How Do Raccoons Get in?
Sometimes, it’s evident how a raccoon gained access to your attic or garage. You would typically see a hole in your soffit or a gable vent that’s been ripped open. But in other cases raccoon may not leave any obvious trails. Take a look at this video from our Canadian colleagues of a sneaky raccoon that was lifting the roof vent up to get into the attic. Because the vent wasn’t entirely exposed, you can’t see the damage right away and it may be a while until you notice a roof leak.
As funny and entertaining as this video is, you shouldn’t forget that this raccoon probably started a litter box in the attic and ripped up insulation. There may be 3-5 raccoon babies in there as well. This could be YOUR attic.
