You may have overheard some noise during the night in the ceiling or attic of your Treasure Coast home.

If it wasn’t already clear, I would wager good money that you’ve got a contented raccoon family residing with you.

Also, Treasure Coast FL raccoons are intelligent animals who can truly harm your house and make a bathroom out of your attic. I can’t tell you the variety of phone calls we’ve gotten about raccoons trashing an attic, gnawing through plumbing, and even envious male raccoons unleashing their temper on some young juveniles (not a beautiful sight!).

Raccoons in the Attic

Mama raccoons just love attics. They are the safest locations to bring up their young. Spring is the prime season for young kits to be born. A female raccoon can bring up several juveniles each year. A raccoon in the attic might create all types of damage. They love to chew electric wiring in addition to damaging the roof and interior. They also settle under sheds, in jacuzzis and barns. A shed is typically elevated off the ground and is ideal for raising a family. If there is protection they will seek it!

How to Get Rid of Raccoons in the Treasure Coast area

It’s often a great strategy to get rid of your raccoons by trapping them, preferably through the use of a certified trapping company. We are thoroughly licensed and certified by the state of Florida. Don’t just head to the hardware shop and begin trapping raccoons with whatever they are willing to sell you. We encourage you to engage with Florida’s local wildlife control services

We make sure to make use of humane traps, since the last thing you need is the smell of dead raccoons wafting down from the attic.

Humane traps typically are available in two forms to Treasure Coast residents

  • One way trap doors
  • Two way trap doors

One way traps do a suitable job, yet you do a better job when you utilize a two way door (since you increase your chances of a catch). You want to bait your traps with something yummy. Pet food does the job, yet you may consider a marshmallow too, since it smells tasty to a mother raccoon and its vivid, white color actually stands out in a low visibility attic. You cannot rely on raccoon repellents to get them out. The most effective way of keeping these animals away from your property is to make sure you have no entry points for them in the first place. As soon as your raccoons have actually been caught and removed, it is vital that you discover and secure the entry holes that allowed those critters in to begin with!

Here’s the Raccoon Removal Process we utilize with our clients

  • Set and bait traps
  • Catch the Raccoons living in the attic or crawl space
  • Remove nearby food sources
  • Seal up the entry points and all small openings so they can not return
  • Clean-up the attic (Remove waste, perform odor control, and replace insulation if required)
  • Fix any major damage done to the exterior and interior.
