Raccoon feces carry a dangerous parasitic disease, the ruoundworm. Furthermore, it is a disease and parasites that do not infect the raccoon in any way, but which are extremely dangerous for humans. These parasites, in fact, can cause problems that go up to brain damage and then death.
But what does this have to do with raccoon feces? Very simple, the eggs of these parasites are expelled by raccoons through the stool. As a result, not only can feces found around raccoons be dangerous, but in the event of an infestation in the house, raccoons could turn your home into a real biological threat to you.
This roundworm can enter your body either through contact or through breath when it is in the air. And that’s why dry raccoon feces are very dangerous. By drying out, the feces become more likely to pulverize and spread in the air, bringing with them parasite eggs that can be breathed easily.
