Damage Caused by Raccoons
Raccoons are wild animals – they don’t make the best house guests. They are simply very sloppy and destructive by nature. Some people have tried to keep them as pets – aside from the danger of being bitten or scratched, the main problem is that they destroy everything in the house. A raccoon living in an attic of a house will cause some major damage. I’ve been in hundreds of attics thus far with raccoons, and I’ve seen all matter of destruction.
Raccoons will rip apart ducts, sometimes all of them. I’m not sure why, maybe just for fun, maybe in search of bedding material, maybe because they’re curious about the air flow. They will tear up insulation on pipes, rip the insulating paper off the wall, chew on wires, yes, chew on wires – I’ve seen raccoons do it many times – and they’ll trample down insulation or stuff it in areas it doesn’t necessarily belong. Plus, they poop everywhere, which is a biohazard. Because of these problems, I recommend raccoon removal as soon as you realize you have a raccoon problem.
