Gatesville 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. 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. In addition to this, these little critters will also drag whatever they find into their den which includes wood, dirt, and even outdoor garbage.

Gatesville 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 to carry rabies, canine distemper, and raccoon roundworm. They may also carry parasites such as ticks, fleas, and lice that can cause severe skin irritations.

The Raccoon Removal Process

We use safe and humane methods to get rid of raccoons in your home. This is our procedure for removing raccoons from your home or property.

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

Setting traps

We set the traps in areas where the raccoons are known to frequent. The traps are baited with sweets such as marshmallows or wet cat food.

Remove the raccoon

We will capture the raccoon and remove them from your property ensuring they can no longer return.

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 will find any entry points that raccoons or other wildlife may use to get into your home and seal them all. Special mesh netting is used to seal holes and prevent animals from entering.

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 also works as an air freshener to get rid of any foul odors that may have been left behind by the 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. 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 is a specialist in the humane control and removal of wild animals. We use safe methods to remove raccoons from your property. Our technicians are professionals who know how to trap, bait, and remove these animals safely. 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 never work in any meaningful way. 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.

Some may even be harmful to humans and pets when used around the property. You can repel raccoons by making sure they are not attracted to your home.

Raccoon Infestation Signs

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

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.

Exterior damage to your home

Raccoons love to find a warm and cozy place to 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

Raccoons create lots of noises at night as they move around your attic, crawl spaces, and chimneys. These sounds can be heard through the floorboards or ceiling and is an obvious sign that you have an infestation on your hands. It’s important to seek professional help from wildlife experts right away before these critters cause permanent damage to your house.

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. 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

Pet owners should always be wary of raccoons because this animal is attracted to anything edible including dog or cat food left outside 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. This can cause animals to feel more anxious, and even aggressive if there is wildlife in their vicinity.

Attic Clean up and Re-insulation

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.

Insulation will most likely need to be replaced, even if it has not been 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. Clean-up should be done by qualified professionals because raccoon feces can cause a wide variety of problems like E. coli infection, hepatitis, and salmonellosis to name a few.

Wild Animal Damage Repair

Once clean-up is completed we’ll repair all damage caused by the raccoons such as ripped shingles or siding on your home or shed; chewed through wood trim around windows and doorways; 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.
