||A pooped little raccoon takes a break.
Customer Raccoon Email: Hello David, Thank you very much for contacting me with your information on squirrel and raccoon removal in attics. Both articles are very well written and the pictures are great. This will be a great help to all rehabilitors! The North American raccoon (Procyon lotor) is the definitive host for Baylis Procyonis. The closely related species Baylis Columnaris and Baylisascaris Melis are parasites of skunks and badgers, respectively. Raccoons do not have Baylis Columnaris to my knowledge. That is the only statement that I found in the articles that I would change. An excellent site on the Baylisascariasis can be found at our site. Our Mississippi Wildlife Rehabilitation, Inc. website can be found here. I am going to send your email to our Director, Valery, and see if we can add your raccoon and squirrel guides to our website. I get a lot of calls about animals In attics or under houses. Unfortunately, we don't have anyone in this area who does Removal jobs. I wish we did! Where do you live? Betty
My Answer: I live in Orlando. I'm aware of the risks of raccoon roundworm. Thanks for the info and the kind words.

The raccoon (Procyon lotor), is a common urban animal, and native to North America. Raccoons are easy to recognize, with a black mask and ringed tail, as seen in the above photo.
Raccoons tend to weigh between 10-20 pounds as adults, and live an average of 5 years. They are mostly nocturnal, and are omnivores, and will often eat pet food or garbage. They have
become very acclimated to living in cities and urban areas. They are very strong, excellent climbers, very intelligent, and they are very skilled with their hands, which causes them to
commonly break into homes and attics, where they cause considerable damage, and they also destroy other property, and thus raccoons
are considered pest animals by many people, which is why I remove them. If you want to learn more, please read my How To Get Rid of Raccoons page.
