Raccoon in the Attic
Raccoons love attics because they are a dry, warm, and secure place where the raccoons can 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. These little creatures will also bring whatever they find to their den, including wood, dirt, and outdoor garbage.
Litchfield Park Raccoon Removal
Raccoon removal from attics should only be attempted by 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. Not only that but they may also carry parasites like fleas, ticks, and lice which can cause severe skin irritations.
Our Raccoon Removal Process
We use safe and humane methods to get rid of raccoons in your home. Here’s our process for raccoon removal:
- 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 are baited with sweets such as marshmallows or wet cat food.
Remove the raccoon
Once the raccoon is captured, we’ll remove them so that they aren’t able to return to your property.
Reduce the appeal of your home to wild animals
After removing the animal, we’ll make your home less attractive to raccoons and other wildlife by removing all possible food and water sources.
Seal all entry points
We’ll find possible entry points where raccoons and other wildlife might be getting into your house and we’ll seal all of them off. Special mesh netting is used to seal holes and prevent animals from entering.
Clean up the attic
To prevent the spread of diseases and parasites, we will clean out and disinfect your attic. Our special enzyme cleaner kills any bacteria or mold spores in your attic. It also works as an air freshener to get rid of any foul odors that may have been left behind by the raccoons.
Repair wildlife damage
Once cleaning is complete, we will repair all damage caused by the infestation both inside and outside of your property. These include: ripped shingles, chewed through wood and siding, etc. We’ll also replace insulation or roofing that is damaged, torn, or has been ripped apart.
Wildlife Removal and Pest Control
Using chemicals or poisons to get rid of raccoons is never a good idea, especially if you have pets or children around. Pest control companies often use poisons that pose a danger to pets and children. Raccoons can track poison in your home, creating a safety risk for you and your family. You’ll also have dead raccoons in your home, which can cause an unpleasant smell that will take several weeks to eliminate.
AAAC Wildlife Removal specializes in the humane removal and control of wild animals. We will remove raccoons safely from your property. Our technicians are professionals who know how to trap, bait, and remove these animals safely. Our raccoon removal process involves setting traps inside the attic, which allows us to remove a trapped animal without needing to come into contact with it or leave 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.
Some may even be harmful to humans and pets when used around the property. You can repel raccoons by making sure they are not attracted to your home.
Raccoon Infestation Signs
Raccoons usually leave signs of their presence behind after they have moved into your attic. 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
The droppings and urine of raccoons eventually decay and leave a foul stench which can permeate throughout your home. Stains and urine will also seep through the ceiling and cause serious damage to insulation, sheetrock, or even wooden beams.
Damage to your home’s exterior
Raccoons like nothing better than finding a nice warm place in which they can 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 also be dangerous because insulation materials might have been altered, potentially exposing wiring in walls and ceilings. This can increase the risk of a fire hazard. Strange noises
Raccoons create lots of noises at night as they move around your attic, crawl spaces, and chimneys. This is a sign you have an infestation. Before these creatures cause permanent damage to your home, it is important to get professional assistance from wildlife experts immediately.
Trash strewn around the yard
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. If your area is susceptible to raccoon infestation, it’s best to keep pet food indoors.
Did you know that Raccoons are omnivorous?
Pets acting strangely
If raccoons invade your home, pets like dogs and cats will behave strangely. These animals can feel when there is an infestation of wildlife nearby and this causes them to become more alert, anxious, or even aggressive in some cases.
Attic Clean up and Re-insulation
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.
Insulation will most likely need to be replaced, even if it has not been 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. Clean-up should be done by qualified professionals because raccoon feces can cause a wide variety of problems like E. coli infection, hepatitis, and salmonellosis to name a few.

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 can also replace insulation that has been damaged so badly that it needs to be replaced completely.
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. If there are gaps that allow wildlife to pass through, they will be sealed and covered.
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.
