Wild raccoons are capable of causing an extensive amount of damage and mess to a home or property. They are known to take shelter in residential and commercial areas, commonly invading attics, crawl spaces, roofs, vents, ducts, garages, sheds, porches, and more. They use these areas to protect themselves and their young from harsh weather and cold temperatures; as well as, for breeding grounds and feeding.
Once raccoons are occupying a particular area of a residential or commercial property, they immediately begin their destructive tendencies. For instance, raccoons can chew through wood beams and electrical wiring, rip down attic insulation, and saturate dry wall, sheet rock, ceilings, and other areas of a home with urine and feces.
Many property owners are overwhelmed with the sight of their home or building after a raccoon infestation. Once they are professionally removed, what happens to the area that has been destroyed? Continue reading to learn about professional raccoon cleanup services and how they can help a property owner in distress following a raccoon infestation or disturbance.
When wild raccoons have nested, burrowed, and hibernated in a home or building for an extended amount of time, the chances of structural damage is high. Dry wall is ripped, torn, and saturated with animal urine and droppings; while attic insulation, ceilings, and more are also saturated with urine and ripped away for nesting and playtime. On top of these damages, extreme structural damage is likely too. Porches, decks, roofs, and more have to be gutted or replaced at times; depending on the degree of damages. In other cases, restorations can take weeks or months to complete because of the extensiveness of harm and destruction.

What Can I Do to Keep Squirrels out of the Attic?
Want to know more about the ABC's of what this area under discussion has to propose to every human being who is willing to do things for themselves? During an inspection of the structure needing bat eviction I can determine the size of the colony and the best time of the year to remove the bats. During certain times of the year bats form nursery colonies. Depending on your geographical area the bats can only be removed when the young bats are able to fly. We like to use a one-way door or referred to as a valve.
These unidirectional escapes lets the bats escape not allowing the bats back in. This type of bat control eviction is approved by the organization Bat Conservation International. The utmost critical thing in bat removal from a residence is attention to all the little construction gaps. When closing all construction gaps, anything larger than an a quarter inch should be sealed. You have to seal the entire home to foil bats from getting back in. You will go as far as sealing any fault or construction crack. Ill need to exclude vents to keep bats out, let's start by closing off louver vents, attic vents, and ridge vents if bats can breach them using 1/4 inch screen. These can be painted to match, but I have found it blends in nicely left unpainted.
Inspect chimneys, bricks and mortar may be loose forming gaps. Look for gaps around where the chimney goes through soffit, carefully seal gaps and install a one-way door, if a bat way in is there. Ridge venting systems are feasible bat entrances. When looking at the ridge vent closely you'll usually find the plastic ridge vents deform leaving gaps, I've seen where varmints have chewed a gap in the vent. I will do away with the previous roof vent system and replace it. Primarily, you lay down 1/4 inch hardware cloth this keeps the bats, mice and squirrels from getting through. We will install a one-way bat door here also if the bats were using this area. Finally you'll finish the attic vent with a vent system referred to as Cobra vent, and then finish it with top cap shingles. We try to color match any calking, tin work and exclusion work to make it merge in as if we have not had to fix the construction defects. We use paintable caulking, the silicon based calks will tinge over time.
I build my own one-way doors. After ten years of bat control, I came up with an easy effective one-way valve for bat removal. You can purchase commercially produced bat cones but I personally think they are too short and have no airflow at the base where it is attached to the structure. These one-way doors are left on for about two weeks, to let bats leave. Then I can remove the one-way door and then block the entrance. After the bats have exited through the one-way doors the bats will try for several nights to get back in, by looking for another entrance, this is why sealing every possible entrance needs to be done. This is how to evict bats.Find out more by reading our other articles on this topic and other subjects we have written related to it.

Continue reading to learn the meaning behind a dead raccoon near your house, and what to do when you find one.
Raccoons are highly intelligent mammals that have become a nuisance wildlife issue for many residential and urban neighborhoods. Due to land over-development, raccoons have been forced out of their natural habitats, and left to thrive on whatever resources they can find near them. The other problem is that raccoons do not naturally live a long time in the wild. In domesticated settings, a raccoon can live up to 20 or 30 years, but in nature, they have a life expectancy of 2 to 3 years. For this reason, it is common to come across a dead raccoon, whether hit by a car or preyed upon by a larger mammal.
