Raccoon Removal: Signs There’s a Raccoon in Your Attic

  • Raccoons are one of the largest critters that will try and get into your home. For that reason, you should be able to hear the raccoon scurrying around up in your attic. Most people remark that they hear thumping noises coming from the attic if there’s a raccoon up there.
  • You probably won’t hear the raccoon moving around in your attic during the day. Raccoons are nocturnal animals, so chances are, you’ll probably hear them moving around late in the evening and into the night.
  • If possible, look for signs that the raccoon has brought nesting materials into your attic. While most raccoons will bring in twigs, leaves, and other debris from outside, they’re also notorious from tearing up insulation to create beds for themselves.
  • Even if you’re not completely sure there’s a raccoon in your attic, you may have seen raccoons hanging around your property. For example, if you have seen a raccoon on your roof or one climbing up or down your downspout, these are signs it could also be living in your attic.

If you notice any of these signs, don’t let the raccoon get too comfortable. Call us right away for prompt, professional, and effective raccoon removal services.
