Raccoon removal from your attic, roof or yard is especially important in urban areas and in rural areas where they will prey on small domestic animals and on crops. Raccoons are, in most cases, nocturnal. They leave large trails within the attic insulation, leave larger droppings, somewhat similar to a dog's and in most cases leave some form of damage to their entry point that can be easily viewed from the outside. They often have 3-5 babies in the attic area which need to be manually extracted and transported to a licensed Wildlife Rehabilitator.
A major cause of home and attic damage, raccoons in Central Florida are always on the lookout for a great place to live and your attic is just right. Attics provide a dry, warm, safe shelter for raccoons to raise their young. Raccoons enter your home by prying open areas in soffits and vents and, once inside, the damage begins. Destruction of duct work, insulation, wiring, and wood often takes place, as well as damage to personal belongings stored in the attic. Your attic has also become an indoor toilet for your new tenants who leave behind urine and droppings.
Raccoon removal is important because they can cause quite a bit of damage when they live in an attic. Not only do they urinate and defecate in the attic, but they can bring in a host of parasites (fleas, ticks, mites, and lice) and diseases (raccoon roundworm, leptospirosis, etc). They often tear apart ductwork, rip insulation off of pipes, gnaw on wires, and trample down the insulation, lowering its R-value effectiveness.
