Raccoons are well recognized medium-sized mammals native common in both urban and rural areas. They are nocturnal critters that take advantage of their close proximity to humans (and their trash). In fact, they rely a great deal on us for food and take shelter in and around our homes and buildings.
Are they dangerous?
If threatened or cornered raccoons may become very aggressive animals. Coupled with the fact that they are common carriers of rabies, it is clear that raccoons can be dangerous. Because they are searching for new sources of food and shelter, many homeowners encounter these pests in attics, under decks and in other areas in and around the dwelling. These masked bandits are also a threat to property, causing extensive damage to structures and belongings if left unaddressed.
So why do I have a raccoon problem?
Available food sources such as dog food and open trash receptacles are the most common reasons to have raccoons. During the winter months these animals will look for a place to nest and commonly use attics when easy access is provided. Once spring arrives, it’s not uncommon to find out your home or building is being used as a nursery for baby raccoons.
