The strange noise from the attic in the night hours can easily make you aware of the presence of Miami-Dade County raccoons in the attic. Note that they are large creatures; hence each and every movement of these animals in your attic will be noticeable. It is not easy to get rid of them, but it is not impossible as well.
How to get rid of raccoons in the attic?
There is no doubt to say that Florida raccoons are energetic animals with fairly large size and they have great climbing skills. In case if they like your home and want to live in your attic, they can soon make it possible. Raccoons mostly prefer to visit human habitats that are close to their natural homes in the forests. In case if you have well-designed entry points for them, they will surely love to visit again and again.
Those who have more open holes in the attic are likely to have Miami-Dade County raccoons as their permanent guests. These animals are trained enough to make their path through tiny holes and can move in and out safely. So, first of all, it is important to seal all the entry holes in advance. If your house is surrounded by so many trees, then raccoons can also climb the branches to reach your attic. But it doesn’t mean that they can only come up if the tree branches allow them to do so. The terrible fact is that these notorious creatures are capable enough to climb over the smooth wooden surfaces and brick walls as well.
Raccoons can also enter your attic through the roof, especially from dormers as well as from areas where wooden pieces are overlapped. You will be sad to know that raccoons are also capable enough to rip and claw their path via wooden shingles and roofing. In case if raccoons have already entered the attic area and have babies there, it is important to take out the whole family of raccoons safely. They must be relocated at some safe location that is far away from human habitats and can have enough sources of survival for them. You can call professional raccoon exterminators to take these creatures out without any trouble. Once they are taken out, prefer to seal all the entry points so that these creatures do not find a way to return. Wildlife experts can also catch them by using live cage traps, paw hold traps or body grip traps. After raccoon removal, it is important to use preventive measures to save your house.
