5​ ​Home​ ​Entry​ ​Waypoints​ ​Critters​ ​Sneak​ ​Into Raccoons,​ ​similar​ ​to​ ​most​ ​other​ ​wild​ ​animals,​ ​are​ ​opportunists.​ ​They’re​ ​capable​ ​of taking​ ​advantage​ ​of​ ​even​ ​the​ ​smallest​ ​hole​ ​or​ ​structural​ ​weakness​ ​to​ ​chew,​ ​scratch,​ ​and squeeze​ ​their​ ​way​ ​into​ ​your​ ​home.​ ​Though​ ​their​ ​cute​ ​appearance​ ​suggests​ ​otherwise, raccoons​ ​are​ ​not​ ​meant​ ​to​ ​live​ ​happily​ ​ever​ ​after​ ​amongst​ ​homeowners.​ ​So,​ ​the​ ​most important​ ​step​ ​in​ ​keeping​ ​your​ ​home​ ​raccoon-free​ ​is​ ​securing​ ​weak​ ​areas​ ​against​ ​future intrusions.​ ​The​ ​best​ ​place​ ​to​ ​start​ ​is​ ​by​ ​performing​ ​a​ ​complete​ ​inspection​ ​of​ ​your​ ​home’s exterior,​ ​including​ ​the​ ​roof.​ ​Every​ ​house​ ​is​ ​unique,​ ​which​ ​is​ ​one​ ​of​ ​the​ ​many​ ​reasons why​ ​it​ ​is​ ​important​ ​to​ ​have​ ​your​ ​home​ ​inspected​ ​by​ ​an​ ​experienced​ ​wildlife​ ​professional. A​ ​trained​ ​wildlife​ ​specialist​ ​will​ ​be​ ​able​ ​to​ ​recognize​ ​potential​ ​points​ ​of​ ​entry​ ​as​ ​well​ ​how to​ ​secure​ ​them​ ​to​ ​protect​ ​your​ ​home.​ ​In​ ​our​ ​experience,​ ​we​ ​have​ ​seen​ ​and​ ​repaired every​ ​type​ ​of​ ​raccoon​ ​entry​ ​hole​ ​imaginable. This​ ​post​ ​will​ ​cover​ ​several​ ​of​ ​the​ ​most​ ​common​ ​ways​ ​critters​ ​can​ ​get​ ​into​ ​your​ ​home.

Roof​ ​Soffit​ ​Intersections

Raccoons​ ​are​ ​often​ ​able​ ​to​ ​enter​ ​your​ ​house​ ​through​ ​roof-soffit​ ​intersections​ ​(RSI).​ ​A roof-soffit​ ​intersection​ ​refers​ ​to​ ​any​ ​area​ ​on​ ​your​ ​roof​ ​where​ ​the​ ​soffit​ ​rests​ ​just​ ​above​ ​a

section​ ​of​ ​the​ ​roof.​ ​Typically,​ ​these​ ​sections​ ​are​ ​located​ ​where​ ​an​ ​upper​ ​and​ ​lower​ ​roof meet​ ​and​ ​make​ ​for​ ​an​ ​ideal​ ​entry​ ​point​ ​(for​ ​animals​ ​besides​ ​raccoons​ ​too).​ ​Raccoons​ ​use the​ ​roof​ ​for​ ​leverage​ ​and​ ​open​ ​flimsy​ ​soffits​ ​made​ ​from​ ​thin​ ​aluminum​ ​or​ ​plastic.​ ​Once the​ ​soffit​ ​is​ ​opened,​ ​they​ ​can​ ​easily​ ​gain​ ​access​ ​to​ ​the​ ​entire​ ​attic.

Edge​ ​Of​ ​The​ ​Roof

The​ ​edge​ ​of​ ​your​ ​roof​ ​is​ ​a​ ​particularly​ ​vulnerable​ ​area​ ​for​ ​raccoon​ ​intrusion.​ ​Specifically, you​ ​should​ ​keep​ ​an​ ​eye​ ​on​ ​where​ ​the​ ​eaves​ ​trough​ ​meets​ ​the​ ​house.​ ​The​ ​eaves​ ​trough​ ​is designed​ ​so​ ​that​ ​all​ ​rain​ ​and​ ​melted​ ​snow​ ​on​ ​the​ ​roof​ ​must​ ​pass​ ​through.​ ​High​ ​amounts of​ ​moisture,​ ​as​ ​well​ ​as​ ​continuous​ ​freezing​ ​and​ ​thawing​ ​deteriorate​ ​this​ ​area​ ​of​ ​the​ ​roof faster​ ​than​ ​any​ ​other​ ​section.​ ​Opportunistic​ ​raccoons​ ​easily​ ​chew​ ​and​ ​tear​ ​away​ ​any rotted​ ​wood​ ​to​ ​gain​ ​access​ ​to​ ​the​ ​attic. Roof​ ​Vents Raccoons​ ​have​ ​been​ ​known​ ​to​ ​take​ ​advantage​ ​of​ ​roof​ ​vents​ ​to​ ​enter​ ​homes.​ ​Roof​ ​vents are​ ​designed​ ​to​ ​allow​ ​air​ ​circulation​ ​within​ ​your​ ​attic;​ ​however,​ ​raccoons​ ​have​ ​the​ ​ability to​ ​fee​ ​the​ ​air​ ​escaping​ ​from​ ​the​ ​attic.​ ​Once​ ​they​ ​feel​ ​this​ ​air,​ ​they​ ​become​ ​intrigued​ ​and attempt​ ​to​ ​destroy​ ​the​ ​vent​ ​cover​ ​so​ ​they​ ​can​ ​access​ ​the​ ​warmth​ ​inside.​ ​Again,​ ​plastic​ ​or aluminum​ ​vent​ ​covers​ ​are​ ​no​ ​matches​ ​for​ ​powerful​ ​raccoons.

Chimneys Mother​ ​raccoons​ ​view​ ​the​ ​bottom​ ​of​ ​your​ ​chimney​ ​as​ ​an​ ​ideal​ ​place​ ​to​ ​nurse​ ​babies, which​ ​makes​ ​sense.​ ​Chimneys​ ​mimic​ ​the​ ​feeling​ ​of​ ​a​ ​hollowed​ ​out​ ​tree​ ​cavity,​ ​allowing

mature​ ​raccoons​ ​to​ ​simply​ ​shimmy​ ​up​ ​and​ ​down​ ​in​ ​search​ ​of​ ​shelter​ ​and​ ​protection during​ ​the​ ​colder​ ​months.​ ​Once​ ​they’re​ ​inside,​ ​raccoons​ ​will​ ​make​ ​their​ ​home​ ​on​ ​top your​ ​fireplace’s​ ​damper.​ ​Fortunately,​ ​you​ ​can​ ​purchase​ ​HYC​ ​Brand​ ​chimney​ ​caps​ ​from Wildlife​ ​Control​ ​Services​ ​to​ ​prevent​ ​raccoons​ ​from​ ​getting​ ​inside.

Plumbing​ ​Mats

On​ ​most​ ​homes,​ ​there​ ​are​ ​cylindrical​ ​vents​ ​on​ ​the​ ​roof,​ ​which​ ​connect​ ​to​ ​your​ ​plumbing system.​ ​These​ ​cylindrical​ ​vents​ ​act​ ​as​ ​an​ ​exhaust​ ​for​ ​sewer​ ​gases​ ​(which​ ​is​ ​why​ ​your house​ ​does​ ​not​ ​smell​ ​after​ ​consistent​ ​bathroom​ ​usage). When​ ​a​ ​plumbing​ ​vent​ ​is​ ​initially​ ​installed,​ ​a​ ​contractor​ ​will​ ​cut​ ​through​ ​the​ ​roof​ ​to extend​ ​the​ ​pipe​ ​outside.​ ​To​ ​make​ ​it​ ​easier​ ​to​ ​run​ ​the​ ​plumbing,​ ​the​ ​hole​ ​in​ ​the​ ​roof​ ​is usually​ ​cut​ ​much​ ​larger​ ​than​ ​the​ ​pipe.​ ​Following​ ​this,​ ​the​ ​open​ ​space​ ​is​ ​then​ ​covered with​ ​a​ ​rubber​ ​matting.​ ​Unfortunately,​ ​raccoons​ ​can​ ​pull​ ​and​ ​tear​ ​at​ ​this​ ​mat​ ​to​ ​squeeze themselves​ ​into​ ​the​ ​attic​ ​through​ ​the​ ​hole​ ​underneath.

Wildlife​ ​Control​ ​Services We​ ​always​ ​strive​ ​to​ ​provide​ ​the​ ​customer​ ​and​ ​the​ ​wildlife​ ​with​ ​the​ ​safest​ ​and​ ​most effective​ ​management​ ​techniques​ ​at​ ​our​ ​disposal.​ ​We​ ​use​ ​ecologically​ ​sound​ ​and integrated​ ​control​ ​techniques​ ​in​ ​resolving​ ​human​ ​and​ ​animal​ ​conflicts.
