Professional Wildlife Trappers
Most raccoons can be removed from an attic by using a live trap. It’s never a good idea to just go to the hardware store and buy any traps that look like they will do the job.
It is best to leave the job to the professionals. We at AAAC Wildlife Removal are a highly reputable and highly recommended wildlife removal company in the New Port Richey area. Our staff has received extensive training to ensure that all of our raccoon control methods are safe for both humans, your home, and the animals themselves.
Humane traps generally come in two forms:
- One way trap doors
- Two-way trap doors
One-way trap doors do a decent job of catching the raccoon, but two-way doors are generally more effective since raccoons will be more likely to go inside the trap if they can see through the other side.
Our Raccoon Removal Process
Raccoon removal requires attention to detail and knowledge of the animals’ behavior. Our raccoon removal professionals have been trained in animal behavior and biology, so they know how to deal with a variety of situations.
We use safe and humane methods to get rid of raccoons in your home. This is our procedure for removing raccoons from your home or property.
- Set Traps
- Remove Raccoon
- Make home less attractive to wild animals
- Seal entry holes
- Clean attic
- Repair any damage done
We set the traps in areas we know raccoons frequent, including places we’ve seen droppings or damage. Once we set the trap and get it baited with a lure such as peanut butter, we check it every day to make sure nothing’s been caught.
Remove the raccoon
Once the raccoon is captured, we’ll remove them so that they aren’t able to return to your property.
Reduce the appeal of your home to wild animals
We make sure that there are no food or water sources for wild animals nearby so that they won’t be tempted to come back into your home.
Seal all entry points
We seal up any gaps, holes, or crevices that might be used as a point of access by animals to get into your attic. This is done with wire meshes and caulking.
Clean up the attic
We’ll remove droppings and debris that the raccoons may have left behind. We clean up the mess so that it won’t create a health hazard for you or your family members.
Repair wildlife damage
After clean-up, we’ll fix any damage both inside and outside your home that was caused by the raccoon. This includes roof damage, soffits, and fascia boards.
Wildlife Removal and Pest Control
Poisoning raccoons to rid them of their presence is cruel and can lead to more serious problems. Pests that are poisoned will die and decompose inside your home or building structure. Sometimes you won’t even notice that an animal is dead until several days later. This will cause a horrible odor in your home.
A dying animal may also be able to crawl into difficult-to-reach places, and then die. This makes it even more difficult to remove them. This will cause the need to call an animal control professional that may use a variety of methods and tools in order to remove the dead animal carcass from your home or property.
Our wildlife experts will never use poisons and will instead use humane trapping methods to resolve any raccoon problems you might be having. Many animal removal companies don’t have the experience to deal with these animals. They may even cause more damage than the original problem.
Raccoon repellents sold in the market almost never work. These products claim to repel raccoons from your home. However, most of these products have very limited effects on raccoons as the animals can simply adapt to the noises and smells.
They can even cause harm to pets and humans. The best way to repel raccoons is to make sure they don’t have access to your house and that there isn’t anything attracting them to your property.
Signs of Raccoon Infestation
You can tell if there are raccoons living in your yard. Sightings of droppings or the animal itself, especially if they are seen hanging around your home is a sure sign that you have an infestation.
- Unpleasant smell of droppings
- Damage to your home’s exterior
- Strange noises
- Tipped over garbage bins
- Raccoon tracks
- Missing pet food
- Pets behaving strangely
Droppings that leave an unpleasant odor
Raccoons leave behind waste which will eventually decompose and smell. You should always check your yard for raccoon droppings at night. This will give you an indication that there is an infestation.
Exterior damage to your home
Sharp teeth and claws are the hallmarks of raccoons. They can cause serious damage to your home’s exterior if they find entry points. They will tear off anything from aluminum siding to wood and plastic vents in order to get inside your home.
Raccoons are night-shifting, so it’s possible that you have an infestation. As well as chewing, gnawing, and scratching, raccoons can also make a lot of noises.
Trash strewn around the yard
Raccoons love to rummage through garbage cans and bags when looking for food. They will tip over the can, scatter the contents all over your yard and even tear up bags in order to get what they want.
One of the easiest ways to spot a raccoon problem is by looking for their footprints in your yard or garden. Large paw prints are often left behind by raccoons. They have five toes on their front feet, and four on the back.
Were you aware that Raccoons have very sensitive hands that almost act as a second set of eyes?
Missing pet food
Raccoons can eat almost anything and are an omnivore. They especially love pet food and are often attracted to yards where pets are fed outdoors.
Did you know that Raccoons are omnivorous?
Pets acting strangely
When a wild animal approaches, pets will often behave strangely. They can become aggressive, scared, or even try to attack the animal.
Re-insulation and Clean Up of Attic
Attic restoration starts when it is established that there are no other animals present in the attic. Droppings are the first thing we’ll clean up and sanitize as they can contain the infectious raccoon roundworm.
Most of the time, insulation will need to be replaced even if it is not visibly damaged. After all other precautions have been taken, it should be replaced with a new layer.
We will clean up your attic of raccoon waste, debris, and nesting materials to make sure that no harmful bacteria are left behind. Qualified professionals are the ones who should clean up raccoon waste as they can carry a variety of bacterias, including E.coli, hepatitis, salmonellosis, and hepatitis.

Wild Animal Damage Repair
After cleanup is complete, we will repair any damage done by the raccoons. This includes ripped siding on your house or shed, chewed through wood trim around doors and windows, etc. We can also replace insulation that has been damaged so badly that it needs to be replaced completely.
We will seal any holes found behind panels that have been chewed by raccoons and then disinfect the area. If there are gaps that allow wildlife to pass through, they will be sealed and covered.
We will also fix any damage to the vinyl siding, gutters, and downspouts if raccoons have chewed through them or turned them into a source of water leakage onto your roofing structure.
