    Raccoon Control

    We’re Just One Phone Call Away!

    Raccoons! They’re cute animals no doubt and many people have often wondered why they cannot be domesticated like cats or dogs. This because raccoons are not as social as our other pets are. Raccoons, other than being cute have no more to offer. They cannot be domesticated since they have a rather aggressive approach to dealing with humans. They will bite you if they don’t agree with you or if you encroach on their personal space. Raccoons have therefore transformed themselves into more of pest creature. Additionally, they are known to be dangerous and can also infect us with a number of diseases most notably rabies. Raccoons do not relate well with our other pets and are strong and aggressive enough to kill a cat or a dog. Raccoons after not being able to be domesticated invade our homes and cause plenty of damage. This is by taking up shelter in our attics and our chimneys. They are noisy and destructive. Their feces and urine give breed to dangerous micro-organisms that can get airborne and cause severe chest conditions. These are the many reasons that have made raccoon removal essential for the health of many homes. This is where Nuisance Wildlife Rangers comes in. With many years of experience, we have the most dedicated and apt teams to deal with raccoons.

    raccoon removalWhy Are Raccoons Considered Pests?

    A pest is a species of animal that causes damage and harm to humans. Pests cause damage as they destroy crops buildings and cause physical harm or affect us negatively in an economic way. Raccoons fulfill quite a number in their nuisance causing capabilities. Raccoons prefer to live in their natural habitats in wooded areas near water. Their habitat has however shrunk because of human influence. This has made them migrate into suburban America and thus the reason for most conflicts. They choose to live in yards and in chimneys attics, vents, and roofs. With this comes their destruction of the same said property. Raccoons have super dexterous paws. This makes them tear through anything interesting that they come along. Raccoons are also very inquisitive and will go through everything in your house in search of food or simply curiosity. This is because raccoons are credited for having superior intelligence. Raccoons are very noisy animals. You are bound to definitely feel their impact in your life if they choose to settle in your house. They are known carriers of the rabies virus. This means that allowing raccoons to interact with your pets can end disastrously for you. They’ll leave you exposed to diseases as your animals could also bite you.

    Why Are Raccoons Dangerous To Home Owners?

    As above mentioned, raccoons are very dangerous buggers. Their ability to cause destruction upon your home is unparalleled among the creatures their size. They can create large holes in your walls and as well tear apart the insulation of your attic. This leaves you exposed to heat and cold fluctuations that are frustrating and as well the image of a badly kept house. Females are often responsible for most of the destruction as they build dens for their pups. They will tear roofs apart and remove or destroy air conditioning ducts. If by any unfortunate instance a raccoon manages to build a nest, it soon after starts to defecate in the place it has built the nest. Raccoon feces and urine cause a hoard of dangerous diseases. Some diseases they’re likely to infect you with include salmonella, which cause digestive problems. Mostly severe diarrhea and abdominal pain. Sharing house space with raccoons also means increasing the possibility of physical confrontations. This means bites and scratches. It is important to have raccoon bites and scratches immediately treated as they could soon become infected.

    What Should I Do With A Raccoon Problem?

    If you already have a raccoon problem or see raccoons coming to encroach your compound space, just call an expert to manage this problem for you. Raccoons are not an easy species to manage alone. They are incredibly smart and will have all sorts of counters against any measures you put against them. Trying to deter raccoons or trap them may end badly both in terms of physical confrontation and the aspect that this may end up being an illegal exercise. In many states, it is considered illegal to try and move raccoons. This is because they may have off-springs in the near. This means trapping them or relocating them could lead to the death of their kits. It is usually very hard to find their kits so it is important to employ the employ an expert to do this. Only licensed wildlife handlers are allowed to relocate these animals. Trying to get rid of raccoons could go really badly and never really find a solution. This could go on and on without you managing to successfully get rid of raccoons. To avid frustrations and spent efforts, just allow an expert to help you. There is always the possibility of contracting rabies from a raccoon bite among other strange and deadly diseases.

    What Scents Keep Raccoons Away?

    Well, in this case, there are quite a number of useful substances and natural plants that can prove effective in keeping raccoons away. Raccoons have a very strong sense of smell and use their scent to track food. Using ammonia to drive them away is very effective. Ammonia releases a very strong and pungent smell that is unbearable even for us humans. Pouring cups of ammonia along those places where raccoons have been spotted really helps to chase them away. They just can’t stand it! Cayenne pepper. This is among the more friendly ways to fend off raccoons. Spraying a solution of cayenne in places like dumpsters is a really good idea. Raccoons are drawn to dumpsters for food and once they find the food is laced with pepper, they might not find your home as welcoming and this might go well into keeping them away. Mothballs are also a solution worth considering. These are chemicals which raccoons really hate. People often use them in garbage cans ward raccoons off. They should be used with care as children or other members of the family could get affected by the chemicals in mothballs. Ammonia should also be used carefully. It is really powerful and should be used when the raccoon problem is just overwhelming.

    Raccoons In My Attic

    Almost always when there is a raccoon in your attic, this is usually a female raccoon. Female raccoons will try their very best to find a safe spot to nest when they are pregnant. This is mostly so that the kits will be able to survive. Human habitats have become the best places to hide for most of these animals. This is because they are safe places which are warm. If we are being humane, it is not right to kick out a raccoon out of your attic if it has kits. This might mean that they will die. Instead, you could wait for about eight months and let them move out on their own when they’re all grown up. Don’t try trapping the animal and relocating it. It likely has babies who will starve and die if the mother is absent. Additionally, relocating it means the mother will try as best as it can to find her litter and may very well die in this process. This is because of unfamiliarity with the new environment, refusal to feed and this may mean the raccoon might get hit by trucks getting back to her young. It is really a sad thing to imagine. Avoid using inhumane methods. You could also consider using sins to tell the raccoons to get out. This could mean making their environment s uncomfortable as possible. Consider using loud music and flashing signs. This bothers the animal to decide to find a better place to hide. It is most wise to just call an animal control expert to handle this matter for you. Experts know the laws on raccoon removal. They will likely do a humane job and will take extra care handling the babies. The last thing to do once the raccoon are out properly seals the attic to ensure that the raccoons do not find entry back into your space.

    Dangers Of Raccoons

    Raccoons are admirable animals because of their inquisitive nature and their good looks. They look like little Zorros always up to no good. The cute kind of up to no good. However, they’re accompanied by plenty of evil-doing. Raccoons will ensure other pets find no peace. Raccoons are very inquisitive creatures. They are also fairly aggressive and are not afraid to wrestle other animals for territorial disputes. This can end badly if your pet is killed. Getting bit by rabies infected raccoon doesn’t give you superpowers. It gives you rabies. This means you must get treated for said illness. Raccoons are a known rabies carrying species. Avoid raccoons in your compound and avoid having to get rabies shots. Property damage. We all hate having to have unnecessary and costly repairs done for our house, don’t we? Well, raccoons will cause massive holes in your house and they possess a unique destructive force. Given the time they can render your home uninhabitable. They tear roofs and break pipes which leads to spillages. They also defecate and urinate on wood which leaves it unattractive to look at. This means more repairs. Their urine and defecation may also cause you to contract diseases. Raccoons are ferocious creatures. Handling them or letting them around our compound can mean you might get scratched or bit.

    Raccoon Prevention.

    The best way to avoid having to deal with a raccoon problem is simply to prevent one. There a number of ways one can use to avoid a raccoon problem. Raccoons are drawn to our homes mostly because of food. Humans have become notorious for leaving food in garbage cans and raccoons just can’t help but settle with us in our homes where they have a regular food supply. This means that to prevent raccoons from taking up our space, cover up garbage bins effectively with super tight seal bag. This will make the raccoon is unable to open the trash bags and they can’t settle in your home. With outdoor pets, do not leave food outside otherwise the raccoons will come in to claim your pets’ food. Ensure you have a very clean garden that does not have any fallen fruits that can attract them. They are omnivorous feeders and will not just eat meat, they will also eat fruits. If your neighbors have raccoons in their homes, encourage them to call wildlife control to manage the situation. This ensures that they don’t go causing damage all around the neighborhood.

    Feeding Raccoons

    Like most other wildlife, raccoons are perfectly capable of finding their own food. It is then important to ensure that you do not feed raccoons. This prevents them from associating humans with food. This is important because they revere us more and goes a long way to ensure they don’t attract them into our homes. This will ensure that we increase their survival chances. Animals that are heavily dependent o human beings or their food can suffer immensely should a human decide to relocate or if the animals encounter other humans who are not as friendly as the initial friendly human.

    Handing Aggressive Raccoons

    Raccoons do not have a first instinct to be aggressive with people. This happens when the raccoon feels cornered and as a last resort. Allow the raccoon some space to come out of the cornered position. Then wave your hands to show it away and it will leave. If you spot an aggressive raccoon in your yard you could chase it away by spraying a jet of water on it from your water hose. Always avoid charging aggressively at it. This may end very badly. An aggressive one may very well mean that it is infected with rabies.

    Raccoons are not the friendliest bunch. They have the strength and agility that would scare most. They are better left in the wild where they would do well and help the eco-system. When raccoons decide to settle with us they are no doubt definitely a nuisance to us. It is therefore important that raccoon removal is done to reduce some of the effects that come along with them. This is why Nuisance Wildlife Rangers s here. With over four years in the business of wildlife control, we are definitely the best anyone could rely on when it comes to getting these strange little creatures out of your space.

    Damage that Raccoons do to Your Home or Building

    Raccoons, true to their robber-like appearance, can cause plenty of chaos in and around your home. They can cause thousands of dollars’ worth of damage and waste hours of your life as you try to get rid of them. What kind of damage do they cause? Read on to find out!

    Trampled Garden

    Like with most pests invading your home, the garden will be the raccoon’s first target. The hours you spent cultivating your yard to make it look good and even bear fruit will be wasted once these critters show up. Any fruits and vegetables you have growing will quickly be chowed on, as raccoons can be quite partial to them. You’ll even see these invaders tossing up dirt and ruining your garden by digging holes all over the place as they search for worms and other insects to eat.

    Torn Down Walls

    Most raccoons trying to get into your home are on the run and in search of some warm shelter, and your home just happens to be the perfect place. When they get desperate enough, raccoons are known to claw at a home’s walls to make an entry. They might also try to chew or remove boards in their way. This is especially true for female raccoons looking for a safe place to raise their young.

    Destroyed Insulation

    The dark, abandoned space in your attic is usually a raccoon’s prime target. Unfortunately, that’s also where all your home’s insulation is, so you can imagine the damage they’ll cause. Not only will they rip through it by accident, thanks to their large and heavy bodies, but female raccoons are known to frequently use the stuff to build their nests. This in turn helps weaken your home’s structure and makes maintaining the right temperature much harder.

    Your pipe’s insulation isn’t safe either, and their removal can cause the water to freeze up in the winter and the pipes to burst, doing plenty of structural damage to your home.

    Ripped Ductwork

    The damage to insulation isn’t the only thing messing with your home’s temperature as raccoons are particularly fond of tearing through ductwork. It’s currently unknown why raccoons do it, but it’s probably to satisfy their curiosity, find out what’s hidden in your ducts, and to find new pathways. Regardless, this will end up requiring you to pay a lot more for heating and will even cost you thousands to get it all fixed up.

    Chewed Up Wires

    For some reason or another, raccoons also love to chew through wires. As you can imagine, this is pretty dangerous and can have severe consequences for your home. Not only do you risk being electrocuted if you touch the exposed wires, but the chewed wire can be a fire risk as well.

    Help Is Just a Call Away

    While raccoons cause plenty of damage to your home, destroy your garden, break through your walls, damage your insulation, ruin ductwork, and chew up wires, there’s always a way to get rid of them. That’s why you should be sure to call Nuisance Wildlife Rangers if you live in Florida, to sort out all your raccoon problems and keep your home and livelihood safe.

    How to Keep Raccoons Out of The Roof

    In this post, we’ll tell you exactly how to keep raccoons off your roof. Raccoons are harmless for the most part, but they do make a huge mess by rummaging through your trash and eating through wires and other fixtures on your property.

    These animals are known to be persistent, but it’s not impossible to keep them away from your home. Keep reading to find out everything you need to know about this topic.

    1. Trim Your Trees

    The most simple way to keep raccoons off your roof is by trimming the trees on your property. Long tree branches are the perfect way for raccoons to climb and jump onto your roof. So you want to keep your tree limbs short and angled away from your roof and any windows.

    In addition, also make sure to keep the exterior of your house free of plants. You don’t want vines growing on the side of your house, as raccoons can use this to climb up onto your roof.

    1. Protect Your Roof With Metal Sheeting

    If raccoons are still managing to get onto your roof, even after you take care of your plants and trees, the next step is to protect your roof with metal sheeting. You can have metal sheeting professionally installed onto your roof.

    This will make it much harder for raccoons to climb onto your roof. If you want, you can even place metal sheeting around your trees, but this is up to you.

    1. Secure Your Trash and Get Rid of Food Sources

    You always want to keep your trash secure and closed up, regardless of what kind of wildlife you are dealing with. Open trash bags and trash cans without lids are like a beacon to animals in the area around your house. And, raccoons love munching on soggy trash.

    The best way to keep raccoons away from your home, and your roof, is by getting a secure trash container. After you get one, clean up the exterior of your home. Make sure there is no pet food, human food, or other snacks for raccoons to eat. Also, try to put mesh wire around your garden if you are growing fruits and vegetables. This way the raccoons can’t eat what you are growing.

    1. Use Repellent Spray and Devices

    The other methods we have talked about should work well and keep raccoons from climbing on your roof. But, if the raccoons on your property are really stubborn, we recommend trying raccoon repellent and other repellent devices.

    Natural repellent is the best option, as you don’t want to poison or harm wildlife. Raccoons have a keen sense of smell and are sensitive to strong odors. This includes peppers, garlic, peppermint, and onion. Mix some of these ingredients into a spray bottle with water and spread the repellant around the perimeter of your home.

    At the same time, you can also install some raccoon repellent devices. Bright lights with motion detection and raccoon alarms can keep these pests away from your roof.

    How to Keep Raccoons Away from Your Garbage Can?

    Raccoons are among the most common nuisance wild animals you’re likely to encounter on your property. It’s not uncommon for homeowners to hear raccoons rummaging through their trash cans at night, and wonder what they need to do to prevent that from happening.

    But before we can talk about that, we need to understand a couple of things about who we’re dealing with here.

    Raccoons are nocturnal mammals that can weigh between 11 to 57 pounds, which are made all the more perilous (for your trash cans, at least) by the fact that they are omnivores. This means that raccoons really aren’t picky about their next meal, which in turn, makes it trickier for you to ward them off.

    Right, so what can you do to keep raccoons out of your trash?

    • Switch up your cans.

    Many specialty stores (or online stores) now sell trash cans that are trickier to open. These aren’t your average trash cans, where any semi-skillful critter can shift off the lid, or topple, to gain easy access to all the yummy edibles within.

    So one thing you can do to prevent raccoon invasions in your trash is simply opting for better, sealable trash cans that only you can open. Trust us. The raccoons will get tired of trying to open your trash cans quickly, and leave to look for easier prey.

    Alternatively, you could just invest in special trash can straps that’ll keep your trash lid secured (although it may weaken or become damaged in time).

    • Clean them regularly.

    One common issue for many raccoon-attractive households is that they don’t clean up their trash cans regularly. Obviously, since you’re always dumping food items, liquids, and other trash within, the cans themselves will get dirty pretty quickly, and the filth will only keep mounting as time wears on.

    And since that dirt is also, basically, edible, the smell will attract raccoons, as well as other night-time predators. So another important step is hosing down and scrubbing your cans regularly.

    • Bring them indoors.

    If changing the trash cans for sealable ones isn’t on the agenda for you just yet, you could also try bringing the trash cans indoors at night (most commonly in the shed or garage). This can provide ample protection against trash can raiders like raccoons or opossums.

    • Put up a fence.

    Really, one of the easiest, most common ways to keep nuisance wildlife off your property is putting up a fence. If they can’t get to the trash cans, you won’t have to worry, right?

    Fencing your whole yard will also protect other common attraction points like fruit trees, bird baths, pet food bowls, ponds, and garden patches. Not to mention the great part about a fence is that it keeps several other critters away, as well, not just raccoons.

    • Spruce up your yard.

    One easy trick that homeowners often neglect in their battle against vermin is regularly trimming and caring for their lawn. It might not sound like much, but a lot of animals, including raccoons, tend to shy away from well-maintained lawns. If the grass is low, this will give them poor coverage from larger predators (including you).

    Similarly, caring for your yard also involves removing excessive wood log piles, and other such items that may provide an easy hiding place for foraging raccoons.

    • Turn on the light.

    Since raccoons are nocturnal, this means their eyesight is pretty poor. So something as simple as turning on the porch light can be enough to deter them from raiding your yard.

    Alternatively, you may want to purchase special yard lighting equipment, or even invest in a raccoon light deterrent.

    How To Prevent Raccoons From Entering Your Garden?

    Raccoons are a common wildlife threat. These animals love to enter your garden and destroy it, as they look for things to eat. They also carry several parasites and diseases, like rabies, so you should be cautious around them.

    Here are a few techniques you could use to prevent raccoons from entering your garden.

    Remove Their Food Source

    Raccoons enter your garden in search of food. By removing any potential food source, you’re giving them one less reason to enter in the first place.

    1. Seal Your Garbage

    Raccoons are notorious for rummaging through trash cans. They do this to find food amongst all the garbage. That’s why you should fasten the lid on your trash can every time you throw something out.

    The lids prevent the smell from getting out and attracting wildlife. It also stops raccoons from climbing into the trash can.

    2. Remove Animal Food

    Whether you have pets or love to feed nearby birds, you should consider where you place this food. Both pet food and bird seeds attract raccoons, so it’s a good idea to remove them from your garden.

    If possible, feed your pets indoors. This way the smell can’t get out to attract wild raccoons. You could also clean up the food immediately after your pet is done with it.

    If you don’t want to completely get rid of your bird feeders, you could try changing the food you give them. Certain bird food has been covered in spicy substances that don’t affect birds, but which irritate any raccoons trying to steal from them. These are an excellent choice, but the effectiveness may vary.

    3. Remove Vegetation

    Another way to remove the raccoons’ food is to remove any fruits and vegetables in your garden. You could either grow more cosmetic plants, or simply harvest the produce the moment it’s ripened before any wildlife gets to it.

    4. Remove Standing Water

    Like food, raccoons are always on the lookout for sources of water. If your garden has a small puddle or other standing water (such as on a bird feeder or for your pets) then you should consider removing these.

    Without easy access to water, raccoons are much less likely to stick around.

    Use Repellents

    Repellents are an incredibly attractive choice as they offer an easy fix to a raccoon problem. However, none of these methods are guaranteed to work because the allure of food and shelter may be too great.

    1. Install Bright Lights And Loud Sounds

    Just like any other animal, raccoons get scared of sudden movement, lights, and sounds. You can use this to your advantage by installing radios, sprinklers, strobe lights, or more specialized devices that trigger when a raccoon approaches at night.

    2. Use Strong Smells

    Certain substances like vinegar, garlic, cayenne powder, ammonia, and predator urine give off a strong stench that irritates raccoons. You could try spreading these substances around the perimeter of your garden to ward off any raccoons.

    3. Grow Different Plants

    There are certain plants that raccoons seem to dislike, so it’s a good idea to plant these in your garden in hopes of repelling the animals.

    One option is to grow cucumbers. Raccoons don’t like these plants because of their large leaves and prickly vines.

    Another option is the squash plant. These plants are also very prickly, so raccoons will be hesitant to try and eat them.

    Block Their Entry

    You can prevent raccoons from entering your garden by making it a much more challenging endeavor.

    1. Install A Fence

    One approach is to install a fence around your garden. This fence should be at least 4 foot high. But raccoons are excellent climbers, so you should consider installing an electric fence to make it harder for them to climb.

    2. Remove Access Points

    Sometimes a raccoon has a small entry that you don’t realize, like a small gap in an existing fence. You should take the time to find and seal these access points to make it harder for the animal to get in.

    3. Clear Any Debris

    If your garden has debris and other items lying around, you should take the time to clear them up. These things provide raccoons with hiding spots as they enter your garden. By removing them, you can make them feel more uneasy about entering.

    Call Nuisance Wildlife Rangers

    Whether you already have raccoons in your garden, or you’re looking for ways to prevent them, you should consider calling a professional. Experts like Nuisance Wildlife Rangers offer to remove any animals from your property and can prevent them from appearing in the future.

    raccoon in atticWhat Are the Ways to Stop a Raccoon from Returning?

    One feature of the raccoon is that it is very resourceful and determined. Once a raccoon finds an area where it can find shelter and food, it will keep coming back until either the raccoon dies or the area quits being a refuge. If you are tired of having the same raccoons come back to your property, continue reading to learn how you can stop raccoons from returning.

    Seal Up Your Home

    This step is very important, even if the raccoon is only visiting your yard. The more a raccoon spends time around a home, the more likely it will be to try to find a way in. One of the best ways to prevent this from happening is to be sure that your home is sealed up. To begin this process, the first step is to inspect your home. Check every part of your home, from the attic to the basement, looking for any problem areas. If you see any holes or cracks that could allow raccoon access, your best bet is to repair that area as soon as possible. Repairs can be done using a wide variety of materials, such as aluminum sheeting, all-weather sealant, and treated lumber. Be sure to hire a professional to perform any services that might be above your skill level, as this is a great investment to keep critters out.

    Lock Up the Trash

    One of the main things that draw a raccoon is access to food. This is particularly the case when there are humans that the raccoon is living around. Not only do humans throw out many edible things that raccoons love to eat, but they also leave their trash unsecured many times. One of the best ways to discourage raccoons from coming back to your property is to keep your trash secured at all times. There are many ways to do this, some of which can be done DIY for cheap, or some nice options from the store. Another related method to keep raccoons away is to not throw out table scraps. If a raccoon does not get these scraps, it will just encourage another nuisance animal to come to get them instead.

    Clean Your Yard

    While many people might find yard chores to be very annoying, they are one of the best ways to discourage raccoons from coming back to your property. There are a couple of big reasons that this is important to do. First, raccoons use cluttered yards to find shelter for themselves. Second, they use cluttered yards to find prey animals that hide in the shelter of the debris. Getting your yard nice and neat kills two birds with one stone. One of the best first steps you can take is to simply mow your grass and weeds. Short grass and weeds are one of the best ways to discourage prey animals (potential food for raccoons) from coming onto your property. Another great step is to clean up any old leaves, piles of brush, or any other debris. This will perform the same purpose, keeping raccoons from coming back all the time.

    Hire a Pro

    A final option that you have is to hire a professional wildlife removal company. These companies not only remove raccoons, but they can also perform services that will discourage or prevent raccoons from coming onto a property. This can be a great investment, particularly if you have tried many different things and none of them seem to work. While there may be more money spent initially for this prevention tip, it could potentially save thousands by preventing any future infestations.

    Where Do Raccoons Live in the City?

    Urban areas are filled with people, traffic, and buildings. It seems like there is no room for Nature in most urban areas, with the exception of trees and grass. That is why it is so surprising to many that there are animals all over large urban areas. From rats and mice to deer and raccoons, there are so many different critters that are found throughout America’s big cities. Continue reading to learn where raccoons live in the city.

    What a Raccoon Needs

    In order for a raccoon to survive, it really needs access to three different things: food, water, and shelter. If a raccoon can find these three things, wherever it is living, it will be able to survive. It really is not worth mentioning the water part, as urban areas provide many places for raccoons to find water. Urban areas also provide plenty of food opportunities for raccoons. Since raccoons are arguably one of the greatest adaptive opportunists of all time, it is no surprise that they feel right at home in virtually any environment. Urban areas have all kinds of food that can be found, especially around restaurants and individual homes. Dumpsters and food scraps are the main source of food for most raccoons in urban areas. In addition, they will eat insects, small mammals, and many other living and dead animals.

    The second important thing that a raccoon needs is shelter. If a raccoon is not able to find shelter, particularly during the colder months, it likely will not survive. This is especially the case when the local climate has a lot of precipitation or very rapid temperature swings. Luckily for raccoons, they can find shelter in almost any environment. Urban areas provide these critters with all sorts of options, such as homes, businesses, parks, or even a stand of trees. As long as the raccoon can get out of the elements once in a while they will be good to go.


    One of the most common places for raccoons to live in an urban area is a park. These natural refuges in the middle of the city can be enjoyed by people wishing to see some of Nature. They are also used by raccoons as a place to live. Many times, raccoons will live in the trees in a park, and many other times there is some other den-like structure that they can use around a park. During the day, the raccoon will usually stay in its den or tree, waiting for the night. Once nightfall comes, the raccoon feels less worried about people and also begins to hunt for food.


    In many urban and suburban areas, someone will have a yard that is suitable for a raccoon to live in. Most of the time these yards will contain a stand of trees, brush, and whatever other debris a raccoon could use as a shelter. In many cases, there is a shed or garage on the property that can be accessed by the raccoon. The great thing about a yard is that it not only supplies a place to live for the raccoon, but it also gives it many opportunities for food.


    For many raccoons, there is no better place to live in urban areas than a home. Raccoons make homes out of human homes quite frequently. This is especially the case if they are able to gain access to the attic. When raccoons live in a home, they are safe from the elements, from other animals, and have a great place to find food and raise their young.
