Raccoon-Rabies-Vaccine-Project-300x199How Raccoons Enter Homes

You may think that raccoon invasion and other wildlife problems happen only to vacant homes, but that’s not true. The only reason vacant homes may be affected more is because they are also more neglected, leaving many vulnerabilities for wildlife to find and use. Not to say that well-maintained homes never get broken into by wildlife, but they have a far better chance to stand up to raccoons and other animals.

Here is how many raccoons enter Ellicott City homes.

  • Raccoons often enter from the roof as they are going for the attic and aren’t interested in sharing the living space with you.
  • If you have trees near your home, raccoons often use overhanging branches to leap onto your roof. If branches aren’t available, raccoons are known to climb on fences, shrubs, downspouts and other adjacent structures and vegetation to get to the roof.
  • Once on the roof, raccoons will look for weak spots, holes, gaps and things that can be easily pried open.
  • Raccoons often find that roof and gable vents as well as rotten soffits are the easiest to manipulate, which is where they strike and gain entry.

Ellicott City Raccoon Removal You Can Count on

When it comes to raccoon removal in Ellicott City, we recommend hiring a professional to do the job right the first time. Raccoons are very smart and it’s often hard to tell how many of them are in your attic. Meanwhile, it’s crucial to remove them all before you close off their entrance points. Sealing an animal in a closed-in space may end tragically for the animal, as well as lead to an extensive cleanup for you.

At Mid-Atlantic Wildlife Control, we practice humane wildlife removal in Ellicott City. We use only live traps and take care to keep the raccoon families together whenever possible. We partner with numerous wildlife shelters and rehabilitation facilities in the area that offer help with animals that may be sick, injured or in need of a temporary safe place to stay. We also offer complete attic cleanup, removing any raccoon droppings and repairing the damage these animals may have caused. The final step is usually raccoon-proofing your home to make sure it doesn’t get broken into again.
