What Does Snake Scat Look Like?
When snakes produce waste, it is actually a combination of feces and urine that looks white and is more of a liquid than a solid, much like bird droppings. The pests' waste can contain bones, hair, scales, and other indigestible materials leftover from meals. The amount and size of present droppings helps indicate how many and what type of snakes are infesting a home.
Signs of Infestation
The most common place that Greater Pittsburgh homeowners find droppings is in attics and basements. Though snakes excrete infrequently, infestations of the reptiles may leave behind an accumulation of feces. If snake excrement is discovered in yards or around homes, individuals should assume that infestations exist in the nearby area.

Hazards of Snake Feces
Since fecal matter smells unpleasant and may contain the bacteria that causes salmonella, nearby individuals are exposed to a health risk when the pests are present. Due to the danger of being bitten or contracting diseases, home residents and business owners should contact wildlife control experts immediately upon finding snake feces. The experts at Critter Control are able to identify the pest species that are present by investigating excrement and then eliminating infestations in a timely manner.
