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. In addition to this, these little critters will also drag whatever they find into their den which includes wood, dirt, and even outdoor garbage.
Selma 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. Not only that but they may also carry parasites like fleas, ticks, and lice which can cause severe skin irritations.

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 the entry holes
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. 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. 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 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. Pest control companies often use poisons that pose a danger to pets and children. 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.

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 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.
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
Raccoons usually leave signs of their presence behind after they have moved into your attic. 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
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 can seep through ceilings and cause severe damage to insulation, sheetrock, and 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! 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
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. 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
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?
Pets acting strangely
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.
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. 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.

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 can also replace insulation that has been damaged so badly that it needs to be replaced completely.
We will seal any holes found behind panels that have been chewed by raccoons and then disinfect the area. Furthermore, if there are any gaps large enough for wildlife to get through, these will be covered and sealed.
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.
