Attic Deodorization and Insulation Restoration

Raccoons In Attic

Have you been hearing strange noises in your house at night? Are you concerned that something is living inside your attic? This can be a scary and concerning experience for homeowners, especially when you don't know what the noise is or where it's coming from. If you have been hearing strange noises, especially at night, these are signs of a wildlife or rodent infestation.

Wild animals such a squirrels, raccoons, possums, rodents and even bats can move into your home's attic or crawl space. While you are terrified in your bed, trying to get your rest; these animals are throwing a party in your attic! They quickly make your home theirs; they will nest, mate, have babies, poop, pee, eat and then go to sleep peacefully. All while your pulling your hair out trying to figure out what to do.

The types of noises you may be hearing can range from chewing vibrations, hard thumping, scratching or even worse; moans, cries and growling. Bats do not make as much noise, however you may hear very light, yet high pitched squeaking noises. If you're hearing these type of noises and you believe that you have a wildlife infestation here are some tips to help you out, so you know exactly what you need to do from here.

First things first, you need to inspect your entire property and look for any entry points. This includes the roof top, soffit breaks, attic vents and even under the home. If there are animals nesting in your attic, they got in there somehow, someway. With larger animals these spots will be easy to point out and you will clearly see the damage where they were entering and exiting. However, with smaller animals such as rats and bats, it may be more difficult to locate these entry points. You will need to look for any and all holes that are larger than a quarter. Also with rats and bats you will see black marks around any entry points. Once you have located entry points, you will need to make the necessary repairs. Every home owner's situation will be different; repairs can range from simply patching a hole, all the way to replacing an entire roof!

After fixing any damage or access points, now is when you will need to trap and remove the animals. You can purchase live traps for larger animals and you can purchase rat traps for the rats. However, when it comes to bats, it is highly suggested that you hire a licensed professional wildlife trapper to remove the bats, as there are strict laws and regulations in place to protect this important species. If you remove the bats incorrectly or at the wrong time of year, you can be hit with heavy fines. So, when it comes to bats please make sure to hire a professional animal removal company.

As far as the other animals, you can easily remove these animals yourself, if you feel comfortable doing so. Be very careful as wild animals are known to carry rabies and rabies is a deadly disease, with no known cure. If you do not feel comfortable trapping and removing the wildlife, there are plenty of companies that offer wildlife removal services. What these companies will do is provide an inspection. They will locate the damaged areas and entry points for you, find out what type of animal it is, set up the traps and remove the animals for you.

Then the wildlife trapping company will offer an exclusion service, where they will seal off the holes and repair the damage that is allowing the wild animals access to your home. These are all things that you can do yourself, but I always recommend hiring a professional because the company should offer you a warranty. In fact, if they do not offer a warranty do not go with that company, as they are not professionals. Professionals will always stand by their work and offer renewable warranties. Also check for reviews online before hiring a wildlife trapping company.

Once you have controlled the wildlife problem, it's important to perform some follow up work to prevent the problem from happening again. Here are some tips: trim away all tree and bush branches that are close to your home. Animals can follow the branches on to your roof top. Remove all dog and cat food from outside after the animals are finished eating; as this is one of the biggest culprits to bring wildlife to your home. Another culprit is the bird feeder, as rats and squirrels love the bird seed. If you've been hearing things in your attic, I hope you find this information helpful and I wish you luck in getting rid of the wildlife problem.

Skunk Trap

There are many sicknesses that humans can contract from nuisance wildlife droppings. If there has been a prolonged infestation of raccoons, bats, birds, mice, or any other wildlife, it is a good chance your attic needs to be restored. After the fecal matter of these nuisance animals sits in your attic over an extended period of time, it can start to develop spores of bacteria. Wildlife scent left in the attic will also attract more nuisance animals in the future. Usually 1-3 weeks of infestation can require the attic to be restored due to damages and wildlife scent. The offending nuisance wildlife animals should be trapped or excluded before attic clean up takes place. If you ever decide to inspect your own attic for wildlife droppings, make sure to get a quality respirator to avoid berating in any harmful material. If you are a homeowner with attic restoration questions, feel free to email me about your problems.

Best Skunk Bait

It is undeniable that many find raccoons to be cute. They are clever animals, and have their human-like hands and bandit masks. However, when those cute animals begin trying to share your home, it may be time for animal control/removal. These pests can take up residence in your attic or even your chimney, and may threaten your domestic pets.

Those adorable little hands are used to tear at your roof's shingles in order to gain access to the attic. Not only is this a late night disturbance, because raccoons are nocturnal, but it's bad for your roof, too. They'll also take advantage of an open garage, an abandoned car, or they'll try to build a home under your deck.

The major problem is that raccoons can carry parasites and viruses. For instance, most raccoons carry roundworms. Roundworm eggs can remain live in the feces and can be transmitted to humans upon contact. Additionally, a good percentage of urban raccoons are carriers of the rabies virus which can also be transmitted to humans through bites and scratches.

Since it is very possible that these animals will carry some diseases your pets, or even you and your family can potentially be harmed. If something has been near droppings, it might be infected with roundworm. If your dog has been around the secretions he could catch distemper, or if the animals fight, rabies.

Even if a raccoon isn't living somewhere in or around your house, you may still hear it rummaging in your garbage cans late at night. If your cat or dog investigates, a territorial fight might occur. Depending on the size of your dog and the strength of your cat, the raccoon could win that fight.

Another problem that can arise is with regard to your yard. Cleaning up spilled garbage is frustrating, but these animals can also tear up your lawn and garden searching for food and grubs. Locking garbage can lids and proper fencing can help, but it won't eliminate the problem.

The damage to pets and your home can be costly, both emotionally and with regard to repair expenses. This is why it is important to contact a professional for animal control removal. Professionals know exactly what to do, and can take the necessary steps to make sure the animals are removed properly and humanly and also make sure that the animals wont come back. When the raccoon is trapped and removed from your area, it is permanently relocated, and then you, your pets, and your home will be safe.

You removed the animals from the attic, but are you finished yet? Nuisance wildlife in your attic can create problems many homeowners never think of. These animals can carry ectoparasites, which after the wildlife host is evicted, may move inside the home looking for a new host—YOU! Bat bugs, mites, ticks and fleas are just some of the ectoparasites you need to be concerned about. Mice in the attic, bats in the attic or various other vistors are notorious for bringing these pests in.

If you've had raccoons living in your attic, it's a good idea to have the attic cleaned. Raccoons leave their waste behind when they inhabit an attic. Sometimes there's a specific raccoon latrine, and most of the poop is piled up in one spot. Sometimes it's spread out all over the attic. Same goes for urine as well. Sometimes it's concentrated in an area, sometimes spread all over the place. The poop is easy to pick up and remove, as in the above photo, because the droppings are large. But the urine soaks into the insulation or even the sheetrock (drywall) or wood in the attic. And not all feces or urine will be accessible to remove by hand. That's when it's important to clean up and properly fog the attic to eliminate the odor and potential unsanitary conditions.
