Identifying Snake Feces

When snakes excrete waste, it is actually a mixture of feces and urine that looks white and is more of a liquid than a solid, much like bird droppings. The pests' waste may contain bones, hair, scales, and other indigestible materials leftover from meals. Though snakes excrete infrequently, infestations of the reptiles may leave behind a build-up of feces. As the fecal matter smells unpleasant and may contain the bacteria that causes salmonella, nearby individuals are put at health risk when the pests are present.

Infestation & Removal

If snake excrement is found in yards or around homes, individuals should assume that infestations exist nearby. The abundance and size of present droppings helps indicate how many and what type of snakes are infesting a home. Droppings will most likely be found in attics and basements. Due to the risk of being bitten or contracting diseases, house residents and business owners should contact wildlife control experts immediately upon finding snake feces. The experts at Critter Control are able to identify the present pest species by examining excrement and then eliminate infestations in a timely manner.
