Damage and Nuisance Caused by Raccoons
Raccoons are climbers and usually enter people’s homes using the roof of their house. Either through roof vents, roof soffit intersections, chimneys or anywhere they can find or make a point of entry. Once inside they nest, damaging insulation, and chewing wires which can cause irritating noises late at night. They will also use their new nesting ground as a bathroom which can be hazardous as raccoon’s feces is highly toxic.
