Raccoon Removal

In attics, on roofs,in the chimney in MD, VA, WV

Looking for a responsive and local raccoon trapping and removal service that offers free inspections? Our licensed wildlife control service will safely and humanly remove raccoons from your attic and home. It is ILLEGAL to kill and or/relocate raccoons in many states and jurisdictions. For example, relocation of raccoons in Virginia is illegal unless licensed. So it is best to professionally remove them - extermination is usually not a legal option.

Raccoons are well adapted to urban, suburban and rural areas throughout Maryland, Virginia, and West Virginia. They are excellent climbers typically building nests in attics, chimneys, vents, roofs and walls. A raccoon on a roof, can rip open vents and find gaps in soffits, which allows attic access. Once inside, raccoons present a human health danger from parasites to rabies. Raccoons will deposit feces in “latrines” which will soil attic insulation and become a serious health hazard. Sometimes our inspections find many such latrines - and they must be sanitized and cleaned. 

Our raccoon trapping services are legal and humane. We will relocate them to a safe place, then seal the entry points so they don’t get back in.  We also offer contaminated insulation inspection, removal and replacement, which requires special protective equipment. Raccoon eradication is a complex and dangerous wildlife control issue - NOT a DIY task. Contact us Environmental Pest Control will get rid of your raccoons and clean up the mess

How do you get rid of racoons in your attic? 

Removal of raccoons in your attic or chimney is a complex problem we encounter in wildlife control. Definitely not a DIY issue if you want to do it right, safely and legally! The solution usually requires professional trapping. But you MUST first determine if there are baby raccoons present. Raccoons give birth during the spring time and often baby racoons will be present. In this case trapping the mother is required. Then then baby racoons may be hand removed. And finally safely relocated.

Will local governments remove my raccoons?

Not likely and each jurisdiction has varying laws, some complex. For example, in DC and Fairfax County, no free agency will come to your house to take care of the problem for you. If rabies is highly suspected, some jurisdictions, like Loudoun County VA and Montgomery County MD, may come. However, it is more likely they will refer you to a private licensed Wildlife Control trapper. In general, local governments are not allowed to cause potential home damage to catch raccoons and usually provide information for a finding a licensed wildlife removal specialist.

Do you remove raccoon poop from attics? Do you replace contaminated insulation? 

Yes on both counts! The raccoon poop and any latrine damage should be removed and contaminated insulation replaced, and we do both. Then the attic area may be sanitized. Cleanup requires special protective equipment and respirators. 

How can you prevent raccoons from coming back?

After all animals are removed from your attic and home, the entry points must be identified and sealed up. Raccoons are intelligent and highly dexterous. If your seal up is incomplete, you may have raccoons again.  We inspect for and perform exclusionary repairs to all access points including attic vents, chimney caps, gables, cracks, and ridge caps.

How much does it cost for professional raccoon removal?

The price for professional trapping and removal of raccoons varies widely. In a yard, raccoon removal may be $200-$600. A nest in an attic with babies may be $600 -$2,000. It will vary greatly depending on the required service and if there is a warranty provided. Attic insulation removal-repair and exclusionary seal-up may be extra.
