Most homeowners struggle to determine whether they are dealing with a raccoon or an opossum in their house. While the droppings left behind will look very similar, that is generally where the similarities end. Some of the warning signs you’re dealing with a raccoon include:
Raccoons may find an easy point of access into your home through ventilation systems or chimneys. If this is the case, you may not see how they’re getting inside, but if they do have to make their own entrance, you’ll notice. In most cases, they make large holes in the eaves of the house. Additionally, you may notice your garbage is knocked over or torn into. If you have dogs or cats, they may start being more active at night time as they hear the sounds of the raccoon.
While having a raccoon in your home can be unsettling, the Critter Stop team has you covered. Our four step process makes sure entrances are sealed, raccoons are taken from your home, the entire house is sanitized, and that deterrents are put in place to prevent raccoons from coming back. When you’re ready to get started, reach out to the Critter Stop team to schedule an inspection and price quote from our Dallas-Fort Worth residential wildlife removal experts.

Critter Stop was a huge part in helping us purchase our new home despite the discovery of rats in the attic during inspection. Jon was extremely patient and worked closely with our (and the sellers) realtor to ensure the problem was fixed prior to us moving in!
