How do I get rid of raccoons in my attic?

Among nuisance wildlife species that invade homes in Chattanooga, raccoons are the largest – and some of the most destructive. Raccoons will go as far as to rip off roof shingles to gain access to your attic, and inside they’ll continue wreaking havoc by destroying insulation and belongings, as well as making a mess with urine and droppings.

If you have raccoons living in your attic in Chattanooga, follow these tips to get rid of them:

  • Set up traps for the raccoons in your attic. Raccoons are omnivores that can be baited with a variety of foods, including peanut butter, fruit, and pet food. Baby raccoons tend to be easier to trap, though adults will often follow their babies into traps. Once all of the raccoons have been removed from your attic, safely release them into the wild somewhere far away from your home.
  • Set up a radio in your attic and play loud music. Raccoons are wary of loud noises, which may compel them to abandon your attic and find a new den.
  • Spray raccoon deterrent solutions into your attic. Smells hated by raccoons include ammonia, peppermint, and garlic. If your attic reeks of these scents, raccoons may find it uninhabitable and move on.
  • Work with an experienced wildlife removal company in the Chattanooga area. Raccoon control technicians are specially trained on how to safely and humanely remove adult and juvenile raccoons from an attic. They can also block off entry points to exclude raccoons from invading your attic in the future.
