Females raccoons go into a 63 day gestation period followed by the birth of six to three baby raccoons. The new raccoon families are very social and tend to be fairly close and remain together for more or less a year.

Raccoons are naturally quiet animals but can be noisy at times. You can hear their high pitch squeals, growls, and notice some aggression when threatened. Baby Raccoons sound like birds very often and it is very common for people to mistake their noises when these noises come from roofs, attics, chimneys, walls, crawlspaces or other parts of a dwelling/structure they intrude or invade.

Although raccoons are nocturnal and rarely seen during the day, you may see the females raccoons during the spring taking breaks from their litters to rest and search for food as the feel the need to be alert during the night in order to protect the baby raccoons from adults and other predators which may pray on the young.

Raccoon Nuisance Concerns

One of the most common wild life nuisance animals is the raccoon. The lack of available shelter caused by our constant structural building and constant encounter with us humans has forced them to adapt. They have learned to eat from our garbage and trash cans, dumpsters which are excellent sources of food and that our homes and places of business can be very convenient for shelter and make a great habitat.

A mother Raccoon will often find or create a form of intrusion (access or entry point) in roofs gaining access to the attic where they feel its safe. In almost every case, raccoons will make a mess, by defecating (leave raccoon poop and urine) and damages to the structure. They are smart and strong animals which often tear off insulation gnaw and chew on wooden framing, rip off air ducts, tear insulation cables, wires, etc. resulting in hundreds of dollars worth of damages and repairs to landlords.

Raccoon Diseases

The most common disease raccoons are known for is rabies, which can be potentially fatal. Raccoons can also be a carrier of canine distemper, which can kill your pet dog. Their feces is known to contain raccoon round worm (Baylisascaris) which is a parasite which resides in the small intestine of the raccoon and continues to grow and reproduce in the raccoons droppings. It affects humans by causing infections through the ingestion of eggs. Children are especially vulnerable because of their habit of putting objects in their mouth and they are often attracted to objects on the ground.

Once inside our stomachs, larvae quickly move to the nervous tissue, especially the brain and eyes. Even though there have been few reported human cases of raccoon roundworm infections, it is a difficult disease to diagnose and is probably underreported.

Infections in the nervous system by raccoon roundworm may appear as soon as two to four weeks after ingestion of eggs. All symptoms range from mild neurological signs to more severe paralysis, coma, blindness, and death. How people are affected by infections is still poorly understood, but it appears the greater number of eggs ingested results in more severe infections.

Diagnosing Raccoon round worm infections is very difficult unless a person exhibits symptoms. Once an infection becomes advanced, current treatments are usually ineffective. Because a "cure" does not exist for this disease, prevention is the most effective means of controlling the disease.

Woodchucks/Groundhogs are great diggers. They are capable of excavating tunnels and burrows underground where they live, raise and protect their young. A woodchuck's burrow can have multiple entrances and can reach about 50 feet of tunneling. In this same burrow they hibernate all winter. They awake and begin their normal active lives during spring and shortly look for a mate. Woodchucks are mainly active during the day and return to their burrows after sundown.

Wood Chucks are considered Agricultural pests since they eat all crops and vegetation. However it is their burrowing habits, which often cause bigger problems. In barns, horses often break their legs by falling into woodchuck burrows. The burrowing can be a bigger problem when the digging is near a home, a deck or next to a structural foundation. The removal and loosening of the soil can undermine and weaken the foundation and what it supports.

The most effective method to get rid of Woodchuck/Groundhogs is by humanely trapping and removing them from the property. Body and lethal body gripping traps can be effective as well , but again they are lethal.
