Raccoons can cause an enormous amount of damage to any residence or business. Raccoons also can present health concerns to people and pets when sharing their living space. Fortunately you don't have to live with them. Cayuga Creek Nuisance Wildlife Removal has been safely removing and controlling raccoons in the greater buffalo area since 2004. We know raccoons, where raccoons live, what they eat, and how they travel. If raccoons have taken up residence in your attic, garage, or house give us a call.
Raccoons are a very common nuisance species. These masked bandits generally weigh between 12 and 35 pounds, with a body length of 24 to 38 inches including a 10 inch tail.
Raccoons are found throughout New York State and in some urban areas can reach densities of nearly 100 per square mile. In rural areas 30-40 per square mile is common. Raccoons are highly adaptable and can den in attics, chimneys, and soffits etc. Females may den together, and males usually den by themselves. Raccoons are generally not territorial but will fight over common food sources.
Signs of raccoon presence:
Visual, although nocturnal raccoons are seen during the day, most commonly in the spring and early summer, when females are nursing.
Sounds: raccoons are very vocal and can emit sounds ranging from a growl to a grunt. Young raccoons are often mistaken for birds because of the chirp like sounds they make.
Tracks: raccoon tracks resemble small hands, the front foot is is approx 2 inches long with the back feet being 3 to 4 inches in lenght. (see picture to right)
Building damage: raccoons can leave black smudges on walls and downspouts, they also are very capable of tearing off siding, bending gutters, damaging soffits, and commonly soil insulation with feces.
Raccoons, commonly use chimneys and attics as denning sites, and places to raise their litters. Mother raccoons can be extremely protective of their young and will fight to protect them.
