Raccoon Poop Removal
We remove latrines completely and disinfect their surrounding areas to remove pathogens and neutralize odours. First, we use hospital-grade disinfectants, then we remove the feces and steam clean the affected surfaces to destroy roundworm eggs. Our three-step process is fool-proof.
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 primary hosts of Baylisascaris procyonis, an intestinal parasite known as raccoon roundworm. While it does not harm raccoons, it can cause serious illness in humans, cats, and dogs. Roundworm eggs are passed in raccoon feces, which then make their way into the soil or become airborne when the feces dry. Ingesting these eggs accidentally allows them to pass through the intestines and into the rest of the body. Stay away from raccoon poop and call a professional for safe removal.

Raccoons Don't Flush
Raccoons prefer to defecate and urinate in the same places, over and over, creating piles of feces called latrines. These are clean animals that keep their droppings away from their dens. Roofs, fences, lawns, and attics are common latrine locations. As long as they are uninterrupted, they will continue to use the same spot. Latrines will only get worse with time. Call us for an inspection and we will remove the latrines on your property for you. Our removal services remove all harmful germs and odours.

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 follow a three-step process in which we disinfect the feces, remove them manually, then steam clean the area. Disinfecting the feces first prevents any germs or parasites from becoming airborne. Once the feces have been removed, we then disinfect the area again, and, if requested, steam clean the surrounding surfaces to ensure that no roundworm eggs have survived.
Is your treatment safe?
Yes, our treatments are safe. We use hospital-grade disinfectants that are safe for both indoor and outdoor use. Our products kill 99.9% of harmful pathogens including covid-19. You can be free to use the disinfected space as soon as it has dried.
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.
