Raccoons in Florence attics and yards can cause lasting damage to your property

Raccoon in the Attic

Raccoons love attics because they are a dry, warm, and secure place where the raccoons can 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. These little creatures will also bring whatever they find to their den, including wood, dirt, and outdoor garbage.

Florence Raccoon Removal

Raccoon removal from attics should only be attempted by 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.

The 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

Setting traps

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

We will capture the raccoon and remove them from your property ensuring they can no longer return.

Reduce the appeal of your home to wild animals

We will remove the animal from your home and make it less appealing to other wildlife.

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. Special mesh netting is used to seal holes and prevent animals from entering.

Clean up the attic

We’ll clean your attic of all raccoon waste and debris to prevent the spread of parasites and diseases. 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’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 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 will remove raccoons safely from your property. Our technicians are professionals who know how to trap, bait, and remove these animals safely. 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. 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.

Signs of Raccoon Infestation

After they move into your attic, raccoons often leave evidence of their presence. 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

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.

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

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.

Tipped over garbage cans

The raccoon is a nocturnal animal and mostly scavenge 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. You should seal your trash cans to stop raccoons from rummaging through them.

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. 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?

Strange behavior in pets

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. We will first clean up any droppings and do disinfection as they could contain the infectious raccoon roundworm.

Insulation will most likely need to be replaced, even if it has not been 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. 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

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 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.
