Raccoons are adorable creatures on TV and in cartoons, they lose their cuteness quickly when they are destroying your property. Many people in Fairfield and New Haven counties have problems with pest raccoons. They are noisy and love to get into things like your trash cans. They are nocturnal animals so they cause the most trouble at night. Many residents wake up to noises or messes before calling us. If you are experiencing this at your home, we can help. When you call to schedule a consultation we will come inspect your property and offer you an estimate and a plan for removing these masked creatures from your home or yard.


Dangers of Raccoons

Raccoons are dangerous for your family and your pets. They can be very aggressive animals especially when they feel threatened. It is not safe for your pets or you to approach them. They are usually around to find food, water or shelter. If your property offers those things, they will likely stay and begin to nest. We frequently find them nesting under porches, sheds or other out buildings. Once nesting happens they are not easy to get rid of. You will definitely need professionals to step in. We are well versed on all laws concerning trapping and removal of animals and raccoons are no exception. We use safe, humane methods to rid your property of these pests.

Raccoons will not stop at your yard. If they can gain access to your roof, they will more than likely find a way into your comfortable attic. They can get through building materials with surprising ease. Shingles, soffits and vents are all vulnerable to these creatures and their sharp claws. After they make their way into the attic the damages continue. Your insulation will be used for nesting and damaged by droppings and urine. Remember, if your attic has become their home, it has also become their bathroom. Many times insulation, drywall and wood will need to be replaced after they have been removed from the space. Again, you do not want to attempt this on your own! We are trained to safely remove them. Call NCS to schedule a consultation as soon as you think you have raccoons anywhere on your property.

Animal Proofing

One of the most important parts of our job is exclusion. We will not stop at removing the unwanted wildlife, we will treat your property to prevent them from getting back in. This is another way our training benefits you. We know where to look for vulnerable entry points and can seal them off in a variety of ways. The idea is for you to keep all unwanted creatures out in the future. Entry points are often much smaller than you would think and we know what to look for. Give us a call to learn how we can assist you with specialized animal removal and animal-proofing.

General Raccoon Removal FAQs

Do all raccoons carry diseases?

Humans should be particularly cautious of daylight raccoons because they are common carriers of rabies, roundworms and leptospirosis. If cornered they may attack you or your pet. Their feces may carry roundworm eggs that can be transferred to you or your pets.

What kinds of damage can raccoons cause?

Raccoon damage can cost you thousands of dollars in damaged insulation and inflated heating and cooling bills. They also frequently destroy ventilation and electrical systems.  Without repair, they can lead to fire, water and mold damage.

How do raccoons get in my attic?

Raccoons often get onto the roof from nearby trees. They will then scratch and chew their way into the attic. They may find a small gap in a soffit or under an eave and chew and scratch at it until it is large enough for them to pass through and make their way into the attic.
