Raccoon Poop Is Dangerous
Do You Have A Raccoon In The Attic?
Raccoons in your attic are not just annoying, but dangerous. Raccoon droppings are a biological hazard to you and your family, due to the high instance of a parasite called Baylisascaris procyonis also known as Raccoon Roundworm. This is a roundworm that can cause extremely serious diseases in people.
Young And Old Beware
For children and the elderly, as well as those with weakened immune systems, exposure to this roundworm can be fatal.
Most humans are exposed through direct or indirect contact with raccoon scat (poop), which contains millions of roundworm eggs. Though the roundworms themselves can’t survive outside of an animal host, their eggs are extremely tough and can remain viable for years. So people can come into contact with old and decomposed raccoon droppings, or even the dirt where it once was, and become very ill.
What Are The Symptoms?
For people, exposure symptoms include nausea, skin irritation, fatigue, confusion, loss of coordination and muscle control, as well as liver enlargement, blindness and coma.
