Wildlife Defecating Habits

Wildlife animals have many habits when it comes to defecating. Raccoons and squirrels will use one area of your attic as a latrine, and rodents will excrete feces on the run. Both habits create a serious health hazard for homeowners. Call Critter Control of Milwaukee if you find wildlife droppings in your home or suspect an animal nesting in your home. We have the professional experience and equipment needed to get rid of animals and remove the wildlife feces in your home. (414) 488-6885

Raccoon/Squirrel Droppings

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

Rat/Mice Feces

Rodent droppings may be found anywhere around your home. Common areas that rodent droppings are found include under sinks, in kitchen cupboards, bathrooms, and under sinks. Mice and rats in the kitchen may chew through food containers and contaminate your food. Give us a call if you are finding rodent droppings in your home. (414) 488-6885
