Raccoon Removal

What Can We Do For You ?

Racoons develop their black mask at ten days old and, although we often admire their intelligence and cleverness, they can create serious damages to your house if they decide to live in it. This nocturnal species will prefer to live in warm and dry attics, fireplaces, basements, and under the roof. It’s always recommended to ask the help of professionals for raccoon removal because it’s hard to distinguish between raccoons which have rabies and those which do not.

Our technicians have been specifically trained to quickly identify all possible points of entry for racoons to your home. Their agile paws allow them to penetrate wood, aluminium, air vents, and also to come in through the lighting system. Our technicians will use specific techniques for raccoon removal to move adults and kits humanly and methodically, as it is an efficient and less expensive method. Mother raccoons will be place in heating boxes with their babies to move them to another site in safety.
Capital Wildlife Control’s elimination strategy is humane, safe and reliable. Part of our interventions are devoted to cleaning and treating all contaminated materials that can cause risk to your health. It’s important to work with professionals to eliminate all contamination risks because raccoon faeces often contain worms (baylisascaris procyonis) that can cause serious health problems if they are accidentally ingested. Our technician will advise you on ways to have the best cleaning and repairing strategies like refurbishing the insulation, refurbishing the attic… depending on your particular situation. These steps will help you get back to a safe and enjoyable home for your family.

Raccoons, who we also call the “masked-bandits” are often admired for their intelligence and their cleverness, but these features are also what makes them treacherous for dwellings and businesses. Damages caused by raccoons can cost a lot of money and they weigh between 12 and 20 pounds, making them difficult to remove. Their size and their intelligence makes infestations by them a serious matter.

Raccoons usually wants to nest in fireplaces, basements, and attics, especially in calm spots. Raccoons in the attic is a common problem. They are nocturnal animals, which makes them very disruptive while homeowners are trying to sleep.

  • Raccons have agile paws, meaning they can open jars, garbage bins and even door locks. They are also strong enough to rip shingles, soffits, iron coating and even aluminium. Mother raccoons are willing to do everything to reach their babies when they are apart. Babies are really curious and can be especially harmful when they start to move around.
  • Raccoon maternal instinct is really strong and if separated from their babies they can do a great amount of damage. Raccoons will even be willing to gnaw at electric cables to reach them.
  • Electric cables gnawed are a serious risk for fires, especially if they are located close to flammable materials like wood or insulation.
