What Animal Droppings Are In My House?
Bat Feces: Although bat feces (also known as guano) is used as fertilizer in certain areas, it is extremely hazardous to human health. Bat guano looks like small, dark pellets. Bats are often found in attics and enclosed, dark spaces like barns and other outbuildings.
Rodent Droppings: Mouse droppings are usually around 1/4 inch long and found in human high-traffic areas like kitchens and hallway walls. Mouse feces can carry salmonella and leptospirosis, among others. Learn more about mouse behavior here.
Raccoon Poop: Raccoon waste is typically found outside or in attics—places raccoons are usually found. Their feces is blunted at the end and usually quite dark. Learn more about raccoon feces here!
Squirrel Droppings: Squirrel droppings appear similar to rat droppings. They share similar smoothness and color, but squirrel poop is larger and more bluntly shaped than tapered, narrow rat droppings.
