If you spend even a tiny bit of time online, you’ve probably seen numerous stories about people adopting baby raccoons and keeping them as pets. So if raccoons can be pets, having one living in your attic or in your yard is no big deal, right? Not true. Keeping raccoons as pets is a bad idea and doesn’t change the fact how destructive raccoons can be. All they care about is finding food and shelter, even if it means breaking into your attic or stealing pet food from your porch.
Take a look at this video explaining more about how raccoons adapted to the urban environment:
Raccoons are very smart and have a good memory. If they mentally bookmarked your home once as a source of food or a potentially good place for a den, it will take more than a broom to get rid of them. Thanks to their anatomy, raccoons are very good with their hands and have amazing dexterity. While in the human world being good with your hands means a good thing, in the animals world it usually means using hands to rip open flashing, boards, shingles and anything else that can be ripped.
Once inside your attic, walls or crawlspace, raccoons may damage insulation, tear air ducts and leave their urine and feces all over the place. These are the reasons why you should be concerned if you discover raccoons in your home or on your property.
Removing raccoons from an attic, chimney or another tight space can be complicated. Many raccoons are too smart to walk into a cage to take the bait, so sometimes they have to be extracted manually. If there are baby raccoons involved, it can be a challenge to find them in a dark, stuffy attic, because mother usually does a good job of hiding them. When provoked or threatened, raccoons can also get aggressive, which may further complicate the situation. That’s why we advise to request professional help for raccoon removal in Westminster.
