Happy Baby Raccoon Season from all of us at Fur Finder LLC

May 16, 2019

Motivated by food and love to take long daily naps? Then, you can relate to the clever raccoon bandits that frequent residential attics, chimneys, and crawl spaces. Their excellent climbing skills and dexterous hands give them easy access to your home.
The female raccoons that have been hiding away for the winter give birth to one to six babies most prominently in the months of April and May. These new mothers are scavenging for garbage or pet food to provide their babies.
If these mothers happen to have settled down in your chimney or attic, it is essential to let professionals, such as Fur Finder, handle the situation for several reasons. The mothers are very protective of their babies for their first year of life. They are likely carrying several diseases and parasites transferable to humans. While inside the attic they may tear up insulation for nesting materials or chew on wires creating a serious fire hazard. The accumulation of urine and feces will smell and can possibly leak through your ceiling.
