While unpleasant, one of the best indicators of a wildlife pest is the droppings it leaves behind. Since foxes are nocturnal and avoid people, homeowners often find fox poop long before catching a glimpse of the animal itself. Fox scat might signal other wildlife problems. If you find fox poop on your property, the fox might be hunting animals like rodents, birds, or rabbits.
What Does Fox Poop Look Like?
Fox droppings are similar to coyote scat, only smaller. Typically, their feces are tan or brown and about two to three inches long with pointy ends. A fox's variable diet affects the appearance of its feces, so waste may contain bones, hair, insects, and bits of fruit or seeds.
Why is Fox Feces a Problem?
While foxes themselves can spread diseases like rabies and mange, contact with their droppings is just as dangerous. Fox scat often contains tapeworms and roundworms. To make matters worse, these parasites and their eggs contaminate the soil beneath fox poop as well.
Animals enter homes for a variety for reasons. Prey animals can enter a home to escape from a predator. A fox on your property could be driving rodents into your home.
In addition to carrying a number of diseases that can spread to people and pets, foxes may become hostile if threatened. To avoid the dangers of conflict with foxes, contact the expert team at Critter Control to handle the nuisance wildlife and their droppings.

Best Bat Removal
Brandon was out to please and make out lives easier with out bat situation. Above and beyond of the call of duty and got the job done. Thank you!
BAT POOP CLEAN-UP AND PREVENTION! Bat guano removed from gables. No bats found in attic, so put new screens on all gable vents, as one screen was close to breaking and then bats may have gotten in! Great work in Tulsa
Squirrels and chipmunks were in our attic. So we called Critter Control to do an inspection. Their representative climbed all over our very steep roof and found several places where squirrels had entered our attic.
Upon inspection of the attic, evidence of bats was also found. The Critter Control team came on time to completely caulk the entire perimeter of the house and create an exit strategy for the squirrels and bats.
Because bat droppings
can cause histoplasmosis, this also required total removal and replacement of our attic insulation and sanitizing the space. Not a small job in a 1,300 sq. ft. attic! While Critter Control’s cost was high, our homeowners insurance covered most of it. Everyone representing Critter Control was professional, courteous and timely. I would highly recommend them to anyone who thinks they might have unwelcome guests living in their attic
On recommendations from a nearby pest control company, I called Critter Control for suspicious bat droppings
Madison came out the same day to do an inspection. She was knowledgeable, thorough, and highly professional. She examined the ‘matter’ that had been scattered on my threshold and thought it was foliage. But she then asked to go up to my attic space where the bats could be roosting. She had to walk up 3 flights of stairs with a heavy ladder. She again spent some time searching all the nooks and crannies and found nothing.
She seemed so interested in her craft, it was truly inspiring to see! She reassured me and is writing up a prevention strategy for my appraisal. She charged me NOTHING!! I am so impressed. We need more Madisons in this world!

We noticed droppings on our brand new deck - we were given their number from our contractor. They came the next day. Brian looked at it and said - yeah, bats!! He then checked every area in our attic and he explained exactly what needed to be done.
He found evidence of a mice infestation, provided a referral and they are helping us as well. Great service, very informative, very professional! We are very satisfied and would recommend them to anyone who has any issues with any critters!
