Montrose, MI, August 13, 2015 — Certified Environmental Hygienist Phillip Fry cautions homeowners and commercial building owners about the fire and health dangers of raccoons living in houses, barns, workplaces, and commercial buildings.
Raccoons and other wildlife inhabiting homes and other buildings often chew on the insulation coating of electrical wiring, causing electrical shorts and resulting electrical fires that can destroy the house or commercial building and kill or injure occupants.
By hiring EnviroFry Upkeep Masters, LLC to remove the raccoon feces and contaminated building insulation, the property owner or a licensed electrician can inspect the remediated area to find and fix electrical shorts caused by the raccoons and/or other wildlife.

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.
