Get Rid of Raccoons in Your Attic Now!
Raccoons are an important part of nature, but they do not belong in your the attic. They are a nuisance and should be dealt with as soon as possible before they damage your property.
- Raccoons make a lot of noise when they chirp and call. Juvenile raccoons are especially loud.
- If not dealt with, raccoons will damage your insulation with feces and urine. This will reduce the value of the installed installation.
Our technicians are experts in raccoon removal and will solve your problem. We use a variety of methods to get rid of raccoons.
We provide raccoon trapping services as well as repair work. Our goal is to remove the animal and fix the hole(s). Raccoons are very agile and can easily fit into 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 exploit 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.
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. We often are asked about many different types of raccoon issues. Below is a list of some of the more common problems associated with raccoon removal and how to deal with them.
Raccoons with Young
If the raccoons have young, you will hear some very strange sounds coming out of the attic. If a raccoon and her young 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 in any case, the female will have a reaction to the fluid. If the female moves moves the young 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 in methods but our technicians will perform an inspection and provide a complete solution to eliminate your raccoon problem. Our technicians will also provide you with a thorough assessment and an outline of the actions they will take to resolve the issue. If they encounter any issues along the way, they will adapt and utilize alternate methods until the problem is resolved.

- Homes with additional levels may require our technicians to deploy tall ladder setups. Jobs that require this affect the cost of the raccoon removal.
- How long have the raccoons been living in the attic
- As the infestation goes on more and more damage will occur. Raccoon feces and urine damage insulation and reduce its R value.
- Are there juveniles (baby raccoons)?
- The easiest way to identify a juvenile or baby raccoon are by the loud noises they make.
- How extensive is the damage to the roof?
- Raccoons usually create at least a single grapefruit sized hole when they enter an attic. Our technicians will repair any damage that occurred to the roof but these costs will vary based on the entry point.
- Is the damage covered by insurance?
- If your raccoon damage is covered by insurance, most insurance companies will not allow a partial cleanup and require that all of the attic insulation is removed and replaced.
- When working with insurance companies additional documentation is required which will increase the amount of time the removal takes.
- Is there any damage to the A/C ducting?
- This may be hard to detect but due to their large size, raccoons can easily crush flexible ducting and may even breach it by clawing.
As you can see, there are a number of factors that can impact the cost of raccoon removal. Contact one of our technicians and so we can identify how the raccoons got into your attic, clean up the mess they left behind, and take steps to prevent them from reentering.
