Raccoon Removal & Control in Maine
Have you been hearing scratching sounds in the walls or attic of your home or business in Maine? If so, you may have a raccoon problem!
Raccoons are common throughout North America. They are easy to recognize with their black facemask and black, brown, and white-ringed bushy tail. They have long, thick fur with a thin muzzle and pointed ears. Their feet are well adapted to climbing. They are large animals, weighing between 10 and 25 pounds. Raccoons, too, can transmit rabies. Raccoons den inside hollow trees or logs, rock crevices, deserted buildings, culverts, storm sewers, chimneys, attics, and crawl spaces. More than one den may be used. Raccoons can often become trapped in chimneys and other confined spaces, requiring trained professionals to remove the animal. If you think you may have a raccoon in your chimney, contact Critter Control today at 1-800-CRITTER.
Raccoons are mostly active at night, although they may be seen at dawn or dusk and sometimes even in the middle of the day. In northern climates the winter months are spent in the den, but they do not hibernate. They may become active during warm spells and often emerge in January or February to breed.
