Raccoons carry a variety of parasites and diseases. Disease is the biggest concern with raccoons. Raccoons are not pets, they are wild animals and should be treated as such. The majority of these are not dangerous to people but some are deadly. Rabies and distemper will kill raccoons. The risk of rabies is small in comparison but still should not be taken lightly. When populations become too dense, epizootic outbreaks can be a problem for people with unvaccinated pets.
Baylisascaris, also known as raccoon roundworm can be deadly in humans and dogs. Dogs become infected by eating or rolling in raccoon feces. As Professional Wildlife Trappers, we are at risk by transporting raccoons and handling untreated cages and trapping equipment. Incubation period is 1-4 weeks. Symptoms can include: Nausea, lack of attention to people and surroundings, tiredness, liver enlargement, loss of coordination, loss of muscle control, blindness and coma.
Besides rabies and parasites, raccoons can carry mites, fleas and ticks.
Raccoons are found throughout Florida and are also one of the most intelligent. Adult raccoons are 2-3 feet long and weigh 10-30 pounds. Raccoons are nocturnal and are active during the evening and overnight hours. They are adaptable so they can be seen during the day. Single raccoons will have a home range of 1-3 square miles. Although it’s not common, foraging up to 18 miles has been documented. The males are usually more territorial than the females. Raccoons eat a variety of food and are not picky. Food sources include: fruits, acorns, seeds, bird and turtle eggs, fish, frogs, insects, dog food, cat food, dead animals and just about anything in your garbage can.
Females will have an average of four dens and will move from den to den. They live in hollowed trees, under decks, sheds, crawl spaces sewer drains, burrows and of course attics. Females will have one litter a year with 3-5 pups. The young are weaned at 10-12 weeks old and will stay with mother up to 10 months old.
There are few natural enemies for Raccoons. Bobcats, dogs, coyotes, large owls and alligators are the predators here in Florida. Some would say that automobiles (road kill) could also be considered a predator.
