Raccoons become a nuisance to homeowners in many ways. Raccoons love to raid unsecured trash cans. They steal food left outside for pets. They have even been known to enter homes through pet doors in search of food. Raccoons damage fruit and vegetable gardens too.
Raccoons are common in all areas of the United States, not just in Northern Virginia. They are easily identifiable by their very distinctive and trademark look – a black mask and furry ringed tail. Adult raccoons generally weigh between 10 to 35 lbs. and grow from 2′ to 3′ feet in length. They are omnivorous creatures and excellent climbers because of their dexterous fingers. Raccoons sleep during the day because they are nocturnal animals. So if you see a raccoon active during the day, DO NOT approach it because it may be aggressive or rabid. Raccoon Removal can be dangerous so call our Raccoon Trapping and Removal professionals immediately.
If you have a problem with raccoons and live in Fairfax County, Arlington County, Alexandria, Stafford County, and Fredericksburg, we can help you get rid of them.

Get Raccoons Out of Your Attic and Home
If you have a raccoon in your attic, please be very careful. Raccoons are aggressive and they will bite. One of the primary reasons a raccoon wants into your attic is to find a protected environment where they can give birth and raise their young. Female raccoons aggressively protect their young and therefore should be trapped and removed by a raccoon trapping and removal professional using the proper equipment.
Expert raccoon removal service begins with a thorough inspection of your property in order to find every potential access point, hiding place, and breeding ground for unwanted raccoons.

Removal of Raccoons Can Save You Money in the Long Run
Raccoons in the attic are one of the most common animal control calls we receive from homeowners. Raccoons have adapted well to Virginia’s urban and suburban environments of cities and towns. Raccoons know that human dwellings are great places to nest and raise their young. Virginia homes and businesses offer raccoons protection from the heat of summer and the cold of winter. This is especially important during the springtime raccoon mating season when raccoon babies are typically born. During this time, female raccoons can be very aggressive while “nesting” newborns.
Trapping and removing raccoons is a primary service call for BEDR Wildlife Removal Professionals because wildlife causes considerable damage to houses and represents a significant safety risk for families and homes. Raccoons destroy fascia boards. They tear off roof shingles and damage and remove the siding. Raccoons even remove chimneys and vent caps to access houses, chimneys, and attic spaces.
How raccoons get into your attic or home is one thing. What they do once inside is another. Raccoons damage and destroy attic, wall insulation, and electrical wiring to modify the environment to suit their nesting or “denning” purposes. Homeowners in Alexandria, Arlington, Fairfax, and Fredericksburg must quickly respond to remove raccoons from the attic to limit the damage and reduce the contamination and health risks posed by these nuisance pests.
Repair Raccoon Damage and Replace Contaminated Insulation in the Attic
Raccoons cause considerable damage to attics and homes in Virginia. Raccoons are among the most aggressive and destructive animals to deal with because they cause insulation damage, sheetrock damage, roofing, and shingle damage, as well as several other structural and environmental impacts. A raccoon is one of the least desirable animals in your attic, and that’s why our raccoon removal specialists respond to urgent and emergency requests for help.
If raccoons have been in your attic for any period, then insulation and wiring damage is the most common repair you’ll face. Raccoons contaminate attic insulation with fecal matter and urine, which, in addition to posing a health risk to families, will eventually cause the insulation to become matted and compressed. This allows heated air to escape into the attic and hot air to enter the home in the summer. Raccoons also cause damage to electrical wiring and vents.
If you hear sounds in your attic early in the morning or late at night, then the odds are that you have a raccoon in your attic. A trained, licensed Raccoon Removal professional should address this problem immediately.
We have experienced raccoon waste removal professionals and insulation contractors to help homeowners in Alexandria, Arlington, Fairfax, and Fredericksburg remove and replace attic insulation damaged by raccoons.
Trap and Remove Raccoons Quickly to Avoid Diseases
Raccoons in the attic can pose a significant health risk to families – especially those with children and pets. Raccoons carry diseases, such as Baylisascaris, which is an intestinal parasite known as “raccoon roundworm.” (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baylisascaris) This roundworm can infect people and various other animals, including dogs. There are several other diseases that raccoons are responsible for, including several forms of respiratory illnesses.
Raccoons in Arlington, Alexandria, Fredericksburg, and Fairfax often have roundworms, but they do not usually cause a severe problem for raccoons. However, roundworm eggs shed in raccoon droppings can cause mild to severe illness in other animals and humans. Raccoon roundworms can infect someone who accidentally ingests or inhales the parasite’s eggs.
Never touch or inhale raccoon droppings. Use rubber gloves and a mask when cleaning areas where raccoons have been, and keep young children and pets away from areas where raccoons concentrate. If washing raccoon droppings from a roof, watch where the run-off goes. Unfortunately, raccoon roundworm eggs can remain alive in soil and other places for several months.
If a raccoon bites or scratches you, immediately scrub the wound with soap and water. Be sure to flush the wound with tap water liberally. Remember, raccoons can carry rabies, so contact your physician and the local health department immediately. If your pet is bitten, follow the same cleansing procedure and contact your veterinarian.

What Does Raccoon Removal Cost In Fairfax, Arlington, and Alexandria?
Raccoon removal costs can vary dependent on the size of the infestation and the associated damage they have caused to the home and attic. Typically priced in two phases, the first is for trapping and removal of the raccoons. The second is the repair and exclusion work that must be done to keep raccoons from returning to the scene of the crime, so to speak. If you are just having the animals trapped and removed, you will pay between $500 to $800 dollars for an experienced wildlife trapper. See an expanded explanation of the various wildlife removal costs here.

Reviews For Removal of Wildlife
...very prompt and explained everything...
The guys were very prompt and explained everything that they found and needed to do. They set a trap for the unknown “critter” and came back the next day to empty it. They found and fixed the entrances and so far, no more “critters”! I never had to call to remind them about any of the work. In this area, that is a HUGE plus.
Prices very reasonable.
Responded immediately and was out the very next day. Took care of my problem. Prices very reasonable. Would definitely recommend to everyone!!
...pleased with the level of service.
They contacted me immediately, and I had next day service. In addition, they came back to review and follow up to make sure that the job was completed. They were friendly, and quick. I am pleased with the level of service.
