Raccoons may look cute and cuddlesome in appearance, but the mask they wear perfectly matches with their characteristics and their personality. Raccoons are cunning in nature, and they can run off with your food and even end up lodging in your home. It’s quite essential to have knowledge about raccoons including their traits, other characteristics, and habits.
Raccoon (or Procyon) is a native animal found in North and South America. They also exist in parts of Southern Canada and Europe (Germany). If you have never seen a raccoon, it’s obvious what they are when you look at them face to face. They have a peculiar black ‘mask’ over their eyes and also on the ringtail. Their weight ranges anywhere between 10-20 lbs( some fatties can even weigh up to 30 lbs) and are generally two and a half feet long from nose to tail. Raccoons have a lifespan of 15 years although most of them are unable to survive due to diseases, predators, and even being killed by humans or on the road.
Raccoons can be found in the crawlspace, chimneys and the attic. They vandalize your home as they rip-off your roof. We catch raccoons from your garage, yard and home. When you need a professional raccoon removal, call AAAC Wildlife Removal Houston.

We will replace the insulation, clean-up, sanitize as well as deodorize and if required will also mend any entry points and fix the harm caused by them.
Raccoons love fruits, plants, nuts, insects, fish, birds, snakes, and other small animals. They will search your trash and also steal your pet’s food. They will not even spare those beautiful flowers planted in your garden and will end up digging them. Some people dump cooking grease behind the fence to keep its odor away from the vicinity of their home. Earlier, all kinds of animals used to wait outside your house for feeding. Indeed, it’s a mounting task to flee them away once they start living in the locality.
Raccoons being nocturnal eaters, are rarely seen during the daylight. There is a presence of raccoon if you hear noises on your roof, in your chimney or your attic, especially during the night. In such a situation, the best way is to call the professionals to examine your home and assess the situation. Traps are required to be set in those spots where raccoons often visit. It can be a hazard for you and your family if you don’t eliminate raccoons before they start reproducing which can be anywhere from early spring to late summer. To be exact, Momma raccoons normally reproduce 4 babies or kits.
A piece of advice, if you are incapable of removing the single raccoon before their reproduction season starts and once their babies are born, the momma raccoon tends to become more threatening as it considers that her newborns are being threatened.
Raccoons in the attic or crawlspace defecate, urinate and contaminate attic insulation. Coming in contact with these droppings can be very dangerous for anyone as they could be contaminated with raccoon roundworm. Raccoon roundworm disease can be very deadly and usually affects small children who recklessly swallow the droppings while playing in a yard or a playground. Raccoons carry harmful diseases like rabies, distemper, etc. and these diseases can be transmitted to humans and also to your pets. Be sure to have your pets immunized against these harmful and deadly diseases.
Here are a few tips to keep away unwanted raccoons:
Feed all the pets inside the house and get rid of food in your yards or garages, including trash cans without a lid.
Halt the water supply as raccoons love water and will look for food in the areas with water.
Block or destroy any area in your home which can serve as a shelter for them which includes areas like attics, chimneys, and garages.

Trapping raccoons in most of the cases are essential. With years of experience, we know how to get rid of raccoons. To avoid harm to raccoons it’s significant to trap a raccoon humanely and also to have a proper plan for getting rid of a raccoon. A raccoon can be removed efficiently with adequate training.
Often a raccoon will find itself in a dumpster or a window well which is likely to be a hazardous situation. Moreover, there is always a peril of being bitten by the animal. Inexperienced people should never attempt to remove a raccoon in any situation.
Raccoons do sometimes die in strange places and must be eliminated as soon as possible. Leaving them will subsequently lead to worsening of the situation and can cause further harm to your home and entice other animals and insects. Getting rid of the raccoons is necessary to make your home hygienic again. It’s better to get rid of raccoons before it’s too late!
There is a probability of many raccoons being the carrier of deadly diseases that can be fatal to humans like fleas, ticks, lice, tapeworms, roundworms, distemper, leptospirosis, tuberculosis, rabies, etc.
These diseases can be harmful to family pets (especially distemper and leptospirosis in dogs). Nonetheless, don’t be scared as most of the bacteria dispersed by feces and saliva does not come in contact with humans. However, always be conscious for your pets.
