as possible.
The Damage Raccoons Cause
First and foremost, raccoons can cause major physical damage to a structure. They are going to enter into a structure and make it the way that they want it. They will destroy and flatten insulation, remove shingles, and remove siding, chimney caps, and mushroom caps in order to get in where they want.
Also, their urine and feces can do major damage as well. Their droppings can have parasites such as raccoon roundworm. The droppings and urine are to be considered biohazardous materials and this will require disinfecting in order to get rid of.
Early springtime is most likely to be the time in which they enter into a structure. It is normally the females that will enter because they are looking for safe places in which to birth their young.
Raccoon Removal With Humane Trapping
If raccoons are found inside, you will need a professional to trap, remove, and exclude them from the structure. This process requires the animals to be physically removed, the entry points in which they entered from to be sealed, and the mess they made to be cleaned up.
If they are found to be around a property, there are successful ways in which to modify the habitat to make sure that their food sources are limited. The use of lockable metal trash cans, bringing in pet food, and electric fences around gardens will limit their food sources and their reasons for coming onto the property.
