How do I get rid of raccoons in my chimney?
Uncapped chimneys are extremely common entry points for raccoons.
Since these chimney spaces are usually dark, warm, and quiet, more like a hollow tree space, the raccoons love it there and can take residence there. To know if you have raccoons in your chimney, look down through the space with a flashlight during the day. If you can’t find spider webs within space, chances are raccoons have been through there.
The best way to get a raccoon out of your chimney is to contact a professional raccoon removal service like Papa Squirrel. We’ll remove and secure the chimney to prevent any future raccoons from making your chimney their home.
How do I get rid of raccoons in my attic?
Raccoons like warm spaces to raise their young, so their preferred areas include attics, chimneys, spaces under decking and porches as well as crawl spaces under the property.
Removal from the atttic is best left up to the professionals at Papa Squirrel, the most common method is to use a one way out trap. They exit but can not return. We will not only identify the points of entry and seal once the removal is completed but we will also take the time to determine if you have a mother raccoon with an active liter.
If you only remove the female her young will almost for sure die without her. We will humanely remove the female and her liter so that they can be relocated where they can continue to grow as a family.
Will raccoons leave on their own?
Once raccoons find a suitable nesting place in your home, it’s usually because they’re looking for a place to raise their young ones. This might take anywhere from eight to ten weeks before they leave on their own “if” they want to leave.
Can raccoons damage my house?
Raccoons are highly destructive animals and can cause thousands of dollars in damages to your property.
