Raccoon in the Attic
Raccoons are attracted to attics because it provides a dry, warm, and safe place for them to have their young. During the day raccoons remain in their dens until nightfall where they roam around your house looking for food scraps or other things that can help them survive. These little creatures will also bring whatever they find to their den, including wood, dirt, and outdoor garbage.
West Pensacola Raccoon Removal
Raccoon removal from attics should only be attempted by professionals. Raccoon removal can be more difficult than you think. 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.
Our Raccoon Removal Process
We use humane and safe methods to remove raccoons from your home or property. Here’s our process for raccoon removal:
- Set Traps
- Remove Raccoon
- Make home less attractive to wild animals
- Seal entry holes
- Clean attic
- Repair any damage done
We set the traps in areas where the raccoons are known to frequent. The traps can be baited using sweets like marshmallows or wet cats food.
Remove the raccoon
Once the raccoon is captured, we’ll remove them so that they aren’t able to return to your property.
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, chewed through wood and siding, etc. We’ll also replace insulation or roofing that is damaged, torn, or has been ripped apart.
Wildlife Removal and Pest Control
Using chemicals or poisons to get rid of raccoons is never a good idea, especially if you have pets or children around. Pest control companies often use poisons that pose a danger to pets and children. Raccoons can track poison in your home, creating a safety risk for you and your family. In addition to this, you’ll have dead raccoons inside your home which will cause a horrendous stench that will take weeks to get rid of.
AAAC Wildlife Removal specializes in the humane removal and control of wild animals. We use safe methods to remove raccoons from your property. Our technicians are professionals who know how to trap, bait, and remove these animals safely. The raccoon removal process includes setting traps in the attic. This allows us to get rid of the animal without having to touch it or use any 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.
Raccoon Infestation Signs
Raccoons usually leave signs of their presence behind after they have moved into your attic. These signs 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
Raccoons leave urine and droppings that eventually decompose and create a foul stench that can permeate throughout your house. Stains and urine can seep through ceilings and cause severe damage to insulation, sheetrock, and wooden beams.
Damage to your home’s exterior
Raccoons love to find a warm and cozy place to live. To find it, they will destroy anything in their path, including roof shingles and vents. It is possible that you might see holes or tears around your house if there are any raccoons living inside. This could also be dangerous because insulation materials might have been altered, potentially exposing wiring in walls and ceilings. This can increase the risk of a 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.
Tipped over garbage cans
The raccoon is a nocturnal animal and mostly scavenge at night. Raccoons love to dig through garbage cans and dumpsters looking for food scraps and other items that they can eat. You should seal your trash cans to stop raccoons from rummaging through them.

Were you aware that Raccoons have very sensitive hands that almost act as a second set of eyes?
Missing pet food
Raccoons will eat any food, even cat or dog food, left out overnight. If your area is susceptible to raccoon infestation, it’s best to keep pet food indoors.
Did you know that Raccoons are omnivorous?
Strange behavior in pets
If raccoons invade your home, pets like dogs and cats will behave strangely. These animals can feel when there is an infestation of wildlife nearby and this causes them to become more alert, anxious, or even aggressive in some cases.
Attic Clean up and Re-insulation
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.
We will clean up your attic of raccoon waste, debris, and nesting materials to make sure that no harmful bacteria are left behind. Clean-up should be done by qualified professionals because raccoon feces can cause a wide variety of problems like E. coli infection, hepatitis, and salmonellosis to name a few.

Wild Animal Damage Repair
After cleanup is complete, we will repair any damage done by the raccoons. This includes ripped siding on your house or shed, chewed through wood trim around doors and windows, etc. We also replace insulation that is damaged badly enough that it needs to be replaced entirely.
If we discover any holes in walls behind panels where raccoons have torn their way into the wall studs, we will seal them shut and sanitize the area. If there are gaps that allow wildlife to pass through, they will be sealed and covered.
If raccoons have damaged your vinyl siding, gutters, or downspouts or made them a source for water leakage onto the roofing structure, we will repair that as well.
