Raccoon Family in Attic
A homeowner in Euless heard loud noises from his attic at night, and we suspected a raccoon den. Raccoons thrive throughout Dallas-Forth Worth and make a lot of noise at night. Baby raccoons will call out constantly making noises like mewing, crying, and whining. During the inspection, we found a raccoon den with four baby raccoons.
Raccoon Den in Attic
Trutech Wildlife District Manager, Brad Woods, found the raccoon den in the attic with four baby raccoons. He was able to catch and remove the babies safely. The babies went to a local Fort Worth wildlife rehabilitator.
Once he ensured all raccoons were gone from the attic, he provided a complete home exclusion. Exclusion services prevent the animal from returning. For a raccoon, exclusion focuses on roof returns, gable vents, soffit vents, and roof vents.
After the house was protected, we needed to clean up after the raccoon. We applied a sanitizing agent and used an ectoparasite treatment. Raccoons can introduce ectoparasites like feals, ticks, lice, and mites. The treatment eliminates the ectoparasites so they don’t find you as their next host.
