Many of Texas'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 Texas's wildlife problems, from snake removal to large jobs like commercial bat control, we do it all.

Greater Heights Wildlife Removal Tip: What Is A Raccoon's Natural Diet?

Raccoons have a diverse diet. Being omnivorous animals, they can live on a variety of food items depending on where they live. Professionals reveal that raccoons are adaptable animals, so they can easily learn to live in variable environmental conditions. They are commonly observed stealing food from natural habitats, various residential areas and even from buildings. Raccoons that live in wild areas live on large prey such as mammals and birds etc. however, they do not have specific demands; anything that is easily available is sufficient for them. Those who are fond of visiting urban areas prefer to attack yard and garden areas to enjoy berries, nuts, fruits, eggs, and insects.

These nocturnal animals prefer to create their dens in the woody areas that are close to sources of water so that they can easily catch various amphibians, reptiles, shellfish, and fishes. Raccoons are known for their mischievous behavior and destructive habits. From past few years, they have expanded over large areas and are mostly seen in urban locations. If you observe them wandering around your property, it is better to seal all the entry points and close the trash cans with tight lids. Make sure to keep your garden and yard areas clean so that raccoons do not find anything to eat.

Natural diet of raccoons:

Raccoons that live in urban areas have an unlimited supply of fresh vegetables, nuts, fruits, and preys. All these items are considered as normal diets of raccoons, and these animals often come to collect eatables in the night hours. Experts reveal that these creatures eat most of the food in the summer season and it can also provide them enough energy in the winters as well when they stay inside their dens most of the time. That is why many farmers are in trouble due to raccoon attacks as they eat up all the veggies while destroying the crops completely.

Raccoons that spend more time in the manmade structures are habitual of eating human foods as well. With time, raccoons have become opportunistic eaters, and they stay ready to attack whatever they get easily on the premises. You can often find them messing up with the trash cans and human or pet leftovers in the parks or garden areas. However, raccoons are more attracted towards sweet smell including honey, fruits and few delicious dishes containing sugar.

The wild raccoons have an excellent set of sharp teeth that can easily tear down meat, eat crops and grind plants as well. They usually attack worms, small snakes, squirrels, chicken, frogs, fruits, eggs, and fish. In short, we can say that raccoons can eat anything so if you want to get rid of them; it is better to clean your premises in a routine so that nothing is openly available to eat. If you have pets at home; prefer to feed them inside so that raccoons do not find time to attack their food outside. Also, it is good to install fences around the property to avoid raccoon infestation.
