Round, furry animals with bushy tails and a black fur mask covering the region of their eyes are racoons. These animals can look like cute cuddly robbers, but when confronted or cornered, raccoons are dangerous. Raccoons have sharp teeth, claws, and the ability to do serious harm. If a person is within reach of a raccoon’s mouth, it may lunge and bite. Most common attacks happen because a mother raccoon feels there is a threat against her babies. They can shred through human skin like butter leaving behind a nasty gash. In many cases, people who have been bitten by a raccoon needed stitches.

Bandit-masked raccoons are a familiar sight just about everywhere in north America and they eat just about everything. In forests, marshes, prairies, and even in cities, these ubiquitous mammals are found. They are adaptable and find/feast on a wide range of food using their dexterous front paws and long fingers.

What Do Raccoons Look Like?

A black mask over the eyes and a bushy tail with anywhere from four to ten black rings differentiate the raccoons. The forepaws look like slim human hands which make it rather dexterous for the raccoon.

The coloration of the raccoon ranges from grey/black to reddish brown, but varies with the habitat the raccoon is found in. Raccoons have a stocky build and are usually six to seven kilograms in weight. Typically, males are heavier than females. The length of the body ranges from 603 to 950 mm.

What Is A Raccoon’s Preferred Habitat?

Raccoons are common in much of North America, but in parts of the Rocky Mountains and some southwestern states you won’t see them. They also can be found in Canada, Mexico, and South America’s northern area. Efficient migration elsewhere in the world, such as Russia, Japan and Germany have broadened their worldwide populations.

These animals foraged along tropical riverbanks once upon a time. By moving north and adapting to whatever territory suited them, they extended their habitat. Clever animals in cold northern winters, they learned to take shelter in barns and homes to keep warm. Raccoons can be found as far north as Canada and as far south as Panama. The raccoon is a special species because of how adaptable they are. Raccoons have migrated to urban areas as their natural habitat has been invaded by humans. As long as food, water, and shelter is provided, the raccoon will thrive. Once they understand where food and water are provided, it will prove difficult to prevent raccoons from returning to the area.

These adaptable characteristics will make it easy for raccoons to find a place to call home, whether on a farm, in a marsh, prairie or in the forest. A raccoon’s home depends on his environment. Raccoons prefer dark, dry and warm areas which provide protection from predators such as dog packs or coyotes. As a resting spot, tree cavities, a rocky cavern or hollow logs suit the raccoon species well. Most wildlife can’t survive in urban setting, but of course the easygoing raccoon can do it. Raccoons survive in urban settings by taking advantage of drain pipes, crawl spaces, garbage bins, basements and attics.

Common Food Sources For Raccoons

As omnivores, raccoons eat meat and plants. Typical raccoon diets include: cherries, apples, acorns, persimmons, bananas, peaches, citrus fruit, plums, wild grapes, figs, watermelons, beech nuts, corn and walnuts.

When it comes to meat, raccoons consume more invertebrates than vertebrates. Frogs, frogs, crayfish, birds, mice and bird eggs are some of the raccoon’s favorite meat treats. Raccoons aren’t beyond scavenging human garbage or eating roadkill when food is scarce. It is common to see raccoons rummaging around garbage bins.

Can Raccoons Get You Sick?

Raccoons are known to bear infectious diseases in the United States that can be spread to humans and animals that come into contact with sick raccoons or their waste. Raccoons, both young and old, will transmit viruses, bacteria and parasites that can lead to infections and disease when exposed to humans and animals. Without proper protection and adequate preparation, people should not come into contact with raccoons or their waste.

When touching or any exposure to bodily fluids or urine, racoons expose humans to disease. The most popular forms of exposure are saliva, urine, feces and bites or scratches. Contamination of the environment is frequent because raccoons will touch human garbage and leave the items anywhere they please.

Any person of any age who has come into contact with a raccoon, should immediately contact a health professional. Individuals who have engaged in any raccoon handling, treatment, feeding and cleaning should be tested for exposure to diseases and notified of any possible threats to human health caused by the raccoon diseases.

Damage Caused By The Raccoon Species

The most dangerous and damaging household invaders could be raccoons. Racoons are bigger than house cats and certain dog breeds, and with their strong dexterous paws, they can inflict significant collateral damage by ripping apart roofing, walls, and insulation.

Raccoon damage extends to disease because they may have rabies and their droppings contain deadly parasites. In order to remove the animal safely, you must call a wildlife professional if you have a raccoon in your home. As racoons are crafty and unpredictable, do not attempt to capture or remove the animal yourself.

How Can Raccoons Enter A home?

Through any holes or openings, raccoons may breach a building. At every viable hole they encounter, they will scratch and chew until the hole is large enough for them to move through. Some of the most common entry points are openings along the roof and dog/cat doors.

Leaving openings into the home is inviting a nearby raccoon to come and set up it’s home. Although garbage bins filled with food scraps are enticing places to forage in for raccoons, they will always try to find a way to seek safe shelter in homes. These creatures may be adorable to some people, but they can also cause residents harm and abuse. Being proactive can assist in the prevention of raccoons. Sealing up entry points and securing garbage bin will help prevent raccoons on your property.

Our Simple and Effective Process

Bj's Commercial Bird Netting

1. Inspection

Our team of AWR expert technicians are trained to find possible entry ways such as holes, un finished cement work, broken gutters, loose bricks, nesting grounds and more. Upon arrival, our team will gather all of the necessary details and information to assess the nuisance wildlife situation appropriately. This collection of information allows us to narrow down the problem areas, discover where the animals are accessing the problem area, and pinpoint where they are entering the home (if the problem is in the home). Once the technician(s) have all of the vital information needed to form a plan of attack, the animal removal process can be started if trapping is needed. If hand capture is needed, the process is a bit different than just trap setting. .

Known Commercial Property Nuisance & The Risk

 

Invasive Muscovy Ducks

Florida is home to a wide range of bird species including the invasive Muscovy duck. These are known as a huge pest through out Florida.

    • Wild Muscovy Ducks are dark-plumaged, wary birds of forested areas. Which makes Florida perfect for them. Domestic varieties—heavier, less agile birds with variable plumage—live on farms and in parks in warm climates around the world, where they can be confusing to bird watchers. Complicating the issue, male Muscovy Ducks frequently mate with other species and often produce sterile hybrid offspring.
    • Equipped with strong claws, Muscovy Ducks spend a lot of time perching in tall trees. They make their nests in large cavities of mature trees, but will also use artificial nest boxes. The first recorded wild nest in the United States was found in 1984, in a nest box built for Black-bellied Whistling-Ducks near Bentsen-Rio Grande Valley State Park.
    • The male Muscovy Duck is the largest duck in North America, but the female is only half his size. After laying 8–15 eggs, she does all of the nest defense and raises the ducklings (which have sharp claws and hooked bills to climb out of the nest). She may also raise additional eggs laid in her nest by sneaky Black-bellied Whistling Ducks.

Raccoons & Diseases

Early SignsThe two main indicators of a raccoon infestation in your home is visual and audible signs. Either of these is typically proof that a raccoon has made residence in the structure’s walls or attic. A good visual indication that a raccoon infestation is present is feces and damage. Feces is usually left on the roof or inside of the attic. Dirt and prints at times are left where they climb on to the roof and can lead you to damage around entry points.

In rural areas, raccoons harm poultry, destroy nests of birds, and cause damage to gardens or crops. Any sign of this kind of activity can be a good indication that there is a raccoon infestation. Hearing sounds of baby raccoons crying is also another indication that a homeowner may have a raccoon problem.

Rabies –  Not all raccoons have rabies, however raccoons as a whole host the majority of rabies cases in the United States. Being active during the day does not mean that raccoon has rabies. However, there are some signs that a raccoon could have rabies. There are some key signs of a rabid raccoon include confusion and disorientation, legs paralysis, difficulties trying to walk, wet and knotted hair, substantial aggression, and producing strange noises. Healthy raccoons do not react in this way.

Raccoon Roundworm –  Baylisascaris procyonis, the raccoon roundworm, is increasingly recognized as a source of zoonotic visceral, ocular, and neural larva migraines and, in particular, of devastating encephalitis in kids.  Exposure occurs primarily in raccoon latrines, where it is possible to consume large quantities of eggs unintentionally. A chunk of feces the size of the tip of a pinky finger can hold up to 10,000 roundworm eggs. These eggs can lie dormant in the soil for over a half of a decade and come to life as soon as they are ingested. 6 out of 10 raccoons are said to be infected. Infected humans can have side effects as severe as blindness and death.
