Raccoons are classified as a pest species because of their ability to adapt easily to human-dominated landscapes, which in turn contributes to their expansion in numbers and range and the need for raccoon pest control.
The most common complaints are their feeding habits that are damaging to farmers and their crops, they carry diseases that are transferrable to humans and pets and they tend to inhabit human dwellings in urban and suburban areas. In urban and suburban areas, Raccoons opt for living in the attic or underneath a deck rather than a den in the woods and forage for food by tipping over garbage cans, stealing pet food or bird seed out of feeders. Some have been known to tear open screens or enter through pet doors in order to find food.
