Raccoon Removal

Most commonly, raccoons will reside in either your home’s chimney or attic; typically raccoons start their home invasions during the early spring. Raccoon mothers, who are pregnant, will look for a safe and secure place to deliver her babies; more times than not, your attic or chimney are her top choices!photo23

Raccoons are extremely strong and destructive; they will rip shingles of roofs, remove faulty chimney screens and caps, they will pretty much destroy anything in their site to gain access to your home.

Once inside your home, the mother will designate separate spots for her nest and toilet; raccoons always defecate and urinate in the same exact spot. Unfortunately, raccoons do not use the toilet outside, and after a while, the smell sinks into the insulation of your home, causing an awful odor to diffuse through your home.

Raccoons, by nature, are very destructive, and will destroy insulation, wires, shingles and other parts of your house. Because they are so destructive, having raccoons in your house is very dangerous for your family and your pets; please call us if there are any signs of a raccoon inside your home, it takes a professional to capture and remove these creatures!

Speaking of signs, here is a list of some of the common red flags that indicate you quite possibly could have a raccoon residing in your attic:

  • When you hear loud scratch noises in the middle of the night
  • If you here chirping sounds similar to birds, chances are there is a nest of pups.
  • You could even hear these chirping and scratching noises in your fireplace too.
  • Look for damage on your roof, and siding along the outside of your home.
  • If you see a raccoon on your roof or porch, chances are they are trying to get in, or they’re returning to their nest.
