Greer wildlife control tip of the month:
Is raccoon feces dangerous to touch or breathe?
The raccoon is a wild animal you want to avoid if you can. These animals are wild and dangerous. With sharp teeth and claws they can injure Greer pest control easily and cause more problems than you may know. Raccoons frequently carry rabies, and if they were to bite you then you could easily contract the disease and become sick. Rabies must be treated within 24 hours or the chances for death are almost 100 percent. This is an agonizing death as well, so staying away from a raccoon is a really good idea.
There are other reasons for Greer animal trapping to stay away from these beasts as well. Actually not them, but their waste. Raccoons are carriers of a large amount of parasites that come out when they relieve themselves. These parasites are contracted by touching the raccoon feces, but can also be breathed in. This makes being around this waste extremely dangerous for Greer animal control.
One of the most common one of these parasites is Baylisascaris or raccoon ringworm. These is brought into your system and the ringworm larvae hatch in your intestines. From there they line the intestinal walls and begin to enter your blood stream. They cause extremely hazardous problems for the central nervous system that can and will eventually lead to death. It is dangerous how quickly this parasite can kill of the organism it has infected.
This is not the only one however. Raccoon distemper is another series illness that can come from the parasites of these critters. This is a virus that is excreted as part of their waste and can become airborne in a wide variety of ways. The dangerous part of this form of distemper is that your cat or dog can contract it and pass it onto you.
This is highly infectious and contagious and can affect a Greer wildlife removals ability to breathe. Often the first symptoms manifest as watery eyes and a runny nose. It looks like normal hay fever or a cold at first, but in no time it can become a serious problem that can cause permanent damage to the lungs, including causing pneumonia.
This should be a warning to you that you need to keep away from raccoon feces. If you have had a raccoon in your home and you are cleaning up, make sure you or Greer exterminators wear gloves and a mask at all times. In fact you should cover all exposed areas of your skin to be safe. There is no sense in Greer animal control taking a risk here.
