Nuisance Wildlife Control in Tarpon Springs
Those cute raccoons clambering across the roof could be harboring a dangerous parasite, according to University of Georgia scientists. The parasite - Baylisas caris procyonis or raccoon roundworm - is found in most areas of the United States, but until recently wasn't known to be in Georgia and the Southeast.
Now, the creature has wormed its way into at least two Georgia counties, DeKalb and Clarke, said Michael Yabsley, a parasitologist with a joint appointment in the UGA School of Forest Resources and the Southeastern Cooperative Wildlife Disease Study, which tracks wildlife diseases. Raccoons live just fine with the roundworm, which can grow a foot long and as thick as a pencil, but the worm can be dangerous to some other animals - including humans.
The roundworm may invade mammals such as rabbits and rodents, and can also infest birds, Yabsley said. Dogs can pick up the parasite, but medicines used to protect dogs against other worms also work against the raccoon roundworms, he said. Fortunately, the chances of the worm getting into people are very small, he said. Typically, the parasite moves from one animal to another when an animal foraging for food picks through raccoon feces, which may contain the worm's eggs. The roundworm also may move to a new host when a predator animal eats a smaller animal infected with the parasite.
"It's not an easy parasite for humans to get, for sure," Yabsley said.
The rare human victims are often children who manage to ingest roundworm eggs. "I wouldn't be highly concerned about it, as of yet," said Emily Blizzard, a wildlife ecology graduate student in the forestry school who is working with Yabsley. But it's a good idea to keep covers on trash cans to avoid attracting raccoons and to clean decks and other outdoor areas of the raccoon deposits that sometimes show up there, Blizzard said. Raccoons typically defecate in communal areas called latrines, which can be near people's homes, she said. Since about 1984, only about two dozen people have died of raccoon roundworm, and no one in Georgia has ever been diagnosed with the parasite, Yabsley said.
In raccoons, the parasite stays in the animal's intestines, but in other animal hosts like rabbits, the worm may migrate to the brain or the eyes. The animals may be blinded or suffer neurological damage, which makes them easy prey - and a vehicle for the parasite to move on to the predator animal. When the parasite affects a human, the worm may migrate in the same way to eyes or brain. Blizzard has been trapping raccoons in Clarke County this year so she and Yabsley can find out how prevalent the roundworm is here. Of 88 raccoons trapped so far, nine have tested positive for the roundworm, she said.
