Many of Maryland's wild animals have learned to adapt and even thrive in our homes. For example some wildlife have found
that attics make great places to live. Other animals find refuge under homes or porches. Invariably,
these animals cause damage. Rodents, like squirrels and rats, love to chew on electrical wires once in an attic, and this causes a serious fire
hazard. Raccoons can cause serious contamination in an attic with their droppings and parasites. Same goes for bat or bird colonies. We specialize in solving Maryland's
wildlife problems, from snake removal to large jobs like commercial bat control, we do it all.

Olney Wildlife Removal Tip: How to Get Rid of Raccoons in The Attic?
Raccoons are one of the species in the rodents’ families. They are very smart, often more active at night and eat almost anything that they can find. Raccoons are also very distinctively recognized, with their greyish coats, front paws and black-white stripy tail. They are usually found in the pastures and forestry areas. However, raccoons can now be easily found in urban environments, living almost next to our homes. They are not afraid of any threats like us humans or domestic animals like our pet cats and dogs. They love to find food like fruits and vegetables in our houses.
1. Signs of Raccoons’ Entry in The House
There are several signs for home owners to notice if their houses are broken in by raccoons. You may check for entry holes like your garbage bin being toppled over, yard or plantation with fruit bitten or even left-over food being snacked on.
2. Preventive Measures for Raccoons’ Break-In
You may prevent future raccoons’ break-in by trying out with below several measures:
• Throw out all left-over food in the trash, if not intended for future consumption.
• Lock up the trashcan in sheds or garages or make it difficult for raccoons to open.
• Maintain your yard clean by picking up any left-over food for human or pet consumption.
• Pick up all fallen fruits from your fruit trees planted in the garden.
• Build up a fence or an electrical fence to keep raccoons away from your house.
• Install motion-automated sprinklers in the garden or yard to spray raccoons off.
• Install cages or traps to catch these sneaky raccoons.
3. How to Get Rid of Raccoons in The Attic?
So, what if these raccoons are in your attic, how should you get rid of them? It’s relatively simple if you follow below steps accordingly:
1. Check for entry holes of raccoons getting into your attic – for example: holes on the roof.
2. Once you have recognized the roof holes, start to inspect the insides of your attic for any litters of raccoon babies, as raccoons reproduce rapidly within weeks.
3. Before removing the baby litters, remember to equip your hands by wearing a pair of thick gloves and a pillowcase for you to carry these babies around for easy relocation.
4. Pick up and remove these baby raccoons with your protected hands and place them in the pillowcase temporarily.
5. Prepare a large cage trap with dividers, so that you can place these baby raccoons to lure the mother raccoon into the cage.
6. Once the mother raccoon is trapped, together with the babies, in the cage, bring the cage into the forestry or wooden areas, at least a certain distance away from your house.
7. Once all the raccoons are captured, repair the entry holes with solid foundation material.
8. As for the insides of your attic, sweep clean and disinfect those droppings found in the attic.
