Raccoons in the Crawlspace White House
Raccoons in the Crawlspace have become a growing issue in White House. Crawlspaces are secluded and dry and a perfect place for raccoons to have a safe place to make a nest.
It’s not the noise in your crawlspace that should worry you, but the damage raccoons can make by ruining the insulation, vapor barrier and duct lines. The insulation and vapor barrier can be ruined from urine, feces, afterbirth, and diseases.
Most commonly in White House, we find an adult female raccoons with babies in crawlspaces.
Often, if you hear a loud thumping noise, raccoons have made their way into the crawlspace and started making a new home for themselves. If you act quickly, you can circumvent this and hopefully minimize damage created by raccoons in the crawlspace.
Raccoon Infestations – Prevent Raccoons in the Crawlspace
If you leave remnants of raccoons in your crawlspace, such as droppings, urine, nesting material, food, hair, etc., these things can attract insects like roaches. Most importantly, the scent left behind often attract new raccoons to break their way into your home once again.
Mold can also grow on the areas in your attic with feces and urine and potentially cause respiratory infections and diseases that are easily spreadable. Raccoons are also attracted to the scent from other animals or rodents. They will find their way in and kill the other animals to take over your crawlspace.

When you call Alpha Wildlife, a trained raccoon removal specialist will come out to your home or business to provide a complete inspection and prepare a free assessment for you.
We typically provide same day service in White House. During the birthing season, Alpha Wildlife begins each raccoon removal project with a thorough search of your home for baby raccoons.
These kits are immobile and cannot be chased or trapped from your attic. We must remove them by hand and relocate them to a safer environment.
Female raccoons work hard to protect and hide their litter of babies. Finding these babies is never easy and pretty much always involves crawling through a cramped and sweltering attic that is full of fiberglass insulation that has a distinctive strong odor of urine and feces.

Once we confirm the animal species that has entered your home, we are trained to use the most effective and humane means of removing the animals. While we use many different traps, our team uses the most effective trap for each animal and situation.
Sometimes we simply set live traps or use other devices that allow the animals to safely exit your home, but not get back inside. Other times we remove the animals by hand, or with special tools such as snare poles.

Repairing entry holes is a crucial step in the wildlife removal process. Sealing all entry holes shut ensures no future wildlife entry from these holes, which is also our goal.
Our job is not considered complete until 100% of the entry holes are found and sealed shut. When applicable, we use steel. Rodents such as rats and squirrels are unable to chew through steel – they prefer wood.
