Raccoons often seek to be close to humans because being close to humans means an abundant food supply. Raccoons also love breaking into attics because they are quiet and suit the animal's nocturnal nature. A raccoon in an attic can sleep uninterrupted and risk-free for 15-20 hours a day. Once in the house, the raccoon can cause serious damage. Contact us at 416-268-3408 to learn about your raccoon removal options.
Raccoons are excellent climbers - reaching the roof of an average residential home in Ontario takes only a few seconds. If left undisturbed in an attic for a long time, raccoons will cause significant building damage and create serious health and safety risk. We have published several posts in our blog about the dangers of raccoon feces. What also poses a significant risk to a home's occupants is the fact that raccoons usually urinate in the same area of the attic, which can eventually soften the drywall. Softened drywall can collapse together with the adult raccoons on it creating a scene from a horror movie. Over the years, we have seen numerous cases of significant portions of ceilings collapsing under the raccoon's weight. To prevent such costly and stressful encounter, you are advised to take action and not allow raccoons to continue living in your attic.
Will raccoons leave my home on their own?
A well-intentioned argument could suggest that raccoons will leave your home once the winter is over. That's absolutely not the case. Raccoons will not leave your home when the winter is over. Raccoons in urban and suburban areas are not accustomed to living in trees and they have nowehere else to go. Raccoons will continue to live in your attic throughout the year. There is a good chance that they will continue breeding in your attic and with every breeding season, there will be more animals calling the attic home.
If a raccoon has found a home under your roof, you should contact a professional wildlife removal company such as TSR and they will provide you with advice and assistance.
It should not be forgotten that raccoons are wild animals and can quickly cause great damage in the house and around the yard or infect residents and pets with numerous diseases. Once the critters have found a shelter in the attic, they can quickly become a real nuisance. The longer they stay in the attic, the harder it will be to evict them permanently. There will also be other unpleasant consequences such as damaged insulation, walls, ceilings, excessive smell caused by the animal's urine and excrement.
