Damage: Raccoons may damage insulation, drywall, or other parts of your home in their search for food or nesting materials.

Property Damage Raccoons Cause

Most damage caused by raccoons occurs during the early spring when females are pregnant. Without professional raccoon removal, raccoons will destroy soffits, tear off shingles, remove siding and chimney caps, and take off mushroom vent caps just to gain access to attics.

Raccoons can gnaw on wood, tear up insulation, and damage drywall in search of food or nesting materials. They can also chew on electrical wires, which can be a fire hazard.

Once inside they will destroy insulation and wires to modify the house to their liking requiring animal control services. Raccoon droppings pose another threat altogether. Their droppings may contain raccoon roundworm. Raccoons are the number one carrier of rabies which can spread canine distemper.

What to do if you have raccoons destroying yard or  property?

It is important to address raccoon problems as soon as possible to avoid further damage and potential health hazards. Contact a professional wildlife control service to safely and humanely remove raccoons and prevent them from returning.

Start by bringing in all pet foods at night. Keep trash in cans that can be locked or secured. In gardens, the use of electric fences may keep your food safe. If raccoons are inside your home, raccoon control and removal including trapping and exclusion are necessary.

Raccoons must first be removed, then all entrance points should be sealed. After raccoon removal is complete, the animal feces should be cleaned up and the area disinfected. Raccoons are nocturnal and sleep during the day. If you see a raccoon active during the day, DO NOT approach it. Call Tri-County Wildlife Control ASAP!
