The population of raccoons throughout the United States is on the rise, which indicates more raccoons will be looking for shelter in homes or businesses. Naturally, raccoons den in existing shelters like hollow trees, ground burrows, and muskrat houses, but with habitat loss, spaces like attics, crawlspaces, and chimneys are becoming more prevalent. These clever creatures are excellent climbers and intelligent problem solvers, making raccoon removal a daunting task for a property owner.

How to Get Rid of Raccoons

Critter Control specializes in raccoon removal. In order to remove and control a raccoon or family of raccoons on your property, our wildlife specialist will perform a thorough inspection to ascertain the severity of the raccoon infestation. After the inspection, they will build a custom solution to trap, remove, and seal all entry points. They will also provide warranty options as well as an estimate for preventative services.

Raccoon Inspection

The Wildlife Service Technician will look for signs such as footprints on, in, or around your home, large openings leading to the attic or crawl space, and raccoon poop.

Raccoon Trapping & Removing

Live trapping is the most effective and humane way to remove a raccoon. Direct capture is not commonly used because raccoons are a rabies vector species. If legal, a healthy trapped raccoon will be relocated with written permission. When babies are removed from an attic, our wildlife specialists seek help from a local wildlife rehabilitation center.

Exclusion and Habitat Modification

Preventative exclusion services are the most effective means to prevent a raccoon from entering your home. After raccoon removal, it is imperative to seal all entry points to prevent future entry. Ensuring you don’t create a home for raccoons outside your property will also help prevent attracting raccoons. However, habitat modification will become very important for prevention after dealing with a raccoon invasion. Frightening devices only temporarily work, and there are no toxicants regulated for raccoons.

We had discovered a raccoon family in our outdoor courtyard. Traps were placed and three raccoons removed - the number I had seen. They were prompt and efficient in getting the work done and I appreciate their help.

We had flying squirrels in our attic and the technician Chris could not have been more helpful or professional. He always texted letting us know when he would be arriving and was right on time. He dealt with our problem efficiently, identified the probably point of entry and sealed it off. We did need him to return for a mice issue, again in the attic and he responded quickly. Very pleased with his service and the way it was handled.
