Humane Raccoon Control Services
Raccoons are a familiar animal to homeowners. Usually the extent of the headache they cause is limited to tearing apart your trash bags after you put them out of garbage collection, but sometimes they can be a more serious concern for homeowners.
While raccoons in your garbage cans is a fairly minor irritation, raccoons in your attic or crawl space can be a major (and expensive) problem. This is why we have expert technicians on and 24/7 who specialize in raccoon removal. Our safe and humane removal tactics will ensure that your home is free from the nuisance raccoons in no time.
How do Raccoons end up in your home?
Raccoons are clever and strong animals. It is not difficult for them to find a way into your attic or crawl space. Typically, they find gaps or holes in the soffit and fascia corners of attics and enter through those; however, because raccoons are so strong, they have been known to rip holes in roofs or the fencing under decks to gain entry. Not only does this cause property damage to your home, it also creates a slew of additional issues that come with a raccoon infestation.
Why should you care about getting rid of raccoons?
Raccoons are nocturnal, so when they get into your home the first irritation you will notice is their late night noises. Not only are these noises annoying and make it difficult for you to sleep, they can also cause extreme unrest and anxiety for small children and family pets. While raccoons may not seem like that big of a problem initially, they are actually highly destructive and can cause substantially more damage than a small hole in your roof or fence and some nighttime noise.
If raccoons do find a way inside your home, they will tear up insulation in your attic, rip apart ductwork, destroy the insulation around pipes, chew and destroy wires and cables creating fire hazards, and generally be a messy and smelly nuisance. If you suspect you may have raccoons you should look for a few telltale signs to ensure that you catch them before they destroy too much.
Typically you will hear or see or smell signs of raccoons instead of actually seeing the animals themselves. Hearing scuffling or loud walking in your attic late at night are typically good indicators that you may have raccoons. You may also start to notice feces in your crawlspace or around areas of your home that the raccoons are living. This means that it is time to call in the professionals.
