They are easily identifiable by the dark markings around their eyes which resembles a mask, as well as the dark rings around their tails.
Signs of Raccoon Activity
Though they don’t look dangerous and they rarely go out of their way to attack humans, they can do considerable property damage and create an overwhelming mess. Aside from overturning garbage cans in search of food, raccoons often seek shelter inside of homes and garages as well. Their acute senses and ability to use their front paws like hands allow them to open doors and containers easily.
Keep an eye out for the following signs of raccoon activity around your home, and call Critter Control® of Dallas right away if you notice any of these on your property:
- Damage to attic access points such as roof soffits or vents
- Unusual behavior from your pets as they can sense animal intruders
- Stains on the walls or ceiling along with foul odors caused by raccoon waste
- Noises coming from your attic, especially at night, such as thumps, scratches, or purring
To help deter curious raccoons, secure trash can lids or keep them inside your garage. Be sure to bring your pets’ food and water bowls inside as well, and keep tree branches trimmed away from your house to keep raccoons from accessing your roof.
