Many of Illinois's wild animals have learned to adapt and even thrive in our homes. For example some wildlife have found that attics make great places to live. Other animals find refuge under homes or porches. Invariably, these animals cause damage. Rodents, like squirrels and rats, love to chew on electrical wires once in an attic, and this causes a serious fire hazard. Raccoons can cause serious contamination in an attic with their droppings and parasites. Same goes for bat or bird colonies. We specialize in solving Illinois's wildlife problems, from snake removal to large jobs like commercial bat control, we do it all.

Robinson Wildlife Removal Tip: What Is A Raccoon’s Natural Diet?

Raccoons are one of the intelligent, inquisitive mammals who are always up to some mischief with its dextrous hand and flexible body. Raccoons are native of North America, some parts of Canada, Rocky Mountains and it has also extended its territory to northern parts of Mexico. However, today Raccoons are found across the globe in countries like Russia, Japan and Germany.

Raccoons Diet

Naturally raccoons are omnivorous mammal eating both plant and meat however their diet has been affected by the habitat they live in. Raccoon’s diet varies from clams, bird’s eggs, rodents, fruits, vegetables and many more. So there is a great amount of habitat influence on the diet of the racoons.

Raccoon’s diet in wild

Racoons are mostly nocturnal animals and forage its food with the help of its powerful claws and acrobatic body. In the wild raccoons usually feed on frogs, fish, insects, nuts, snakes, rodents and many more. Raccoons forage along the river banks as they are fond of creatures found in water like fish, snails, and crayfish. Raccoons often manipulate and moisten the food in the water that creates a misconception that they wash their food before eating. Since raccoons prefer dark, damp and warm place they traditionally live in cavities made on trees and burrows in wild so hunting during night becomes easy.

Raccoon’s diet in urban areas

Raccoons are opportunist feeders and have access to a versatile diet in the urban areas. Raccoons invade human gardens, farms, homes and garbage in search of food. In gardens and farms they feed on different fruits, vegetables and even livestock like corn, berries, grapes and poultry. Raccoon’s agile paws and fingers aids in plucking food items and opening trash can lids and feeding food from the garbage and raiding bird feeder is done very easy. City dwellers must make sure that pet food is not accessible around the house as raccoon’s feed on it making complete nuisance. A raccoon gives headache to farmers and livestock hoarders as raccoons damage their property.

Diet affected by weather

Weather conditions also affect the diet of the raccoons in the natural world. Severe cold and snow makes raccoons to seek shelter in their dens and hunting and foraging for foods become quite difficult so they spend most of the time sleeping and feeding on food stored during summer and spring. During the hot months raccoons prefer to stay indoors and feed on food available in and around homes. Variety of food is in abundance in the wild and raccoons hunt on young gophers, rodents and many more food items although they are not great hunters. In the fall, raccoons prepare themselves for the winter season and consume more fat gaining food like insect’s larva and meat. This fascinating animal has cleverly manipulated its diet according to their choice of food available in the wild and in cities.
