I booked a free home inspection, and the inspector Victor Odili informed me that he highly suspected that I had racoons in my attic. He pointed to divots in the insulation and far-off barely perceptible “tracking” as what informed his diagnosis, then proceeded to recommend a $1500 service to prevent critters access to my attic and to remove the current infestation. When I inspected the attic myself, I did not find a single sign of animal infestation. Not one track, not one bit of scat. Rather than drop such a large sum of money on a service that I suspected I did not need, I told the rep that I would call him back after getting a second opinion. I contacted a family owned and operated pest control service to check my attic, and they saw absolutely no sign of animals, same as I had. Not only was it fake, the service itself would have only cost $650 from this other provider instead of $1500.
