Holes on the Exterior of Your Home
Raccoons are very strong for their size, and they can often tear off vent covers, shingles, siding, flashing or loose boards to get into your attic. Unless it’s high up on the roof, raccoon damage can usually be seen from the ground.
Due to their size, raccoons are also fairly loud and slow, so they are easy to spot. If you hear loud stomping or racket in your attic, it’s probably a raccoon. Once in your attic, a raccoons will gather materials to build a den. In the process, they often rip up insulation, tear open air ducts and in general cause a big mess.
Raccoons can also be rather vocal, especially baby raccoons. And because they are nocturnal, they are likely to make a lot of noise after dusk. Below is an example of noises raccoons make.
Raccoons are very smart and have become accustomed to living next to humans. They’ve learned that our trash sometimes has edible things and our porches is where we keep pet food. So they raid our garbage cans and break into our homes in search for food. Raccoons are also known to dig up plants from flower beds. If you see any of these signs, it’s possible the nuisance raccoons live in your attic.
When it comes to raccoon removal, we recommend hiring a professional simply because raccoons are very smart and can be reluctant to leave. Store-bought repellents and deterrents typically don’t work, and coming up to your attic when raccoons are there could be a bad idea. Let our professionals take all the risk and use our experience to get the nuisance raccoons out of your attic in a humane way.
Unfortunately, the problem doesn’t end once the raccoons are gone. Now you are left to deal with a big mess on top of the risk that other animals may decide to use the intrusion path laid out by raccoons. At Mid-Atlantic Wildlife Control, we can help you with both of these issues. First, we will patch any holes and repair other damage caused by raccoons to make sure your home is secure. Then we will clean out your attic and any raccoon poop or soiled insulation we find inside. Raccoon poop often contains dangerous parasites, so the thorough cleanup is crucial.
