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.

By following your techs advice, I was able to locate the exact point of entry next to the outside fireplace enclosure as shown in picture #1. I have reconfigured the bottom of the chimney and filled all openings with steel wool and silicone. Problem solved!
Always punctual and thorough.
Critter control staff, especially Chris and Terry, are "top notch" and the consummate professionals.
Chris was so professional! Thus far after a few weeks we have not had any critter activity, so whatever treatment Critter Control used was effective. Although it can be a bit costly to have a professional come in, you are assured that they will be able to resolve the problem. They also follow all COVID-19 protocols. I hope we do not have any future reoccurrences but if we do, we will definitely be using Critter Control again. Highly recommend!
Brandon was prompt and highly professional. He found and removed the dead animals, and did a great job in all respects. We are very happy with his services and recommend Brandon highly. Thanks again.
