Can Raccoons See During The Day

Raccoons can very well see during the day and they are completely capable of doing so normally without any problem. The raccoon is classified as a nocturnal animal which means that raccoons are active during the night and are more inactive during the day. In nature, the raccoon stays in the hollows of trees and rests until nightfall. Precaution is needed when you see a raccoon walking out in the daytime as it may have rabies.

Raccoons are carnivores as well as herbivores and this dictates what it eats on a normal basis. It usually eats a wide range of berries, vegetables, and crawfish and well as foul and its eggs. Raccoons are often out during the night, and this is where their vision is an advantage. Raccoons during the day are completely normal, but as earlier mentioned may have rabies.

Raccoons are very adapted to urban life and are known to be very mischievous and problematic wildlife animals. Depending on the season, they may be more active than other months. During the summer, you will hear more about raccoons breaking into manmade structures such as sheds, attics, underneath decks, chimneys, and even in abandoned cars in some instances. The raccoon takes inspiration from its behavior in the wild where the raccoon often occupies already-made structures by other wildlife animals.

Raccoons in particular have a liking to attic spaces. It is due to the fact that space provides a safe space for the raccoon. Another reason is that attics are relatively easy to breach by pushing in the soffit or simply ripping it off. The attic is also a very popular space to raise and give birth to raccoon young. The attic becomes a cesspool of harmful bacteria all of which have a negative effect on the occupants living in the property. Raccoons deposit their feces and their urine in the insulation material. Immediate removal of the raccoons and the raccoon young are required in order to sanitize and disinfect the space. Additionally, re-installation is required as well as raccoons severely contribute to the deterioration of the insulation material installed in the attic space.

The activity can be heard during the nighttime in the form of squeals, scratches, and thumping. All of these sounds can give a clue to what animal is inhabiting the space. Suspicions of any wildlife animal are encouraged as the situation can worsen with every passing day. The entry-point created by the raccoon can also invite other animals that are looking for shelter. It is important that you have the raccoons removed and that you have the entry-point secured and sealed as soon as possible.
