Dry raccoon feces is perhaps the single most dangerous thing in the wild. More dangerous than an angry alligator, because the alligator may miss when it attacks. Dry raccoon feces never misses, it strikes every time. The illness you can get from this media is called Raccoon Round Worm and when the feces are dry the roundworm eggs, or spores, become airborne. They can be inhaled and are very likely to grow into a roundworm which will travel through blood vessels to the brain and cause memory loss and strange behavior as well as permanent brain damage. You cannot clean raccoon feces on your own, even with pure bleach, even with sulfuric acid. The roundworm is in the air and no amount of liquid will stop it from entering your lungs. If you want to clean raccoon feces you will need a proper respirator that provides you oxygen from a tank. You will need full coverage, thick, work clothes, and latex gloves under gardening gloves. All the tools and clothing you use, everything you are wearing will have to be disposed of immediately after cleaning the feces. This is a huge expense and nothing can be rented, all tools must be bought and then destroyed in a fire. They cannot be cleaned.
