Raccoons roam Triad neighborhoods looking for a place to rest and something to eat. Open trash cans and outdoor pet food bowls encourage a raccoon to nest nearby. As a result, North Carolina residents who feed pests either directly or by accident may find these animals denning under their porches or decks.
Raccoons have a permanent mask and banded tail. They would be cute if they weren’t so destructive. They will do what they can to get into parts of your house they see fit to sleep and give birth to pups. If they must rip, tear, or break something to get to that spot, they will. Raccoons make lots of noises, like whimpers, growls, and screams. They leave feces and urine nearby their shelter.
