The adult Raccoon is a stocky mammal about 2 to 3 feet long and weighs 7 to 30 pounds. It is distinctively marked with a black “mask” over the eyes and is heavily furred with alternating light and dark rings around its tail. Raccoons are active year round but may take cover in dens during periods of severe winter weather.
Most people find them cute with their masks and little hands, but don’t be fooled. These critters do not want to be picked up and cuddled. Especially if it is a mother Raccoon defending her young.
Damage Raccoons Cause
Raccoons can destroy attics, interior walls above garages and the crawl spaces under a home. Gardens are another area that Raccoons will dig up. They can also ruin lawns looking for worms and grubs underground.
Options for Raccoon Removal
Trapping: We install a one way door trap to live trap the Raccoon. This is especially effective with the Raccoon is a mother and there is a litter of baby Raccoons. This set-up allows the mother Raccoon to leave and not get back into the area (an attic for example). We then can exclude the area sealing openings which had allowed access. We later return to remove the trap and captured Raccoon.
Exclusion: We use special stainless steel (non-rusting) material which prevents the intrusion of Raccoons into a sealed area.
