Raccoons like forest areas near water. They den in hollow trees, and ground burrows, brush piles, abandoned buildings & attics. Raccoons are omnivorous, eating both plant and animal foods. Some of the plant foods consist of nuts, berries and grains. They also eat other animal foods such as fish, insects, eggs, mice and even rabbits.
Raccoons can cause damage to corn crops. They also can cause damage and be a nuisance around houses and outbuildings when they are trying to gain entrance to chimneys or attics. They do this particularly in the spring when they are looking for a den to have their babies. They may even tear off shingles or facia board to get into attic spaces or walls for a den site.

Raccoons will sometimes roll up fresh sod to get earthworms and grubs. Raccoons are nocturnal so they will do their damage through the night. Raccoons have a reported increase in rabies over the last thirty years, mostly in the eastern United States.
