Is There A Raccoon in My Home?
Raccoons are fairly easy to identify, due to their unique coloring and “mask” markings around their face. If you can’t physically see them, however, it can be difficult to discern your wildlife visitor. We’re here to help. Read below for some telltale ways to determine if you have raccoons or other wildlife intruders.
- Raccoons are nocturnal, so you unfortunately may hear them overhead when you’re trying to sleep
- The most likely area you will hear raccoons is your attic because it has everything they need to comfortably live: nesting materials (insulation), plenty of space to live and an area for a latrine, and easy access in and out through your roof
- As they move, raccoons make dragging, rustling, and scratching noises. You can make a reasonable guess based on the weight of the dragging and rustling that it’s a raccoon and not a smaller critter like a mouse or squirrel.
- When they make vocal noises, raccoons can often create noises that many people can’t identify, such as hissing, purring, chittering (known as trilling), chirping and other noises that belie their cute appearance. They communicate for various reasons, including when calling for their babies, and during breeding season.
