Raccoons can be extremely destructive if they find their way into your home. They are agile climbers with dexterous paws that can open latches, doors, and even jars. Raccoons have become a common nuisance in urban and rural areas. They will often make dens in attics, sheds, and uncapped chimneys.

More on raccoon removal
Raccoons are messy house guests that will make their presence known. Aside from making loud thuds in the attic, raccoons will also destroy insulation by defecating on it and tearing it apart to use as nesting material.
Homeowners can protect their property from transient raccoons by removing potential food sources, such as birdseed or food left out overnight for pets. It’s also important to make sure that trashcans are securely closed and any potential entry points on the home are sealed.
Raccoons will be aggressive when confronted and they can carry a host of bacterial diseases and parasites such as rabies, roundworm, salmonella, and leptospirosis. Removing raccoons from a home or business should be done by a trained professional. If you suspect you have raccoons, contact our team today.
