Wildlife Defecating Habits

Wildlife have many different defecating habits. Raccoons and squirrels will generally use one area as a latrine. Rats and mice will excrete feces as they run, creating a trail of droppings. Both habits create a serious health hazard for homeowners.

Call Critter Control of Traverse City if you have found wildlife droppings in your home. We offer the professional experience and equipment needed to get rid of animals and clean up their feces.

Raccoon/Squirrel Feces

Raccoon feces and squirrel droppings are commonly discovered in attics. Depending on your wildlife problem, you may have an extensive mess of wildlife droppings in the attic or the feces may be difficult to uncover (animals sometimes cover their waste). If an animal has used a single area as a latrine, it will be terribly unhygienic and a source of disease. If you suspect wildlife in your home, or have found animal droppings in your home, call the professionals immediately!

Rat/Mice Feces

Rat feces and mice droppings may be found anywhere around your home. Common areas where rodent droppings are found include under sinks, pantries, bathrooms, near floor boards, attics, crawl spaces and more. Rodents in the kitchen may chew through containers and contaminate food. Finding rodent droppings in your home? Give us a call today! (231) 238-3553
