Baby raccoons are chattering and scratching in the walls and ceiling

About Racoons

Raccoons are mostly nocturnal.
Adult raccoons weigh between 6-25 lbs. Raccoons are opportunistic feeders and will eat just about anything from garbage, fish, fruits, pet food to baby birds and frog legs.
Raccoons are good climbers and can access just about any roof or attic.
Raccoons do not hibernate, but can spend extended periods of time in their den during cold spells. Raccoons are usually solitary except for females with their young.
Raccoons breed in January to February and have an average litter size of 3-5.
Raccoons can carry rabies and distemper and can become aggressive when approached.
