Does the dropping above look like mice/rat droppings? Found it in my furnace room. Had mice in my old house but this looks bigger. I wouldn't think rats would be possible since we live in the suburbs.

Thanks!

It's vermin of some sort. It sort of doesn't matter if it's mice or rats. BTW, rats aren't afraid of the suburbs.

I'd set some rat traps and see what shows up, but would also check the eaves, etc. to see if bats might be getting in.

I was thinking rats also due to the size, but I was hoping someone might say that it was squirrel poop or something... Never thought of bats...
Thanks for the confirmation.

rodent or bat; could be squirrel, chipmunk. hard to tell. Look for more evidence in same area. Never hurts to set traps for mice and rats, see what happens.
