Raccoon Information

Raccoons have been displaced from their natural habitats in San Diego by urban sprawl. Over time, raccoons have acclimated to life around humans and are a common sight near food and water sources available to them.

Raccoon Prevention

There are a few steps you can do to prevent raccoons from becoming interested in your property. Raccoons are opportunistic omnivores, eliminating sources of food and water are the first steps in getting rid of these pests. Bring outdoor pet food inside at night. Make sure garbage can lids are secure after disposing of trash. Fish ponds, fruit tress and vegetable gardens also act as food sources and should be kept clean and free of fallen fruit and vegetables.

Raccoon Dangers & Damage

Raccoons are very aggressive and strong animals. They can tear through shingles, roof vents, and even screens to gain access to attics, crawl spaces, or chimneys. Once inside, they may rip apart insulation, chew on wires, and damage structural components, leading to costly repairs. If threatened, raccoons will attack humans and pets, especially if they are cornered or defending their young . They have also been known to carry rabies, leptospirosis, roundworm, and various bacterial infections. Their feces can also harbor harmful pathogens, posing a risk if accidentally ingested or if airborne particles are inhaled. If you have a raccoon on your property, do not attempt to capture it yourself.

Raccoon Control, Removal & Exclusion

Spring time is when we receive numerous calls about raccoons taking up residence in attics, crawl spaces, trees and walls. It is essential that home owners, property management companies, and businesses confront this problem head-on with the help of professionals as soon as possible.

In most cases, a female raccoon is preparing to give birth and has selected your property as her new home. Raccoons cause a significant amount of damage to houses and other structures. Raccoons have no reservations about tearing holes in your roof or walls. Once inside, raccoons shred insulation materials to make a nest. After the nest is constructed, the raccoons will urinate and defecate within your attic to mark its territory. The longer the raccoons stay in the attic, the more damage will be done, sometimes costing the property owner upwards of thousands of dollars in repair and cleanup fees.

Raccoon Damage Restoration

If you have a raccoon problem, we strongly recommend preventative maintenance steps to keep your raccoons from returning. Raccoons tend to use already existing openings around the home for their nests. If these holes are left unsealed after your raccoons are removed, more will move in. We'll conduct a thorough assessment of your property to identify potential entry points and develop a customized plan tailored to your property's specific needs and local pest population. After the raccoons have been removed from your property, we’ll clean out the toxic urine and feces. We’ll remove and replace the damaged insulation, deodorizing the affected area as we go.
