Raccoon Droppings in the Attic of a House in Alpharetta, Georgia

The one nice thing about raccoons is that they tend to set aside a particular place to poop and pee. If you catch the problem soon enough, sometimes this allows for localized insulation replacement rather than re-insulating the entire attic.

More often, however, all the insulation will have to be replaced. Raccoons don't just contaminate the insulation. They also flatten it out. That means that even the "clean" insulation loses its insulating efficiency.
