Raccoon Identification

Raccoons become pests due to their foraging and nesting habits. They are associated with trash consumption and notorious for their curious and shrewd natures. Raccoons can easily be identified by their color and markings that are similar to that of a classic burglar mask.

Appearance & Habitat

Raccoons eyes are encircled by black, which then runs down their cheeks. These animals range greatly in size, but are pretty easy to spot.

  • 7-30 pounds in weight
  • 3 feet long
  • Gray fur with hints of brown
  • Unique tail coloring that displays alternating rings of white and black

Raccoons are adaptable animals that can be found in almost every climate region, and have even learned to survive solely on human garbage. Their favorite areas of nesting locations in the wild include forests, marshes, and prairies, although some raccoons have learned that attics and crawlspaces of homes and businesses offer great protection and warmth.

Raccoon Entry

Male and female raccoons will enter homes for different reasons. Females seek safe shelter to provide shelter for their offspring, and male raccoons enter homes looking for food sources. Raccoons have hands structured in such a way that allows them to easily grasp objects, open doors, and open containers.

Raccoon Damage

Raccoons create damage inside and outside of homes and businesses. As omnivores, the animal will eat almost anything. While foraging for food in yards, gardens, and farmland, raccoons create holes and other unsightly damages. Raccoon damage to your home will begin at the point of entry. These strong animals can tear through almost anything to get where they desire to be. Once inside the raccoons will create extensive damages in a short amount of time, including urine stains, droppings in the attic, and more. Raccoons have been known to occasionally attack livestock, such as poultry, and common house pets like cats and dogs.
