Raccoon Latrine Cleanup and Feces Removal

Raccoons might look like cute, cuddly creatures but they can do serious damage to your property. They can scratch away under shingles and borough into your roof to make their homes in your attic or under your deck. But the animals themselves are not the only problem. Feces is also a major problem as it can cause considerable health hazards. If you need wildlife animals prevention and removal in Mississauga or want proper cleanup of the poop, contact Hawkeye today. Here's all the information you need to know.

Why Raccoon Poop Is Dangerous

Raccoons prefer to deposit their feces in areas that are flat and elevated; however, they are also known to poop at the base of trees or in open areas. When they repeatedly poop in the same spot—which isn’t uncommon—the area is known as a latrine. Raccoons typically nest in a separate area from where they defecate.

Cleaning up the latrines is very important because feces can carry intestinal parasites. Infected animals will shed millions of eggs in their dung, which not only impact the environment but can be inhaled by pets and humans.

Raccoon poop can also carry giardia, leptospirosis, and salmonella, which can harm people and animals that come in contact with it.

Since cleaning chemicals alone will not kill roundworm parasite eggs, it's important to seek professional help to properly exterminate these parasites. The right precautions must be taken to avoid infection and spread of these parasites. Professionals will use properly rated respirators, disposable gloves, proper footwear, and the right clothes to effectively address the situation and by using a combination of bleach and boiling water the eggs will be eliminated from your property.
