Raccoons are round, fuzzy creatures with bushy tails and a black mask of fur that covers their eye area. These animals may look like cute, cuddly bandits, but they can be quite fearsome when approached.聽
Raccoons are about as big as small dogs. They grow to about 23 to 37 inches (60 to 95 centimeters) and weigh 4 to 23 lbs. (1.8 to 10.4 kilograms), according to聽National Geographic.
Raccoons are found in North and Central America, Europe and Japan. They are very adaptable, so they live in a wide range of climates and habitats. They typically make homes, called dens, in trees or caves, though they will also make homes in barns, abandoned vehicles and other man-made locations, according to聽New Hampshire Public Television.
Though raccoons are more than happy to make human areas their homes, they can be vicious when approached by humans. Humans should be particuarlly cautious of approaching raccoons because they are common carriers of rabies, roundworms and leptospirosis, according to聽The Human Society. Most experts do not recommend having a raccoon as a pet.聽
Raccoons are not very social creatures. They are nocturnal and sleep during the day. During the winter, they tend to sleep more, but they do not hibernate in the traditional sense. They simply sleep while their bodies live off stored fat. They lose around 50 percent of their body weight during the winter, according to the University of Michigan’s聽Animal Diversity Web(ADW).聽
Though these animals look like the outlaws of the outdoors, raccoons are very clean creatures. They are known to wash their food in streams and even dig latrines in areas they frequent regularly.聽
As omnivores, raccoons eat vegetation and meat. The vegetation in their diet consists of cherries, apples, acorns, persimmons, berries, peaches, citrus fruits, plums, wild grapes, figs, watermelons, beech nuts, corn and walnuts. When it comes to meat, raccoons consume more invertebrates than vertebrates, according to the ADW. Some of the raccoon鈥檚 favorite animal treats are frogs, fish, crayfish, insects, rodents and bird eggs. When food is scarce, raccoons aren鈥檛 above scavenging human trash or eating roadkill.聽
Baby raccoons are called kits or cubs and are usually born in the early summer. Females have one to seven offspring after a gestation period of 60 to 73 days. As a group, a mother and her baby raccoons are called a nursery.
For the first two months of their lives, babies live in their den and are weened at 7 to 16 weeks. At 12 weeks, they will start to roam away from their mothers for whole nights at a time, according to the聽Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife. They become completely independent at 8 to 12 months of age. Raccoons live around 2 to 3 years in the wild.
Here is the taxonomy of the raccoon, according to Integrated Taxonomic Information System聽(ITIS).
Subkingdom: Bilateria 聽 聽 聽
Infrakingdom: Deuterostomia 聽 聽 聽
Infraphylum: Gnathostomata 聽 聽 聽
Superclass: Tetrapoda 聽 聽 聽
Species:聽Procyon聽cancrivorous聽(crab-eating raccoon), with four subspecies;聽Procyon lotor聽(common raccoon), with 22 subspecies; and聽Procyon pygmaeus聽(Cozumel raccoon or pygmy raccoon).
According to the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), the pygmy raccoon is critically endangered. The pygmy raccoon may have fewer than 250 mature individuals left in the wild, and the IUCN estimates that the total population size, including juveniles, is only 323 to 955. Other raccoon populations are not currently endangered.聽
Raccoons can run up to 15 mph (24 km/h) and can fall 35 to 40 feet (11 to 12 meters) without injury, according to the ADW.聽
Raccoons are considered one of the primary carriers of the rabies virus in the United States, though only one person has ever died from a raccoon to human transmission of the disease, according to the聽Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.聽
One theory is that the聽black mask around a raccoon鈥檚 eyes聽helps deflect glare and helps with night vision, according to PBS Nature.
In Wood County WV as like most states in our great nation squirrels
are abundant. Squirrels have learned to take up residence in the attics spaces,
in the eaves, gable vents and even chimneys. Squirrel Removal is only the first
step to the processes, once the culprit Wichita squirrel is evicted and
exclusion must be performed to ensure complete Squirrel control. Squirrel
Removal must be priority whether is bats squirrels, raccoons or rodents in your
attic The Wildlife Professionals can trap and remove them from your property.
Squirrel Removal by squirrel removal and squirrel control
professionals are the best way to assure complete success. Roofers just
closing up the openings only lead to more damage when the culprit squirrels
chew a fresh new hole into the attic space. Squirrel removal from the attic
must be completed before any repairs are done.
Squirrel love to chew and even chew on the electrical wiring
in your home, this can cause attic fires. When a squirrel is living in your
attic, walls or eaves they can create quite a noise factor, that it can be
difficult to get sleep due to the scratching noises in the wall or attic. A
Squirrel removal expert can remove this issue.
Once it is determined that you have a squirrel removal issue
it is important to call a animal control company (Preferably a Nuisance
Wildlife Removal Company). Squirrels are known carriers of rabies and a
variable of other diseases so you should never try to do it your self. Let a
professional that is trained take care of the conflict for you.
Bird feeders are great for watching birds that frequent
them, though rodents like squirrels and rats love to feed from them too. In a
lot of cases of squirrel infesting an attic a feeder are typically close
around. So if you do enjoy bird feeders make sure they are at least 100 feet
from the house this will help a bit.
Dead Squirrels or animals in the attic or walls are a
service that can be completed to remove the animal and s eliminate the odor
caused by the dead animal.
Squirrels are rodents and will cohabitate with other rodents
such as rats and mice. The openings the squirrel makes have been known to allow
other rodent and even bats and birds access.
