to the attic area. In such a case, a lot of noise and mess is made. If you have such
an issue, you will notice a big mess and lots of droppings. Raccoons are quite strong
and when in the attic, they will tear the insulation paper and the rip the ducts. Raccoons
also tear the insulation off any pipes. A lot of damage can be caused by raccoons and they
work hard to search for food. They also like tipping over the trash cans, raiding the
dumpsters and stealing any pet food that is left behind. Mostoften they can break in
to the porch that is screened on so as to access per food. Texas raccoons also poop in swimming
pools. They also come with lotsof diseases and parasites that may cause considerable effects
on pets and people.
