Should I Worry About Raccoons in My Attic?
If you’ve seen any of the viral raccoon videos floating on the internet, you may think that these goofy, fluffy critters couldn’t possibly do any harm to anybody. But that’s until you find one in your attic and see what they’ve done. Raccoons can cause significant damage both to interior and exterior of your home.
In Maryland, raccoon is probably the largest animal that may attempt to break into your attic, and with the size comes incredible strength. If squirrels can only chew through things, raccoons actually have “hands” and fingers to rip things open. And once they gain access, they don’t stop. They will shred your rolled-in attic insulation to make a den. And they will also designate a “litter box” area in the attic—you know what that’s for!
