Raccoons are one of the most frequent calls we get from homeowners. Raccoons love to enter homes by breaking into your attic, especially mother raccoons looking for a safe place to have her babies. We have seen raccoons rip straight through roof shingles, soffits, chimney flashings, and roof vents. Once inside your attic, raccoons wreak havoc on insulation, wires, and ventilation.
At Advanced Wildlife Control, we believe in humane animal removal. Therefore, we will humanely live trap and relocate the raccoons 30+ miles away from your home. We usually caught around 1,000 raccoons each year!
Our customers are our #1 priority! At Advanced Wildlife Control, we want to make sure your animal problems are resolved in a timely manner. Therefore, our AWC professionals can usually be out at your property on the same day when you call or the following day.
Raccoons are scavengers and will eat anything like fish, berries, small rodents, and more. They are well known to feed in your garbage cans, giving them the iconic name of “trash pandas.”
Raccoons can be found throughout Wisconsin. They can be found in the forest, farmland, suburb, and city areas of Milwaukee. Raccoons will live in hollow trees and logs, brushy areas, abandoned buildings, barns, burrows, and sometimes in peoples’ attics or chimneys.
The breeding season for raccoons occurs from January to March. Once impregnated, a female raccoon will search for a safe, up-high place to have her babies. A male raccoon will actually kill baby raccoons to get the female back into heat. This is why raccoons find themselves in people’s attics or chimneys.
A female will give birth to 2-6 baby raccoons from mid-March to May. Baby raccoons open their eyes in about 23 days after birth. They will stay with their mother until fall and potentially through winter before going off on their own.
