    Omega Animal Removal Gets Rid of Raccoons

    Everything we do for homeowners at Omega Animal Removal is meant to make you safe and comfortable in your home, including helping you understand why wildlife poses a threat to you and your family that goes far beyond mere inconveniences, like disturbing the quality of your sleep.

    Now that many raccoons live in urban areas, their relationship with feeding has changed from hunter of aquatic animals to simple, opportunistic scavenger. Raccoons are common in Orange County, California, they’re destructive and they’re named by the Center for Disease Control as the most dangerous attic-dwelling animal because of the Histoplasmosis spores spread by their feces. This infectious disease is caused by a fungus called Histoplasma capsulatum. Although it is not contagious and cannot be spread by raccoons themselves, it can be spread through their excrement. Most of the time people affected by histoplasmosis do not even know they have it because symptoms are so mild. These can include hoarseness, chills, pain in the joints and muscles, shortness of breath, loss of appetite, headache, nonproductive cough, a fever and general malaise.

    Your roof or attic makes a great nest for raccoons, and without regular monitoring and entry prevention using the highest quality metal, raccoons would continue to invade no matter how many times you remove them. One common type of property damage includes entry holes into your roof, which can make the structure prone to wind and water damage.

    How Omega Animal Removal Can Help With A Raccoon Problem

    Omega Animal Removal is the most trusted name in raccoon control, and our effective, cost-efficient 4-step process always begins with a diagnosis of the problem. This method is guaranteed for life against repeated occurrences of the infestation problem:

    1. First we examine the exterior and interior of the home looking for all possible points of entry in the roofline and eaves of the home.
    2. We then move to trapping and removal, making sure the raccoons infesting your home are caught in the most humane manner possible. This means using live traps or a catch pole.
    3. Then we perform exclusion of all entry points, which are sealed with the highest quality metal products to prevent re-entry.
    4. Finally, your attic or other space is decontaminated and restored to its original condition.

    Depending on the extent of your raccoon problem, restoration could be more simple or more complex, but will likely involve the removal and restoration of soiled insulation in addition to the removal of fecal material followed by our three-step fogging process that eliminates all bacteria, fungus and viruses from your home. It’s important to find out if your insurance covers raccoon damage, because you may be able to avoid paying for the entire process.

    To find out whether you are covered against raccoon damage, you need to see if you have a vermin exclusion clause in your policy. The definition of vermin is any small animal with habits that destroy your home, habits that your insurance company likely does not consider harmful enough to insure you against. In any case, Omega Animal Removal is the most permanent solution to your raccoon infestation problem. Don’t hesitate to call at the first sign of unwelcome visitors.
