||These juveniles got stuck in a dumpster.
Customer Raccoon Email: David, I have, I now know, a family of racoons living in my house for months. They came in through soffits during the construction process. At one time in November and December they were attacking my garbage cans every night. I'd see three or four of them and try to scare them away but they would never go. I finally stopped putting garbage cans outside for a week and they stopped coming. Gargabe cans are back outside but they do not bother them anymore. However around the same time I started hearing noises through the walls. It comes and goes along with horrific odor. But now it is really serious. I need them out. I am afraid they are going to come into my house. I have small children and am frightened. Please let me know who to contact. I live on Long Island, NY. Thank You, Christine

The raccoon (Procyon lotor), is a common urban animal, and native to North America. Raccoons are easy to recognize, with a black mask and ringed tail, as seen in the above photo.
Raccoons tend to weigh between 10-20 pounds as adults, and live an average of 5 years. They are mostly nocturnal, and are omnivores, and will often eat pet food or garbage. They have
become very acclimated to living in cities and urban areas. They are very strong, excellent climbers, very intelligent, and they are very skilled with their hands, which causes them to
commonly break into homes and attics, where they cause considerable damage, and they also destroy other property, and thus raccoons
are considered pest animals by many people, which is why I remove them. If you want to learn more, please read my How To Get Rid of Raccoons page.
