It’s no wonder these critters are deemed ‘bandits’ since raccoons can easily gain access to the inside of your home using their nimble and opposable fingers. Once inside, they can do a lot of damage, even more than squirrels, rats, and mice because of their sheer size. Know the signs of a raccoon infestation to make sure your family and home don’t suffer the consequences.
Unless they have young pups, raccoons will more than likely be traveling alone. Raccoons will scope out your property before they attempt to break in, so If you see one or two raccoons wandering around your property, look for the following signs to make sure they haven’t entered your home.
- Stains on your ceiling or walls as raccoon feces and urine soak into your insulation
- Irregular behavior displayed by pets as if there is another animal nearby
- Holes in your roof or soffits
- Loud thumps, wines, purrs, screeches, or any other strange noises in your attic
Additionally, if you spot raccoons around your home, you can trim branches of nearby trees that may lead to your roof. This will deter any curious raccoons from exploring and possibly finding a way into your home.
