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.
High Point Raccoon Removal
Removing raccoons from attics is a task that should be done by qualified professionals. Raccoon removal can be more difficult than you think. These critters will scratch, bite and urinate which can result in serious injuries or disease if they’re not handled properly.
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 humane and safe methods to remove raccoons from your home or property. This is our procedure for removing raccoons from your home or property.
- Set Traps
- Remove Raccoon
- Make home less attractive to wild animals

- 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
We will capture the raccoon and remove them from your property ensuring they can no longer return.
Reduce the appeal of your home to wild animals
We will remove the animal from your home and make it less appealing to other wildlife.
Seal the entry holes
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. We use a special enzyme that kills off bacteria and mold spores that may have accumulated inside 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, chewed through wood and siding, etc. We can also replace roofing or insulation that has been damaged, torn or ripped off.
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 will track the poison inside your home creating a safety hazard 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 is a specialist in the humane control and removal of wild animals. We use safe methods to remove raccoons from your property. Our technicians are professionals who know how to trap, bait, and remove these animals safely. 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. These products claim to repel raccoons from your home. These products are unlikely to have any effect on raccoons, as they can adapt to the sounds and smells.
They can even cause harm to pets and humans. The best way to repel raccoons is to make sure they don’t have access to your house and that there isn’t anything attracting them to your property.
Signs of Raccoon Infestation
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
Droppings that leave an unpleasant odor
The droppings and urine of raccoons eventually decay and leave a foul stench which can permeate throughout your home. Stains and urine can seep through ceilings and cause severe damage to insulation, sheetrock, and 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. 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.

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
If raccoons invade your home, pets like dogs and cats will behave strangely. This can cause animals to feel more anxious, and even aggressive if there is wildlife in their vicinity.
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.
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.
We will clean up your attic of raccoon waste, debris, and nesting materials to make sure that no harmful bacteria are left behind. 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 can also replace insulation that has been damaged so badly that it needs to be replaced completely.
We will seal any holes found behind panels that have been chewed by raccoons and then disinfect the area. If there are gaps that allow wildlife to pass through, they will be sealed and covered.
If raccoons have damaged your vinyl siding, gutters, or downspouts or made them a source for water leakage onto the roofing structure, we will repair that as well.
