Keep Hearing Loud Noises In Your Attic? You May Have Racoons Living There

If you are hearing noises coming from your attic this could be due to many things. One of these things is racoons. If you have these animals in your attic, then you need to take steps to get them out before they cause a lot of damage. Fortunately, there are many ways you can do this, two of which are listed below.

Determine If There are Babies

If you have a mother racoon in your attic that has tiny babies, there is not much you can do right now. You need to leave them alone until the babies are old enough to venture out on their own. If you remove the mother, the babies will then be orphans and would likely die. If the mother racoon realizes someone is getting into the attic in many cases, they will move the babies on their own to a safer location.

Go up in the attic to see if you can find the babies. You may not be able to because the mother racoon will work very hard to hide them carefully. If you cannot see them, you will likely be able to hear them. If you do see or hear babies, then stay out of the attic for a few weeks and then check again.

Call a Professional

If you only see adult racoons in your attic you should not try to remove them on your own. This is because they may harm you. Instead, contact a wildlife removal company to do this job for you. The contractor will inspect your attic to find where the racoons are hiding. Once they determine this, they will set up special traps so they can get the racoons out. Once the racoons are trapped, the contractor will take them to a safe place and set them free. In some cases, contractors set up bright lights to get the racoons to leave on their own.

If the racoons caused any damage to your attic, some wildlife removal companies may repair this damage for you. If not, they can give you the name and number of a contractor to help you. For example, you may need to replace insulation in the attic or replace wiring if you have any in your attic. The contractor will then find where the racoons are entering your home so you can take measures to seal these places up.
