Raccoon Poop is Dangerous
Raccoons are the primary hosts of a dangerous parasite called Baylisascris procyonis, also known as raccoon roundworm. Most raccoons have been infected with it. It does not harm the animals very much, but it can be lethal to humans, dogs, and other pets. Roundworm eggs are passed in raccoon feces, which then make their way into the soil or become airborne when the feces dry. Eggs that can have accidentally been ingested hatch within the small intestine and infest their new host, making them very sick. Stay away from raccoon feces and call a professional for help.

Raccoons Don't Flush
Raccoons prefer to deposit their feces in the same locations repeatedly, creating piles of waste known as latrines. These are usually found near the animal’s den, on a raised surface such as the roof, attic, or fence. They may also be found somewhere on the lawn or within a shed or garage. Latrines only get worse with time, and they smell terrible. It is important that you have these cleaned up as soon as possible, then stop the animals from pooping on 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.
