A raccoon’s height is 9 to 10 inches and weighs 6 to 20 pounds. On attic raccoons can do a great deal of damage to your house as they usually target the upper exterior portions of the house. Common entry holes or points include displaced broken eave fascia boards, soffits beneath eaves, torn roof shingles exposing open roof lines, or damaged gable vents. You may also find evidence of a raccoon latrine on the roof, near garbage cans, pet food feeders, or inside the attic. This would include flattened insulation, flexible ducts ripped apart and chewed wiring. This not only ruins insulation but can also present a fire hazard.

Raccoon droppings contain small raccoon roundworm eggs that can infect people and cause severe sickness if consumed or breathed accidentally. Even though these infections are uncommon, they can cause irreparable brain, heart, and eye damage and death.

A female raccoon can turn aggressive to protect her offspring. This can include attacking anyone who comes near her resting place, and if you have a young child in your home, a raccoon attack could be devastating.

When it comes to removing and controlling raccoons in Columbia, SC, residents (and those in surrounding areas) can rest assured their homes will be safe from these issues. Our Columbia Raccoon Removal Team is ready to serve you 24/7!

In addition to causing damage to a property, a raccoon invasion carries a number of serious health dangers. Raccoons can transmit the following illnesses to humans:

Rabies: Rabies is a virus transferred by coming into touch with a rabid animal’s saliva or being scratched or bitten by a rabid animal. Raccoons are one of the most prevalent carriers of rabies in the United States.

Baylisascaris procyonis: (Bay-lis-asc-aris): The ascarid, or roundworm, is a parasite that lives in raccoons’ intestines and produces a vast number of eggs in their excrement. After 2-4 weeks of incubation, feces infected with eggs can infect people. Exposure to excrement during handling, feeding, and cleaning can result in Visceral Larval Migrans, a dangerous condition that causes infection of the central nervous system. Infection typically occurs when someone ingests the eggs of the worm, either directly or indirectly (e.g., by eating contaminated food).

Giardiasis: Giardiasis is a tiny protozoal illness spread by a wide range of wild animals. Raccoon feces can transport this pathogen, contaminating water, soil, and surfaces. Ingestion of infective cysts from infected animals and sources can lead to Giardia infection in humans. Patients may experience significant gastrointestinal problems.

Leptospirosis: Leptospira species is a bacterial illness that can affect both animals and people. Leptospirosis can be transmitted by raccoons through their urine and secretions. Humans can become infected if these excretions are exposed to open wounds or taken orally.

Other Diseases: Other bacterial illnesses (such as Salmonella or E. Coli), fungi, and uncommon parasites can cause sickness in humans. People who handle, feed, or clean up after raccoons should be aware of the possible health risks and exercise proactive hygiene and sanitation to avoid infection of the skin, eyes, mouth, and body. Physicians can assess individuals who may have been exposed and recommend appropriate actions to prevent disease.
