Raccoons are becoming an ever-increasing problem in Salt Lake City and Park City, Utah. As they are not native to our state, they thrive here nonetheless. They have adapted to live close to humans quite well. In urban areas, raccoons will usually make their dens in chimneys and under houses. Raccoons are usually nocturnal and omnivorous. They will scavenge pet food left outdoors and rummage through garbage looking for food.
What diseases do raccoons carry?
Many raccoons can carry different types of diseases like rabies, distemper, mange and carry parasites including lice, fleas, ticks, and roundworm. Eighty percent of raccoons that have been tested in Utah have been exposed to rabies as indicated by the presence of rabies titer, which is why raccoon control in Salt Lake and Park City is so essential.
