Stains on Walls and Ceilings
When raccoons are nesting inside a home, they use it as a toilet, dinner table, bedroom, and playground. Accumulated animal waste will leak into the floorboards, and drywall, resulting in yellow-ish brown stains to show through in the walls and ceilings of the home. This same type of accumulation leads us to the next indication of raccoon infestations.
The result of rotten, decaying food scraps and raccoon droppings will not only stain, they will also produce a foul odor that is pungent enough to detect in the living quarters of a home. Often times, this is a sign of a long-term infestation.
