Frequently Asked Questions

Raccoons are not true hibernators, meaning they do stay active year-round. That being said, you may see fewer raccoons in winter.

Raccoons cause various issues for homeowners. Their fecal matter has a very strong, unpleasant smell and is full of very harmful parasites and bacteria. The main concern is parasitic roundworm when being around or smelling raccoon droppings. Accidently ingesting or breathing in the eggs can cause larva migrans, which is a serious condition that can result in blindness, nerve damage, brain damage, and even death in some cases.

If you have raccoons living in your home, they can cause structural damage and make a mess of food, nesting, feces and other things.

Raccoons may also attack humans if they feel threatened. If you encounter a raccoon suffering from distemper or rabies, it may attack unprovoked.

Big cities are very populated with raccoons as they are scavengers, often going through garbage bins or bird feeders searching for human food. They sleep during the day, often looking for dark, warm nooks to hide away in. Since many attics provide darkness, warmth and lots of shelter away from humans, raccoons will often climb onto roofs and sneak into homes through chimneys, vents, or gaps in siding. If you need attic raccoon removal, contact Terminix Canada today.

Raccoon-proof your attic by checking the integrity of your roof. Make sure there’s no cracks or potential entry points. Since raccoons have tiny, nimble hands, they’re able to rip off shingles and make small structural flaws bigger, in order to sneak through. Installing motion lights in or around your home also helps with chasing them off your property.

Before you seal up entryways into the home, it’s very important you ensure that you don’t have any raccoons living in your home. The last thing you want to do is seal them in.

If you’re wondering how to control raccoons in garden, it’s quite similar to controlling raccoons in other aspects of your backyard. Ensure that water and food supplies are kept inside or out of reach at night, such as bird feeders or water bowls. However, if you have a plentiful vegetable garden, it can be tricky to keep raccoons from eating your fruits or veggies. If you can cover the vegetables with cages or bags, it can discourage them from getting into the garden in the first place.

You can also try to keep raccoons out of your backyard by using loud, intermittent lights or noises, such as motion sensors that activate lights, noise or water jets. If you have nearby neighbours however, you’ll have to make sure that none of these deterrents are a bother to them.  

If you’re wondering how to get rid of raccoons in the ceiling, it means you already have a raccoon infestation and the time to act is now. Call in pest control services for humane and effective raccoon removal and wildlife control.

If you have raccoons living in your home, it’s important to get them out quickly before they cause serious issues. They leave behind dangerous fecal matter that contains harmful bacteria and pungent odour. Additionally, they can cause structural damage and make a mess of your living space.

The best way to get raccoons out of the attic is to hire a professional, humane pest control company to help. Terminix Canada offers attic raccoon removal as well as other pest control services to effectively rid your home of pests. It’s important to note that in many areas, it’s illegal to relocate raccoons, which is why professional pest control services are the best way to go to ensure your safety and accordance with the law.

    Wow, did we have a raccoon problem! Unbeknownst to us a raccoon family was living in our attic. We knew that it was some form of wildlife that was creating the crazy … read more noises that was preventing us from sleeping but had no idea that the culprits were relentless raccoons. Thanks to Adam’s experience in the field and his persistent actions, the raccoon family exited the house. It was not an easy process and took many logical and creative tries. Adam is a skilled problem solver with a wide range of skills in the construction field that make him particularly adept at this type of job. With the assistance of Marshal, he got rid of the raccoons. Both Adam and Marshal are to be commended for being both persistent and positive during this challenging time for our family. The raccoon noises were disrupting our entire household and we were exhausted. A huge thank you to Terminix and particularly to Adam and Marshal for helping us enjoy our home again. I would highly recommend the work done by Adam and Marshal. Terminix is fortunate to employ such skilled professionals.
