Sometimes raccoons need to be trapped and "evicted" before fecal cleaning and deodorization can begin. Once the raccoon has been captured, the technician will relocate it to a reserve over twenty miles from your home so that this little guy will never leave a mess in your attic again!
As you can tell by the look on this fellow's face, raccoons are never happy to be trapped! However, removal and relocation is often the only choice left when it comes to keeping a clean and healthy home.
Before releasing a trapped raccoon into its new home, our technician will check the animal for dehydration and injuries. We want to make sure the raccoon is healthy, otherwise it may be vulnerable to predators. When we come across baby raccoons, a local rehabilitator who is licensed by the State of Tennessee will be contacted. Naturally, our office staff is always delighted to feed and care for wildlife babies until the rehabilitator arrives!
So if raccoons are pooping in your attic, don't wait! Call Apex today!
