Raccoon Damage & Hazards

Raccoons are capable of causing damage to your Dallas area garden, your yard, & your home. Some of the most commonly reported raccoon problems in the Dallas area include:

  • Raccoon Nesting & Food-Seeking Habits — Did you know raccoons are infamous for ripping insulation for nesting? They also gather materials such as grass, hay, and even fabric to help supplement their cozy nest. They then construct their nest in low-traffic isolated areas like your chimney or attic. 
  • Feces/Urine Damage — Raccoons can cause tangible damage to your floors & walls because of a gathering of their feces & urine. These clever creatures are known for living in one area of your home and using another as a "latrine"—essentially where they leave their waste. Common places for raccoon latrines include decks, roofs, attics, woodpiles, logs & big rocks.
  • Diseases from Raccoons — Rampant in raccoon latrines as it's found in raccoon feces, raccoon roundworm can cause nausea, an enlarged liver, and even coma if you come into contact with it. Of course, the disease that comes to mind when many think of raccoons is rabies, but canine distemper and infectious canine hepatitis are also carried by raccoons.

Raccoon Facts

  • The human-like hands of the raccoon allow them to open doors and cabinets, and also provide stability. The dexterity in their fingers even lets them untie knots!
  • An average raccoon is 70 cm (27.5 in) from nose to tail, and a raccoon can weigh up to 10 kg (over 22 lbs).
  • Raccoons have 40 teeth.
  • Raccoons have a habit of using water to “wash” their food before they eat it. Scientists had theorized that raccoons lacked saliva glands and needed to add moisture before eating, but that has since been disproven. Another better-accepted theory is that raccoons use moisture to stimulate the nerves in their paw to help them better understand what it is they’re eating.

Project: Great customer service!
Great customer service! I hired them to cover up two holes in my roof since a squirrel has been sneaking its way into our attic for a few months and we couldn't capture it. They arrived within the time window that they said they would be coming and were kind enough to help me fix a roof tile that had cracked. It didn't take them long to finish the job. After they left, I noticed that that roof tile was not sticking and called them. They drove back immediately and helped me replace the tile with a spare I had in the garage. I would definitely recommend them to my friends and family!
