Raccoon Removal

Raccoons are common throughout North America. Their feet are well adapted for climbing. They are large animals, weighing between 10 and 40+ pounds. Raccoons can transmit rabies which is transferable to humans. Raccoons den inside hollow trees or logs, rock crevices, deserted buildings, culverts, storm sewers, chimneys, attics, and crawl spaces, sometimes having more than one den. Raccoons are mostly active at night, although they may be seen at dawn or dusk. These nocturnal animals are notorious for getting stuck in attics and making loud noises in the middle of the night. Raccoons will enter attics when looking for shelter and will make a comfy home out of your attic insulation. Once inside they can cause a great deal of damage to insulation. During the night hours, you may hear raccoons running back and forth in the ceiling of your home or scratching at your drywall. Raccoons can be some of the loudest animals when stuck inside your home. To effectively get rid of raccoons and prevent these sounds from keeping you up all night, a professional should be called. Our wildlife experts can effectively trap raccoons and keep them out of your home for good.
