As cities and suburban areas continue to expand, we continue to encroach on the wildlife’s territory. That’s why home infestations of critters like raccoons are becoming more and more common. Some homeowners see raccoons as cute and cuddly creatures who wouldn’t be able to do too much damage to your property. However, if they gain access to your home, the damages they can do can cost you hundreds of dollars to repair.
To help prevent severe damages to your home or the spread of disease to your family, know the signs of a raccoon infestation. The sooner you detect them, the easier it will be to remove them from your home, and the less time they will have to do damages. The following are signs that raccoons may be in your home:
- Loose trash around your property
- Interior damage, especially to your walls or attic
- Pets acting strangely when inside of the home
- A strong stench of urine and feces will engulf your home
- Plants uprooted in your garden

Even if you only have a few raccoons around your property or in your home, it is never a good idea to try and handle them on your own.
