Feces Cleanup Checklist
Wildlife Control Operators (WCOs) are frequently hired to remove the excrement of raccoons, birds, and bats. The challenge they face is removing the fecal material in a manner that is both safe for them and their clients. Research and protocols on these activities is rather thin.
The Arizona State Government has a checklist that homeowners and WCOs may find useful in helping them plan for the removal of animal excrement.
Found a guano removal checklist produced by the State of Arizona. http://www.azrisk.state.az.us/userfiles/file/Excrement%20Removal%20Checklist.pdf.
I hope you find it useful. I think it will be good addition to my Draft Protocol for the Cleanup of Raccoon Latrines-2011.
