Raccoons  In Attic & Chimneys Washington DC Metro Area

Raccoons enter your attic via, attic fans, attic vents, rotten roof edges and holes in the soffet and facia (Roof Overhang). A raccoon on average needs 25 square inches to penetrate your attic. This is a dimension of 5 inches x 5 inches. If you suspect raccoons in the attic, listen to the way it walks. Most raccoons lumber across the attic, Squirrels run fast, and mice basically stay in the same area and make scratching noises. THE STATE usually mandates that these animals Be humanely euthanized, this is why habitat modification is most important. Raccoons usually give birth April 1 of each year, and in august for a late litter. Depending how north or south you live depends on the exact timing of the birthing season.

Remember Wildlife Resources Commission laws require killing a Raccoon if you trap and posses him.
