Raccoons are seen to some as cute fluffy creatures who don’t mean harm. To others, these masked bandits are nothing but trouble and will ruin your yard by strewing trash all over. What both sides fail to recognize most of the time, however, is how extensive the damages are that raccoons can make if they get in your home.
Know the Facts
Although raccoons prefer the cover of tall trees in the woods, urban sprawl has made it difficult for them to enjoy their natural habitat, so they have taken to invading your property in search of warm shelter and access to food. It’s quite easy for raccoons to gain access to your home since they have little thumbs and are extremely dexterous. They also may choose to stick around your yard, eating your trash or burrowing under the structure of your home. Since raccoons are social creatures, there will almost never be a raccoon acting alone when breaking into your property.
Know the Signs
Apart from merely seeing raccoons playing around your property, some other signs will indicate that you may have a raccoon problem in your home. Some of these signs may include:
- Droppings in or around your home about the size of a small dog’s
- Smells of urine or feces emanating through your house
- Loud thumping, purring, scratching, or crying noises coming from your attic or walls
- You pets behaving strangely in your home
