Raccoons are among the most problematic of all nuisance wild animal species. They eat a wide range of food and will take advantage of accessible trash whenever possible. Raccoons do not hibernate, but they do live in dens and become less active during the colder months of the year.
Raccoons are also a major host of rabies in the U.S., especially here in Massachusetts where their populations are on the rise again. Raccoon feces can contain dangerous sometimes deadly organisms like raccoon roundworm.
Common Sources of Raccoon Activity
The combination of food and potential shelter, often bring problem raccoons dangerously close to people and domestic animals. Homes and buildings with chimneys, attics, porches, sheds, basements and other areas can provide a perfect winter den for Raccoons. These animals are very powerful with strong hands and fingers. Problem raccoons often cause significant damage when they enter a structure.
Raccoon damage often continues once the animal gets inside. Soiled insulation along with damaged vents and heating and cooling equipment are common areas that raccoons can damage once inside.
If a raccoon has entered a home or building, it should be addressed right away. This will minimize the risk of any human-wildlife conflict. Raccoons can cause serious damage around homes and buildings, especially when they try to enter through soffits, attics or chimneys.
Raccoon Prevention Tips
Secure your garbage and compost- Raccoons will happily raid garbage cans and compost heaps. Make sure garbage is kept in tightly closed containers.
Take out trash on the morning of pick-up instead of the night before. Keep compost in secure vented containers to prevent access to this attractive food source. These practices prevent artificial feeding of raccoons and also makes your area less attractive to them.
Do not feed or try to approach raccoons. Raccoons are wild animals and feeding, whether directly or indirectly, may cause them to lose their fear of people.
If raccoons become (used to people) they may approach humans expecting food or attention. This is a dangerous situation that often leads to human-wildlife conflict.
Feed Pets Indoors
Do not put pet food outdoors under any circumstances. Pet food left outdoors inadvertently feeds a variety of wildlife including raccoons.
Attracting animals to frequent a particular area can cause the spread of disease from raccoons to other wildlife and domestic animals or pets.

Preventing Conflicts with Skunks

How To Avoid Getting Sprayed By A Skunk
Remain calm when encountering a skunk Should you encounter a skunk, speak softly and move away in order to give it room to leave. Once you back away, the skunk will no longer feel threatened and will move off.
Remove Food Sources That Attract Skunks
Secure your garbage! Skunks will raid open trash materials and compost piles. Secure your garbage in tough plastic containers with tight fitting lids and keep in secure buildings when possible.
