Signs of a Raccoon Problem
Raccoons can be cute, but they can be destructive little critters when hungry. They’ll do anything to get to their grub, and this often involves destroying parts of your property. Here are a few warning signs of a raccoon infestation.
Disturbed trash cans
If you find your trash can or recycling bin knocked to the ground and all of its contents scattered around your yard come garbage day, this is a sign that nuisance raccoons have been rummaging outside your property.
Raccoons are omnivores, so they will most certainly make their way to your garden and snack on any fruits or vegetables you may be growing. They’ll also leave a trail of small footprints and droppings while they’re at it. If you find missing, bitten, or dead crops around your property, raccoons have likely been infesting it.
Unexpected rips and tears in welcome mats, window screens, siding, and roofing are another heavy indicator that ravenous raccoons are itching to get inside your home or building to access your food and shelter.

Raccoons are known carriers of rabies as well as other diseases and parasites. Additionally, they can become violent and attack when feeling threatened, which is why any attempt at raccoon removal should be left to the professionals.
