Fort Wayne Ind. – Our technicians were called to a raccoons in the chimney call. Whenever the chimney is missing a cap or the cap is damaged, animal entry via the chimney is imminent.
In the photos below, you will notice the scratches and hair at the top of the chimney. Our experienced technicians often diagnose problems like this almost immediately, and promptly get to fixing the problem. After barricading a cage trap over the chimney, the animal removal tech shooed the mother coon out with a chimney brush, straight into the cage. He then removed the babies and installed a new animal-proof chimney cap.
As you can see, this chimney is missing the cap. Raccoons in the chimney are a lot more likely if your cap is missing or damaged on the chimney.
Our wildlife removal experts placed or “barricaded” a trap over the chimney and ran the mother raccoon up and into the trap with a chimney brush. She remained unharmed in the process.
The adolescent raccoons were also removed from this Fort Wayne, Indiana chimney.
The top of the chimney is covered in raccoon hair, and weather related damage because there is no chimney cap. Keep animals out of the chimney by calling AAC to inspect and replace your damaged or missing chimney cap.
You can barely see the adolescent raccoons in the bottom of this chimney liner. American Animal Control, LLC technicians remove hundreds of animals from chimneys every year. Call 877-264-3638 for immediate assistance.
