Raccoon Removal from an Attic

We have been removing a lot of raccoons from attics lately and for the most part it is pretty straight forward.  Raccoons have a sweet tooth and appeal to it and the battle is half over.

We were just recently hired for raccoon removal from a church in Hamlet IN. What had happened was the church had caught a raccoon this summer and had relocated it about 3 miles away. A couple of weeks ago they had the soffit damaged by the raccoon repaired. Then they started seeing damage to the ceiling in the sanctuary.  That’s when they called me.

I’m thinking straight forward again, right? Not exactly. After a week of trying different baits and different kind of traps I was no closer to catching him than day one.  I could not get this raccoon take any interest in any kind of bait that I was offering.

What I ended up doing was removing the repair to the soffit and set a trap in such a way that he had to go through the trap to exit the building through the hole he was accustomed to. It worked!

I think it might be a safe bet that this raccoon had been trapped in a baited trap before. Possibly even the one that was removed from the same church this summer.

Squirrel Removal from Attics

Its been a busy couple of weeks doing squirrel removal out of attics in Lake and Porter County. We got squirrels out of houses in Gary and Valparaiso last week. In one case we got six squirrels from one home, in another just two. Every situation is different. Squirrels like to enter attics because they are warm and safe from predators there. In both houses they had chewed holes in the soffit and gained entry. If you have squirrels in the attic or walls of your home you should calls us. We are knowledgeable professionals that can solve your squirrel problem efficiently.

We quote a “flat rate” to remove the raccoons and squirrels from your attic and make sure they can’t return. Some companies charge per animal. You don’t know how many animals are up there. Call us for pricing!

Just because we specialize from removing animals from attic doesn’t mean we don’t take care of the rest. Give us a call for any wildlife pest exclusion jobs like ground hogs, skunks living under your deck or moles digging up your yard.  We would love to take care of that for you as well.

Get rid of squirrels and call us for all your  wildlife control needs today!
