Raccoon Feces & Urine - Do They Cause Disease?
If you've had raccoons living in your attic, it's a good idea to have the attic cleaned. Raccoons leave their waste behind when they inhabit an attic. Sometimes there's a specific raccoon latrine, and most of the poop is piled up in one spot. Sometimes it's spread out all over the attic. Same goes for urine as well. Sometimes it's concentrated in an area, sometimes spread all over the place. The poop is easy to pick up and remove, as in the above photo, because the droppings are large. But the urine soaks into the insulation or even the sheetrock (drywall) or wood in the attic. And not all feces or urine will be accessible to remove by hand. That's when it's important to clean up and properly fog the attic to eliminate the odor and potential unsanitary conditions.
Many of Michigan's wild animals have learned to adapt and even thrive in our homes. For example some wildlife have found that attics make great places to live. Other animals find refuge under homes or porches. Invariably, these animals cause damage.

Wildlife control is a constant need in many areas. The populations of humans are growing and so also are the populations of wildlife. As a result, there is an increase in the instances of conflicts between the owners of homes and wildlife. Our team uses humane methods of controlling wildlife to mediate such situations in such a way that there is harmony between people and the animals. The first process in the removal of wildlife from the home is trapping. However, the process does not end here as the animals have to be excluded after they are trapped. If the animals are not excluded, they can easily locate places they had inhabited earlier and go back there. This is because they can trace the odor that is left behind by the hair, blood, feces, urine and dead carcasses. Our team ensures that once the trapping is done, the wildlife must be excluded and animal proofing done to ensure that the nuisance is fixed permanently. In proofing, we use materials that are far much stronger that the materials through which the animals tore to access the home. The wildlife exclusion services that our team offers are professional and innovative for all issues to do with wildlife.
Our team of experts offers various wildlife control services which include the following,
We use appropriate procedures to ensure that we trap just the animal you want trapped and no other. We do this by using species-specific techniques of trapping animals. Upon trapping, our team relocates the animal to a wildlife preserve so that the animal cannot access your home again. This is because if the animal is not relocated, the odor from feces, urine, dead carcasses and blood can help the animal trace back your home and come in again.
Our team cleans up any wastes that have been left behind by animals in your raccoon, walls or under the house. A special detergent based on an enzyme is used in the clean-up so that the odor is removed as it can attract other animals if not cleared.
REMOVAL OF DEAD ANIMALS
When there animals in your home, some will die there. The dead carcasses can produce a foul smell when they decay which can make you uncomfortable in your home. Our team removes the dead carcasses from all the locations, be it in the walls, in the attic or under the house. After the removal of these carcasses the house is sprayed with a deodorant to exclude the smell which may attract other animals if left.
We remove any colonies of bats that are in your home and seal your roof in such a way that it is bat-proof. This ensures that your house is no longer accessible to bats.
