Raccoons have adapted to living with humans. They find trash cans and dumpsters as excellent sources of food, and human houses as excellent habitat. Raccoons often tear a hole in the roof to gain access to an attic, where they create mess and noise. If you have a raccoon living in your attic, it is going to make a huge mess and leave a lot of droppings. These animals are strong, and once they enter an attic, they often tear off insulation off pipes, etc. In search for food, they will tip over trash cans, raid dumpsters, and steal pet food. Raccoons are the carriers of a number of parasites and diseases that can affect humans or pets.
It is easy to recognize raccoons with their black mask and ringed tail. Adults weigh 10 lbs and up, with some reaching over 40lbs. Their average life span is closer to 5-6 years. Raccoons mate in the winter, and the females give birth to 3-5 young ones. Like most mammals, they are nocturnal, though some can be easily spotted during the daytime, often when they are searching for food. They are omnivores, and will eat almost anything.
They are very common animals, particularly in St. Catharines, Niagara falls, Welland and Grimsby. They are good climbers, and have very skillful hands. They are strong, and they love to explore, tearing areas open in their quest for food and shelter. They den in trees, and in attics.
Raccoons are a common carrier of rabies, a potentially deadly disease. They are also carriers of canine distemper, which can kill your pet. Their feces may contain roundworm, the spores of which when humans breathe, can cause serious infections. It is due to these health concerns why it is important to capture raccoons living in human habitat.
