Raccoons may seem cute and cuddly, but in reality they are a nuisance if they enter your home.
Evidence of a Raccoon
If you hear noises in the attic, find “scat” (feces) around your foundation, or see structural damage, raccoons may have moved in. Raccoons look for dry, warm places to den and get protection from weather. They are experts at finding small openings that give them access to your attic, crawlspace, or chimney.
If raccoons have moved into your home, Peachtree wildlife professionals can safely and humanely remove them.
Protecting Your Family from Racoons
Raccoons cannot only cause damage to your home, but they may also carry parasites that can be passed to humans through contact with the animal’s feces. Although it is not common, raccoons can carry rabies.
Peachtree’s Removal Process
No need for you to crawl into tight places to meet your new tenants – call Peachtree and have trained wildlife experts deal with relocating them.
- When you call Peachtree, a professional will examine your property damage, determine what kind of animals are getting into your house, and how they gain access. A detailed quote explains the process and cost.
- Eviction involves setting traps, which are checked (by law) at least every 24 hours. This humane process ensures the animal is removed quickly, does not suffer from injuries, and quickly has access to food and water. While you might think you can buy a trap at the hardware store and do this yourself, our technicians are trained to handle the animals so that they are not harmed – and neither are you. Trust the experts. It is easy for wildlife to transmit diseases to you.
- Next, the damage to your home will be repaired to prevent more tenants from moving in.
- Decontamination is a final, but very important step so that you are left with a clean, healthy home. Urine and feces cannot be left because of the threat of disease, as well as attracting other pests.
A Note On Staying Away from Raccoons
It is important that your children know to stay away from wild animals, like raccoons, even (and especially) if they seem tame – this can be a sign of illness. Wild animals are unpredictable and can be dangerous.
