Raccoon Trapping & Removal
Raccoons In Michigan
Between March and June, baby raccoons are born. The average litter size is two to four, and they are referred to as a kit. The babies (kits) stay huddled and in hiding in their den until they are approximately 12 months old when they join their mothers, go out to explore and learn to live and hunt in the wild.
Raccoons often referred to as “little bandits” are furry mammals. They have a bushy tail with dark colored rings. Their fur color can range from brown, black, gray, and various shades of red. Full Grown raccoons are between 16-28 inches long and weight between 8-20 pounds. It is never advised to go near a raccoon. They are extremely susceptible to rabies, feline distemper, and leptospirosis, which can be extremely dangerous and life-threatening to humans. They can also carry salmonella and roundworm.
They make their dens under decks, in sheds, barns and hollow trees and logs. At times they will venture into an attic to find comfort and warmth. They prefer wooded areas near the water. However, they are adaptable to living in urban and suburban areas. They eat almost anything from plants to fruit, seeds, insects, fish, frogs to even animals.
