Fairfax County pest control

We are Virginia's top experts in wildlife and raccoon control. We are not a typical Fairfax County 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 Fairfax County 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

Fairfax County Raccoon Control Tip: A Look At The Raccoon's Mating Habits
The raccoon is one of the most common species of wild animal to be found in the United States, and as it is one of the species that is found in most urban and suburban areas too, it is one of the animals that often comes into contact with people. There are many species that have adapted to their surroundings, and one of the interesting aspects of raccoon reproduction is that larger litters are actually more likely in areas that have a higher raccoon mortality rate.

When Is A Raccoon's Mating Season?
There are a number of factors that can have an impact on when the mating season will begin, but for the majority of raccoons it will coincide with the increasing period of daylight from the end of winter until around March. Generally, the further south the raccoons are in the country, the later their mating season will start, and in some cases the mating season can begin as late as March in some areas, stretching in to the early summer and drawing to a close in June, although this is relatively rare.

The Activity Of A Male Raccoon During Mating Season
As with most wild animal species, it is the male that does the seeking work, as they will usually start looking for female raccoons. Raccoons are generally solitary creatures, but during the mating season the male will actually range well away from their usual territory looking for females that are looking to mate, and in most cases the raccoons will congregate in central meeting places. The male will then look to pair with female raccoons several times during this period, and they will often visit several different areas during this period to seek opportunities to procreate during this season.

The Social Meeting Spots Of Raccoons
A key part of the reproduction cycle of the raccoon is the central mating spots where the raccoons actually meet in order to be able to mate. Although there is no specific type of area where this can occur, generally they will be closer to where the females are nesting, and it is the males that roam further away from their territories in order to be able to locate these meeting spots. 

Copulation And Mating
One of the interesting aspects of the mating process for raccoons is that while the stronger males tend to fight for the opportunity to mate in most species, it appears that most females will seek multiple partners while they are ready for conception. Female raccoons will usually only be able to conceive for around three or four days a month, and during these evenings they will generally mate with several males, including some of the weaker members along with the strongest males. The mating itself includes some foreplay, and can take up to an hour in total once the female has chosen the male with which she will copulate for that evening.

What Happens Once A Female Is Pregnant
Once she has been impregnated, the female will then retire to her nest and no longer continue to seek out male partners each evening during the mating season. The gestation period is usually around two months as the young raccoons grow, with up to a maximum of 70 days of gestation possible in some cases. The female will then give birth to a litter of several kits, ranging from 2 or 3 in areas with a relatively low mortality rate up to six or seven in some cases. The baby raccoons are very vulnerable when born, and will grow relatively slowly, ultimately being weaned after around four months, and they will then usually stay with the female until the fall.
