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.
Summerfield 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. 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 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
- 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.
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 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. We use special mesh netting to cover holes and keep animals from getting inside.
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, 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
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 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 is a specialist in the humane control and removal 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. 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.
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.
Signs of Raccoon Infestation
After they move into your attic, raccoons often leave evidence of their presence. These signs 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
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.
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. If there are raccoons in your home, it is possible to see holes and tears. 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
The raccoon is a nocturnal animal and mostly scavenge at night. Raccoons love to dig through garbage cans and dumpsters looking for food scraps and other items 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?
Strange behavior in pets
Pets like cats and dogs will act strangely if they sense that raccoons have invaded your home. 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.
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
Once clean-up is completed we’ll repair all damage caused by the raccoons such as ripped shingles or siding on your home or shed; chewed through wood trim around windows and doorways; etc. We also replace insulation that is damaged badly enough that it needs to be replaced entirely.
We will seal any holes found behind panels that have been chewed by raccoons and then disinfect 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.
