Raccoons, Part I
Raccoons have long been a problem in Minnesota for homeowners. With urban areas sprawling, raccoons are moving in. These creatures quickly lose their fear of humans when they find they can live a carefree lifestyle by digging in dumpsters up against homes or other buildings, making them more dangerous.
Since raccoons are nocturnal, or active at night, people seldom see them in their yards. The damage they can cause, however, is more evident. Raccoons often like to nest in chimneys. The raccoon will plug up a chimney with nest material and becoming a serious fire hazard. Raccoons will also cause damage to a home or business by trying to enter an attic or wall and thereby tearing off shingles and making holes in roofs and ripping holes in walls.
