Animal Control Solutions provides raccoon removal, raccoon control, and raccoon pest control in Arlington, Virginia.
The Raccoon can adapt to human environments easily and usually by choice. In human environments raccoons can adapt easily due to the abundance of food and shelter. Humans provide food sources such as bird feeders, trash cans, and pet food bowls that are replenished regularly. Urban landscapes provide attractive nuts, buds, and fruits from trees that raccoons will favor. Once a raccoon has found a prevalent food source it will look for a nesting or den site that is relatively close to that food source. Your home is the nesting or den site due to increases in urbanization or land development in raccoon inhabited areas, a decline in large native trees in established neighborhoods, and the overpopulation of raccoons in these areas does not help. The raccoon will look for a spot that has the least resistance to enter your home. Raccoons are very good climbers. They will use their strong teeth and muscles to tear into just about anything on your house looking for a home. Gable vents, attic fans, rotten wood behind your gutter or in your soffit, loose foundation vents, and low laying decks are a few locations. Once the den is established they will start to build their nest. This is when the noise begins in the attic. Their nocturnal traits will keep you up with constant travel. The noise really gets good during breeding season or when the young kits turn your attic into a jungle gym. The most important things that you should know about raccoons in your home and your health are the risk of fire due to chewed electrical wires and the biohazard and odor issues from their droppings and urine. As long as we continue to urbanize, cut down native nesting trees, and provide an abundance of food to the Raccoon they will continue to adapt to human environments and pose a threat to homes and human health.
Professional grade single door live capture traps are used to trap raccoons damaging landscapes. These traps are placed next to the damage areas on your property. When raccoons are living in a fire place or attic we will physically remove the adults and young or exclude them with professional eviction fluid. The eviction fluid is designed to flush the raccoons from the den without physical interaction. Once the raccoons are removed, we Repair the hole where they are entering or install a chimney cap so that it will not happen again.
