Understanding Your Pest: What to Know About Raccoons

Raccoons tend to vary in weight, from 6-20 pounds for a female and 15-27 pounds for a male. Raccoons are a nocturnal animal, meaning they become active shortly after sunset until shortly before sunrise and spend their days sleeping. The raccoon breeding season is February through March, with them giving birth approximately 2-2½ months later. On average, there are about 2-5 pups per raccoon litter. When it’s not the mating season, raccoons tend to live in small groups of 1-3 at a time. They typically find refuge under porches, stoops, decks, chimneys, and sometimes even inside attics.
