Warm and dark attics make perfect hiding places for raccoons. Female raccoons break in during late winter to have their litters during the early spring. Attics are warm, they are dry, secure, and shielded from the elements. Female raccoons have a powerful instinct when they automatically seek out safe, enclosed places, especially when they are pregnant. It is very common to get a female raccoon about to produce young to make its way and make into an attic.

Raccoons are exceptional climbers, they are quite powerful, plus they have quite nimble hands. The raccoon don’t have any trouble entering any attic they select, on nearly every house. Most times, the raccoon has picked an attic depending on closeness or convenience with their regular home range.

The most famous region is any location where an eave meets up against some architectural curve leading segments of the roof, including a dormer, or a roof section of your home. Other entrance places that are quite common are roof vents, gable vents, and soffit vents. Occasionally raccoons will  just tear through wooden roof, right to the attic from the shingles – they’re not that weak. Click the link for more pictures of raccoon entrance points.

Raccoons frequently make their way under decks. They use the tight space under decks to sleep at night, usually during the warmer months. Keeping them out is imperative as they will contaminate the area with feces and other debris and animal matter. Getting them out is the first step, keeping them out is the next. We utilize a variety of techniques to get them out. We then seal the deck so that no other animal can get under.

Raccoons in the Chimney

raccoon-in-chimneyChimneys are like hollow trees to wildlife. It is an ideal place for a raccoon to nurse babies. Once there, the animals will make a home out of your fireplace damper. Screening off the chimney will prevent any animals from entering. We apply a one way door to allow animals exit. Once they are out, we return, remove the door and cap off the chimney.

 

Raccoon Proofing

We provide a variety of services. From simple installation of wire mesh and one way doors to complete wildlife proofing of an entire property.

It just gets worse with time.The longer you leave a raccoon situation unattended the damage will just getting worse. Raccoons are wild animals and will continue to make larger entry points, extensive contamination and not to mention the ongoing irritation of having wild animals living in your space. Roof holes will get larger and new entry points will be created as new animals follow the scent trail that previous animals have created. Older structures with unaptaded roofs are more prone to receive more damage. The strength of the animal and the natural curiosity drives them to cause more damage. More damage means higher repair cost. The cost will include the cost to get the animals out and then it will be followed by the cost of having roofers or professional roof repair technicians to seal things up.
