How do you know if you have a raccoon in your attic?

Dealing with wildlife has become a very common thing in the world today. This is especially as humans continue to expand their developments so as to handle the ever growing population. It is important that you find ways to deal with any kind of wildlife invasion that you may have in the home so as to avoid all the things that are associated with them.

When it comes to raccoon, you may find that there are actually multiple raccoons or a single raccoon living within the home. Raccoons love the attic and you may find that they actually have a nest there. Wild animals are not the ones that can be kept as pets in homes. These are also not allowed to be entered in homes, attic, or any place where the human are to move about. This is just because of the threats and dangers which is caused by the wild animal’s presence.

Different kinds of wild animal’s love living in the attics and this includes possums, squirrels, pigeons, bats, mice as well as rats. Raccoons are also in this category. Most of the animals can also make use of other parts of the home including the soffits, the voids in walls, spaces that are in between the floors and so on. This therefore tells you that there are lots of places that can be used by animals as shelter within your own home.

The first way of dealing with a wild animal is to identify what animal it is. You may hear walking, scratching or scampering above. Raccoons are quite large and therefore their footsteps will sound heavy. It will be more like waking or thumping especially at night. You may hear the house after night fall or at dawn. Raccoons can also be vocal and they can make cries, chirps, and growls. When there are babies, the unique whining and crying of the babies can often be heard.

Raccoons sighting is the other way in which you can find out that there is a problem. Most people may get the chance to see the raccoon. It is rather large and cannot hide with the swift and silent moves as is the case with rats. They can also be active in the day especially raccoons on the attic.

The reason as to why they prefer the attic is because it is a perfect home. It is usually safe, dray, warm and all elements are kept away. Usually, the attic is very close to food sources for the animals that are urbanized.
