When you think of critters invading your home, your mind may go straight to rats, mice, and squirrels. However, there is another critter that frequently makes its way into Gainesville home: the raccoon. Because of their size, raccoons can cause greater damages to your home than rodents could in a shorter amount of time.
Find them Fast
If you know what some of the tell-tale signs of raccoons are, you can find them more quickly and prevent the spread of diseases and damages to your home or business. Most of the raccoon activity you will notice will be at night, since they are nocturnal. Noises like scratching purring, thudding, and whining are typical signs of these masked-critters’ activities. Other signs you notice may include:
- Trash strewn around your property
- Strange behavior exhibited by your pets when indoors
- Interior damage like gnawed wooden structures, ripped insulation, and frayed wiring
- A rancid smell that won’t go away as raccoon waste soaks into your walls
- Wall and ceiling stains resulting from waste soaking in
