Raccoon Removal The Villages | Trapping | Control | ExterminatorThe Villages is a popular and growing Central Florida community that is home to an abundance of wild animals such as raccoons. However, as the city expands, natural habitats are diminished which forces displaced wildlife to find new homes and sources of food and water. Unfortunately, their search often leads them to residential neighborhoods and commercial business districts — where they can cause quite a bit of damage.

Here are some of the destructive signs that raccoons have invaded your property in The Villages and ways that Critter Control® in The Villages can combat it.

5 Exterior Signs, You Have a Raccoon Infestation

About the size of a large cat, raccoons are known as scavenging bandits with dexterous abilities that allow them to easily open and rummage through trash cans and dumpsters in search of food. Raccoons are also in search of shelter from the elements and predators and  generally seek refuge in the following locations:

  1. Attics

  2. Crawl spaces under homes

  3. Debris and woodpiles

  4. Front and back porches

  5. Storage and utility sheds

6 Interior Signs, You Have a Raccoon Infestation

While they commonly stay outside, raccoons can access your home by managing their way through roof openings, pet doors, and window screens. Signs of an interior raccoon infestation include:

  1. Scratches, purring, or thumping noises coming from your attic – especially at night

  2. Damage to roof vents, soffits, or other attic access points

  3. Strange behavior from your house pets

  4. Foul odors coming from your attic or walls

  5. Raccoon waste stains on your interior walls or ceiling

  6. Visible droppings along attic floorboards

Removing a Raccoon Infestation

Due to a raccoon’s large size, large 1- or 2-door traps must be used to live-capture the animal. However, because of the aggressive nature of a cornered raccoon and its potential to spread infectious disease through bites and scratches, raccoon removal is best left to a professional wildlife control technician.
