Are you being woken up at night by scratching and shuffling in the attic? We wish we could tell you it’s a ghost, but it’s probably much worse—raccoons making home with your attic insulation. Contact Mid-Atlantic Wildlife control if you think you might have a raccoon problem in your Gaithersburg home. The sooner we can address it, the less damage raccoons will have time to cause.
Don’t Delay Raccoon Removal in Gaithersburg
There are many reasons why you don’t want raccoons living in your home. First of all, raccoons often make holes in your roof to get inside your home. Second of all, they are some of the largest animals that invade homes, so they can easily flatten your attic insulation, wasting hundreds of dollars. And whatever they don’t flatten by walking, they may shred for their nest or turn into a litter box. This brings us to the next point—you don’t want raccoon urine and feces anywhere in your home, especially in the attic. If raccoons are there long enough, their urine may soak through not only the insulation, but your bedroom ceiling as well, leaving an unsightly stain and an awful smell.
Here is an example of the roof damage raccoons may cause in order to enter your attic. And it’s not always evident unless you start looking for it:
