Austin raccoons can cause permanent damage to your property by invading into your attics or yards.

Raccoon in the Attic

Raccoons love attics because they are a dry, warm, and secure place where the raccoons can have their young. Raccoons spend the day in their dens and then wander around your yard looking for food scraps and other items that will help them survive. In addition to this, these little critters will also drag whatever they find into their den which includes wood, dirt, and even outdoor garbage.

Austin Raccoon Removal

Removing raccoons from attics is a task that should be done by qualified professionals. Attempting to get rid of raccoons on your own can cause more harm than good. These critters will scratch, bite and urinate which can result in serious injuries or disease if they’re not handled properly.

Raccoons are known carriers of diseases such as rabies, raccoon roundworm, and canine distemper. Not only that but they may also carry parasites like fleas, ticks, and lice which can cause severe skin irritations.

The Raccoon Removal Process

We use humane and safe methods to remove raccoons from your home or property. Here’s our process for raccoon removal:

  • Set Traps
  • Remove Raccoon
  • Make home less attractive to wild animals
  • Seal entry holes
  • Clean attic
  • Repair any damage done

Setting traps

The traps are placed in areas that raccoons frequent. The traps can be baited using sweets like marshmallows or wet cats food.

Remove the raccoon

Once the raccoon is captured, we’ll remove them so that they aren’t able to return to your property.

Make your home less attractive to wild animals

We will remove the animal from your home and make it less appealing to other wildlife.

Seal the entry holes

We will find any entry points that raccoons or other wildlife may use to get into your home and seal them all. We use special mesh netting to cover holes and keep animals from getting inside.

Clean up the attic

To prevent the spread of diseases and parasites, we will clean out and disinfect your attic. Our special enzyme cleaner kills any bacteria or mold spores in your attic. It can also be used to remove any unpleasant odors left behind by raccoons.

Repair wildlife damage

Once cleaning is complete, we will repair all damage caused by the infestation both inside and outside of your property. These include ripped shingles and chewed through sidings. We can also replace roofing or insulation that has been damaged, torn or ripped off.

Wildlife Removal and Pest Control

It is not a good idea to use poisons or chemicals to rid raccoons of your home, especially if there are pets or children. Most commercial pest control companies use poisons which are a big concern for children and pets. Raccoons will track the poison inside your home creating a safety hazard for you and your family. You’ll also have dead raccoons in your home, which can cause an unpleasant smell that will take several weeks to eliminate.

AAAC Wildlife Removal specializes in the humane removal and control of wild animals. We use safe methods to remove raccoons from your property. Our technicians are trained professionals who understand how to properly trap, bait and remove these animals without causing any harm. Our raccoon removal process involves setting traps inside the attic, which allows us to remove a trapped animal without needing to come into contact with it or leave harmful chemicals behind.

Raccoon Repellents

Raccoon repellents sold in the market almost never work. These products claim to repel raccoons from your home. However, most of these products have very limited effects on raccoons as the animals can simply adapt to the noises and smells.

They can even cause harm to pets and humans. The best way to repel raccoons is to make sure they don’t have access to your house and that there isn’t anything attracting them to your property.

Signs of Raccoon Infestation

After they move into your attic, raccoons often leave evidence of their presence. These signs include:

  • Unpleasant smell of droppings
  • Damage to your home’s exterior
  • Strange noises
  • Tipped over garbage bins
  • Raccoon tracks
  • Missing pet food
  • Pets behaving strangely

Droppings that leave an unpleasant odor

Raccoons leave urine and droppings that eventually decompose and create a foul stench that can permeate throughout your house. Stains and urine can seep through ceilings and cause severe damage to insulation, sheetrock, and wooden beams.

Exterior damage to your home

Raccoons like nothing better than finding a nice warm place in which they can live. In order to find this, they will tear apart anything that gets in their way including roofing shingles or vents for instance! It is possible that you might see holes or tears around your house if there are any raccoons living inside. This could be dangerous as well because insulation materials may have been tampered with potentially exposing wiring within walls and ceilings thus increasing the chances of fire hazard! Strange noises

Strange noises

As they crawl around in your attic, crawl spaces, and chimneys, raccoons create a lot of noises. These sounds can be heard through the floorboards or ceiling and is an obvious sign that you have an infestation on your hands. Before these creatures cause permanent damage to your home, it is important to get professional assistance from wildlife experts immediately.

Trash strewn around the yard

The raccoon is a nocturnal animal and mostly scavenge at night. Raccoons love to dig through garbage cans and dumpsters looking for food scraps and other items that they can eat. You should seal your trash cans to stop raccoons from rummaging through them.

Raccoon tracks

Raccoons are nocturnal animals that feed at night. These critters love to rummage through your garbage cans and dumpsters in search of food scraps or other things that they can eat. If a raccoon has made its way into your property you should make sure that your trash bins are sealed shut so that these animals cannot get in.

Were you aware that Raccoons have very sensitive hands that almost act as a second set of eyes?

Missing pet food

Raccoons will eat any food, even cat or dog food, left out overnight. If your area is susceptible to raccoon infestation, it’s best to keep pet food indoors.

Did you know that Raccoons are omnivorous?

Pets acting strangely

Pets like cats and dogs will act strangely if they sense that raccoons have invaded your home. These animals can feel when there is an infestation of wildlife nearby and this causes them to become more alert, anxious, or even aggressive in some cases.

Re-insulation and Clean Up of Attic

When it is determined that no other animals are in the attic, attic restoration can begin. We will first clean up any droppings and do disinfection as they could contain the infectious raccoon roundworm.

Most of the time, insulation will need to be replaced even if it is not visibly damaged. It has been contaminated and a new layer should be put in its place after everything else has been taken care of.

To ensure that there are no harmful bacteria, we will clean out your attic from raccoon waste, debris, and nesting materials. Qualified professionals are the ones who should clean up raccoon waste as they can carry a variety of bacterias, including E.coli, hepatitis, salmonellosis, and hepatitis.

Wild Animal Damage Repair

After cleanup is complete, we will repair any damage done by the raccoons. This includes ripped siding on your house or shed, chewed through wood trim around doors and windows, etc. We can also replace insulation that has been damaged so badly that it needs to be replaced completely.

If we discover any holes in walls behind panels where raccoons have torn their way into the wall studs, we will seal them shut and sanitize the area. If there are gaps that allow wildlife to pass through, they will be sealed and covered.

If raccoons have damaged your vinyl siding, gutters, or downspouts or made them a source for water leakage onto the roofing structure, we will repair that as well.
