Who Are The Culprits?
RaccoonsRarely seen during the daylight, these nocturnal creatures are not rodents. Raccoons are carnivorous mammals, about 2-3 feet long, with stocky bodies. When raccoons are in search of food, they will use their hands to dig in trash cans.
Do All Raccoons Have Rabies?No, not all raccoons have rabies. However, raccoons are the largest carrier of rabies in Georgia, right next to skunks, bats, foxes, and coyotes.
What are Signs of Raccoon Infestation?Homeowners can identify signs of raccoons by noticing:
- A disordered trash can
- A presence of droppings or urine stains
- Noises in your walls, attic or crawl spaces, especially during the nighttime (Raccoons are nocturnal so they are most active at night!)
