No homeowner wants to deal with critters in their attic, especially ones as large as raccoons. Although any animal living in your attic or walls will certainly make noise, raccoons are much louder than the rest. If left to make themselves comfortable for too long, their large feces and urine will soak into your ceiling below the attic and the walls, leaving a stench that is tough to remove.
Signs of a Raccoon Infestation
Since raccoons are nocturnal, you’ll be hearing from them when you’ll least want to. If you hear loud thumping noises coming from your ceiling, walls, or even garage, That’s a good sign you have an infestation on your hands. Other signs may include:
- Stains on your ceilings or walls from built up waste
- Garbage strewn around your property
- Damage to the infrastructure of your home, especially your attic
- Damage to any belongings you have stored in your attic
