Why Are Raccoons So Active in the Spring

Why Are Raccoons So Active in the Spring?

Raccoons are active in almost all seasons, they do sometimes hibernate in short bursts but they tend to prefer to remain active in the winter which is why they want to break into your attic, because it’s warm and lets them sleep without hibernating. After the winter ends the raccoons begin their mating game. They run around finding mates and fighting each other of said mates, the violence can get very intense and the raccoons will become very aggressive. They will eventually find multiple mates and impregnate them. They will also travel around finding other children from different fathers and kill them. This whole process is very intense and extreme. The raccoons can be frightening but they are not interested in you, they are busy trying to find mates. If you want to get rid of the raccoons in your home, contact Raccoon Removal Toronto  to solve your raccoon problem!

If you have fighting raccoons on your property or worse, in your attic then you will need to take some precautions. Normally you could send them off by cutting off their food source but it may not be so easy this time as they are focused on finding a safe place for their babies to be raised. You can lock up your garbage and make sure there is no food left on your property but the reality is that it may not prevent them from coming to your home and causing a ruckus. 

A great way to handle raccoons in your attic is to call the professionals. At Raccoon Control we have technicians that are highly trained and capable of handling any wildlife or pest situation. They can do an inspection for the presence of babies and remove them while also sealing up possible places the raccoon and other raccoons could enter, this is called exclusion. At the main entrance they will attach a one-way door that will allow the animal to leave the attic but prevent it from getting back in. With their babies safe and outside they will take them and move on to a new property.
