RACCOONS IN ATTIC
Raccoons may be adorable creatures from a distance, they are not animals you want inside your home or attic. They can be very aggressive and mischievous and they are deceptively strong. Most of their activity is done at night as they are nocturnal, which makes it hard for humans to see them causing problems. However, there are a few tell tale signs of raccoon activity in your attic. If you are seeing stains on your drywall or ceilings, damage on the exterior of your home or hearing what sounds like someone walking on your roof you may have raccoons in your attic. Like most living creatures, they are looking for food, shelter and safety. Your home offers all of those things. Neighborhoods in Springfield or Hampden and Hampshire Counties are very attractive to raccoons because there are plenty of trash cans filled with leftovers, pet food left outside or in the garage and nice dry attics to live in. Do not attempt to confront one yourself. Call us to handle the situation. These animals will respond very aggressively and can be dangerous.
