Why Do Raccoons Enter Homes?


Raccoon problems are common in many homes. They are active at night when they search for food, but take up dens during the day, often resulting with raccoons in attics and raccoons in garages of homes. In northern regions during the winter months, raccoons are in their dens the majority of the time, and homes provides the animals with a warm living space.

Have you been hearing scratching noises coming from above in your home ? Then you may have raccoons in the attic!

It is very common for raccoons to occupy attics through small holes in the construction of roofs in homes and businesses . Generally damage caused by raccoons in the attic includes building nests and gnawing on wires. Sometimes, raccoons can reposition themselves down into walls from the attic, which can then lead to other animal control problems. The most common way to identify if raccoons have entered your attic or other areas of your home or business is by noise or electrical damage.
