Raccoon Problem: How To Remove From Home And Prevent. St Joseph Mo

Have you ever wondered what that sound is late at night? Sounds of animal chattering and large animal walking to and fro. Too big for a rodent, you might think. Maybe a squirrel? Nope. Just sounds too big for any squirrel. Raccoon you might think.  Well, it is time to remove this Raccoon problem. Use this as a blueprint on how to control Raccoons and get rid of your Raccoon problem from your home. This can also be used as a guide on how to hire a pest company such as ours at All Friendly.

WHERE?

How did they get in you might ask yourself? Well, a Raccoon must enter and exit through your home at some area. Use the pictures below as a guide on how to control Raccoons from entering your home.

Foundation

Raccoons look for easy entry areas around the foundation of the home. These areas can be easily noted around utility penetrations or the not so easy areas around decks or patios. Raccoons will enter these areas to gain access underneath crawl spaces or the basement of the home. Once Raccoons gain access through these areas they are able to access almost any area of the home, even the attic!

Attic Vents

Most of these type of vents have very little if any screening at all. Quite often installed with bug screening. It is easy entry for any Raccoon to access these areas.

Roof Vents

These areas are easily overlooked. The power vent pictured on the left has a small mesh screening underneath the aluminum dome. The Raccoons simply push the mesh aside and gain clearance into the attic. The typical clearance between the roof shingles and this vent is only 4-6 inches. Raccoons can squeeze into this tight opening no problem!

Chimney Area

The flue pictured currently harbors a chimney swift, but Raccoons love them! Especially during the Spring of the year when female Raccoons raise their young. It is amazing that Raccoons can climb this 9 inch by 9 inch flue.

SAFETY CONCERNS AND RACCOON DAMAGE?

How much damage can Raccoons do? What safety considerations should you be aware of?

If left unresolved, Raccoons can do hundreds of thousands of dollars in damage to your home. The picture on the left resembles a HVAC vent that was torn up by Raccoons in St. Joseph Missouri. Fortunately for this homeowner, All Friendly was able to spot this damage and repairs were made in order to save a costly expense in heating and cooling costs.

Raccoons also pose a safety hazard. Raccoons can create latrines in the attic area which should be professionally removed. Raccoon feces have been known to carry Baylisascaris, or commonly referred to as”Raccoon Roundworm”. We typically recommend that these wastes¬†be professionally removed by a company such as ours at All Friendly.

WHAT ABOUT REPAIRS?

Repairs should always be made after a successful removal program has ended. We suggest following your local city, state, and federal guidelines on how to remove a Raccoon from your home. Your home may need a variety of different repairs. It is important that the materials you use are high quality considering the strength that Raccoons possess. Your home may need: chimney cap, roof vent cover, louver vent/gable vent screen, and underground porch/deck wiring.

HIRE A PROFESSIONAL

This just might be one of the easiest ways a homeowner can solve a Raccoon problem. A pest professional such as ours at All Friendly should be able to: identify and diagnose¬†if a¬†Raccoon problem exists to the home, initiate a humane removal program, professionally clean up and sanitize feces or waste deposits, and follow-up with a¬†permanent repair that even Raccoons won’t be able to¬†penetrate.

All Friendly services the greater metropolitan area of St. Joseph Missouri, St Joseph Mo, Saint Joseph Mo, and surrounding communities in Northwest Missouri. All Friendly can be reached at 816-279-MOLE (6653) or visit on the web at www.allfriendly.net

Scary Animal Noises From Attic Area Of Home. What Is It? What To Do?

It all starts with a pitter¬†patter in the late evening hour. A hard days work followed by peaceful rest, ruined! “Maybe it is the furnace or water heater”, I suggest. I’ll go back to sleep. There is much to do tomorrow. The foreign sound starts back up again. This time the sound escalates into a loud bump. “That’s no water heater!” I acclaim. The¬†sound then travels across the ceiling. My eyes are enlightened. It’s an animal! And it’s walking around in my home! The sound is real.¬†The animal is real. What to do?¬†Who¬†to call?¬†The animal travels across the ceiling, and then suddenly stops.

Late night sounds can be a nightmare all in themselves,¬†add to that¬†the¬†constant worry and frustration of what it is and how it got there; not to mention the damage the animal has caused to the home. With our help at All Friendly we can get you back to a peaceful night’s rest and living in the comfort of your own home. Here is a few tips on what to do in case an animal decides to invade your home.

What Animal Could It Be?

Many homes are invaded by many different types of pests. These include: Raccoons, Mice, Rats, Squirrels, Bats, Snakes, and Opossums. Identifying which pest the home has can require some detective work.

1. Sound

Narrowing the target pest down to the sound of the noise can be helpful. For instance, a Raccoon will often make a large walking sound compared to the sound of a mouse quickly scampering across the ceiling with a slight scurry noise. Snakes can be obvious, imagine the static sound a television makes, it can be slight, long and drawn out. Bats can portray a flutter at times followed by a loud high-pitched squeaking sound. Squirrels are active during the daylight hours and at times the sound can be constant.

2. Visual

The easiest way to identify the pest is to actually see it. Nocturnal pests such as Raccoons and Bats come out at night. Bats can often be seen leaving the home around their entry points around dusk to feed on insects. With the help of a flashlight Raccoons eyes glow once spotted with the beam of the light. During daylight hours, Squirrels can be seen running along the gutter and then suddenly disappearing around their entry point into the home.

What To Do?

Here are many different ways to identify the pest problem.

Rodents: Look for rodent evidence in pantry areas of home. Chewings on food related items and rodent scat is a good indicator.

Bats: Simply position yourself and a family member on both sides of the home around dusk to see if bats evade the home.

Raccoons: Raccoons are good climbers and often times forget to wipe their feet before they climb onto the home. Look for paw prints and smear markings on gutters or utility outlets around the home.

Snake Skins From Attic Prove To Be Snake Problem

Squirrels: Look for tree limbs that are too close to the home. If the limbs are within 10 feet of the home then you may have a squirrel problem. Squirrels also need an adequate food source. Oak and Walnut trees are particularly great food providers for squirrels and may increase the odds of the sound being a squirrel.

Snakes: Snakes shed their skin quite often. Look for snake skins in the basement or crawl space area and also along the foundation of home.

 The Grim Reality: Animal Damage To Home

There are many different types of damage that nuisance pests leave behind. Structural damage to the home such as Raccoons damaging roof vents or roofing material such as shingles. Squirrels will often times chew on fascia and ruin fascia boards and water damage can occur to soffits if not replaced. Bats and Raccoons will also leave behind their feces which can result in an odor and also stain areas of the home such as ceilings. Squirrels can chew on electrical wiring which can result in an electrical fire.

Raccoons Are Strong. One Raccoon Pulled Up These Shingles And Damaged The Roof To Gain Entry

Fixing The Problem?

Once the target pest has been identified the real leg work begins. We typically suggest calling a professional such as¬†our professionals¬†at All Friendly to help with this process. Our certified pest professionals can quickly lay out a step by step approach to humanely removing the pest and follow-up with a permanent repair. We certainly wouldn’t want¬†the homeowner¬†to make any mistakes during the removal process. Failure to completely and humanely remove these pests can result in greater damage to the home and leaving an animal trapped inside resulting in an inhumane animal death and further frustration for the homeowner.
