Virginia Raccoon Removal
Virginia raccoon removal services get rid of raccoons that have invaded your attic or found their way behind your walls. Quickly trapping and removing raccoons is essential because keeping your family safe and reducing property damage is important to Virginia homeowners and businesses.
Raccoons are common in all areas of the United States. They are easily identifiable by their very distinctive and trademark look – a black mask and furry ringed tail. Adult raccoons in Northern Virginia generally weigh between 10 to 35 lbs. and grow from 2′ to 3′ feet in length. They are omnivorous creatures and excellent climbers because of their dexterous fingers. Raccoons sleep during the day because they are nocturnal animals. So if you see a raccoon active during the day, DO NOT approach it because it may be aggressive or rabid. Raccoon Removal can be dangerous so call our Wildlife Removal professionals immediately.
Virginia raccoons become a nuisance to homeowners in many ways. Raccoons love to raid unsecured trash cans. They steal food left outside for pets. They have even been known to enter Virginia homes through pet doors in search of food. Raccoons damage fruit and vegetable gardens too.
Get Raccoons Out of Your Attic and Home
If you have a raccoon in your attic, please be very careful. Raccoons are aggressive and they will bite. One of the primary reasons a raccoon wants into your attic is to find a protected environment where they can give birth and raise their young. Female raccoons aggressively protect their young and therefore should be trapped and removed by a wildlife removal professional using the proper equipment.
Expert wildlife removal services begin with a thorough inspection of your property in order to find every potential access point, hiding place, and breeding ground for unwanted raccoons.

Removing Raccoons From Virginia Homes
Raccoons in the attic are one of the most common animal control and removal calls we receive from homeowners. Raccoons have adapted well to Virginia’s urban and suburban environments of cities and towns. Raccoons know that human dwellings are great places to nest and raise their young. Virginia homes and businesses offer raccoons protection from the heat of summer and cold of winter. This is especially important during the springtime raccoon mating season when raccoon babies are typically born. During this time, female raccoons can be very aggressive while “nesting” newborns.
Trapping and removing raccoons is a primary service calls for BEDR Wildlife Removal Professionals because wildlife causes considerable damage to houses and they represent a significant safety risk for families and homes. Raccoons destroy fascia boards. They tear off roof shingles and damage and remove siding. Raccoons even remove chimney and vent caps to gain access to houses, chimneys and attic spaces.
How raccoons get into your attic or home is one thing. What they do once inside is another. Raccoons damage and destroy attic and wall insulation and electrical wiring all in an effort to modify the environment to suit their nesting or “denning” purposes. Virginia homeowners must quickly respond to remove raccoons from the attic in order to limit the damage and reduce the contamination and health risks posed by these nuisance pests.
Trap and Remove Raccoons Quickly to Avoid Diseases
Raccoons in the attic can pose a significant health risk to families – especially those with children and pets. Raccoons carry disease, such as Baylisascaris, which is an intestinal parasite known as “raccoon roundworm.” (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baylisascaris) This roundworm can infect people as well as a variety of other animals, including dogs. There are several other diseases that raccoons are responsible for, including several forms of respiratory illnesses.
Raccoons in Virginia and Maryland often have roundworms but they do not usually cause a serious problem for raccoons. However, roundworm eggs shed in raccoon droppings can cause mild to serious illness in other animals and humans. Raccoon roundworm can infect a person who accidentally ingests or inhales the parasite’s eggs.
Never touch or inhale raccoon droppings. Use rubber gloves and a mask when cleaning areas where raccoons have been, and keep young children and pets away from areas where raccoons concentrate. If washing raccoon droppings from a roof, watch where the run-off is going. Unfortunately, raccoon roundworm eggs can remain alive in soil and other places for several months.
If a raccoon bites or scratches you, immediately scrub the wound with soap and water. Be sure to liberally flush the wound with tap water. Remember, raccoons can carry rabies so contact your physician and the local health department immediately. If your pet is bitten, follow the same cleansing procedure and contact your veterinarian.
Repair Raccoon Damage and Replace Contaminated Insulation in the Attic
Raccoons cause considerable damage to attics and homes in Virginia. Raccoons are among the most aggressive and destructive animals to deal with because they cause insulation damage, sheet rock damage, roofing, and shingle damage as well as a number of other structural damage and environmental impacts. A raccoon is one of the least desirable animals to have in your attic and that’s why our wildlife removal specialists respond to urgent and emergency requests for help.
If raccoons have been in your attic for any period of time, then insulation and wiring damage is the most common repair you’ll face. Raccoons contaminate attic insulation with fecal matter and urine which, in addition to posing a health risk to families, will eventually cause the insulation to become matted and compressed. This allows heated air to escape into the attic in the winter and hot air to enter the home in the summer. Raccoons also cause damage to electrical wiring and vents.
If you hear sounds in your attic early in the morning or late at night, then the odds are pretty good that you have a raccoon in your attic. This problem should be addressed immediately by a trained, licensed Wildlife Removal professional.
We have experienced animal waste removal professionals and insulation contractors to help homeowners remove and replace attic insulation damaged by raccoons.
