Identifying if You Have a Raccoon Problem:
Raccoon's are probably the most recognized animal in the area. Black and brown, black around their eyes, and a ringed tail distinguish them from all other wildlife. Raccoon's are great climbers and are found in dumpsters, sheds, garages, factories, chimneys and house attics. They are primarily scavengers in the cities looking through dumpsters and garbage cans for food. They will also eat fish and other small wildlife. Raccoon's look for areas in your attic or chimney to build their dens, often times to have their young. You can identify entry points to the attic or chimney by large opening in the roof line, open canned vents, hanging soffits, or no chimney cap.
Raccoons in Chimneys and FireplacesHow to Identify Raccoon's
Raccoon's nocturnal animals and mostly active during the night. They will come out around dusk or right at dark to forage through dumpsters and garbage cans looking for food. During colder climates in Idaho the raccoons will stay close to their den. However raccoons do not hibernate and will come out during warmer winter nights. Raccoon often bread during January and February in preparation to have their young around the end of March or early April.

Raccoon Damage: Damage Control and Prevention
Just like any wildlife in you home or attic they will cause damage. Whether that is chewing on wires, ripping up insulation, or feces and urine through out the attic this can all be prevented and repaired.

If you are unfortunate to have raccoons enter your home and damages occur, Affordable Home Services of Idaho LLC. can decontaminate your attic by removing the droppings and damaged insulation.
Nuisance Problems: Raccoon's are loud walking around in attics. They destroy insulation and defecate all over the attic.
