About: Some homeowner become worried when they hear scratching in a attic when a raccoon has entered but it is seldom a raccoon wants to get into the living quarters. When a raccoon does get into a living area of a home it is usually one of two common things. One, the homeowner has sealed the entry way the raccoon has used to get in and two urine soaked drywall becomes soft enough for it to fall through the ceiling. Open dampers in a fireplace is another way for raccoons to enter but its not all that common. Attic insulation worries: Insulation becomes more soiled from raccoon waste during the winter than it does in spring and summer months. Raccoon in the winter when weather is bad will make a toilet inside the attic usually opposite of where they are denning. In the warmer months when are out more there is less to worry about in the attic. Except when a female gives birth, insulation will be removed in a certain area to put the new kits on the drywall. When attics get to warm a raccoon will drag insulation into the soffits to rest on. The raccoon removing the insulation to sleep on the drywall to share heating or cooling is where the scratching in the attic comes from. This area of the attic should be reinsulated.
