   Read on to learn more about Raccoons!

Breeding season is upon us and female Raccoons are looking for a place to have their babies. Unfortunately they prefer to have them in a attic or crawl space. This is common all over Los Angeles!

Here I would like to familiarise you with the Raccoon! There playful antics, and personality is something to share with children as they forage for grubbs and play in bird baths. But keep your distance from them, as the mother raccoon is extremely protective of her young!

A raccoon is an animal that prefers dim light or darkness. There eyes are adapted to low light conditions, and bright sunlight will hurt its eyes. A raccoon will actually hide its eyes if the sun comes out and is too bright. If you see a raccoon outside on a sunny day, dont go near it! It is not acting normally, and could be sick!

A raccoon is a medium sized animal found in North America. She gets as big as 50 pounds in some areas, and live as long as 12 years, although the average is 6 years. The female Raccoon can have Baby Raccoons after she is a year old, and has an average litter of 4 baby raccoons. She will have her babies in a hole in the ground, or a hollow tree, or in an attic of a home where she has been on the roof! Raccoons like to climb on roofs and play in trees like monkies. Most times they will climb tree branches to get on a roof, but sometimes they will climb a support pole, or a gutter down spout to get there.  Feeding raccoons can be fun to watch, but may not be such a good idea in the city. Neighbors may blame you for them having a raccoon in an attic. So, make sure before you feed raccooms that your neighbors are alright with it.


Raccoons in attics will poop and pee all over insulation, and require all insulation to be removed and disinfect, and deoderised. Costing thousands of dollars. We service All Cities of Los Angeles including Long Beach, Anaheim, Burbank, Hollywood and Beverly Hills.

Raccoons can get sick, and do carry paracites that you can pick up too. Fleas, ticks, and lice can get picked up from raccoons! Raccoon round worm is an intestinal paracite which raccoons can pass to people. Raccoon Roundworm spores are in the poop of a raccoon (we call them raccoon droppings)   These spores can be dried in the raccoon droppings, and blow with the wind when disturbed. It can got into your eye, or lungs, then incubate into a worm!

Pet Raccoons The idea of having a pet raccoon some look forward to realising. But the truth is, that raccoons are wild animals. They should be left in the wild. A sick or injured raccoon should be cared for by a rehabilitator with a license issued by the state. Raccoons need to be dewormed and have shots to protect from distemper and rabies.
