Raccoons in attics
Portage, Indiana Animal Control and Removal. Cooler evenings really get the raccoons moving. If you're hearing noises in your attic like this Portage Indiana customer was, it could be a raccoon. As temperatures begin to cool, the raccoons begin to look for alternative den locations. Often times, raccoons will find weak areas of your roof, like where your roof edge may be a little deteriorated from gutters backing up. Make sure and check and clean your gutters twice a year to be sure they are working good. These raccoons are looking for winter den locations and will find those weakened spots and rip them open in just a few minutes. American Animal Control's service technicians can do a preventative animal entry inspections to locate all possible entrance points, as well as provide gutter cleaning for those customers who may need help or are not able to keep their gutters clean by themselves. Give us a call if you would like an inspection.
