Description

Raccoons are considerable pests because of their foraging and nesting habits. They are associated with trash consumption, and are notorious for their curious and shrewd natures.

Appearance

Raccoons range in size, from 7-30 pounds in weight and can reach about 3 feet long! They have coloring on their face that make them easily identifiable. Black encircles their eyes and extends across their cheeks, similar in appearance to classic burglar masks. The rest of their fur is gray with hints of brown, and they have unique tails that display alternative rings of white and black. Some compare raccoons to canines and bears, most likely due to their similar snouts, omnivorous teeth, and body proportions.

Habitat

Raccoons preferred habitat includes marshes, forest, prairies, and your home! Raccoons will nest within attics, chimneys, and crawl spaces.

Raccoon Problems

Raccoon Entry

Thanks to the way their hands are structured raccoons are able to grasp objects, allowing them to open doors. Females and males will enter homes for different reasons. Females find their way into homes to find a safe place to raise babies, often nesting in attics, chimneys, and crawl spaces. Male raccoons will enter homes in search of food sources.

Raccoon Damage

Raccoons create considerable damage inside and outside. Raccoons inside the home can create damages that can lead to extreme problems. Raccoon damage may include contamination of urine and raccoon droppings, damaged insulation, and damaged air ducts. Outside, while foraging for food, raccoons tear apart yards and gardens. Due to their strength, raccoons damage homes upon entry alone.
