Raccoons can be a real nuisance, they can tear open your exterior wall to find shelter in your attic and once they
are inside, they'll rip open your air ducts and leave droppings all over your insulation. Plus,
their droppings can contain roundworm and can infect people.
Our techs are highly trained and will take care of the problem for you so that you do not have to put yourself or your family at risk.
Dealing with these trash eaters is no easy tasks, especially in Tennessee. Out here, raccoons have nasty diseases such as rabies and their droppings
can spread roundworm. That is why, when you give us a call we make sure we know exactly what we are dealing with.
It is often possible to determine what type of animal problem you have just by the noises they make alone. Raccoons are one the largest wildlife animals that pester Nashville residents. That means that when they are scurring around in your attic, they will make loud or heavy thumping noises rather than light scurrying that rats typically make.
Additionally raccoons are nocturnal, this means that you are more likely to hear the noises at night rather than in the morning. They'll typically start to wake up and make noise right at dusk and then they will go quite for a couple of hours as they go out look for food. Sometime in the middle of the night or early morning you'll hear them again as they are returning to their cozy home.
We'll look for signs of these critters so such as structural damage to your home, droppings, and common food sources.
Most people want to remove raccoons just because of the noises they are making at night, others don't like the idea
of a wild creature living in their home but the real reason that raccoons need to pack up shop and hit the road is
because sooner or later they will start to cause damage in the home. This could be in the drywall, ducts, vents electrical,
or even with the insulation.
When you give us a call, after our initial inspection, we will remove the single raccoon or the family of raccoons living your Tennessee home. We have the protective equipment, baits, and traps that will clear up the problem in a matter of days. We will then take the critters and remove them from your property in the most humane way possible.
To understand how to prevent these animals we first need to understand their habits. Raccoons are far more common in
cities and suburbs than they are in undeveloped natural areas, we like to call them urban animals instead of wild animals.
These animals have developed to be co-dependent on our urban cities and that makes it extremely hard to keep them out of your home and yard. The best thing you can do to prevent them from picking your home is to make it less desirable to these critters. That means that we need to seal up all entry points around your home, attic, and basement. Then you want to make sure that your trash is kept in the garage and out of the way so that they can't find a food source on your property. Then you'll want to check if you have bird feeders, a pond with fish, shelter under your deck, etc. The key is to eliminate the things that raccoons find comfort in.
If the situation is dire, then we can discuss installing additional measures such as fences, motion sensitive water sprayers, and other devices that are designed to keep the raccoons out.
