An raccoon in the attic will use your attic insulation as a latrine and one of the first sign that an raccoon is living in the attic is areas where there is raccoon feces or poop gathered. A raccoon removal expert can remove the animal feces and contaminated material as well as trap the animal from the attic. 

Size and Weight: The adult raccoon is a medium-sized mammal and the largest of the Procyonidae family.  It averages 24 to 38 inches in length and can weigh between 14 to 23 lbs., or more, depending upon habitat and available food. The male raccoon, or boar, is slightly larger than the female, also referred to as sow. The young are called kits.

Physical Features: The mask of black fur that covers its eyes is its most characteristic and familiar feature. One hypothesis for the dark fur is that it may help reduce glare and enhance the nocturnal animal’s night vision. The species has grayish brown fur, almost 90% of which is dense underfur to insulate the animal against the cold. Five to eight light and dark rings alternate on its tail. Because its hind legs are longer than the front legs, a raccoon often appears hunched when they walk or run. The five toes on a raccoon’s front paws are extremely dexterous, functioning essentially as five little fingers which allow it to grasp and manipulate food it finds in the wild as well as a variety of other objects, including doorknobs, jars, and latches. A raccoon’s most heightened sense is its sense of touch. It has very sensitive front paws and this sensitivity increases underwater. When able, a raccoon will examine objects in water.

Raccoons or the Bandit-masked trash raider, can be found just about everywhere in the United States. These ubiquitous mammals are found in forests, marshes, prairies, and even in urban cities. Raccoons can adapt to just about any situation or living condition. With their dexterous front feet they can find and take advantage of a wide variety of habitats. Raccoons will eat just about anything, from crayfish in creeks to the cat or dog food on your back porch in.

Recently animal control in nuisance raccoon related calls have increased due to the encroachment of urban life into wildlife habitat. When a raccoon enters your home or business it can cause both structural damage and biological issues.

WARNING: Raccoon scat (poop) or droppings may contain the eggs of raccoon roundworm, Baylisascaris procyonis, which can be fatal to humans, so handling it is not advisable. If you do find a raccoon latrine in your attic or near your home, get professional help with the cleanup. If you clean it up yourself, you risk exposing yourself to the disease. Baylisascaris procyonis “is a well-known cause of visceral, ocular, and neural larva migrans in humans and other animals.”

Once you are aware of a raccoon in the attic or a raccoon in the chimney it is important to contact a local animal control or wildlife professional as soon as possible, Also it may be a good idea to contact your insurance agent and make them aware as well. Insurance companies sometimes help or cover the feces impacted insulation removal.

A raccoon’s diet can range from fruits and plants to mice, snakes, nuts, berries, wasps, frogs, squirrels and insects. They raid trashcans in forest campsites and even in suburbia. Their natural habitat consists of tree holes, raccoon under an outbuilding, and raccoon under a porch, a fallen log or even a house’s attic space.

Female coons have one to six cubs. The young often spend the first few months in the nesting area such as an attic. Raccoon that live in the attic can make a lot of noises in the ceiling or walls making it almost impossible to sleep because raccoon’s are nocturnal.

Raccoon’s tend to gorge themselves in spring and summer to store up body fat; they spend much of the winter in the living area. There are six other species of raccoons.

Trapping the raccoon in the attic is the first step, raccoon in the eaves or the raccoon in the chimney.
The raccoon feces left behind in the attic space and the holes the raccoon use as entry points need to be addressed. Exclusion and attic restoration are very important to prevent future raccoon infestation occurrences.
