Raccoon Poop Removal
We remove raccoon poop using a three-step approach in which we deal with the raccoon matter and neutralize the threat of roundworm eggs. First, we spray a disinfectant, then remove the feces manually. Next, we disinfect some more and use a steam cleaner to destroy any remaining roundworm eggs.
We carefully remove all organic matter and take it away for safe disposal. No raccoon poop is left behind.
We use hospital grade commercial disinfectants to kill all pathogens in the area that the raccoons used to defecate.
We use high heat in the form of steam to treat the affected area. The high heat destroys all roundworm spores in the area.

Raccoon Poop is Dangerous
Raccoons are the definitive hosts of an intestinal parasite called Baylisascris Procyonic. This parasite, also known as raccoon roundworm, passes its eggs in its host’s feces. Roundworm eggs then spread into the soil or become airborne when the feces dry. While rare, humans that have come in contact with raccoon poop face serious illness. Cats, dogs, and other pets are also susceptible to getting sick. The majority of raccoons in Markham have roundworm. It is important that you stay away from any raccoon droppings and contact a professional for safe removal.

Raccoons Don't Flush
If raccoons could use toilets, they probably would! These are neat animals that prefer to relieve themselves in the same locations, every time. Over time, the feces pile up and become what are called latrines. Latrines are usually found somewhere near a raccoon’s den, such as the roof, lawn, shed, or deck. These are not only a nuisance but a health hazard as they contain a plethora of diseases and parasites. Call us and a professional will remove the feces safely and effectively.

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.
