In California, we perform raccoon control and raccoon exclusion every day!Raccoons are particularly active from March to October. They are intelligent, strong, aggressive, and destructive animals. Racoons can also be hard to catch! For your safety, we urge you to let the trained, licensed professionals at Advanced Wildlife Removal solve your raccoon problems.Raccoons are often found near forested areas with water sources. They will den in various locations, including trees, ground burrows, below building structures and in residential attics. Raccoons are a common host of rabies—be sure to keep children and pets at a safe distance whenever a raccoon is seen.
Signs to Watch For
If you think a raccoon may be on your property, look for these indicators:

  • Damage to lawns
  • Sounds coming from attics, tool sheds and below structures
  • Damage to walls and other home structures
  • Stains on painted structures due to dirty paws
  • Animal feces found any place raccoons may visit

Raccoon Evictions

In order to protect her young, mother raccoons will den in hard-to-reach locations throughout your property. Racoons are strong animals that cause a lot of damage to find a safe den. They rip panels off of houses! Racoons pull screens off of vents! They can even pull doors off of crawl spaces! After all, if found, male raccoons kill the young in order to force the female raccoon back into heat.Our raccoon eviction process begins by locating the den. We then spray male raccoon pheromones throughout the area—this encourages the mother to abandon the den.Once the raccoons have left,Advanced Wildlife Removal closes all entry points with custom-built screens.
