If you’ve ever had a raccoon, or a whole family of raccoons, in your home, you know how much trouble and destruction they can cause. It’s an awful, nasty mess with even worse possibilities. Raccoons are capable of destroying insulation, spreading diseases, and leaving a trail of waste. That’s why it’s best to call Attic Kings for Lawrenceville raccoon removal.
Raccoons, though a necessary part of nature, can cause structural damage to your home. Things like destroyed shingles, holes in the attic, torn up insulation, and ripped ducts are all signs of a raccoon infestation. These critters can also tip over trash cans, causing additional pests to invade your yard. They make plenty of noises that can keep you up at night. Their feces and urine can leave stains and smells that are nearly impossible to get out on your own.
Raccoons can also carry various diseases, such as rabies, and parasites that are harmful to humans and pets.
Lawrenceville Raccoon Removal
Raccoons are most active during the summer months and like to nest in attics as the insulation provides warmth and comfort. A mother raccoon can have 2-5 babies at a time. They are highly aggressive and territorial and will attack if they feel threatened. They have very sharp teeth and claws, so it’s best not to aggravate them.
Unlike other pest control companies, Attic Kings does not use any type of poison as part of its removal process. Our method is to use an exit tunnel system.
By sealing up all other entryways, the exit tunnel acts as the only way for the raccoon to leave the house. The exit tunnel is a one-way system, so the raccoon cannot get back in once it has left. This usually gets the animal out within 1-8 days and does not harm it in any way.
Preventing Raccoons from Returning
While we are proud of how effective our Lawrenceville raccoon removal service is, there are stiff things you can do to prevent them from coming back. Once the raccoons are out of the house or attic, it’s very important that you take these steps to prevent these vermin from coming in again.
These include but are not limited to:
- Keeping food waste and debris away from the house
- Keeping garbage cans sealed or inside, away from raccoons
- Not leaving food outside or even on your porch
- Ensuring that all possible entryways around the house are sealed
- Keeping sheds and garages tightly closed, and locked if applicable.
