When you moved in to your Linthicum home, the last thing you anticipated was having to share it with a nest of raccoons! If raccoons have found their way in to your home, they can carry with them one very risky parasite: roundworms. Roundworms can easily affect humans and pets and cause a number of severe health problems. For that reason, and because you simply do not want to share your home with a wild animal, it is vital to call your raccoon control experts from Mid-Atlantic Wildlife Control. Raccoon roundworms are found when raccoons nest in your basement, attic, or crawl spaces and use it as a raccoon latrine. If people or animals come into contact with raccoon feces, then they can easily contract raccoon roundworms, which cause nausea, skin irritation, and fatigue, and escalates to loss of muscle control, blindness, and potential coma. Because you want to protect yourself and your family from this disease, the only solution is to remove raccoons from the area and disinfect the latrine. Roundworms are resistant to most types of disinfectant, and so the experts from Mid-Atlantic Wildlife Control can help you deal with them. The most common way to disinfect a raccoon roundworm area is by burning all contaminated materials and washing the area with bleach and boiling water. In order to carry out this process safely, you should contact a raccoon control professional first. We at Mid-Atlantic Wildlife Control can prevent further risks associated with raccoons by employing tactics to stop them from reentering your home. These include live trapping and removal, entry point seal up, vent cover and chimney cap installation, eviction barriers, and crawl space restoration.
