RACCOONS IN WALLS
We receive calls frequently from people describing loud noises in the walls of their home. These noises can be caused by a number of animals but if it sounds like it is from a larger animal, it is likely a raccoon. The question most homeowners in Springfield have next is “how did a raccoon get into the wall?. The most common ways are through the attic or the crawlspace. It can be a very difficult task to find the entry point for anyone untrained. Our team knows exactly what to look for so the unwanted creatures are trapped or removed quickly and entrances are sealed before any more can get into the wall. You should remember to wait for a professional to remove the animal, do not try on your own. Raccoons are aggressive and strong, especially when they feel threatened. Attempting to capture one on your own can be dangerous, not to mention the mess you could make removing parts of the wall. Don’t worry, it is very unlikely that the raccoon will get out of the wall on its own and get into your interior rooms. Schedule an appointment when you hear the first sign of this problem.
