The raccoon (Procyon lotor), sometimes spelled as racoon and also known as the common raccoon, North American raccoon is a medium-sized mammal native to North America. As a result of escapes and deliberate introductions in the mid-20th century, raccoons are now also distributed across the European mainland, the Caucasus region and Japan. Their original habitats are mixed forests, but due to their adaptability they have extended their range to mountainous areas, coastal marshes and even urban areas, where some homeowners consider them pests.
With a body length of 41 to 72 cm and a weight of 8–20 lbs., the raccoon is the largest procyonid. Their dense underfur, which insulates against cold weather, accounts for almost 90% of the raccoon's grayish coat. Two of its most distinctive features are its extremely dexterous front paws and its facial mask. These are also themes in the mythology of several Native American tribes. Raccoons are also noted for their intelligence. Studies have shown that they are able to remember the solution to tasks up to three years later. Raccoons, omnivorous and usually nocturnal, have diets consisting of about 40% invertebrates, 33% plant foods and 27% vertebrates. Captive raccoons sometimes douse their food before eating it, which is most likely a vacuum activity imitating foraging at shores.
Though previously thought to be solitary, there is now evidence that raccoons engage in gender-specific social behaviors. Related females often share a common area, while unrelated males live together in groups of up to four to maintain their positions against foreign males during the mating season and other potential invaders. Home range sizes vary anywhere from 7.4 acres for females in cities to 19.1 sq miles for males in prairies. After a gestation period of about 65 days, 2 to 5 young are born in spring. The kits are subsequently raised by their mother until dispersion in late fall. Although captive raccoons have been known to live for over 20 years, their average life expectancy in the wild is only 1.8 to 3.1 years. Hunting and traffic accidents are the two most common causes of death in many areas.
So, if you suspect raccoons in the attic, or have raccoons constantly raiding your trash, cans you should definitely call the raccoon control technicians at Raccoon Control Solutions at (703) 881-3170.
