Raccoons troubling you in Columbia? Let our Columbia raccoon removal experts solve the problem fast and efficiently. We pride ourselves on using humane animal removal methods and educating our clients on how to avoid human/wildlife conflicts.
Raccoons may seem cute and even funny, but you won’t be laughing when there is a raccoon family in your attic, trust us. Despite their goofy disposition, raccoons can do some serious damage. They use their strong paws to tear open holes in your roof and to shred whatever they can find in your attic into nesting material.
When we clean up Columbia attics after a raccoon infestation, we often find air ducts that have been ripped open, insulation that was torn and packed, as well as raccoon feces all over the place. You get the picture! The sooner you can get the raccoons out, the less damage and cleanup you’ll have to deal with.
Here is a video showing some of the signs that you may have a raccoon in your attic, as well as what sort of damage it can do:
If you are reading this as you research DIY raccoon removal methods and products, stop and think for a second. Is it really worth the effort? Would it be such a hit to your budget to pay slightly more to a professional and not have to worry about anything? Consider these benefits of hiring a Columbia raccoon removal company:
Seriously, this is an important benefit. We’ve been called before to help homeowners after they attempted to “chase away” a raccoon on their own. It didn’t always end well. In a few cases, a mother raccoon protecting her young actually attacked the homeowners, causing minor injuries. And let’s not forget that raccoons frequently carry rabies! Even if the animal in question was healthy, it could still mean a trip to the ER and a prophylactic rabies shot for you.
That’s right, at Mid-Atlantic Wildlife Control we do this for you! We will go in the attic, take out all the nesting materials and damaged insulation, remove raccoon feces and disinfect the space. Our technicians are also skilled in basic carpentry and will happily repair the holes made by raccoons and even install protective vent covers to secure other potentially vulnerable spots around your house.
Raccoons are very smart—they know all your tricks and they won’t easily agree to leave your nice and warm attic. Your repellents will most likely be a waste of money, because the only sure and humane way to remove raccoons is to capture and relocate them. Of course, you can purchase raccoon traps on your own, but even if you manage to capture the masked bandit, what are you going to do with it? And what if you have 5 raccoons, will you buy 5 traps? Where do you plan on keeping the captured raccoons until you capture all 5? What if there are babies too young to leave the nest? When you work with a professional, you don’t have to worry about these and 100s of other little details.
