Brinker Animal Removal: Experts that Know Raccoon Behavior

Unlike rodents, raccoons require a large opening to gain entrance into your home. With strong claws, raccoons can climb trees, tall fences, and the side of wooden homes. If a raccoon had its way, it would remain outdoors throughout the year. However, pregnant raccoons need to find secure shelters to deliver litters. The goal for mama raccoon is to nourish her babies until they grow large enough to handle whatever is thrown at them outdoors. Once raccoon babies reach maturity, the mother spends a little time teaching them the ropes. Adolescent raccoons learn how to gather food and discover ideal locations to sleep during the day.

Mother raccoons are highly protective of their offspring, which makes them dangerous for anyone who interacts with a mother raccoon. Most raccoons prefer the solitary lifestyle, although if food runs low, raccoons are known to venture out of a safe crawl space to search for food. Unlike mice and rats, raccoons look for temporary housing. By the end of spring, mama and her kids leave and return to their natural habitats.
