More Raccoons Spotted in Cold Weather
Raccoons and opossums may travel far and wide looking for something to eat. Raccoons survive naturally on acorns and stream life, but a dog or cat bowl outside your Tampa home is easy pickings.
Your pet won’t starve being without its food until morning and the critters will be tempted to your Orange County doorstep. Raccoons and opossums will also be lured by food in any trash outside that is not in a secure location.
Holes in your Orlando home’s eaves make a fine winter shelter for raccoons, opossums, and squirrels. If they are comfortable in your attic over the next few months they may believe this location is a safe spot to rear their young.
