Frequently Asked Questions

Raccoons are not true hibernators, meaning they do stay active year-round. That being said, you may see fewer raccoons in winter.

Raccoons cause various issues for homeowners. Their fecal matter has a very strong, unpleasant smell and is full of very harmful parasites and bacteria. The main concern is parasitic roundworm when being around or smelling raccoon droppings. Accidently ingesting or breathing in the eggs can cause larva migrans, which is a serious condition that can result in blindness, nerve damage, brain damage, and even death in some cases.

If you have raccoons living in your home, they can cause structural damage and make a mess of food, nesting, feces and other things.

Raccoons may also attack humans if they feel threatened. If you encounter a raccoon suffering from distemper or rabies, it may attack unprovoked.

Big cities are very populated with raccoons as they are scavengers, often going through garbage bins or bird feeders searching for human food. They sleep during the day, often looking for dark, warm nooks to hide away in. Since many attics provide darkness, warmth and lots of shelter away from humans, raccoons will often climb onto roofs and sneak into homes through chimneys, vents, or gaps in siding.

Raccoon-proof your attic by checking the integrity of your roof. Make sure there’s no cracks or potential entry points. Since raccoons have tiny, nimble hands, they’re able to rip off shingles and make small structural flaws bigger, in order to sneak through. Installing motion lights in or around your home also helps with chasing them off your property.

Before you seal up entryways into the home, it’s very important you ensure that you don’t have any raccoons living in your home. The last thing you want to do is seal them in.
