New York City pest control

We are New York's top experts in wildlife and raccoon control. We are not a typical New York City raccoon control or pest control company. We don't treat wild animals like insects, because they are not! You can't just use poison to get rid of them. You also can't just set a few traps on the ground and call it good. Each situation is unique. And remember, if you have raccoons living in your house, it is almost certainly a female with a litter of young inside. These juveniles must be removed by hand, or they will starve to death and die. And after they are gone, the entry holes into the house must be sealed with professional repairs. Unlike most New York City pest control, we focus on complete and permanent solutions, by following these steps:

  • Inspect the entire house, ground to roof, and the attic
  • Seal shut all entry areas with professional grade steel
  • If in attic, we remove the baby raccoons by hand
  • Technical and human raccoon trapping appropriate to situation
  • When necessary, we clean raccoon droppings and replace insulation

New York City Raccoon Control Tip: How to Identify Raccoon Tracks 
The best evidence we have suggests that early humans were hunter-gatherers. They survived exclusively by tracking down animals for food. This was before farming was ever developed! Our ancestors had to be adept in tracking to hunt down unseen game animals and learn about predators that were lurking behind - their lives depended on it! 

Thankfully, the modern man doesn't need to have an inkling of tracking to eat the most elusive kinds of meat. But if you're a hunter or trapper, your success depends on knowing how to track animals. This skill is also invaluable to nature lovers and wildlife photographers. And if you find yourself in a survival situation, knowing the basics of tracking can be a lifesaver.

In this article, we focus our attention on raccoon tracks. What do they look like? How can you distinguish them from the tracks of similar animals? Keep reading to find out the answers. 

Background Information
Raccoons are fascinating creatures. They are omnivores and are mainly active at night. As they parade their vicinity under the cover of darkness, they live behind long trails that you can easily follow. Raccoon prints bear a striking resemblance to a human handprint, but there are some unique differences. With their adept fingers, they can easily catch prey and pick up food items. 

Raccoon Tracks

As stated earlier, raccoon prints are similar to handprints. Therefore, the most obvious sign to look for is five fingers imprinted in the mud. These fingers are slightly symmetrically (meaning they are almost parallel), and this feature helps tell them apart from opossums and muskrats. Opossums have wide-splayed toes. While muskrats have five toes also, the fifth toe is rarely imprinted in the soil. 


There are some differences in size between the front and hind paw tracks of a raccoon. Let's briefly take a look at them:

Front Track
  • A raccoon's front track is typically 1.5 - 3.2 inches long, while it is 1.4 to 2.9 inches wide. 
  • It has small sharp claws appended to the tip of the toes. 
  • The palm pad is C-shaped and is slightly wider on the outside. 
  • The front track also contains a small mound in the middle of the track - thanks to the negative space at the end of the palm pad. 
  • The front track is smaller than the hind track. 
Hind Track
  • A raccoon's hind track is typically 1.4 to 4.1 inches long, while it is 1.3 to 3 inches wide. 
  • Toe 1, which is the inside toe, registers slightly lower than the rest. 
  • When compared to the front track, the toes of the hind track points more forward. 
  • The palm pad is large and curved. It also gets larger towards the outside. 
  • It also has much less negative space at the posterior end, when compared to the front track. 
  • A raccoon's hind track is larger than the front track. 
Walking Pattern
Another thing to look out for is the walking pattern of raccoons. Raccoons move in a ‘diagonal pattern' - similar to a deer. What this means is that their tracks are usually paired with the left hind foot placed next to the raccoon's right forefoot as the animal walks along. This unique pattern makes their track easy to identify.

Other Tracking Features
When tracking is mentioned, identifying prints is invariably what comes to the mind of most people. However, there are other features you should be on the lookout for when tracking a raccoon. 

Scat (Feces)

Raccoons are omnivores, and they eat a wide range of food. What this means is that their feces can have different physical attributes depending on what they've consumed. 

But in general, raccoon scat can range from dark to light brown. A tell-tale sign is usually the presence of leftover seeds, shells, or berries inside their scat. 

Raccoons make large latrines usually on fallen logs and the bases of large trees near water. So keep your eyes out for those locations. 

Remember to take extra precaution when examining raccoon scat because it could contain a parasitic roundworm, which can be devastating to your health if inhaled.
