Can Raccoon Urine Make you Sick

Can Raccoon Urine Make you Sick

Raccoon urine is as dangerous as feces and they usually come in a pair. If there is urine on your property your children will be the ones in the most dangerous as they roll around on the ground and come in frequent contact with the urine.

The most important thing to do is to get rid of whatever raccoons are on your property and disinfect and clean any raccoon feces. Take away their food source by emptying bird feeders, not feeding pets outside, covering vegetable gardens and fruit trees and laying plastic over anywhere that may have had a latrine.

Now if you find a latrine on your property you will have to clean it because it’s a huge biohazard. You will need a number of tool like full covering clothing and a ventilator and shovel. The feces should be shovelled into garbage bags but the urine has sunk into the soil down at least 3-4 feet and needs to be dug up and disposed of. You can then wrap the area in steel mesh to prevent the raccoon from returning and trying to use it again.

Raccoon urine carries a number of dangerous illness like giardia which can be fatal, if you do not sterilize the area after the cleanup you will be risking your health and the health of your family and pets. So make sure to clean it very well with boiling water.

If a raccoon is urinating in your house the urine will drip down the walls and endanger anyone who even touches it. Cleaning this is more difficult because it’s indoors so you may want to call a professional if you have a raccoon in your attic pissing all over the place.

At Raccoon Control we will remove the insulation that was soiled and use hospital grade, eco-friendly cleaners to sterilize and deodorize the area.
