We are Ohio's top experts in wildlife and raccoon control. We are not a typical Akron raccoon control or pest control company. We don't treat wild animals like insects, because they are not! You can't just use poison to get rid of them. You also can't just set a few traps on the ground and call it good. Each situation is unique. And remember, if you have raccoons living in your house, it is almost certainly a female with a litter of young inside. These juveniles must be removed by hand, or they will starve to death and die. And after they are gone, the entry holes into the house must be sealed with professional repairs. Unlike most Akron pest control, we focus on complete and permanent solutions, by following these steps:
- Inspect the entire house, ground to roof, and the attic
- Seal shut all entry areas with professional grade steel
- If in attic, we remove the baby raccoons by hand
- Technical and human raccoon trapping appropriate to situation
- When necessary, we clean raccoon droppings and replace insulation
Akron Raccoon Control Tip: An Introduction To Raccoons And Their Nature
There are few pest animals that are as adaptable as the raccoon, and while many animal species have seen a reduction in numbers as the human population has spread and increased in the United States, the raccoon population has actually thrived. One of the key reasons here is that they are able to adapt to be able to live alongside people, and to find the areas which will allow them to scavenge for food without coming into direct contact with people, which carries a greater risk for them.
The raccoon is quite an easy animal to identify, as it has a very distinctive black and white face where the black fur surrounds the eyes of the animal in a ‘robber's mask'. When fully grown they will usually be between two and four feet in length, and will weigh between ten and thirty pounds, depending on the animal's habitat. The raccoon also has a distinctive tail which will usually have black and white stripes.
One of the most interesting aspects of the raccoon's biology is found in the front paws, which have a thick layer of skin that softens up quickly when dampened, and raccoons use these front paws to examine food, and for any task requiring a particular level of dexterity. Because these front paws are on slightly shorter legs, it does mean that the raccoons are not particularly quick, or especially strong swimmers, but they are competent in both of these areas.
Mating season for the raccoons is usually in the early spring, depending on the conditions and temperatures in their habitat, with the female giving birth to a litter of between two and five kits around two months later. The young raccoons are very vulnerable at birth, being both deaf and blind, but will develop gradually, and will usually be starting to try solid food after around six weeks. It can take up to four months for the kits to be fully weaned, and the young will usually leave their mother in the fall to find their own territory. Life expectancy for most raccoons can range from 18 months to 3 years, but there are examples of raccoons growing to a much older age.
In the wild, raccoons will usually prefer wooded areas for their habitats, where they will be able to find a range of food sources, although they will usually avoid the open plains which make them feel vulnerable and offer little cover. However, over the recent centuries they have adapted well to urban and suburban areas, and have also managed to thrive in these areas too.
The raccoon has a very adaptable digestive system which allows it to use a range of different food sources, and it is generally omnivorous, combining vegetable matter and small animals in its diet. Where possible, the raccoon can show a preference for fruits and nuts when they are in season, although in the spring before these start to become more widespread, they will also eat a greater proportion of insects and worms. They will tend to have a greater calorie intake in the fall, as they build up fat stores for the winter.
Raccoons are generally nocturnal animals, that will tend to come out as night falls, when they can explore with less of a threat, but it is also true that they can be adaptable in this regard if greater food sources are available during daytime. They are also well known for dousing, where raccoons will dip their food in water and rotate it in their paws, with scientists believing the extra sensitive paws allow them to fully examine their food.
