Bandits? Dangerous to you and your pets? You bet. And the damage to your home can be expensive once racoons take up residence in your attic, under your deck, or in your crawlspace. Plus their droppings carry the Raccoon Ringworm. Look for their droppings at the base of large trees and along your fence line.
