Ann Arbor Raccoon Removal Services
Raccoons are nocturnal, so when they get into your home the first irritation you will notice is their late night noises. Not only are these noises annoying and make it difficult for you to sleep, they can also cause extreme unrest and anxiety for small children and family pets. While raccoons may not seem like that big of a problem initially, they are actually highly destructive and can cause substantially more damage than a small hole in your roof or fence and some nighttime noise.
If raccoons do find a way inside your home, they will tear up insulation in your attic, rip apart ductwork, destroy the insulation around pipes, chew and destroy wires and cables creating fire hazards, and generally be a messy and smelly nuisance. If you suspect you may have raccoons you should look for a few telltale signs to ensure that you catch them before they destroy too much.
