Hi David, I initially used your website once I found out there were raccoons in my attic. I ended up hiring a local wildlife company to do a complete attic insulation removal, decontamination, blowback, and new ceiling sheetrock since the raccoons peed for so many years it had saturated it with yellow urine stains (I thought the roof was leaking). The problem is, their vacuum broke, so these "pros" decided that since I was getting new drywall anyway, they would just pull down the old drywall and let the raccoon feces and urine contaminated insulation fall to tarps on the floor, then drag it through the house out of the front door into a dumpster, leaving fluffs of insulation everywhere, including the kitchen. I read that the roundworm eggs can only be killed with heat, so I am confused as to how I can decontaminate my entire house of these invisible eggs. Is there anything I can do? We are looking for Maitland animal control or Maitland Wildlife Removal to help us. I use respirators whenever I enter the house, but I am afraid of letting my 4 year old daughter back in. We are still staying at a different location while the work is being done, but now I am worried about going back. Any help you can give would be greatly appreciated! Sincerely, Jennin
My response: I'd say the chance of roundworm egg is incredibly rare. If it was my house, I would live in it as normal. Where in the country do you live? What company did you hire? Did you find them off of my directory?
Oh my goodness, thank you so much for your email!!!! I at least have some peace of mind now. Luckily I live in the Southeast, but unfortunately live about an hour away from a patch of infected raccoons that were located in Orange County FL - the only spot within several states that I found to have infected raccoons. I initially contacted your company from your directory, but after completing a contact me form I never heard back from them. I ended up hiring Syth Wildlife, a subsidiary of Syth Exterminating. Overall I think the exterminating side is really good, but the owner's daughter's husband started the wildlife portion and from what I have seen it's pretty crappy. I wouldn't recommend these people to my worst enemy. Thanks again for taking the time to respond!!! :) Sincerely, Jennine
