Ocala Florida Raccoon Control Situation: Hello. I'm hoping you can give me some advise. We just purchase a 'cabin' that we are going to remodel. We knew there were some raccoons, but not to this extent. Basically, I'm having to gut the first floor, to remove the stained/soaked drywall and pounds of fesces. Disgusting. I'm opening up all the walls and ceiling, etc. But I'm afraid that the little buggers got urine on the rafters too. And since this house has been essentially closed up for years, the smell is likely deep into the wood, joists, rafters, etc.... Can you recommend some very specific products I can use to permanently eliminate the odors? I know getting rid of the drywall and insulation is a good start. FYI, I'm also way up here in WI. What shouild I do some general clean up with first?? Combination of bleach and water, etc?? vinegar?? Then after i've cleaned up a bit, what can I then spray or try to fog?? Or both!!! Third I'm then planning on painting everything with that Kilz stuff. Thoughts?? can you please help me and tell me that the smells will go away... that it's not like cat urine, my house can be saved and i don't need to burn it down to the ground?? THANK YOU!!!!!!
Hey David. I'm hoping for some free advice. I live in Michigan and I've just purchased a house that has a known raccoon problem in the attic. There is a spot on a bedroom ceiling where raccoon urine has leaked through and there is plenty of waste in the attic. I'm guessing the raccoons are still living up there (haven't taken possession of home yet). The house is getting a new roof and needs new insulation but first I need to get rid of the raccoons and have the attic cleaned up. Assuming I can get rid of the raccoons, what do I do as far as cleaning goes? I found a professional company who will remove the insulation, use a fogger to kill bacteria/disease, seal urine with killz, deodorize if needed and reinsulated. Total bill looks like it will be in the $5.50 - $6.50/sqft depending on type of insulation used. Is this at all reasonable? Can I do any of this myself and stay safe but also do a proper job? Not looking forward to spending close to $6,000 on something like this. Thanks in advance. Peter P.S. The house is a fixer upper to say the least... I knew about the raccoons before purchasing.
