Raccoons mate in February through March, with a gestation period of 63 days. Averages of 2-6are born. The young remain with the female until fall and may den with her through the winter. The female will use the same denning site year afteryear. Raccoons are nocturnal.

You will hear the same noises in your chimney if your chimney is un-capped. You will see at least a 4” hole in your roof or you will see one of your roof vents damaged. You will have soffit panels that are bent or destroyed. You will see your lawn rolled up or it looks like a roto-tiller has been through your lawn

Raccoons can carry both canine and feline distemper. Distemper is a common disease and is usually fatal. Raccoons with distemper act tame or confused, and eventually lose coordination, become unconscious and die. Distemper cannot be transmitted to humans or immunized pets.


Raccoon RemovalEvery year Minnesota raccoons are tested positive for the rabies virus, This rabies virus is usually from another animal (bat, skunk, fox or coyote), the raccoon strain of rabies is working its way across the country and is currently documented in Michigan and Indiana but isn’t in Minnesota yet.

Raccoon roundworm infects most raccoons at some time in their lives. The roundworm rarely causes the raccoon any problems, but the animals pass large numbers of eggs to the environment through its feces. Eggs ingested by another animal may hatch and cause nerve damage. Cases of human infection have been documented, including two fatal cases caused by accidental infections from captive raccoons.
