What Kind of Problems Can Raccoons Cause in Southlake, Texas?

Raccoons are scavenging pests. As they search for food around your property, they often knock over and rummage through trash bins and practically anything else if they believe there may be a meal involved. When raccoons are around, mornings often greet homeowners with strewn trash and overturned garbage receptacles.

Though not typically dangerous unless you try to handle or mistakenly trap them, raccoons can become violent. With no other option available, raccoons will attack in order to escape. If the raccoon in question has rabies, the threat of violence and injury is much greater.

Raccoons can cause a variety of other damage in and around your home that often extends beyond tipped over trashcans. Raccoons are skillful climbers but do not take care to avoid damage to your home as they scale its walls. 

When raccoons seek shelter inside your home, you can expect some of the following:

  • Destruction of insulation

  • Broken or chewed fascia

  • Damage to vents

  • Torn or loose shingles

  • Broken ducts

Your best bet when dealing with raccoons on your property or in your home is to partner with a pest professional. Secure the services of a DANCAN professional and gain peace of mind that raccoons will no longer roam your property. Our exclusion program works to keep them out, causing them to go elsewhere to find what they're seeking.
