Raccoon Risks

Raccoons are considered a vector species for rabies, but occurrences are rare. Humans and pets who come in contact with raccoon feces can potentially contract the intestinal parasite known as raccoon roundworm and leptospirosis. Raccoons can also carry canine distemper and feline parvovirus.

These diseases are possible, but the hazards of a raccoon infestation more commonly result in:

  • Destruction of property
  • Reduction of bird population
  • Damage to gardens
  • Destruction of crops

Raccoon control is best handled through a pest control professional, like Viking Pest Control. They can do a thorough inspection of your property to determine best practices such as:

  • Sealing openings on your home (chimney caps, loose siding, etc)
  • Creating locked area for trash storage
  • Removal of yard waste
  • Reduction of food sources (pet food, bird feeders)
