Raccoon Poop is Dangerous
Raccoons carry Baylisascris procyonis, an intestinal parasite known as raccoon roundworm. Though it does not cause raccoons much harm, it is lethal to humans, cats, and dogs. The parasite’s eggs are passed in raccoon feces, which then permeate the soil or become airborne when the feces dry. One can become infected by accidentally touching a contaminated surface or inhaling the air near raccoon feces. Eggs hatch in the small intestine, then make their way around the body, causing severe symptoms such as blindness and coma. If there are raccoon feces on your property, call us and a technician will remove them safely.

Raccoons Don't Flush
Like us, raccoons like to do their business in the same places, but they don’t flush! Raccoons deposit their feces in the same locations, over and over again, creating piles of waste called latrines. Latrines are usually found somewhere near the animals’ dens on rooftops, decks, and lawns. They may also be found in attics, causing odours and spreading pathogens in the air. Latrines only get worse with time. As long as the animal feels safe, it will visit the same latrine. Call us for effective removal and disinfection. We can then determine where the animals are coming from and devise a solution.

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.
