In urban areas there can be as many as 100 raccoons per square kilometer. The raccoon’s hand-like paws allow it to gain access to homes and other structures in search of dens and food. Raccoons commonly den in chimneys, attics, garages, and under decks or additions.

Raccoon Related Health Concerns
Thankfully raccoons rarely transmit diseases to people and their pets but the few they do are very serious:

- Canine roundworm is passed from dogs to raccoons and back again.
- Fleas, lice, and ticks.
