A List Of Frequent Damages Raccoons Cause To Your Home And Attic Space
- Raccoons chew on electrical wiring. Also, they loosen electrical connections by pulling and walking on electric lines
- Raccoons compress attic insulation by walking and nesting on top. Hence, this reduces your attic thermal insulation factor – also referred to as R-Value.
- They defecate urine and feces into the attic insulation. As a result, this can cause severe health concerns.
- Raccoons create latrine areas where they drop their fecal matter. Ultimately their poop can start to show on the sheetrock inside the home. The raccoon droppings combined with the raccoon urine may seep through the ceiling. As a result, this produces round yellow and/or brown stains on the drywall texturing. Also, it’s not uncommon for attic raccoons to continue to use a unique location for their latrine for years. These latrines can grow in size over time to over 100 lbs. Frequently the contaminated area will weaken the rafters and the drywall ceiling. Hence, weakened rafters can collapse into the living space.
- Raccoons are also notorious for tearing the flexible ductwork in the attic. Also, they love ducting made of fiberglass. And, raccoons will make a nest out of this material.

How To Identify Raccoons And Health Concerns
The Northern Raccoon has a black mask and ringed tail. Also, they have an average life span of 5-6 years. But, they can also live up to 12 years. Raccoons usually breed in January but could be as late as July. Yet, if the first litter of raccoon babies doesn’t survive, the sow will breed again with a boar in the same year.
The presence of raccoons in your home can cause property damages, diseases, and may even do harm to your pets. Also, raccoons are vectors of rabies and other harmful diseases. For example, these diseases include distemper, leptospirosis, parvovirus, and raccoon roundworm.

Raccoons Common Entry Area
Raccoons are proficient climbers. For example, they locate common entry areas on the roof. But, finding the openings to your attic can be difficult for the untrained eye. However, raccoons will enter through soffits, eaves, chimney flues, dormers, roofs, and gable vents. And, they like to nest down in wall cavities behind drywall. Moreover, this area secludes them and keeps them warm. Sometimes they even go into the living space of the house in search of food. Sometimes, a litter of raccoons is born and raised in your house. In addition, they will likely return year after year to raise their young.
Raccoons chew and scratch their way in from an attic or through wall plaster. Also, they often use cat or dog doors to raid pet food. Therefore, we deploy every known method and some of our secret tactics to remove these rascals from home. Moreover, if we find a defensive raccoon we use a cable restraint pole. In brief, this pole snares the raccoon. Finally, we transport it to a cage for removal.
Please note, our specialty is animal damage repair to protect your home from raccoons. What’s more, Brookville Raccoon Removal Services offers full attic restoration services. Also, we remove all fecal matter and install new ductwork and insulation.

Trapping A Raccoon Takes Work
Setting raccoon traps is the most effective way to remove the raccoons. But, rarely does Brookville Raccoon Removal Service set traps inside the attics as it is less effective. Why? Because, if we catch a raccoon in a cage trap, we have to transport it through your home. And, raccoons will urinate when trapped in a cage. Also, parasites and/or insects such as fleas could fall off the raccoon. In any case, that’s why you don’t want us bringing raccoons through your home!
Therefore, it’s more effective to catch raccoons coming out of the house. So, Brookville Raccoon Removal Service tries to catch raccoons at their entry point or when crossing their travel routes on and off the roof. Once caught, we remove all raccoons from your house. But, it’s critical that we seal the entry and exit openings. Absolutely, we are experts at raccoon exclusion and repairs. Hence, we guarantee to keep them out for good or we come back at no cost to you!
Raccoons Love To Climb Down The Flue Of Your Chimney
Also, raccoons love to climb down the flue of your chimney or fireplace and live inside your hearth box. And, female coons often have their litter of kits right on top of the flue damper. The young raccoons make a chattering noise the homeowner hears. Also, the newborn raccoon kits urinate and the liquid matter seeps into the fireplace. Often, many people call and ask “Can I start a fire to get them out?” Absolutely, the answer is NO! Unquestionably, this is inhumane to the raccoons and puts all occupants of the home at risk. Also, smoke inhalation and heat drive the raccoon sow into the home instead of out the chimney flue.

Raccoons Caught On A Roof In Xenia, Ohio
Raccoons are the primary host of Baylisascaris procyonis. In fact, Baylisascaris is a roundworm that can be harmful to people. Furthermore, infected raccoons pass roundworm eggs in their feces. Moreover, people become infected by ingesting these eggs. Hence, homes inhabited by raccoons can contain this risk. In addition, young children or developmentally disabled persons are at the highest risk. Obviously, they may be more likely to put contaminated fingers, soil, or objects into their mouths.
