Raccoon Poop Removal
We provide raccoon poop removal and disinfection across the GTA. No matter the extent or severity of the issue. First, we spray the feces with disinfectant, then remove the feces manually. We then disinfect the area again, and, if requested, use a steam cleaner to destroy 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 host an intestinal parasite known as Baylisascris procyonis, or raccoon roundworm. While this worm does not harm raccoons, it can cause serious illness in humans and their pets. Roundworm eggs are passed in the host’s feces, which then migrate into the soil or into the air. Accidentally touching raccoon feces may result in an infection. Symptoms include nausea, fatigue, loss of muscle coordination and blindness. Raccoon latrines should therefore be removed as soon as possible.

Raccoons Don't Flush
Raccoons tend to deposit their feces in the same locations, over and over. This creates piles of waste known as latrines. As relatively clean animals, they would rather defecate away from their dens. The problem with this behaviour however is that the piles only get worse with time. As long as the animal feels safe, it will go to the same latrine. Latrines are commonly found on lawns, at the bases of trees, in or on top of decks, and on rooftops. In some cases, raccoons will create latrines in the attic. Call us if there is a latrine on your property and we will remove it immediately.

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.
