Raccoons are a native mammal to North America, and commonly found in Idaho.

They are known for their distinctive black and white facial markings. While they may look cute and harmless, raccoons can be dangerous if they feel threatened or provoked. These critters are highly adaptive to both rural & urban environments. You might find raccoons along the Boise Greenbelt, or scavenging for food around homes or apartment complex dumpsters.

Why keep raccoons off your property?

  1. Disease: Raccoons can be carriers of diseases such as rabies, which can be transmitted to humans and pets through bites or scratches. It is important to keep raccoons away from your home and family to reduce the risk of contracting these diseases.
  2. Damage: Raccoons are known for their mischievous behavior, and they can cause damage to your property by tearing open garbage bags, digging through gardens, damaging your attic or other areas of your home, and damaging trees and shrubs.
  3. Injury: While raccoons are usually timid animals, they may become aggressive if they feel threatened or if they are protecting their young. This can lead to confrontations for you or your pets.
