Have you heard strange noises in your chimney? Have you found raccoons living under your home? The noises may be a raccoon! Read on for information on your raccoon control problem.

Appearance & Habitat

Raccoons have markings that make them extremely easy to identify. Similar to a classic burglar mask, raccoons have black markings around each eyes and their tails are very unique with the alternating rings of white and black.

Raccoons will adapt to their surroundings. Their favorite nesting locations include forests, marshes, and prairies. These savages can survive solely on humane garbage, making your home and business a great spot for food supply.

Raccoon Problems

Raccoon Entry

Raccoons are very strong animals and their hands are structured in such a way that allows them to grasp objects. Raccoons can get through almost anything if they desire to. Male and female raccoons will enter your home for different reasons. Males look for a food source and females enter attics, chimneys, and other areas for a safe place to raise their offspring. Due to their strength, raccoons will cause extensive damages upon entry alone.

Raccoon Damages

Raccoons create damages to yards and inside of buildings alike. These animals will eat almost anything, including vegetation found in gardens and on farmland. When raccoons enter your home, their droppings will create an unhealthy environment. Not only are their droppings smelly and difficult to remove, they also carry diseases. Raccoons can be vicious when approached and may even attack livestock and pets.
