Raccoons in attics are one of the biggest concerns a homeowner can have. These mammals can destroy a lot of material in a short amount of time.
They also return to the same areas during breeding and birthing seasons so while you thought they went away, odds are they will be back!
Attic insulation often needs to be removed, the area sanitized and new insulation put back after raccoons have made ‘toilets’ in your attic!
Raccoons will often tear soffit vents out to get inside and can tear through wood siding and roofs. This often happens when the female raccoon was excluded from her kits.
Before repairing an entry hole we highly recommend catching and removing the raccoon from your attic.
