Raccoons in Winston-Salem, NC, are often found near water, as aquatic life and abundant insects offer reliable food sources. Residential areas also provide the pests with opportunities to feed and build their dens in backyard sheds or attics. Norway rats are common locally, which can draw raccoons into yards as well. Both of these pests aren't picky eaters, feeding on fruit, insects, trash, and, in the case of raccoons, rodents. Once either of these animals has found a location of interest, they tend to stick around. This can be problematic for Winston-Salem residents, since the pests create noise and sanitation issues in homes.
