Raccoons, also known as the “Masked Bandit” are a popular nuisance in urban areas and like to make homes in attics, chimneys, under porches and decks, and garages. They have become comfortable around humans and have adapted well to finding food in bird feeders, pet food bowls, garbage cans, and gardens.
If you have a raccoon in the attic it can be a messy situation. Once in the attic, raccoons tear through insulation, ducts and more. They will also leave behind droppings and are carriers of parasites/diseases that can be a danger to people and pets.
