Characteristics of Raccoons:
Raccoons growth ends anywhere from 24 to 34 inches long and they have a distinctive black mask face with a ringed tale. They have a grayish thick fur coat with black tipping. Adults weigh from 8 to 20 pounds.
Habits and Lifestyle:
Raccoons are more active at night, and are known for their curious nature. Raccoons like to live near woods so they can run and hide but have learned to seek civilization to search and dig around in trash cans. When living deep, in the woods their preference is to live in hollow trees and logs near lakes and streams. Their thick under coat helps keep them dry when they search for food near the waters edge. They come out into populated areas when they're searching for food and refuge because most of the time food and shelter is easy to obtain. A few of their favorite man-made structures to live in are beneath porches, outbuildings, attics and even chimneys.
Signs of a raccoon pest
Asides from seeing a raccoon, other hints of a resident raccoon can include overturned trash cans, partially eaten garden items (such as corn or melons). Structural damage will also be apparent as they enter attics, office buildings and dig dens under porches . Lastly, fecal waste and tracks will clue people in to their nightly wanderings.
