Our experienced technicians will humanely remove animals or nests from the chimney, attic or
vent, and install proper animal/rain caps on the chimney or screens on the holes for you to
prevent the same problem happening. It is illegal to locate and trap wildlife. Therefore animal
will be released at the same site.
We carry a very large selection of styles and sizes of animal/ rain caps, which prevent entry of
water, leaves, animals, birds and other debris into your fireplace or furnace chimney. Copper,
stainless steel, galvanized steel; round, square, and rectangle are a few of the choices available.

Raccoons usually live together in small, loose groups. They are active at night, and by day they
retire to dens or resting sites. Dens are made above ground in tree cavities, chimneys and attics,
as well as underground in old woodchuck burrows, storm sewers or crawl spaces under buildings.
Especially, with dens in chimney and attics, serious damages can be caused to your house.
Mating usually occurs in January or February, and a litter of four or five young are born in April or
May. Cubs are weaned at about 2 months, but they may remain with their mother through their
Raccoon can carry rabies, which is as dangerous to humans as any other strain. Any animal with
suspected rabis should not be approached.
Most common problem with squirrels is a large nest ( Normally 2-5 feets) building in your
chimney, which cause smoking or even chimney fire. Also squirrels can enter your home and
attic through existing holes or they will chew their way through weakened areas of roofs,
vents and soffits to gain access to a warm safe attic.
