Raccoon Control in Orlando Florida

Raccoon Info: Raccoons are easy to recognize with their distinctive black mask and ringed tail. The are very common in Orlando, particularly in more urban areas. They are well adapted for survival in cities. They are excellent climbers, and they have very nimble hands. They are also strong, and they often explore, tearing new areas open in search of food and shelter. They like to den in trees, but they love to den in attics. A mother raccoon is very protective of its litter of 3-5 young, usually born in the spring time. Like many mammals, they are primarily nocturnal, though some people spot them during the day, often when in search of food. They are omnivores, and will eat almost anything they can get those crafty hands on. The raccoons in Florida are smaller than average, but I've caught them up to 20 pounds here.

Nuisance concerns: Raccoons are probably the most commonly dealt with nuisance animal in Florida. They have adapted to living with humans. They have learned that garbage cans and dumpsters are excellent sources of food, and that houses are excellent habitat. A mother raccoon will often tear a hole in a roof to access an attic, where they will make quite a mess and a lot of noise. Click here if you have baby raccoons in the attic. They can cause significant damage in an attic, both by contamination from their waste or by structural damage to insulation, beams, or even by chewing on wires. They will search hard for food, and are fond of tipping over trash cans, raiding dumpsters, and stealing pet food. They will often break into a screened-in porch to get pet food. If there's food or shelter to be had, raccoons will break into your house. At times, they'll crawl under houses and up the walls, and sometimes baby raccoons are in the walls or ceiling They carry a number of parasites and diseases that can affect people or pets. They are the #1 carrier of rabies, a potentially fatal disease. They also carry canine distemper, which can kill your dog. Their feces may contain raccoon roundworm, the spores of which humans can breath in and become seriously infected by, so it is important to capture raccoons using human habitat.
