Cape Coral Raccoon Removal
Raccoon Removal Services
Signs of a raccoon in your attic include thumping and scurrying noises, especially at night. Adult and baby raccoons make a variety of distinctive vocal sounds that you may hear as well, including growling, chirping and whining. You may never actually "see" a raccoon that has taken up residence in your attic because they usually sleep unnoticed during the day and exit in the evening when it is harder to view them.
By The Wildlife Whisperer
If you have a problem with raccoons in your attic or anywhere else around your property, please be aware that adult raccoons can be very dangerous, so if you attempt to remove raccoons on your own you are taking a big risk. It is best to call a professional. There are few other animals their size in Cape Coral that can be more vicious.
The Wildlife Whisperer knows how to solve raccoon problems the humane way without killing, trapping or relocation. We offer trapping and relocation services if clients request them specifically, but our no-trap, no-kill methods have proven to be more affordable and effective than trapping, so trapping is seldom our first recommendation.

Raccoon Damage Control
Raccoons and other nuisance wildlife find attics inviting because they provide shelter and a cozy place to bear their young. Gaining entry into an attic is little challenge for a raccoon as they are excellent climbers and strong enough to tear through typical deterrents such as roofs, vents and soffits. Thinly constructed lanai screens are also no match for raccoons.
Many homes in Cape Coral have construction related vulnerabilities such as barrel tile Spanish roofs. There are also a lot of newer construction homes in the area, built post 1970, that are not quite as sturdy a construction as those built before that time.
Raccoons should always be taken seriously. Once inside, raccoons can do a lot of damage - tearing holes in walls, destroying insulation, ripping open ductwork, and chewing on electric wires. Raccoons have their young, (called kits and cubs) in attics in the spring and can stay there until August or later if not remedied. Along with their young, they bring lice and 80% of their feces carries roundworm.
