Raccoon Diseases And Precautions
Baylisacaris is a bacterial infection that originates from roundworms that live in a raccoon’s intestines. Roundworm eggs are passed in the raccoon fecal. Contact with the bacterial in the fecal can cause neurological problems for humans and domestic animals. If you come into contact with raccoon fecal unknowingly, then you are at risk for contracting this infection. The onset of symptoms can begin to appear anywhere from 1 to 4 weeks following exposure. These symptoms include nausea, fatigue, loss of muscle control and coordination, blindness, and coma.
Inspection For Raccoon Feces In Your Attic
Apex Wildlife Control will come to your home and perform an inspection first to ensure that the animal is no longer present in the attic. Our wildlife technician will then perform an interior inspection to look for any signs of recent activity. He will also check for chewed wiring, damage to the HVAC, and duct-work. Our technician will also take pictures of any damages he finds during the inspection. He will then do an exterior inspection to locate all the possible and actual points of entry where the raccoon gained access to your home. Upon completion the technician will sit down with you to review these photos. He will then provide you with a detailed quote to include the sealing the home and trapping. Sometimes it may seem as though the animal has gone, but that is not always the case. Wildlife will leave an attic during the day to search for food and water.
How We Remove Raccoon Feces In Your Attic In Bartlett TN
Raccoon fecal contains a great deal of bacteria that are uncommon in other wildlife. The cleanup of the feces and urine is neither simple nor easy. Exposure to the bacteria in raccoon fecal can be very harmful to humans and other animals like cats and dogs. Thus, it is extremely important when handling wild animal feces to wear the proper protective gear. The person performing the cleanup will need to wear a bodysuit, goggles, gloves, and a face mask with respirator. During the cleaning process particles can be stirred up which can be breathed in or can get into your eyes and this is why a mask with a respirator and protective goggles are necessary. The fecal material will also need to be properly disposed of with the affected area cleaned, disinfected, and deodorized. Raccoons also carry mites, fleas, and ticks which need to be considered during cleanup.
Attic Restoration After Feces Cleanup
If the fecal and urine buildup in your attic proves to be too great then it may be necessary to perform attic restoration. If there is enough urine it can show up as dark spots on the walls and ceiling of your home. The moisture content of the insulation will eventually start to grow mold. Breathing in mold particles can cause you and your family to become very ill. It is important to take care of your home’s insulation.
If you are unable to go into your attic to check the insulation then we can recommend professional restoration companies. These companies will evaluate what can be saved and what cannot be salvaged. Make certain that any restoration company you contact will provide you with pictures of the damage before and repairs.
