Got a raccoon in your attic?

Raccoons are nocturnal creatures that look cute and cuddly but are sneaky and dangerous. With their dark mask and mischievous curiosity, raccoons always seem to be up to no good. It spends a majority of its night scavenging for food. Raccoons prefer wooded areas near a water source as this is their natural habit, however, they have adapted extremely well to the urban environment.  Instead of making their home in a tree, they often nestle in accessible areas in your home such as an attic or chimney, or underneath a deck, house or shed. However, if a raccoon has made it into your home, it will not take long to hear them scurrying about over your head.

It may be hard to imagine how a raccoon can get into your attic but low hanging or adjacent branches to your house provide easy access.  Raccoons are relentless pests, so anything exposed or that can be detached, such as roof vents, chimneys, or fascia boards offer a potential entrance into your home.  Raccoons find attics to be a great environment to raise their young because of the warmth they provide and the abundance of materials that can be used to build a nest.  They will rip insulation off the attic walls and chew through electrical wires, as well as destroy air ducts. They will use your attic as your restroom; faeces will begin to pile up and urine will seep down to your ceiling.

Raccoon carry many diseases. The most common disease is rabies.  Rabies is a deadly disease caused by the neurotropic rabies virus carried in saliva and transmitted by bites.  Raccoons also carry roundworms that can be found in their feces.  Roundworm eggs are resistant to disinfectants and can stick to all types of surfaces. Human exposure to diseases and parasites carried by raccoons needs proper medical attention.

Recently the raccoons have caused a nuisance with their presence around residents who are facing troubles caused by raccoons.

The raccoons have got so wild that the residents are considering those as “zombies”.

DENVER — A dog owner wants to warn others after his 12-pound Daschund was attacked by a raccoon in his own backyard.

Zachary Rosanski let his dog out after he got off work and heard a horrible noise. When he opened up the door, his dog ran back inside and that’s when he spotted a large raccoon in a tree.

His dog, Bastian, was bleeding from his throat area and on his face. They immediately rushed him to the veterinarian.

“He ended up having a puncture wound on top of his nose, two puncture wounds on the bottom of his nose and about an inch gash underneath his chin that was split wide open,” said Rosanski.

The vet told Rosanski his case wasn’t isolated. Denver7 talked with the veterinarian and she said they saw three raccoon attacks in just one week.

These wily creatures not only cause physical damage but also economic damage. Being inquisitive as well as dexterous by nature, they amount to huge damage in the wire and cable industry. They will chew wires and cables more often out of curiosity. Moreover, most insurance companies don’t cover damage caused due to raccoons. They don’t pay for the animal damage because it is seen as a direct result of homeowner neglect.

The time has come to protect our loved ones as well as our precious belongings from these raccoons.

Combirepel™ is the product of years of tremendous efforts coupled with innovative technology. Our product Combirepel™ works effectively in repelling rodents and aggressive animals like raccoons. It is one of its kind non-toxic, non-hazardous and eco-friendly rodent and animal aversive.

The product triggers a fear response in rodents thus protecting the application. It causes severe temporary distress to the mucous membrane of the rodents due to which the pest stays away from the application. The product triggers an unpleasant reaction in case if the pest tries to gnaw away the application. After encountering the above-mentioned emotions, the animal instinctively perceives it with something it should stay away from and stores this information for future reference. The fact that certain rodents are repelled is mimicked by other rodents as well. Thus, the other rodents too stay away from the applications. The unpleasant experience is imprinted within the animal’s memory and passed on to its progeny.

It is available in the form of the masterbatch which can be incorporated into polymeric applications like cables and wires, pipes, agricultural films, etc. This will prevent the raccoon attack on the polymeric applications.
