Raccoon Removal That Vancouver Can Trust
Taking residence in cities and suburbs, raccoons can cause a mess in attics, chimneys, soffits, and walls. These small mammals generally weight 10-30 pounds and can squeeze their way into the tightest of spaces. Dedicated scavengers, raccoons will take residence in insulated attics to keep warm, but can often be found stuck in chimneys, hiding under cars, and scratching inside walls.
All Green Pest Control has served Vancouver and the surrounding communities since 2016. If you suspect you have raccoons causing damage to your home, Contact Us to Schedule Your Raccoon Removal Inspection.

Risks Posed by Raccoon Presence
Once inside a structure, raccoons pose several notable risks worth keeping an eye on. If you’ve got a raccoon problem, don’t wait: call All Green to get them out today!
Raccoons, like other mammals, are constantly in search of a safe place from which they can scavenge and protect their young. The insulation in walls and attics provides a perfect, warm, cozy home for raccoons and their offspring. Their presence can destroy your insulation, causing thousands in damage and reducing your energy efficiency.
Raccoons love to chew, gnaw, and bite. Because they’ve got flexible, strong paws, they can also yank and pull at electrical wiring that may be in their way. Once exposed, damaged electrical wiring poses fire risks. This damaged wiring can also affect outlet grounds and the electricity supplied to parts of your home.
Raccoons can pose serious health risks to those exposed to their presence. Raccoon-carried rabies is a primary concern, as well as the neurotoxic parasitic Roundworm. Roundworm can be found in accumulated raccoon feces. Roundworm eggs are resilient and easily transported. A roundworm infection can cause nausea, vertigo, blindness, and death.

Follow these tips to keep raccoons out of your home.
Seal Trash Cans
As previously mentioned, raccoons are talented scavengers. Overflowing trash cans, improperly sealed bags, and exposed waste and scraps are targets for raccoons who will easily climb into your trash cans.
Eliminate Food Sources
To the same end as sealing your trash cans, ensuring you don’t feed raccoons (either unintentionally or otherwise!) is critical in keeping the tricky mammals away. If raccoons get a sense that they can effectively scavenge in an area, they’ll do everything they can to take residence.
Manage Entry Points
Soffits, loose siding, gaps in roofing vents, and unsealed chimneys all provide easy access to your home for raccoons. Ensuring your structure is free from entry points will go a long way in mitigating potential raccoon-induced damage.
