Disinfection of Raccoon Feces Using Hospital-Grade Botanical Sterilizers

The initial call to the property was for raccoon feces on the property to the right of the house on the ground. This is common for raccoons who tend to defecate away from where they nest. However, feces is still found in the nest itself which calls into question the reason they prefer to defecate in such unusual and hard-to-reach places. Shed roves, third-floor decks, and areas too high for even a human to climb safely. This is a serious issue as unlike dog feces and most other feces, raccoon feces, like bird feces is very dangerous and toxic. It is considered a biological hazard and government ministries recommend not cleaning it yourself. The danger in the feces is not its general bacterial content which is astounding but one very specific parasite that lives in it. This danger is only assured when the feces has begun to dry. So wet feces can be removed easily without too much danger. Dry feces is flakey and wind or movement can release particles containing the spore of this parasite. Raccoon roundworm. A parasite that can enter your lungs and pass through its permeable layer into the bloodstream. From there, it follows the blood flow to the brain where it remains and grows. This parasite cannot be removed and there is no cure for it. Even brain surgery is unsuccessful. The symptoms of the parasite are simple and obvious. The person infected will start to forget things as the parasite eats holes through their brain. This is enough to know not to go near dry feces and to call a professional for its removal.
