How To Stop Racoons from Taking Over Your House
Behavior, Diet & Habits
Raccoons live just about everywhere, from California all the way to the East Coast. These animals cause numerous problems not only to people, but to the environment as well. They live in hollow logs, under porches, attics and have even been found living In garages and in farm machinery. Usually in winter, Animal Control gets a lot of calls for Raccoons in people's homes. (Mainly being found in attics). Animal control will hopefully find these animals and safely remove them far from your home. Once removed and released the Raccoon has been known to find their way back to its "home". That's why Animal Control has been known to release them far enough away so they cannot return. Raccoons are very curious. They get into trash cans, can turn on water spickets, and can even open doors. Most of their mischief is due in search of food. These animals are Nocturnal. (Sleeping in day, and awake at night.) While you are sleeping, they are out getting into almost everything. These animals are known for completely tearing up lawns in search for grub worms. This is a favorite item on its menu. Just one Raccoon can destroy an entire yard in one night.
Raccoons are very determined when it comes to food and will do anything to get it. Another important part of these animals is that they carry diseases. One, a very common one: Rabies, once infected this animal can be extremely aggressive, foam at the mouth and look very unpleasant. The Raccoons feces (poop) can carry what is called Roundworm, (Baylisascaris procyonis) which if touched by a human can be sometimes deadly. The Roundworm is a parasite that can live in the intestine and can travel through the body infecting different organs. Some cases have led to death. Raccoons are amazing climbers and swimmers. Climbing is a major part or a raccoon's lifestyle, their feet and tail were perfectly designed for that purpose. The tail used for balancing and the feet designed for clinging and hanging. Raccoons can climb up and down, left and right, forward and even climb down backwards! A Raccoon in the wild can live anywhere from 5-12 years in the wild, andin captivity up to 20 years! Their weight runs anywhere from 12-20 lbs, the largest on record was 60lbs! These fuzzy critters can teach us so much, not only about them, but how we as people can care for them and their environment.

Should I Feed a Baby Skunk I Found?
Beaver is primarily a nocturnal and semi-aquatic rodent. It belongs to the genus Castor and is presently represented by two species commonly known as the North American Beaver and the European Beaver. They are known for building dams, canals and lodges. They are the second largest rodents known all over the world. They live in colonies and make dams which are deep in water and protect them from the predators. The population of the North American beaver has declined rapidly because of excessive hunting. They are killed for fur and the glands are used as a source of medicine and perfumes. They are known for their natural trait of making dams in the ponds in which they live. They have very sharp and powerful front teeth which are used for cutting trees for building their homes as well as for feeding. They are known for their alarm signals. When frightened the beaver dives rapidly and slaps water with its broad tail. This sound is audible from large distances both above and below water. This behaviour acts as a warning signal for other beaver present inside water. Once warned by the alarm call the other beavers dive into water and do not reemerge for some time. They walk slowly on land but are effective swimmers and can remain under water for about 15 minutes.
Both the species are not genetically compatible. North American beavers have 40 chromosomes while the European beavers possess 48 chromosomes. North American beavers are also known as Canadian beavers. They feed on water lily. Beavers are common hosts of Giardia lamblia which causes giardiasis. The beaver testicles and castoreum, a bitter secretion present in the castor glands of male or female beaver is used commercially for making medicine. Castoreum is also used in perfume preparation. They are national animals of Canada. They have entered the category of endangered because of habitat destruction and mass killing.

Raccoons in Your Home
It seems rather obvious why you would not want a raccoon sharing your home, but just in case you need convincing, here are a few reasons why they do not make ideal house guests. First, they can be very destructive. They want food and shelter and will do what it takes to get it. They can rip holes in your roof, tear up screens, rip up your duct work and destroy your insulation. They can break into food containers, even when they are sealed. A bigger problem comes from the urine and feces that they leave behind. Raccoon droppings often contain roundworms which can be transferred to humans and pets. They can also carry diseases, fleas and ticks. While it is true that there is a risk of rabies, it is a very small risk. In fact, there has only been one documented case in the United States where a raccoon infected a human.
Raccoons are very good at breaking through any defenses you set up, so you might have to try a few of these things before you can get raccoons to stay away from your home.
