Raccoon in the Attic
Raccoons are attracted to attics because it provides a dry, warm, and safe place for them to 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.
Cibolo 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. 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. 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
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
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. 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. 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
After the cleaning is done, we will fix any damage that was caused by the infestation. These include: ripped shingles, chewed through wood and siding, etc. We’ll also replace insulation or roofing that is damaged, torn, or has been ripped apart.
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 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 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 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.
Some may even be harmful to humans and pets when used around the property. 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 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 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. In order to find this, they will tear apart anything that gets in their way including roofing shingles or vents for instance! 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
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. 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.

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
Attic restoration starts when it is established that there are no other animals present in the attic. 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. 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. 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.
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. Furthermore, if there are any gaps large enough for wildlife to get through, these will be covered and sealed.
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.
