  • We Can Solve It!
Many of Missouri'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 Missouri's wildlife problems, from snake removal to large jobs like commercial bat control, we do it all.

We do not handle dog or cat problems. If you need assistance with a domestic animal, such as a dog or a cat, you need to call your local Doniphan county animal services for assistance. They can help you out with issues such as stray dogs, stray cats, spay & neuter programs, vaccinations, licenses, pet adoption, bite reports, deceased pets, lost pets, local animal complaints and to report neglected or abused animals. There is no free St Joseph animal control for wildlife issues.

St Joseph Wildlife Removal Tip: How To Get Raccoons Out Of A Wall?

While the attic and the yard of your home are one of the most common places where a raccoon frequents, a resourceful raccoon will frequent just about anywhere in order to set up camp and bring up their young. Building a nest in between wall spaces is also an option as they are difficult to reach by potential enemies, and they are cool and dark as well. Just the environmental setting for a nocturnal animal.

How to know if there are raccoons in the wall?

The first and the most obvious signs that you notice is the noise in the forms of moans and cries along with the scratches they make on the wall. A raccoon is a large rodent with respect to rats, mice and squirrels and hence their sounds will be louder and their movements slower. If there are raccoons in the wall, there is a high chance of more in the attic of your home so it is better to go up and have a look even there.

Getting Hold of them!

To get the raccoons out of the wall you need to climb up to the attic and see if the wall space is accessible from there. If they aren't which is more often the case, you would need to cut a hole through to the attic till the wall void is visible and you can exclude the raccoons from there. Always ensure that you wear thick gloves and a mask before you set about on the process of exclusion. After you are done with the removal make sure that you repair the holes and the potential entry/ exit points through which the raccoons might have entered so that there are no such invasions in the future!

The best way to get rid of these raccoons is to catch hold of the young ones with the help of a snare pole and put them in a cage as a bait. The mama raccoon on seeing this, almost walks into the cage every time in order to protect her young and in that process can be trapped. You can also try to catch the mother with the help of a snare pole but it might be an arduous task and can only be done by professionals. The young come in litters varying in size from 3-6 and are very fragile so proper care must be taken that they are not injured while you are carrying out the process of snaring them out. Once everyone is trapped, the mother raccoon can be released in the wild along with babies or put in a wildlife rehabilitation center till the babies are old enough to fend for themselves before being released in the wild.
