Montrose, MI, August 09, 2015 — Massive amounts of raccoon feces (poop) were found and removed from above the ceilings and in the roof overhangs of a client home in Painesville, Ohio, in mid-August, 2015, reported Certified Environmental Hygienist Phillip of EnviroFry Upkeep Masters, LLC.
“Fortunately, the client’s homeowner’s insurance policy covered raccoon infestation, and the insurance company paid the entire cost of the feces removal, which necessitated removal of the ceilings and roof overhangs to find and get rid of the very extensive raccoon poop deposits,” noted Mr. Fry, who is also a Professional Industrial Hygienist.
Pictures of the Painesville house raccoon poop infestation and the EnviroFry feces removal protocol steps are posted on the raccoon feces removal website www.raccooncleanup.com.

Health Dangers of Raccoon Feces (Poop)
Deposited raccoon feces (poop) are very likely to contain roundworm eggs that can be hazardous to human health. The adult stage of the raccoon roundworm (Baylisascaris procyonis) lives in the raccoon’s intestine and produces microscopic eggs that are shed in the raccoon’s feces. One raccoon roundworm can produce more than 100,000 eggs a day.
A raccoon can pass millions of eggs in its feces everyday, depending on how many worms are in its intestines. Once deposited in the environment, the eggs develop into the infectious form in 2-4 weeks, and can survive in the soil for several years.
If these infectious eggs are inadvertently swallowed by humans, other mammals, or birds, larvae (immature stage of worms) hatch out of the eggs and move into the organs of the body. The larvae travel throughout the body and may cause serious eye disease, spinal cord or brain damage, or death.
Discouraging raccoons from living around people and cleaning up raccoon latrines reduces the chance that people will get sick from raccoon roundworms.
