Raccoons in the Attic Bowling Green, KY
When you hear a loud thumping noise in the attic accompanied by some low growls or whining sounds, you can almost be certain they are being caused by an intruding raccoon. Raccoons are probably the largest mammal, other than yourself, that you’ll find in the attic. Raccoons will generally find ways to get into your attic around the soffits, eaves, fascia boards, gable vents and large mushroom roof vents that are not
fortified against raccoon entry.
Raccoons seek shelter from the elements just like anything else. They need a place to construct dens for raising their young and for hiding during daylight hours. Raccoons are nocturnal and spend most of the daylight hours inside their dens sleeping and tending to their young. In Kentucky raccoons will start giving birth as early as late March and we have even seen newborn kits as late as August. Raccoon kits will whine and chatter when they are hungry or if mom has left them alone for too long. If you are
hearing whining or chattering in your attic, then you probably have a mother raccoon and her kits living comfortably in your attic.
Raccoons are very adaptable and can live most anywhere there is shelter and food. They will usually stay within several city blocks of their dens but may travel several miles a night in search of food or a possible mate. Just because you don’t see raccoons during daylight hours it doesn’t mean you won’t get a raccoon in your attic. There is even an abundant raccoon population well within the city limits of Bowling Green, KY. Therefore, if there is food available in your neighborhood in the form of garbage, pet food, bird seed, or other sources; you will most likely have raccoons roaming the streets and lawns of your Bowling Green neighborhood each and every night.
