To get into the home, they have to make pretty large entrances, so there will be a good deal of damage, usually around the eaves. Once inside, raccoons may continue to do extensive damage to wiring, insulation, and woodwork.
Unlike many types of rodents and wildlife that will leave droppings and urine trails sporadically around the home, raccoons typically use the same spot over and over again. If you notice one spot with a large concentration of urine and feces, you're likely dealing with raccoons and not another pest.
You will hear the pitter-patter of not-so-little feet in your attic, walls, or even under the house. Raccoons can be very large, so you'll likely hear them even before you see them.
Time of the season
Because they're nocturnal, you're more likely to hear increased activity after dark. Additionally, raccoons are much more likely to come inside during mating and nesting season in the early spring.
While having a raccoon in your home can be unsettling, the Critter Stop team has you covered. Our four-step process makes sure entrances are sealed, raccoons are taken from your home, the entire house is sanitized, and that deterrents are put in place to prevent raccoons from coming back. When you're ready to get started, reach out to the Critter Stop team to schedule an inspection and price quote from our Dallas-Fort Worth residential wildlife removal experts.
