Oklahoma City Raccoon Control Tip: How to prevent raccoons from pooping in my swimming pool
Raccoons love water, and that is why they naturally reside near streams and lakes in the wild. They use water to wash their hands and sometimes their food. It's also a well-known phenomenon that some animals like to hide their poop. For example, a cat will poop in the sand. But raccoons love to defecate in the water. 

As raccoons have acclimatized to human settlements, they have learned to use swimming pools as they would water bodies in the wild. So the poop you see in your pool might be from a raccoon. In this article, we explore how you can ensure that doesn't happen. But before that, let's briefly explore why you do not want raccoon feces in your pool. 

The Danger of Raccoon Feces
Raccoon feces sometimes contain the eggs of a worm known as Baylisascaris procyonis. Although diagnosed rarely, this roundworm parasite can be transmitted to humans, particularly children, causing a whole array of severe neurologic illnesses. 

While chlorine in pools will kill most of the germs carried in by a raccoon, it doesn't kill Baylisascaris eggs. This is why preventing raccoons from pooping in your swimming pool is crucial if you're serious about preserving the health of your loved ones. 

Preventing Raccoons from Pooping in Your Pool
  • Use a Pool Cover
If you have a raccoon in your vicinity, then ensure you make use of a pool cover. Unfortunately, most people do not consider it necessary, especially in summer when the pool is most useful. Asides from helping protect your pool from raccoon feces, a pool cover will also conserve water by up to 50%, reduce the pool's chemical consumption by up to 60%, and reduce cleaning time by keeping dirt and other debris out of the pool.

  • Avoid Leaving Food Sources Nearby
Prevention is better than cure. By ensuring that you eliminate all food sources from your property, you drastically reduce the chances of having a raccoon visit your pool. Most of the time, a raccoon will take a dump in your pool after it has eaten leftovers from your trashcan or the pet food you left outdoors. Here are some tips to bear in mind:

  1. Ensure that you take your pet food inside every night. 
  2. Ensure that your trashcan is properly sealed and inaccessible to raccoons. 
  3. Keep a clean yard and trim all shrubs to eliminate potential hiding spots. 
  4. Ensure that your bird feeder is out of reach to raccoons. Also, ensure that you clear off seed crumbs lying around your feeder. 
  • Trapping and Relocation
Raccoons are highly intelligent and persistent creatures. Sometimes, they are difficult to scare off as they keep coming up with new tricks under their sleeves. In such cases, trapping and relocation is usually the best option. 

When trapping, you must treat the animal humanely. That's why you should opt for a live trap with enough room for the raccoon. Examples of effective baits include canned tuna, cat food, and sweet foods or fatty meats in general. 

After catching the raccoon, resist the urge to drown it. It's inhumane and illegal.

Instead, the raccoon should be relocated at least 15 miles away from your property to ensure that it does not return. Before relocating any wildlife, ensure you check with your local wildlife authority to confirm the appropriate treatment of captured wild animals. 

The captured raccoon can also be humanely euthanized, depending on what is acceptable by your district laws. 

  • Erect a Fence
This is an effective, albeit expensive means to keep wildlife out for good. You just have to ensure that your fence is installed in a way that makes it impossible for raccoons to scale over or dig underneath it. 

  • Get a Guard Dog
Raccoons and dogs don't mix! Raccoons will avoid your property if you have a guard dog there. And if a raccoon comes near your pool, your dog can always scare it off. 

Wrap Up
Raccoon feces contains a roundworm parasite that is potentially detrimental to your health. That's why you need to ensure their feces do not get in your pool. By adhering to the tips we've explored, the safety of your loved ones is guaranteed.
