Raccoons in the Attic
Raccoons in the attic is a common problem in Greater Nashville, as a attic is a perfect quiet, undisturbed location for a mother to raise a litter. A attic is sheltered from the outside environments, and will be much warmer than being outside, which is perfect for them. Attic infestation is a very common problem. Raccoons are very prevalent around Greater Nashville, and these masked-bandits are well known for utilizing trees that overlap a roofline of a home to access a attic. They use their hands just like we would, so opening up a small gap on a home, is not hard.
Raccoons are well at home in a attic, as it provides a perfect environment for shelter against the elements. This also makes a great space to have young, as they will use insulation as nesting materials, so even on the coldest days, they stay warm. Once they are in a attic, they do not go away on their own. This is when damage can occur, especially if there is more than one raccoon. Damage to insulation, heating and air duct lines, and air quality can quickly cause hazardous conditions in your living space of your home.

When Raccoons Have Young?

They are found throughout the Tennessee, and are even problems nationally and internationally. Raccoons are omnivorous, eating both plant and animal foods. Mating begins December – June, dependent on geographical area, with 3-5 young being born starting in March. They are nocturnal, but in a residential setting can make a daytime appearance if food is readily available. Family groups will usually remain together for the first year, and then the young will seperate.
