Raccoons are one of the most commonly dealt with nuisance animals. A mother raccoon will often tear a hole in a roof to access an attic, where they will make a mess and a lot of noise. Once inside an attic, they tear off insulation, rip open ducts, tear insulation off pipes and destroy an attic. They will search for food, and tip over trash cans, raiding dumpsters, and stealing pet food. They carry a number of parasites and diseases that can affect people or pets. They are very protective of their young and will tear apart a roof if one of her youngsters is trapped inside, Raccoons seek shelter under porches or decks and are only dangerous when provoked, trapped or rabid.
