How Do We Get A Raccoon Family Out Of Your House?
The baby raccoon on the right would have died if the homeowner had gone ahead with his plan to wait until the raccoon in his attic left at night, then seal up the entrance.
- First of all, a mother raccoon would have just frantically made a new entrance to get to her babies, causing even more damage to the house.
- Secondly, if she had failed, then the owner would have the foul odor of rotting dead raccoons in his attic to deal with.
Fortunately, cooler heads prevailed. His wife called Nuisance Wildlife Removal services for a FREE assessment of the situation. We showed the owner that there was indeed a nest of babies in his attic, and that momma had more than one entrance to his house. We went to work by first convincing the mother raccoon that she should not stay any longer. To do this, we sprayed a predator scent, which alerts her to constant danger to her and her babies. In exiting the only route that we had left her, she stepped into a trap we had set.
Once the young family was evicted, we fixed all the places on the home where the raccoons had done damage to get in. Unfortunately, it was also obvious that this was not the first time this house had been used as a raccoon nursery. We ended up having to do a complete attic restoration for this home owner. We pulled out all the old insulation and disinfected the entire attic area, and sprayed for the thousands of fleas we found there. We then replaced all the insulation, and even had some crushed vent work repaired.
By the way, this was covered by his home owner’s insurance.
The raccoons were taken to an animal rehab facility until the babies can fend for themselves in the wild.
