Raccoons In Whitby Attics
Raccoons cause damage to roofs and other structures. Once inside, the warm, dry, secluded shelter provides protection from other animals and humans, making it a safe place to live. Through the entry hole(s) in the roof, rain and snow will enter. Inside of the attic, insulation and electrical wiring can be compromised. The accumulation of feces in and around the home can present serious human health consequences.
AAA Gates' Wildlife Control will arrive at your Whitby home, conduct a thorough inspection and provide you with a free estimate outlining the work necessary to solve the wildlife intrusion. During the birthing season, the first step is to enter the attic and locate the raccoon family. During the search a watchful eye must be kept on the mother raccoon as her instinctive nature is to guard her young, sometimes prompting her to attack when you least expect it. Only after the mother raccoon has been chased out of the attic or kept at bay can her babies be collected. In cases when the adult or mobile juveniles cannot be chased outside, installation of our tested and proven Gates one-way-door allows them to exit through the door but not to get back in.
The next step is to repair the damaged shingles and secure a heavy guage galvanized screen over the entry hole. Animal proofing of roof vents, plumbing roof mats / pipes, chimneys etc. (see our section on Keep Them Out) is also essential to keep all wildlife out for a long time to come. All repair work is backed by our Gates one year guarantee, supported by our over 35 years in business.
The final step in our humane approach is to reunite the mother raccoon with her young. To this extent the babies are placed in our specifically designed Gates heated release box, which maintains their core body temperature. The maternal mother raccoon will return to retrieve her young, one by one, and to take them to a known, pre-established secondary den site.
