Ft. Mitchell, KY Raccoon Removal

Tri-State Wildlife Management is fully licensed and insured, and we stand behind all our work

Ft. Mitchell, KY Raccoon RemovalAttics are ideal den sites for raccoons, providing warmth and protection from the elements. During the winter, they become less active, and in severe cold or during a hard winter storm, they may stay in their den for many days. Typically, February is the beginning of raccoon mating season, extending into March. Most raccoon litters are born in April or May, but as late as August. Young typically stay with the female through their first winter and then disperse the following spring. Tri-State Wildlife Management understands the importance of the timing of a raccoon trapping program, always being aware and taking precautions when juveniles may be present.

It is surprising to many home or business owners that a raccoon can easily gain access to their roof and attic, but raccoons have excellent climbing abilities. It is very common to see dark smudge marks on a downspout of a home where a raccoon has been climbing to gain access to an attic. Unfortunately, raccoon damage doesn’t end with a little bit of discoloration on a downspout; raccoons wreak havoc on shingles, gutters, soffits, fascia, and louver vents in an (usually successful) effort to gain access to the attic. Tri-State Wildlife Management understands the persistence and strength of raccoons, so we only use the top of the line wildlife grade construction materials when excluding raccoons from a home and making the necessary repairs.

Raccoons also make a mess of the inside of attics, both by ripping insulation and creating foul latrines.  If coming in contact with a raccoon latrine, safety precautions must be taken. Raccoons are the most common carriers of raccoon roundworm, a parasite that can be passed to humans, although small children are most vulnerable. The larvae of the worm goes through muscles and organs, potentially causing a serious infection that can lead to death, although this is rare.  When necessary or requested, Tri-State Wildlife Management provides attic clean-outs, safely removing contaminated insulation and replacing it with new insulation.

Tri-State Wildlife Management strives for the most humane and environmentally effective techniques for dealing with wildlife problems. Tri-State Wildlife Management’s use of modern innovative methods provides sound wildlife management services to ensure the protection of our customers’ investments and health.

Raccoon removal Erlanger, KY

Raccoon Removal Erlanger, KY: Raccoons are opportunistic creatures, taking advantage of a wide variety of foods and den sites. Raccoons are prevalent in cities and suburbs because of the abundance of food and denning options. It is a common myth that a decrease in natural habitats and increased urbanization threatens raccoon populations. The truth is that raccoons thrive where they can live in close proximity to humans. Raccoons have many easy food sources when living near humans, including dumpsters, garbage cans, pet food, etc.  Attics, chimneys, crawlspaces, sheds, brush piles, and underneath decks and porches are all common man made den sites for raccoons.

Not giving raccoons access to food and shelter are the two most important ways to prevent or resolve a raccoon issue. Garbage cans should be secured and left inside when at all possible, and pet food should never be left outside. Inspecting your home for at risk areas and keeping up on home repairs can go a long way in keeping a raccoon out of your home’s attic and crawlspaces. Tri-State Wildlife Management (TSWM) provides thorough home inspections, both to ensure no wildlife is entering your home or business, and to pinpoint raccoon entry points if there is already an issue. If you have a raccoon issue, TSWM removes and excludes them from your home or business. TSWM also installs wildlife deterrent chimney caps to prevent raccoons or other animals from entering.

Raccoon Removal Cold Spring, KY

Tri-State Wildlife Management – Protecting You, Your Property, and Your Investment

Raccoon Removal Cold Spring, KY: Raccoons are very opportunistic animals, regarding both where they den and what they eat. In the wild, raccoons typically den in rock crevices, trees, brush piles, and ground burrows, but they also take  advantage of man made structures such as homes, office buildings, warehouses, sheds, barns, etc. Also, raccoons will eat just about anything including but not limited to, nuts, grains, and fruit; fish, birds, eggs, insects, and rodents; and man made foods, pet food, and garbage. Cities and suburbs are magnets for raccoons due to the abundance of comfortable man made den sites and food sources.

If you think you’re providing a raccoon(s) with one of these comfortable den sites and/or food sources, we need to talk. It’s not good to have raccoons in close proximity to humans, as they pose a variety of risks including disease threats, pet and livestock threats, and damage to structures and landscapes,  First, they can carry and transmit serious diseases including raccoon roundworm. Raccoon roundworm is transmitted through fecal matter, and can cause blindness, brain damage, and even death. Raccoons can also attack pets and small livestock/poultry. If raccoons are habituated to eating pet food left outside, they may become defensive when a cat or dog attempts to have a meal. Raccoons can be very destructive to homes and buildings, ripping and prying apart siding, shingles, wood chips, gutters, etc. If a raccoon is denning inside of a home, they can tear apart insulation and create foul, unsanitary latrines. Gardens and lawns are also susceptible to raccoon damage, more specifically, crop destruction and holes in lawns in search of grubs, insects, and earthworms.

This time of year, landscaping damage isn’t an issue, but structural damage, health risks, and pet safety can be. It’s important to take care of any wildlife problem, including raccoons, sooner rather than later to prevent future damage and risks. In addition, it’s much easier to remove any problem raccoons from a structure when young are not present. Since most raccoons give birth between late February and June, now is an ideal time to remove them.

The courteous staff  at Tri-State Wildlife Management works for you to provide a cost effective solution to your raccoon intrusion and/or damage issue. As a full service company, we initiate an Integrated Wildlife Management Program beginning with an inspection and customer education, followed by removal of intrusive wildlife and repair of wildlife damage. TSWM also offers prevention, restoration, and cleanup services.

Tri-State Wildlife Management uses a variety of products and methods for repairs, prevention, and restoration.  TSWM seals homes and businesses with specialized wildlife restoration products, installs custom and standard chimney caps, vent screens/coverings, as well as barrier walls and fencing. TSWM provides habitat modification as another preventative technique. Cleanup services are sometimes needed or desired. A TSWM cleanup can remove raccoon droppings and contaminated debris from attics or other wildlife invaded areas.

For raccoon removal in Highland Heights, KY or anywhere in Northern Kentucky, Cincinnati, or Southeastern IN, call Tri-State Wildlife Management at (859) 635-0037.

raccoon removal Highland Heights, KY

Highland Heights, KY Raccoon Removal: Raccoons, squirrels, and other wild animals are hunkering down in warm den sites for the cold winter. Raccoons leave the comfort of their den sites at night to scavenge for food. If you have a raccoon in your attic, you may hear the leaving and returning of it throughout the night. If there is an extreme cold spell, raccoons will not venture outside. This has led to a few current customers reporting that it sounds like a football game is going on in their attic all night long.

Raccoons living in close proximity to humans often take advantage of man made structures for shelter, especially in the winter. Any man made structure is susceptible to a raccoon invasion, including sheds, garages, warehouses, etc. Houses are not immune, and raccoons often live in soffits, attics, chimneys, and crawl spaces. It’s surprising to some customers, but raccoons can gain access to roofs very easily. Raccoons are excellent climbers, and they can climb up houses without much trouble.

Once a raccoon is on a roof, how does it get in? Unfortunately, raccoons are also great at ripping apart construction materials including shingles, gutters, soffits, etc. The same abilities that allow them to sift through garbage cans and pry containers open aid them in gaining access to the inside of your home. A raccoon can take a seemingly perfect home and gain entry if so determined. This causes quite the headache for homeowners, especially since so much time and effort is put into keeping a house beautifully maintained.

Extreme Raccoon Damage

 

 

The destruction does not necessarily stop once a raccoon has gained entry into your home. Raccoons tear up insulation and storage. Also, they create foul latrines that can cause all sorts of problem. Raccoon feces can carry raccoon roundworm. Also, the smell of raccoon urine and feces can permeate into the living quarters of a home. If raccoons in an attic are left unchecked long enough, latrines can create weak spots and discoloration. Eventually, a latrine can cause a ceiling to collapse. In addition to the health concerns discussed already, raccoons are also hosts for mites, ticks, and fleas.

A raccoon issue should be taken care of sooner rather than later  for two important reasons. First, to prevent additional damage. Tri-State Wildlife Management initiates an Integrated Wildlife Management Program beginning with an inspection and customer education, followed by removal of intrusive wildlife and repair of wildlife damage.

The second reason to take care of a raccoon problem now rather than later is, springtime is baby time. If a female raccoon has taken up residence in your home, babies are likely to follow come sometime between late February to June. (As a side note, juvenile raccoons have been found year round, but the majority are born February to June.) Once juveniles are born, TSWM canvasses your attic determined to find them.

TSWM also offers prevention, restoration, and cleanup services. Cleanup services are tailored to fit the needs of individual customers and individual situations. Sometimes cleanups are as simple as spot removal but can be as extensive as a full attic clean out which entails ridding the attic of all insulation. As a full service company, TSWM will take care of your wildlife issue from start to finish.

Newport, KY Raccoon Removal

Newport, KY Raccoon Removal: Raccoons are common city dwellers that tend to wreak havoc whenever living in close proximity to humans. At the very least they may overturn and rummage through trash cans and eat pet food. If that isn’t headache enough, raccoons are also notorious for damaging homes and property in an attempt to gain access to the inside of your home. Their clawing and tearing habits often lead to successful entry into attics, chimneys, and other crevices of homes and businesses.

Tri-State Wildlife Management typically receives calls from homeowners about noises in the attic or on the roof. Although a thorough home inspection performed by Tri-State Wildlife Management will confirm what the intruder might be, there are some clues that may identify the culprit easily. First, the time of day that noises in the attic are heard may tip off TSWM to what animal is invading the home. Since raccoons are nocturnal, movement during the night, especially exiting and re-entering an attic, is a strong sign of raccoon. Also, the time of year in relation to the types of noises heard may also help determine what type of wildlife in entering the home. As mentioned earlier in the paragraph, TSWM will do a thorough inspection of the home to determine the culprit. The inspection also identifies entry points on the home and other at-risk areas. A removal and exclusion plan is then put into motion to ensure all violators are caught and that no new violators can re-enter, regardless of wildlife species.

Tri-State Wildlife Management also offers prevention, restoration, and cleanup services for all wildlife issues. TSWM uses a variety of products and methods for repairs, prevention, and restoration.  TSWM seals homes and businesses with specialized wildlife restoration products, installs custom and standard raccoon chimney caps, vent screens/coverings, as well as barrier walls and fencing. TSWM provides habitat modification as another preventative technique. When cleanup services are needed or desired, it typically involves the removal of bird, bat, or raccoon droppings, and contaminated debris from attics or other wildlife invaded areas.

Newport, KY Wildlife Removal

Newport, KY Wildlife Removal: Wild animals in the Greater Cincinnati area are actively seeking warm shelter for the cold winter. Although outdoor den sites are typical for many rodents during the hot summer, those same den sites are not ideal this time of year. Oftentimes, raccoons and squirrels seek out shelter in the attics, chimneys, and other crevices of homes and businesses. Bats and mice are also typical residences of attics. If you hear noises in your attic, ceiling, wall, or chimney, you probably have a wild animal(s) in your home.

All homes can at one time or another be vulnerable to wildlife entry; however, homes in need of repair are most at risk. “In need of repair” can mean anything as simple as a loose gutter or shingle, or as complicated as chimney tuck pointing or needing a whole new roof. Due to the historical nature of the homes in Newport, KY, many homes may be in need of some type of repair, be it simple or complicated.

It is important to mention, however, that a home or building may not need any repairs, but is still vulnerable to a wildlife invasion. Many factors play into this, so we’ll explore a few of them here:

First, if wildlife are attracted to your yard, they will be more attracted to your home as well. Mature trees, shrubbery, overgrown landscaping, bird feeders, pet food and garbage cans left outside, etc., all contribute to an increase in wildlife in your yard. If squirrels and raccoons are using your yard as a place to live in the warmer months, they may not look any further than your home as a place to stay for the winter.

Another factor that makes some homes and buildings more vulnerable than others is the type of outdoor construction materials used. Brick is less vulnerable than siding, and wood is typically the most vulnerable. Other building materials are also very important, including chimney capping, fascia, drip edge, etc.

A related factor is the quality of workmanship. In the Greater Cincinnati area, it’s common for builders to not install drip edge on homes. Lack of drip edge gives squirrels enough space to begin gnawing their way into a home. It is also enough space for raccoons to get a grip to start ripping their way in. Lastly, lack of drip edge gives bats or mice enough clearance to enter into a home.

As a full service company, Tri-State Wildlife Management initiates an Integrated Wildlife Management Program beginning with an inspection and customer education, followed by removal of intrusive wildlife and repair of wildlife damage. TSWM also offers prevention, restoration, and cleanup services.

Tri-State Wildlife Management uses a variety of products and methods for repairs, prevention, and restoration.  TSWM seals homes and businesses with specialized wildlife restoration products, installs custom and standard chimney caps, vent screens/coverings, as well as barrier walls and fencing. TSWM provides habitat modification as another preventative technique.

Squirrel on Roof

Wildlife Removal Independence, KY: The weather has certainly turned much colder this week, so wild animals in Independence, KY and other neighborhoods in the greater Cincinnati area are taking advantage of the warmth that attics of homes and businesses offer. The main 3 culprits of attic-dwelling wildlife include raccoons, squirrels, and bats.

Raccoons are unpleasant house “guests”, since they not only tear apart your home to seek entry, but also they create smelly, unsanitary latrines in your attic insulation. Squirrels are also bad house “guests”, as they will chew entryways and gnaw on EVERYTHING in your attic, including rafters and electrical wires! Of course this is a major hazard, as chewed rafters can weaken the entire structure and chewed electrical wires can start a fire. If you have bats in your attic, you may not sense their presence until the spring, as they’re beginning to hibernate, but they also create unsanitary latrines and and can carry rabies, both important reasons to keep them out of your house. Squirrels and raccoons will stay active throughout the winter, the only exception being if there is a long bout of extreme weather.

All three of these wild animals are prevalent in Independence, KY as well as the rest of Northern Kentucky, Cincinnati, and Southeast Indiana. As Independence grows in human population, more neighborhoods and homes are built, while less natural habitat is available to wildlife. It’s a common misconception that wild animals suffer from neighborhood developments, while the truth is that houses and other man-made structures are much more comfortable habitats for wildlife. Of course, this is to the displeasure of the unfortunate businesses and homeowners who happen to be targeted by wildlife.  Bats, squirrels, and raccoons all take advantage of these man-made structures, especially during the colder months. They are much more comfortable spending their time in warm attic insulation as opposed to den or roost sites in nature.

There are measures that businesses and homeowners in Independence, KY can take to deter wildlife from seeking refuge in their building or home. First, habitat modification, such as keeping landscaping tidy, trees trimmed, and garbage cans and pet food inside can go a long way in keeping wildlife disinterested in your home. Unfortunately, though, with wildlife, there are never any guarantees. You may do everything right, and raccoons, squirrels, and bats may still target your home. Another measure businesses and homeowners can take to try and prevent wildlife entry is to have a wildlife home inspection.

Tri-State Wildlife Management offers thorough, affordable home inspections. You may choose to do this as a precautionary measure, or you may already suspect something has already taken up residence in your attic or home. Tri-State Wildlife Management’s technician / carpenter who performs the inspection, will identify any wildlife entries as well as weak, vulnerable areas that could become future entries. It may seem excessive to a business or homeowner that the vulnerable areas be identified, but it is actually very important; raccoons, squirrels, and bats will all attempt, usually successfully, to reenter a home even after their entry is repaired.

Once an inspection is performed on your home, Tri-State Wildlife Management will be able to tell you whether your home, as of the date of the inspection, is low risk for wildlife entry, or if there is evidence of wildlife entry or vulnerable areas. If there is evidence of wildlife entry, TSWM will suggest a removal and exclusion plan suited to fit your individual needs. As mentioned previously, wildlife will cause damage to your home once excluded if they are not removed from the area, so an exclusion only solution is really no solution at all. TSWM has a carpenter on staff that will repair areas on your home that are being used as entry points, and areas that may be susceptible to future wildlife entry. TSWM only uses wildlife grade construction materials to further deter wildlife from reentering your home. In addition, TSWM offers a variety of wildlife grade chimney caps and covers to prevent wildlife intrusion. Another common wildlife service offered by Tri-State Wildlife Management is attic clean-ups, which are usually performed when an attic has significant raccoon or bat latrines.

TSWM prides itself in being a professional, quality, full service company that will take care of you from the first phone call until your wildlife problem is solved. Call today to schedule your affordable home inspection.

Raccoon Removal Ft. Thomas, KY: Is your home safe from intruders? You probably take all of the typical precautions such as locking your doors and windows and closing your garage door. You may even have a security system installed to protect yourself and property from intruders. But these safety measures do not protect you and your property from all types of intruders.

There’s another type of intruder that doesn’t use the door or windows to break in; instead, the type of intruder we’re talking about can come through any construction gap the size of a softball or sometimes even smaller. If a construction gap doesn’t exist, they have no problem creating one by ripping off shingles or fascia board to gain access to an attic. They also commonly take advantage of uncapped or “under capped” chimneys.

Raccoon Removal Ft. Thomas, KY

Raccoon Removal
Ft. Thomas, KY

The type of intruder we’re talking about is raccoons. In the fall, raccoons enter attics and chimneys looking for a warm, cozy den to spend the winter. In northern Kentucky and Cincinnati, raccoons still venture outside their den site to find food, but they may stay holed up if there is a hard winter storm or extreme temperatures.  Even though raccoons do not invade your home to intentionally steal or cause you harm, nonetheless, they can wreak havoc in your home and cause damage to your attic and/or property.  Although raccoons will leave to find food, they are not leaving to find a restroom. Raccoons typically make latrines in attic insulation.

If you have had raccoons invade your home in the past, chances are, you will have violators again. It’s important to exclude raccoons from entering your home by repairing any entry points or at-risk areas with wildlife grade construction materials. Past violators will go to great lengths to reenter an attic den site, even ripping apart repaired entryways and finding other vulnerable areas. In addition, raccoons can smell homes that are/have been occupied by other raccoons, which attracts them to the home.

In order to prevent a new raccoon invasion, not only should raccoons be excluded with wildlife grade materials, raccoons should be trapped and removed from the area. Also, it might be necessary to do an attic clean-out of soiled insulation. This may help in preventing new raccoon invaders from entering your home.

Just as you lock your doors and windows and close your garage to prevent intruders, and even subscribe to a security system, you should prevent wildlife home invaders. Tri-State Wildlife Management can help you get your home ready to stand against wildlife intruders such as raccoons. As a full service company, we initiate an Integrated Wildlife Management Program beginning with an inspection and customer education, followed by removal of intrusive wildlife and repair of wildlife damage. TSWM also offers prevention, restoration, and cleanup services.

Our courteous staff works for you to provide cost effective prevention, or when needed, a solution to your raccoon intrusion and/or damage issue.

squirrel removal Covington, KY

Summer is over and fall is well underway. This means that wild animals are beginning to prepare for the cold winter. Squirrels are fattening up on mast (tree fruits and nuts), which helps them stay warm and acts as a reserve when food is scarce during the winter. Squirrels also collect and bury food in shallow holes (caches) to be eaten later. Raccoons are eating more too in preparation for winter when food is more scarce. In the Greater Cincinnati area, raccoons may become inactive if there is severe cold or a long winter storm, but they typically still venture out of their dens in search of food.

Not only are squirrels and raccoons fattening up in preparation for winter, but they are also searching for a nice, comfortable den. In cities and suburbs, wildlife often takes advantage of man-made structures such as houses; more specifically, attics and chimneys. Squirrels and raccoons typically return to their previous cold weather den sites, so if wildlife has taken up residence in an attic in years past, most likely, they will return. Habituated squirrels and raccoons must be trapped and the entry points sealed in order to prevent reentry. It’s important to note that if a homeowner has had squirrel or raccoon issues in the past but did not trap the violators, they will attempt, usually successfully, to gain access into a home by chewing a new entry. In a similar scenario, if a homeowner has wildlife entry issues in the past, it may come back to haunt them. Both habituated and non-habituated squirrels and raccoons can smell the scent from an attic that has had squirrel or raccoon inhabitants, so it’s important to be on the alert for any new entries and to repair any vulnerable areas (potential entries) on a structure.

Raccoon Control & Removal

Raccoon Removal Covington, KY: Are raccoons ransacking your attic, soffits, and shingles?As the weather turns colder, raccoons are making their way into homes and structures. Raccoons can be one of the most destructive animals while trying to get into homes or once habituated to a home.  They are so curious and active that they tear into soffits and eves with a breeze, spread shingles like an industrial wood chipper, and pull ill-fitted caps off of chimneys. Tri-State Wildlife Management offers raccoon removal in Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky.  TSWM will eliminate the violators and the havoc that they may have left behind. If you suspect raccoons in the attic or hear noises in the chimney or fireplace, call Tri-State Wildlife Management.  We are experts at eliminating our customers’ raccoon problems with our raccoon removal, exclusion, and repair services. We can diagnose your problem, remove the raccoons, and provide the necessary repairs to cover holes and construction gaps that are allowing them entry into your home or business. We also offer full attic cleanups after raccoon removal!

The common raccoon Procyon lotor is probably best known for its mischievous-looking face mask which undoubtedly matches his behavior.  Raccoons are usually a grizzled grey in color with a tail marked by seven alternating black and brown rings. Body coloration can vary from albino, (white) to melanistic (black) or brown. An annual molt, or shedding, of the fur begins in the spring and lasts about three months.

Tri-State Wildlife Management is fully insured, and we stand behind all of our work.
