1. The Crawlspace

The crawlspace beneath your home is one of the leading areas for animals to find refuge. Oftentimes, homeowners will keep boxes and other personal items in the area, which animals can then use to build nests and create a comfortable area for themselves.

2. The Attic

For animals that like to climb, such as squirrels, opossums and roof rats, the attic is the ideal area of the home. That’s because it’s a distance away from the majority of the home activity and there is enough room to run around and move in and out of the home quickly.

3. Basement Areas

Damp basement areas can offer raccoons and other wildlife the perfect space in which to raise their babies away from outside dangers. They will often find corners of the basement to make their own as a way to avoid human interaction while protecting their young ones.

4. Chimneys

Chimneys are one of the most common areas in the home to find raccoons. That’s because the chimney is similar to a hollow tree. The raccoon can build their living space inside and easily climb in and out to hunt at night.

5. In Between Walls

When a rodent has chewed their way through the exterior of the home, they can live comfortably in the small space between the walls of the property. There, they will be protected against the weather and other threats outside while they have a comfortable place in which to store food.
