A raccoon in the attic can sound like a person is up there walking around at night. If you hear a whining sound coming from above, you might have some baby raccoons as well. Mother raccoons can be very aggressive when humans or pets get near the babies. If you live in Pinellas County, Hillsborough County or Pasco County, a call to a raccoon removal service can have the animals professionally removed.
Raccoon feces can carry histoplasmosis, like a lot of other wild animals, so most of the time an attic restoration or anti-bacterial treatment is necessary.
