Raccoons are highly adaptable animals making them well suited for urban environments. Adults commonly reach 2.5 feet in length and weigh up to 25 lbs. Raccoon infestations include females tearing into attics, roofs, chimney chases or crawl spaces to have their litters. Litters of 3-7 “kits” are born in the early spring (April-May). Kits remain with the mother up to one year. During this time mother raccoons are very protective of their young.

Raccoon nesting habits are destructive to insulation, siding, roofing or wherever they choose to nest. Raccoons can destroy lawns, especially newly placed sod, in search of grubs. They are also voracious feeders of fish (koi or goldfish) in ponds. Raccoons will establish latrines. Raccoons are carriers of certain diseases; the most common in the PNW being raccoon roundworm making raccoon removal especially important.
