Anne Arundel County is a developed county in Maryland located below Baltimore County. Anne Arundel County is now home to Maryland’s latest casino, Maryland Live Casino, along with one of the most well-known malls, Arundel Mills Mall. With all of the construction that has taken place in the county, there is no doubt that plenty wildlife has become displaced from the homes. With nowhere else to go, some wildlife could find its way into your Anne Arundel County home. One of the creatures that you could potentially come face to face within your home is a raccoon. While raccoons may seem harmless and appear cute, it’s important to have the raccoons removed from your Anne Arundel County home. Raccoons can cause serious damage to your home as well as your health. Raccoons are known to carry several threatening diseases such as rabies and raccoon roundworm. Both diseases attack the central nervous system of humans and pets that are infected and have the potential to be deadly to both. Rabies is most often transmitted through a bite from an infected creature to one that is unaffected. Raccoon roundworm is transmitted through contact with infected soil or feces. If raccoons have been living in your home for a period of time, chances are they have developed a raccoon latrine. A latrine for raccoons can be compared to a litter box for a cat and can host a number of diseases, including raccoon roundworm. Latrines are typically found in basements and attics of homes where raccoons have lived. As raccoons continue to come and go from your home, more damage can be done to the structure and interior of your home.
