Raccoon Poop is Dangerous
Raccoon poop is very dangerous because it usually contains roundworm eggs, an intestinal parasite also known as Baylisascris procyonis. While it does not harm raccoons, it is lethal to humans, cats, dogs, and other pets. Roundworm eggs are passed in the feces, which go into the soil or become airborne as the feces dry. If ingested by accident, the roundworm eggs hatch in the small intestine and infect the rest of the body. Stay away from raccoon feces and have a professional remove them for you.

Raccoons Don't Flush
Raccoons prefer to deposit their feces in the same locations every time. This creates piles of waste called latrines. Latrines are usually found near a raccoon’s den, on raised surfaces like roofs, attics, and decks. Latrines may also appear on fences, patio furniture, or the lawn. As long as the animal feels safe, it will continue to defecate in these places. Latrines therefore get worse with time. Call us and a technician will clean this mess up for you. We can also identify raccoon hiding spots and keep the animals off your property.

What Does Raccoon Poop Look Like?
Raccoon poop looks a lot like dog poop. Droppings are light to dark brown, 2 to 3 inches in length, and blunt at the ends. The only differentiator between a raccoon’s droppings and a dog’s is the presence of undigested berries within the poop. Raccoon poop is also usually found in piles, known as latrines. Latrines are usually found on raised surfaces, such as the top of a roof or the base of a tree. Latrines may also be found in attics.
Feces Removal FAQ
What attracts raccoons to my yard?
Raccoons are attracted to places where they can find food and shelter. They den in attics, decks, and porches, then come out to feed on whatever they find in the yard. Raccoons are omnivores that will eat practically anything. Vegetable gardens, pet food, garbage cans, and bird feeders attract raccoons.
How do you clean it up?
We remove latrines with a combination of disinfectants and heat treatments. First, we spray the feces with disinfectant, then physically remove them and bag them up. We then spray the area again and, if requested, steam clean the area to destroy roundworm eggs.
Is your treatment safe?
Our treatment is completely safe. Our disinfectants are approved by Health Canada for a variety of environments including hospitals, daycares, restaurants, and retirement homes. The products we use eliminate 99.9% of germs and viruses. You can safely use the treated space as soon as the disinfectant dries.
How much does raccoon feces removal cost?
Raccoon feces removal starts at $245. The total cost depends on the size of the latrine and its location. A large pile of feces on the roof, for example, may cost more than a small pile on the ground. Our steam cleaning package starts at $345.
