Getting rid of raccoons
Warning – Raccoons, while appearing cute and cuddly, are extremely dangerous wild animals. You should never try to pet, feed, or play with them. They can become aggressive with no warning, especially around their young. Most raccoon injuries sustained by people are due to them trying to interact with the wild animal. If you suspect you have a raccoon in your attic or around your property, please call Wildlife Experts to prevent an attack on you. Call Rapid Rodent Removal for a free consultation today.
Like most other wildlife that may intrude on your property, there are several health risks that go along with having raccoons in your area, including raccoon urine and feces, raccoon attacks, transmitted diseases, injury to pets and children, destruction of property, and fire hazards.
Raccoons transmit several diseases through their urine and feces, including:
- Raccoon Roundworm
If you get bit or scratched by a raccoon you should go to a doctor to get checked for rabies immediately as this virus is carried in a raccoons saliva.
Never attempt to remove raccoons from your property alone, especially if the raccoon has babies or is acting in an unusual or aggressive manner. Always call a Wildlife Expert to help determine the best plan for raccoon removal. Call Rapid Rodent Removal now for a free inspection and individualized raccoon Removal plan.
RACCOONs in your home? INFORMATION
Raccoons are mostly nocturnal animals but may sometimes be heard during the daytime. Baby raccoons are extremely vocal – if you hear growls, a sort of chattering, whistles, screams, hissing, or snarls you probably have a family of raccoons living in your attic. You may also hear a heavy thumping sound. Raccoons are bigger and heavier than rats or squirrels so they will move slower and have a heavier sound.
Raccoons are not considered hibernators, however they become significantly less active beginning around October and only reemerge in early spring. A raccoon’s mating season is from January through March, with a female raccoon giving birth to between 4-6 young. They will begin to hunt for themselves between 9-12 weeks of age but may stay with their mother up to a year old. Be wary of a mother raccoon with her young as she will tend to be extremely aggressive to protect them.
Raccoons are omnivorous and opportunistic so they will eat anything they can get their hands on. It is not uncommon to see raccoons eating fruits, nuts, berries, insects, rodents, frogs, eggs. In urban and suburban areas they are known for foraging in trash cans. Raccoons are also frequently caught eating pet food that is left outside or in garages.
Raccoons usually live in dens that they have made in trees or sewers. However, raccoons are more and more frequently choosing to make their dens in attics as it provides shelter, warmth, and safety for their young and themselves. They will burrow into your insulation, chew on wires, tear holes in the sides of your house, and even come down into your home if you have food that is not tightly stored. They have also been known to make their dens in and around chimneys, which causes several problems including people in the home inhaling urine and feces, or the raccoons getting stuck and dying.
Fun fact – A raccoon’s paw has an appendage that acts as a thumb so they are able to get into more than you would think!
