Raccoon in the Attic
Raccoons are attracted to attics because it provides a dry, warm, and safe place for them to have their young. During the day raccoons remain in their dens until nightfall where they roam around your house looking for food scraps or other things that can help them survive. In addition to this, these little critters will also drag whatever they find into their den which includes wood, dirt, and even outdoor garbage.
Avondale Raccoon Removal
Removing raccoons from attics is a task that should be done by qualified professionals. Attempting to get rid of raccoons on your own can cause more harm than good. If they aren’t handled correctly, these critters can cause serious injury by biting, scratching, and urinating.
Raccoons are known to carry rabies, canine distemper, and raccoon roundworm. They may also carry parasites such as ticks, fleas, and lice that can cause severe skin irritations.
The Raccoon Removal Process
We use safe and humane methods to get rid of raccoons in your home. This is our procedure for removing raccoons from your home or property.
- Set Traps
- Remove Raccoon
- Make home less attractive to wild animals
- Seal entry holes
- Clean attic
- Repair any damage done
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
Once the raccoon is captured, we’ll remove them so that they aren’t able to return to your property.
Make your home less attractive to wild animals
We will remove the animal from your home and make it less appealing to other wildlife.
Seal the entry holes
We will find any entry points that raccoons or other wildlife may use to get into your home and seal them all. 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 can also be used to remove any unpleasant odors left behind by raccoons.
Repair wildlife damage
After the cleaning is done, we will fix any damage that was caused by the infestation. These include ripped shingles and chewed through sidings. We can also replace roofing or insulation that has been damaged, torn or ripped off.
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. Pest control companies often use poisons that pose a danger to pets and children. 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 use safe methods to remove raccoons from your property. Our technicians are trained professionals who understand how to properly trap, bait and remove these animals without causing any harm. The raccoon removal process includes setting traps in the attic. This allows us to get rid of the animal without having to touch it or use any harmful chemicals behind.
Raccoon repellents sold in the market never work in any meaningful way. There are a number of these products out there that are advertised as being able to keep raccoons away from your property. However, most of these products have very limited effects on raccoons as the animals can simply adapt to the noises 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.
Raccoon Infestation Signs
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
Unpleasant smell of droppings
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 love to find a warm and cozy place to live. To find it, they will destroy anything in their path, including roof shingles and vents. It is possible that you might see holes or tears around your house if there are any raccoons living inside. This could be dangerous as well because insulation materials may have been tampered with potentially exposing wiring within walls and ceilings thus increasing the chances of fire hazard! 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
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.
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. If a raccoon has made its way into your property you should make sure that your trash bins are sealed shut so that these animals cannot get in.
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?
Pets acting strangely
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
Attic restoration starts when it is established that there are no other animals present in the attic. Droppings are the first thing we’ll clean up and sanitize as they can contain the infectious raccoon roundworm.
Most of the time, insulation will need to be replaced even if it is not visibly damaged. After all other precautions have been taken, it should be replaced with a new layer.
To ensure that there are no harmful bacteria, we will clean out your attic from raccoon waste, debris, and nesting materials. Qualified professionals are the ones who should clean up raccoon waste as they can carry a variety of bacterias, including E.coli, hepatitis, salmonellosis, and hepatitis.

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.
If we discover any holes in walls behind panels where raccoons have torn their way into the wall studs, we will seal them shut and sanitize the area. Furthermore, if there are any gaps large enough for wildlife to get through, these will be covered and sealed.
We will also fix any damage to the vinyl siding, gutters, and downspouts if raccoons have chewed through them or turned them into a source of water leakage onto your roofing structure.
