Raccoons are nuisance animals invading both urban and rural properties with the sole intention of surviving. They have a distinctive black mask and ringed tail and are typically black and gray.
Agile and excellent climbers, adapt to live anywhere. They invade attics, crawl spaces, the deck, shed, chimney, roof, and even garbage cans. They weigh about 10-25 pounds and live up to 12 years in the wild.
Like most mammals, these creatures are mainly nocturnal but may look for food during the day. The female can give birth to 1-7 kits, of an average of 4 of these animals each.
Raccoons will tear a hole into your attic and defecate, urinate to create a mess, and damage your attic insulation.
