Here Are Some Ways Raccoons Get Into Your Home
This raccoon was climing the downspout, and it removed the soffit vent. It can squeeze through this hole.
These are three very classic examples of raccoon entry points into a home or attic. Raccoons are great climbers, and they are very strong.
They have no difficulty climbing up onto your roof. They can use downspouts such as in the first photo, or simply scale walls. A tree next
to the house makes it all the easier. Once on the roof, they can push open eaves, such as in the third photo, or simply tear their way through
the roof, as in the second photo. It's very important to fix these holes once the raccoons are trapped and removed. Failure to do so may simply
result in a new wild animal inside your home soon! Click to go back to the Orlando raccoon removal page.
