Raccoons In Your Houston, Dallas/Fort Worth, TX & Surrounding Areas Home? Here Are The Signs

Raccoons are clever, resourceful, and persistent animals. Unfortunately, these traits also make them quite adept at breaking into homes when searching for food or shelter. If you suspect that you might have a raccoon infiltration, it's important to act fast. The longer raccoons are present in your home, the more damage they will cause and the greater the risk for disease transmission. Here's how to tell if these animals are making themselves at home in your house:

  • Droppings: Raccoon feces are typically two or three inches long and jet-black in color. They often contain bones, seeds, or pieces of fruits and vegetables.
  • Damage to insulation, ductwork, or wiring: Raccoons chew through electrical wires, which can pose a serious fire hazard. If you notice any damage to your home's structure, insulation, ductwork, or wiring, it may be a sign of raccoons.
  • Screeching, chittering, or thumping coming from your attic or walls: Raccoons are nocturnal animals but can be active during the day as well, particularly if offspring are present. The sound of heavy walking around overhead often accompany these sounds.

Raccoons can wreak havoc on your home if they take up residence. Be on the lookout for these signs, and contact the Houston, Dallas/Fort Worth, TX and surrounding areas wildlife experts at 911 Wildlife if you need help.

Humane Eviction

Rather than setting traps or using harmful chemicals, 911 Wildlife evicts the raccoons from your property by making it inhospitable for them. We install a special one-way door that allows the animals to exit your home but not re-enter. Then, if needed, we use non-chemical aversion techniques to encourage the animal to vacate the area.

Our goal is not only one-time removal but the prevention of future infiltrations. In order to do this, we take special care to exclude the animals from your property. Exclusion involves sealing up all potential entry points, including gaps in your home's siding, openings around utility lines, and unscreened vents. Our exclusion work comes with a 10-year guarantee.
