Do I Have Raccoons Living Under My Home?
Raccoons often look for shelter any place they can find it. They typically feast on garbage and they scaveng around neighborhoods looking for food. Raccoons usually live in wooded or unpopulated areas near water, but travel close to homes to locate better sources of food. Raccoons are nocturnal, so they are most active during the nighttime hours. During the night, they seek refuge in garages, attics, and under decks and porches. You may have raccoons if you notice your garbage is knocked over or hear the animals moving around. Raccoons can be dangerous, especially if they are protecting their young.

The Dangers of Raccoons
Raccoons generally tend to stay away from humans. However, they can become angry when they are provoked. Raccoons can attack or bite small pets and may even be a danger to children and adults. They can also become infected with rabies and roundworms, making them even more hazardous. They have strong jaws and teeth so that they can chew through plastic garbage receptacles and wood on porches and homes.
