Bat Guano or Mouse Droppings?

Today I received a call from a homeowner that really had a problem. Mrs. X was perplexed as to how rodents and bats could be so different, yet their droppings were the same.

Mrs. X was wrong—their droppings are not the same. This is a common identification problem that has an easy solution. Here’s how to tell the difference between bat guano and rodent fecal droppings:

  1. Rodent fecal matter when squashed will stay mostly solid, unless it is very old.
  2. Bat guano breaks into dust when squashed, and will also have a metallic look due to bats’ insect-laden diet.

This ID method is the one all pest management professionals use on a daily basis. It’s quick, easy, and right every time.
