What Does Mole Scat Look Like?
Mole droppings are tiny, pellet-like, and typically brown in color. Though moles spend the majority of their time in their subterranean layers, their feces can appear above ground. Typically, Greater Pittsburgh homeowners find small piles of these feces near surface runways, which are dead strips of grass that result from the mole's tunneling.
Hazards of Mole Feces
Overall, mole scat is not harmful to humans, pets, or yards. There are no infectious diseases humans can acquire from mole droppings. However, the pests themselves may have ticks that carry Lyme disease, and finding mole droppings in yards is a sure sign of infestation. The removal of these pests can eliminate any danger, and curb landscaping issues, such as loss of grass and death of plants, from occurring.
