Copperas Cove raccoons may cause damage to your property.

Raccoon in the Attic

Raccoons love attics because they are a dry, warm, and secure place where the raccoons can have their young. During the day raccoons remain in their dens until nightfall where they roam around your house looking for food scraps or other things that can help them survive. These little creatures will also bring whatever they find to their den, including wood, dirt, and outdoor garbage.

Copperas Cove 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. If they aren’t handled correctly, these critters can cause serious injury by biting, scratching, and urinating.

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

Our Raccoon Removal Process

We use safe and humane methods to get rid of raccoons in your home. 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 are baited with sweets such as marshmallows or wet cat food.

Remove the raccoon

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

Reduce the appeal of your home to wild animals

After removing the animal, we’ll make your home less attractive to raccoons and other wildlife by removing all possible food and water sources.

Seal all entry points

We’ll find possible entry points where raccoons and other wildlife might be getting into your house and we’ll seal all of them off. We use special mesh netting to cover holes and keep animals from getting inside.

Clean up the attic

We’ll clean your attic of all raccoon waste and debris to prevent the spread of parasites and diseases. We use a special enzyme that kills off bacteria and mold spores that may have accumulated inside 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, chewed through wood and siding, etc. We can also replace roofing or insulation that has been damaged, torn or ripped off.

Wildlife Removal and Pest Control

Using chemicals or poisons to get rid of raccoons is never a good idea, especially if you have pets or children around. Pest control companies often use poisons that pose a danger to pets and children. Raccoons can track poison in your home, creating a safety risk 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 will remove raccoons safely from your property. Our technicians are trained professionals who understand how to properly trap, bait and remove these animals without causing any harm. The raccoon removal process includes setting traps in the attic. This allows us to get rid of the animal without having to touch it or use any harmful chemicals behind.

Raccoon Repellents

Raccoon repellents sold in the market almost never work. There are a number of these products out there that are advertised as being able to keep raccoons away from your property. These products are unlikely to have any effect on raccoons, as they can adapt to the sounds and smells.

They can even cause harm to pets and humans. You can repel raccoons by making sure they are not attracted to your home.

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

Unpleasant smell of droppings

The droppings and urine of raccoons eventually decay and leave a foul stench which can permeate throughout your home. Stains and urine will also seep through the ceiling and cause serious damage to insulation, sheetrock, or even wooden beams.

Damage to your home’s exterior

Raccoons like nothing better than finding a nice warm place in which they can live. To find it, they will destroy anything in their path, including roof shingles and vents. If there are raccoons in your home, it is possible to see holes and tears. This could also be dangerous because insulation materials might have been altered, potentially exposing wiring in walls and ceilings. This can increase the risk of a fire hazard. Strange noises

Strange noises

As they crawl around in your attic, crawl spaces, and chimneys, raccoons create a lot of noises. This is a sign you have an infestation. 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

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. You should seal your trash cans to stop raccoons from rummaging through them.

Raccoon tracks

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.

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?

Strange behavior in pets

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

Attic restoration starts when it is established that there are no other animals present in the attic. Droppings are the first thing we’ll clean up and sanitize as they can contain the infectious raccoon roundworm.

Insulation will most likely need to be replaced, even if it has not been damaged. After all other precautions have been taken, it should be replaced with a new layer.

We will clean up your attic of raccoon waste, debris, and nesting materials to make sure that no harmful bacteria are left behind. 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.

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 also replace insulation that is damaged badly enough that it needs to be replaced entirely.

We will seal any holes found behind panels that have been chewed by raccoons and then disinfect the area. If there are gaps that allow wildlife to pass through, they will be sealed and covered.

We will also fix any damage to the vinyl siding, gutters, and downspouts if raccoons have chewed through them or turned them into a source of water leakage onto your roofing structure.
