Have you been hearing scratching noises or other loud noises coming from above in your home? Then you may have raccoons in the attic!
How to Get Rid of Raccoons in Your Attic
The professionals at Critter Control have been trained with the most effective methods of removing raccoons from attics or from other areas of any home, as it can sometimes be a lengthy process to remove raccoons from the attic.
The best way to get rid of a raccoon is a trap. At Critter Control, we secure raccoon trap and set it away from anything you do not want to be destroyed. We place traps in an area where raccoons frequent. Because the raccoon trap needs to be check, we do place it in a somewhat accessible location.
Critter Control uses only humane raccoon trapping techniques that are environmentally friendly and ecologically safe to remove raccoons from attics. Once the raccoons in the attic have been removed, our professionals can then identify the point of entry for the raccoons in the attic and repair this area to ensure you will never have raccoons in your attic again.
Raccoon in Attic Repellents
Repellents are not effective. Raccoons will eventually get used to bright lights or loud music. Mothballs are dangerous and ineffective. The only exception is raccoon eviction fluid, and that only works if a mother raccoon has a nest of young raccoons in your attic.
How Raccoons Get into Your Attic
Raccoons are excellent climbers. They use tree limbs, downspouts, or even siding to gain access to your roof. Once on your roof, entry points include shingles, loose soffits, eaves, vents, or roof returns. Raccoons can take a small entry hole and create a bigger one.
Once raccoons are trapped and removed, you need to seal all current and potential entry points for long lasting raccoon control.
Raccoon in Attic Damage
Generally damage caused by raccoons in the attic includes building dens and creating latrine sites. Both activities destroy the attic's insulation.
Mother raccoons enter attics because it is a safe place to give birth. The females will use insulation and other materials to create a nest for the baby raccoons.
When they den in residential areas, raccoons create separate latrine sites. They consistently return to these locations to defecate and urinate. Raccoon droppings can spread raccoon roundworm (Baylisascaris procyonis), and raccoon urine can spread leptospirosis. Attempting to clean up after a raccoon can expose you to both diseases.
