They can be especially destructive in your attic, where they ruin insulation, make latrines, damage electrical wires and cause odors. Because of their susceptibility to rabies, problem raccoons cannot be relocated. However, some raccoon problems can be controlled without trapping. We can control and trap raccoons that are damaging your property.  To trap and remove raccoons in Greenwich, Stamford, New Canaan, Darien, Norwalk, Wilton, Weston, Westport, Fairfield, Easton, Newtown, Monroe, Trumbull, Stratford or Milford call Connecticut Wild Things LLC in Stamford, CT 203.602.3343 Norwalk, CT 203.854.4848 or Stratford, CT 203.375.1211

To deter raccoons from raiding garbage cans, several modifications can be made. Snaps can be attached to the lid and the handle can be secured to a stake driven into the ground. Placing cans in wooden bins or in the garage may also eliminate raccoon raiding problems.

Pet food should not be left outside where it is available to raccoons. Bird feeders should be placed away from trees or other structures that can be climbed by raccoons.

Raccoons can easily access roofs by climbing trees, downspouts, vines, electrical service wires or a trellis located near the house. Therefore, to prevent raccoons from entering house attic, roofs and chimneys should be well-maintained. Replace loose shingles so the do not live in your attic, repair any holes near the eaves of the roof so they do not live in attic and securely place a chimney cap over the chimney so they do not live in chimney. Limiting the access to the roof by trimming trees and shrubs may also be helpful.

The simplest and most effective, permanent solution to the problem of raccoons living in a chimney is to cap it. However, there may be young present, depending on the time of year. If the young are old enough to climb out, we can trap all the raccoons outside of the chimney then we can cap the chimney. Sometimes, a female raccoon can be encouraged to move her young to another location by the use of repellents, we can do this by applying our biological control agent and then monitor the activity, once the raccoons leave your chimney we can cap your chimney with an approved chimney cap.

E
lectric fences may help to keep raccoons out of gardens. The wires must be spaced close together and close to the ground in order to be effective.  We can rent temporary electric fences to you or we can install a permanent effective fence for repelling raccoons for your garden.  To install and service electric fences for raccoons in Greenwich, Stamford, New Canaan, Darien, Norwalk, Wilton, Weston, Westport, Fairfield, Easton, Newtown, Monroe, Trumbull, Stratford or Milford call Connecticut Wild Things LLC in Stamford, CT 203.602.3343 Norwalk, CT 203.854.4848 or Stratford, CT 203.375.1211

Raccoon Rabies: Since "raccoon rabies" reached Connecticut in March, 1991, thousands of raccoons have become infected. Other species, including dogs, cats, skunks, foxes, woodchucks and livestock, have also been infected. The following symptoms may indicate the presence of rabies, distemper or other diseases in raccoons or other mammals: unprovoked aggression, impaired movement, paralysis or lack of coordination, unusually friendly behavior and disorientation. Just because a nocturnal animal like the raccoon is active during daylight hours doesn’t necessarily mean that it is sick. Raccoons often adjust their feeding schedules, especially in the spring when rearing their young. Contact with any wild or stray animal should be avoided, especially if it is behaving abnormally.
Raccoons may also serve as host to a number of other disease pathogens which are transmissible to humans and domestic animals, including trichinosis, tuberculosis, round worm, infectious enteritis and coccidiosis.

They are common throughout Connecticut in Fairfield County Greenwich, Stamford, New Canaan, Darien, Norwalk, Wilton, Weston, Westport, Fairfield, Easton, Newtown, Monroe, Trumbull, Stratford and Milford.

Reproduction:

Females produce one litter per year, with an average of four cubs per litter then you have a family of raccoons in your attic.

History in Connecticut and Fairfield County:
Since the late 1800's, Connecticut’s expanding human population has probably benefited this opportunistic species of raccoon; concentrations of people provide easy access to such food sources as garbage, gardens and bird feeders and shelter like in my attic and in my chimney. Raccoons are now abundant in both urban and rural areas throughout Connecticut Fairfield County Greenwich, Stamford, New Canaan, Darien, Norwalk, Wilton, Weston, Westport, Fairfield, Easton, Newtown, Monroe, Trumbull, Stratford and Milford.

Interesting Facts:
Raccoons are most closely related to the dog (Canidae) and bear (Ursidae) families. They have keen senses of hearing, sight and touch, but taste and smell are less well developed. Raccoons have dexterous feet, are excellent climbers and can descend a tree head first or climb your house and enter your attic or chimney. They are extremely strong for their size.
Raccoons are primarily nocturnal but occasionally venture out in the daytime. In late fall and winter, raccoons may "den up" in my attic or my chimney during the coldest periods; however, this is not true hibernation, and they will wander out during warm spells. The den is most often in a chimney, but raccoons will also use attics, boats, old cars, buildings, wood piles, under shed, or under my deck.
Generally, raccoons are not social but some pairs and families do travel together in Connecticut Fairfield County Greenwich, Stamford, New Canaan, Darien, Norwalk, Wilton, Weston, Westport, Fairfield, Easton, Newtown, Monroe, Trumbull, Stratford and Milford.
The raccoon has been an economically important furbearer in Connecticut due to its abundance and pelt value. Raccoons are harvested each year during the regulated hunting and trapping seasons, providing recreation for many Connecticut sportsmen and helping to control local raccoon populations, but in Fairfield county Connecticut trapping is very limited and they are over abundant in Connecticut Fairfield County Greenwich, Stamford, New Canaan, Darien, Norwalk, Wilton, Weston, Westport, Fairfield, Easton, Newtown, Monroe, Trumbull, Stratford and Milford.
Raccoons, especially large populations, prey on birds and their nests. In Connecticut Fairfield County Greenwich, Stamford, New Canaan, Darien, Norwalk, Wilton, Weston, Westport, Fairfield, Easton, Newtown, Monroe, Trumbull, Stratford and Milford, they often raid bluebird boxes that are not protected with predator guards. They also are problematic for herons and egrets on offshore islands where repeated predation can cause abandonment of the entire colony.  To trap and remove raccoons in Greenwich, Stamford, New Canaan, Darien, Norwalk, Wilton, Weston, Westport, Fairfield, Easton, Newtown, Monroe, Trumbull, Stratford or Milford call Connecticut Wild Things LLC in Stamford, CT 203.602.3343 Norwalk, CT 203.854.4848 or Stratford, CT 203.375.1211.
