Raccoons are nuisance animals invading both urban and rural properties with the sole intention of surviving. They have a distinctive black mask and ringed tail and are typically black and gray.
Agile and excellent climbers, they adapt to live anywhere. They end up invading attics, crawl spaces, the deck, shed, chimney, roof, and even garbage cans. They weigh about 10-25 pounds and live up to 12 years in the wild.
Like most mammals, these creatures are mainly nocturnal and dislike bright light but may look for food during the day. The female can give birth to 1-7 kits, of an average of 4 of these animals each.
Raccoons will tear a hole into your attic and defecate, urinate to create a mess, and damage your attic insulation. They carry parasites and diseases dangerous to both animals and people, giving more reason to call your local animal removal services.
