One of the most intelligent wildlife creatures that Milwaukee residents encounter periodically is the raccoon. This animal whose appearance is reminiscent of a masked robber behaves in just that fashion, stealthily making its way into your home and then snatching whatever it can to feed on. Many Milwaukee homes have faced the terror of these animals.
Inside the Mind of a Raccoon
But why do raccoons love to take over people’s attics and walls cavities? Well these nocturnal critters are very opportunistic. They habitually seek out places that are already ideal instead of building their own dens. In the wild, they seek out spaces that would be hollowed out, like trees or caverns. They have absolutely no qualms about taking over spaces that have been built by other animals…including human beings!
A full grown adult male will weigh up to 35 pounds and be about 3 feet long from tip of the nose to the end of their tail
They will not quietly confine themselves to the dens they establish on your property either. Constant rummaging sounds will alert homeowners to the fact that raccoons are foraging both inside and outside the home. At nights, they leave their dens and go searching for food in your garbage… and will try to gain access into your pantry too! And since they are not in the habit of storing their food, this will be a regular occurrence.
Why Raccoons Must Go
It’s not just the annoyance that makes raccoons undesirable wildlife tenants. It is also the plethora of diseases to which their very presence exposes your family. Get rid of them as soon as there is a sign of their presence. Better yet why not establish your defenses before they get in? If this is done by seeking professional help for effective raccoon removal, Milwaukee residents will get back to enjoying the peace and sanctity of their homes again.

Prevention: The Best Option
We strongly recommend protecting your property before raccoons threaten to enter. This means securing your home before the cold seasons which is when these and other wild animals tend to seek shelter. Our protective services against raccoon invasion includes a variety of strategies. Here are just a couple to get you started:
- Identifying and addressing all potential entrance points
- Working with you to develop new habits and routines (such as those related to garbage disposal) that will lessen the ‘raccoon appeal’ of your home.
Operation Delete Infestation, The Skedaddle Way
If you already have raccoon infestation, the need for expert intervention is dire. Raccoons are not only smart, strong and good with their paws, they are also quite heavy and destructive. They can rip your home apart by pulling up sections of roofing and boards and chewing through electrical pipes or wiring (which creates the additional risk of fire) among other things.
Our assess and removal services will ensure that all dens and potential dens are identified and dismantled after raccoons (and raccoon babies if any) are removed from your home. This is followed by cleaning and clearing, during which biological evidence of the animals are disinfected, reducing the likelihood of one or more of the home’s residents contracting any illness.
When these two phases are over we usually recommend the protective services as outlined above to ensure that you never have to face another raccoon invasion. Contact Skedaddle today! By letting our experts in, you won’t let the raccoons win!
