Raccoons are among the peskiest wildlife for our Dekalb County residents. In most cases, raccoons enter through a space in the home’s roof. If a home has a soft spot around the edge of the roof, a raccoon can scratch a hole into the roof and gain entry to a ceiling or an attic. In many cases, raccoons also enter a home through the chimney.
Once inside your Dekalb County home, raccoons can do costly damage. They will nest in dark areas, such as attics or walls. They can damage insulation within a home’s walls, which can create higher energy bills for Dekalb County homeowners. Raccoons will also leave scat around their nesting areas, which is a pain to clean up.
If you have a raccoon problem, don’t attempt to handle it yourself. Call Arete Pest Control to remove wildlife and seal off your home. Our wildlife removal techs are trained to handle pesky raccoons and other wildlife pests in Dekalb County.
