Raccoons are an important part of nature, but they do not belong in your attic. They are a nuisance and should be dealt with as soon as possible before they damage your property. If not dealt with, raccoons will damage your insulation with feces and urine. This can lead to expensive repairs and even an attic restoration.
Raccoons can also get into your garbage cans and make a terrible mess! They will not only tip over your garbage cans, but they will also spread trash around your yard and even down your street. Raccoons will eat just about anything which makes them an Omnivore. Because of their tendency to forage through your trash, they have a rather cute nickname of "Trash Panda". But cuteness aside, these messy little fellows do not belong in your neighborhood.
We provide raccoon trapping services as well as repair work. Our goal is to remove the animal and fix the entry point(s). Raccoons are very agile and can easily squeeze through a hole about the size of a grapefruit. In most cases, there is already something broken or missing from the roof and that’s when raccoons will tear away at the opening to make it bigger. Raccoons feel much safer in an attic than outside in the wild, which is why they’ll sometimes even give birth to their young in attics. This can lead to further damage to your insulation.
Our trapping services will remove any adult or juvenile raccoons from your attic and we will repair the entry point. This will prevent the raccoons from entering your attic again and help maintain the health of your roof. Once an animal has left its scent in your attic, other animals will try to gain access as well. Sealing your home is the only way to keep other animals from entering your home.
If a raccoon has babies, you will hear some very strange sounds coming out of the attic. If a raccoon and her babies are in the attic, we often times use a paste or a fluid to evict them instead of using traps. Immediate raccoon removal through the use of eviction fluid is not guaranteed, but usually the female will have a reaction to the fluid. If the female moves moves her babies to another area of the structure we can re-apply the eviction fluid and successfully remove the raccoons.
Wildlife control is not an exact science. Our technicians will perform a full interior and exterior inspection. Afterward, he will provide an estimate to trap your problem raccoon and seal all points of entry to your home. Our highly trained technicians will also provide you with a thorough assessment and an outline of the actions they will take to resolve the issue. If the technician encounters any issues along the way, he will adapt and utilize alternate methods until the problem is resolved.
Most raccoons are friendly towards humans and are unbothered by their presence. Those cute little masked faces will make you want to leave food out for them, but that's not a good idea. Remember they are still wild animals and can carry a variety of diseases and can become aggressive towards humans.
If you would like to keep these rascals off of your property, make sure your trash is tidy and secured. Since raccoons love dog and cat food, you should probably bring in any pet food that’s left outside. Make sure all areas to your home are properly sealed to keep raccoons from making themselves at home.
Did you know that raccoons do not truly hibernate in winter? These guys will find a nice warm place to hole up in for days, weeks, or even months, depending on the weather. A raccoon will range anywhere from 3 to 20 miles to find a good place to spend the winter.
Since raccoons are nocturnal, you will rarely see them during the day. These cute creatures average 2' to 3' long (including the tail), and weigh 10 - 20 lbs. Raccoons are omnivorous which means they will eat both plant and animal foods, such as fruits, nuts, berries, grain, bird eggs, nestlings, insects, amphibians, small rodents, etc. And they really like your garbage!
Raccoons will usually breed in February or March and have a 60 day gestation. A litter can be from 1- 8 pups, with 4 or 5 being the average. Young are born from March to June and open their eyes at about 3 weeks of age. The pups are usually weaned at 8 - 12 weeks. Raccoons nest in tree cavities, chimneys, ground burrows, sewers, attics, garages, etc.
When the baby raccoons are old enough to forage on their own, they are called juveniles. These juvenile raccoons can get into all sorts of mischief, such as getting stuck in garbage cans or dumpsters, or other tight spots. Even raccoons have a learning curve!
