Female raccoons will have their babies in attics, chimneys, garages and under decks.  Raccoons are great climbers and will often make their way to your roof top and look for areas that they can create space to get into the attic.  One of the most popular areas for raccoons to break into your home is the attic vent fan.   Vent fans typically have a very flimsy piece of wire around them and raccoons can bend the wire and gain access into your attic in under 2 minutes.  Other popular entry spots include the gable vent, roof vents, soffit, fascia, straight through the shingles, ridge venting, etc.  The fecal matter left from the raccoons alone is reason enough to hire companies like Advanced Wildlife Control out.  The droppings can be very hazardous to your health if ingested or breathed in.  AWC also provides insulation removal services for attics that have been contaminated by raccoons.  “We clean out attic spaces, remove the insulation and droppings, sanitize the area, and install new insulation.  Those interested in information on our attic clean out services can find that at www.advancedwildlifeandpestcontrol.com website.
