It's possible they are from the coyote granules, but I just can't tell.

Two months and still no resolution? Maybe it's ghosts....they do exist. Move or get used to it....guess you are used to it. If something is actually there you don't want to kill it in the walls. If it's quiet at night it's probably not there. It's eating something, so it's getting in and out. And if you had the snake you wouln't have mice.

Okay so I did some research, the size and shape of those things, if it is feces, is more likely to be from a cockroach than a mouse.

It looks like mice droppings to me. Sort or has the look of rice grains only black in color.

Did the bombs, smelled like sulfur. That was a week ago. Hear them actively today. Seems often to coincide with birds chirping outside. I don't know if it's related. Never hear any chirping in the wall. Maybe it just wakes them up. Back to square one.

Would it be less shameful if it was a lot of drywall work? Because I don't see the point of doing a little unless I am committed to possibly doing a LOT, considering it's in 3-4 places now, and the precise area is not pinpointable.

If you guys don't have anything else, that's fine. I know that's an option, it just doesn't sound very sensible all things considered.

does it sound sensible to go almost three months with nary a qualified guess as to what is going on?

I'd be more concerned about animals in my wall doing damage more than the damage I would do getting em out. Drywall work is easier/cheaper than replacing insulation/electrical/framing/etc.

That's just me though. I saw what looked like a wet ceiling once. Against advice, I just smashed a hammer through the ceiling to see where it was coming from.

leaky radiator pipe, glad I didn't wait.

Do you see a cat walking around outside. You get a cat in there it will tell you exactly where there at in the wall. Either by scratching the wall or sitting by the section of the wall. Does a neighbor have a cat you can borrow. When the cat locates immediately open the wall.

If the cat disappears then kindly refer back to post # 53. This time pay more attention to the video

What is shameful is that your still putting up with what ever is in those walls.

I think the reality is that your going to have to open up several stud bays to clean out what ever is in there.

Time to stop procrastinating and get out the hammer....
