Tucson pest control

We are Arizona's top experts in wildlife and raccoon control. We are not a typical Tucson raccoon control or pest control company. We don't treat wild animals like insects, because they are not! You can't just use poison to get rid of them. You also can't just set a few traps on the ground and call it good. Each situation is unique. And remember, if you have raccoons living in your house, it is almost certainly a female with a litter of young inside. These juveniles must be removed by hand, or they will starve to death and die. And after they are gone, the entry holes into the house must be sealed with professional repairs. Unlike most Tucson pest control, we focus on complete and permanent solutions, by following these steps:

  • Inspect the entire house, ground to roof, and the attic
  • Seal shut all entry areas with professional grade steel
  • If in attic, we remove the baby raccoons by hand
  • Technical and human raccoon trapping appropriate to situation
  • When necessary, we clean raccoon droppings and replace insulation

Tucson Raccoon Control Tip: Why Do Raccoons Die Inside Houses or Attics? 
Raccoons are quite large creatures. As a result, when they die, they give off a horrible stench. To give you a bit of perspective, you know how horrible your house smells when you have a dead rat or mouse somewhere? Multiply that by 100. That's how concentrated the smell of a dead raccoon is!

You might be curious: why exactly would a raccoon die in my house or attic? Well, there are a whole lot of reasons why this happens. In this article, we explore some of the main reasons a dead raccoon might be in your home. 

  • Stuck in a Tight Spot
Raccoons are quite large, and as they try to maneuver through tight spaces in your attic, they might get stuck. It is also not uncommon for raccoons to get stuck within walls. When this happens, they struggle to free themselves, but to no avail. As time passes by, their energy level diminishes to the point where they begin to pass away slowly. If no one intervenes, the raccoon will eventually die of starvation. 

  • Sealed in the Attic
When some homeowners find a potential entry role in their roof area, they enthusiastically seal it off. However, they fail to thoroughly inspect their attic to be sure there are no animals trapped there. When the entry holes of a raccoon are sealed, the raccoon cannot get out. If it is unable to create a new hole by destroying another part of your roof, then its fate is sealed. 

  • Abandoned Babies
Female raccoons love to raise their kits in the attic because of the warmth it provides, as well as the safety from predators. At dusk, she leaves them there in search of food and later returns to feed them. This continues for the next two months until the kits are strong enough to venture into the wild. 

If during this period the mother doesn't return, the babies are left on their own and they will eventually die as they are too young to fend for themselves. Abandonment can be caused by the death of the mother when she's outside - for instance, she might have gotten hit by a car or fallen prey to a predator. Also, trapping and relocation of the mother raccoon without checking to see if there are kits will result in forced abandonment.

  • Poisoning
You've probably heard a thousand times not to use poisons for wild critters like raccoons. When a raccoon consumes poison, the poison damages the internal organs of the raccoon, resulting in internal bleeding. As paralysis sets in, the raccoon recedes to a secluded part of your attic or house, where it eventually dies. 

  • Diseases and Injury
What happens when you get sick or injured? That's right, you seek medical attention or take medicine. In the wild, animals neither have access to medication nor the hospital. Hence, they rely fully on their body's immune system to fight off diseases and heal injuries.

Viral diseases like rabies and distemper affect the gastrointestinal, respiratory, and neurological functions of raccoons. As the animal dies, they are gripped by violent spasms, and often uncontrollable discharge from their snouts. 

One major cause of injury in raccoons is territorial fights. Raccoons are territorial animals, and male raccoons fight for mating and space rights. These fights are usually messy and vicious, and the loser usually incurs serious wounds and injuries. 

If a raccoon contracts a serious disease or incurs serious injury, its body might be unable to heal quickly enough. If that happens, the raccoon is bound to die. But as we've highlighted, the raccoon will go to a secluded part of your home to give up the ghost. 

  • Old Age
Like all living things, raccoons cannot live forever. The average lifespan of a raccoon in the wild is five years. But with abundant access to food and shelter, raccoons can live well over a decade. If you have an old raccoon living in your house or attic, it can die of natural causes. 

Wrap Up
If you have a dead raccoon in your house, you need to get rid of it as soon as possible. That's the only way to stop the terrible odor and prevent the spread of diseases. Preferably, you should get a professional wildlife removal company to help you.
