How to Get Rid of Raccoons in Walls
Raccoons are skilled in finding access points to homes, including cracks, crevices, and holes in building exteriors, screens, roofs, and siding. Once they gain entry to the building, they often establish dens in secluded areas like wall voids.
Dangers of Raccoons in Walls
Raccoon infestations can cause costly damage to property. This is especially true when they’ve established their presence in walls, where essential electrical wiring is located. Raccoons in walls significantly elevate the risk of electrical fire due to the creature’s curious nature.
Perhaps more importantly, raccoon infestations are hazardous to your health. Raccoons can expose residents to rabies and other diseases, including raccoon roundworm.
