Raccoons in the Attic
Occasionally it can seem like there’s a whole herd of elephants running around in your loft. “What’s that?” Can it be aliens in your loft? Although it’s most likely not aliens in your loft, it sure can sound like it.
Your loft may is the perfect place for raccoons to bed down, make nests, and have litters of baby raccoons. They can get in straight through your roof, or they can find areas on your furnace, vents, or chimney to get in the attic. As soon as they’ve made their residence in your loft, they could cause considerable damage.
The most effective way of eliminating raccoons in the loft is prevention done by a Raccoon Removal company. Make certain all loft windows are shut and secured, inspect annually for weak spots on your roof and openings in your eaves. If they’re already there, there are quite a few ways of removing them.
The best way to remove raccoons from the attic inexpensively, is to place traps. These are little traps, which you can lure and trap a raccoon in it without hurting the animal. After you’ve captured the raccoon (or raccoons), then contact wildlife control to get them removed in the loft securely. Wildlife control will probably move the raccoons to a location where they are not likely to find their way back to your home.
If you find too many raccoons, or you can’t seem to catch them with the traps, you might want to think about calling a professional service. They’ll come to your house, evaluate the circumstance, and discover a way to remove the animals in the most humane way possible.
After all of the raccoons are removed from your attic, you’ll want to do repairs and maintenance work. You’ll need to make sure there are no other ways for those raccoons to re-enter your house, and do routine inspections to keep your house pest-free.
