Raccoons in Harker Heights attics and yards can cause lasting 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. 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. These little creatures will also bring whatever they find to their den, including wood, dirt, and outdoor garbage.

Harker Heights Raccoon Removal

Raccoon removal from attics should only be attempted by 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 humane and safe methods to remove raccoons from your home or property. 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 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 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

We’ll clean your attic of all raccoon waste and debris to prevent the spread of parasites and diseases. 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’ll also replace insulation or roofing that is damaged, torn, or has been ripped apart.

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 can track poison in your home, creating a safety risk for you and your family. In addition to this, you’ll have dead raccoons inside your home which will cause a horrendous stench that will take weeks to get rid of.

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 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 never work in any meaningful way. These products claim to repel raccoons from your home. 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. 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

Raccoons usually leave signs of their presence behind after they have moved into your attic. 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 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

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.

Tipped over garbage cans

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

Raccoons are nocturnal animals that feed 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

Raccoons will eat any food, even cat or dog food, left out overnight. So it’s best to keep pet food indoors and avoid feeding pets outdoors if your area is prone to raccoon infestation.

Did you know that Raccoons are omnivorous?

Strange behavior in pets

If raccoons invade your home, pets like dogs and cats will behave strangely. 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. Droppings are the first thing we’ll clean up and sanitize as they can 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 also replace insulation that is damaged badly enough that it needs to be replaced entirely.

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.
