Despite appearances, raccoons can cause major damage to your home and property. Unlike other rodents, raccoons have the ability to open doors and access areas of your home other pests can't. Raccoons are opportunistic omnivores and will eat anything from garbage to insects. If they manage to find access into your home, they will target areas such as your kitchen and pantry, destroying property in the process. Most property damage caused by raccoons is done in search of food. They have been known to open unlocked doors and climb into areas in roofs to take refuge in attic spaces.

Common Diseases Raccoons Carry

Be aware of the invisible threat raccoons carry

Raccoons are known to host a multitude of deadly infectious diseases. Including the following:

  • Rabies - A preventable viral disease of mammals most often transmitted through the bite of a rabid animal. The vast majority of rabies cases reported to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) each year occur in wild animals like raccoons, skunks, bats, and foxes.
  • Lyme Disease - Also known as Lyme borreliosis, is an infectious disease caused by a bacterium named Borrelia spread by ticks. The most common sign of infection is an expanding area of redness on the skin, known as erythema migrans, that appears at the site of the tick bite about a week after it occurred.
  • Typhus - Also known as typhus fever, is a group of infectious diseases that include epidemic typhus, scrubtyphus and murine typhus. Common symptoms include fever, headache, and a rash. Typically these begin one to two weeks after exposure. The diseases are caused by specific types of bacterial infection.
