Raccoon Trapping, Exclusion, Removal

Raccoons are very adaptable animals, and they have quickly learned that homes are the perfect places to raise their young. In case a raccoon has been active in your home, it only a matter of time before they figure out your attic or crawl space. One of the common entry points of raccoons is the chimney.

To prevent raccoons from gaining access into your home, your roofs and chimney need to be maintained regularly. This is because raccoons can easily access rooftops by climbing on branches close to your house. Raccoon Control offers exclusion, removal and trapping services on Etobicoke area.

Sealing a raccoon inside will cause them to go on a destructive rage especially when they feel scared or panic.  We also offer exclusion services to ensure all entry points are locked off from outside so that, once they get out of the property, they do not get access back in.

Soffits are The Most Common Raccoon Entry Points

Have you spotted some raccoons on your roof recently? Why would they be strolling upon your roof all the time? It is definitely not because they have found a food source on it or use your roof as a play location. The most likely reasons you are seeing are living in your attic. Easily noticeable thanks to a black mask and a tail which has rings, raccoons are nocturnal animals which love to break into homes and eat anything they come across. They are omnivorous so their diet covers a wide range of food types. Raccoons can establish a home in your attic by breaking in through the soffit. How is this possible and why do they choose this location?

What is the soffit?

The soffit is the surface at the bottom of your house eave. Soffits are mostly made of vinyl or aluminum. They are constructed in a track design and are held in place by J-channels that are fixed to the eave and wall too. It is important to note that there are homes which have soffits made of wood. In most cases, soffits have some ventilation in place. It takes the form of perforated aluminum, a strip of screen along the soffit’s length or vents which are separately positioned in the wood. Soffits are generally vulnerable to entry by animals. Since they lead right into the attic, animals love to use the soffits to enter and live in your house. One of these animals is the raccoon.

How raccoons get into your house using the soffit

Most soffits are made of flimsy aluminum or vinyl. Hence, raccoons simply tear them right open. They can also chew, break or claw open the screens on the soffit. In other cases, the raccoons can access your house through the area where the roof and soffit meet. In most cases, this spot is not sealed properly. Thus, raccoons can also use this space to get into your attic. Once inside, they quickly builds nests.

If you hear some scratching or cooing in your attic, you definitely have a resident racoon. Do not attempt to get rid of it on your own. Simply call a raccon removal Etobicoke expert to come over and remove raccoons and their nest of babies. Our professional will also seal any areas in the soffit which have been destroyed by the raccoon. This will prevents further infestation of your attic.

These animals are nocturnal so activity is mostly confined to early evening through to just before dusk. Raccoons also make thumping rather than scurrying noises because of their large size when walking across the attic.

Apart from the damages, the racoons may be causing such as tearing up insulation, chewing support beams and ripping duct work, raccoons pose a serious health risk. The animal droppings and urine spread diseases including leptospirosis and raccoon round worm.

How to Keep Raccoons Out of Your Attic

How to keep raccoons out of the attic. Raccoons attract love and hate in equal measure. They look cute when being watched from afar but are greatly annoying when they find their way to your attic. They cause damage to a property like electrical wiring and insulation and cause irritating noises and odours. There is no need to panic anymore as there are several ways on how to keep raccoons out of your attic and the best way to do so is to raccoon-proof your house. Raccoons like living in dark places. You can, therefore, keep them out of your attic by installing a portable light and leaving it on. Bright light makes them develop a feeling of vulnerability. This scares them from your attic. It is, however, important to ensure that the light is kept in a safe place and does not generate much heat to avoid a fire. If possible use LED lights. 

However, the best way to prevent raccoons from getting to your attic is by securing it. This can be achieved by ensuring that attic windows are always closed and locked. You should also ensure that all potential entry points to the attic are sealed. These include cracks and holes. Install chimney caps and cover vents with mesh screens. Weak spots on the roof should be identified and repaired as soon as possible. It is therefore advisable for you to be carrying out a regular inspection of your house.

Keeping raccoons away from your attic also involves preventing them from getting into your compound in the first place. This can be achieved through sealing points that may be used by the raccoons to enter your compound. Ensure that your bins have tight-fitting lids. Clear up garbage and feed your pet indoors. This is because raccoons are usually attracted by food. When a raccoon gets to your attic, it is best to call our professional removal and proofing solutions in Etobicoke.

Raccoon Prevention services

Raccoons are known to look for shelter in attics, garages, and sheds. While what often drives them to this location is warmth, they are a good chance that they are sheltering in your property because of food. Some common food source options are garbage heaps and trash cans, the food you leave out for a stray cat or dog or even bird and squirrel feeders. In case they provide sustenance, and they are unguarded, it’s a welcome sign for these furry creatures.

They say prevention is better than cure, same applies with raccoons. It would cost much less money and effort keeping them out than getting rid of them. For a good job, contact your local Raccoon Control service company in Etobicoke and have them inspect your property. They will be in a better position to advise you on the best practices to keep these critters out. Here are a few methods you can use on your own:

  • Cut branches close to your roof
  • Avoid leaving your trash cans and dumpsters unsecured
  • Seal off all entry points

If you have done the following and still have raccoons in your property, give us a call.

Why You Should Hire a Raccoon Removal Professional

Evicting raccoons from the attic is straightforward but hardly easy even for seasoned professionals. A major concern is raccoon babies in the attic. The animals break into houses primarily to breed so it is safe to assume that there is a litter in the den. Sealing the babies inside guarantees they’ll die of dehydration and starvation. The babies are most likely tucked away inside a wall void, duct or other hard-to-reach area and need to be removed by hand.

Raccoon feces and urine carry disease and contain pheromones that may attract other wildlife to the empty den. Cleaning and disinfecting the attic is all part of the removal process and is difficult to do safely without proper training, chemicals and equipment. Some of these diseases are airborne and may be inhaled accidentally during cleaning.

A wildlife removal company in Ontario takes care of the eviction, cleaning, repairs and wildlife-proofing to keep the animals out permanently. Ask for a warranty of at least two years before hiring.
