Physical Characteristics: Raccoons are mammals known for their dexterous front paws, facial mask and bushy tail. They can range from 18-36” in length and can weigh between 8 and 20 pounds. Raccoons are usually nocturnal, but can appear during the daytime in search for food.
Diet: Raccoons are omnivores, meaning they will consume a wide variety of foods. They prefer items that are easily accessible such are vegetation, fruits and household garbage.
Breeding: Raccoons have one litter of “kits” between the months of April and May, ranging from 3 to 6 kits.
Habitat: Raccoons prefer wooded areas but have migrated to mountainous ranges, coastal marshes and urban areas. When raccoons enter domesticated locations they can quickly become a nuisance by finding shelter in attics, chimneys, outdoor buildings and beneath porches. Raccoon waste can also cause disease problems for humans.
Inspections: The first thing to do in wildlife control is a proper inspection. We will determine if raccoons are the problem. Evidence of raccoons at your location include: damage, fecal droppings, footprints, hearing noises at night and sighting raccoon around your property.
Trapping: Humane trapping and exclusion measures will be taken to keep raccoons from returning to their nesting site on your property or in your home.
