Please help identify droppings


Droppings have been showing up the past 4 days in the kitchen. We discover them in the morning. At first I was worried it was a mouse, but this morning we found some droppings inside a drawer that was closed all night, leaving no opening large enough for a mouse to enter. Do the droppings look like they're from large cockroaches? Or something else?

They are mice. They get in your drawers from the back of the cabinet. Put out a couple of traps.

Yep; that be mouse turds.

They crawl up the framing in the back, and deposit those.

Another vote for mice. Just takes 1/4" opening for them to be able to enter. It's important to get rid of the food source. Plug up holes around pipes, etc.
If you can put down snap traps peanut butter mixed with bacon grease is a real mouse pleaser. Plain peanut butter will be fine by itself.
Check all your cabinets.....these guys are active while you're asleep.

Agree with the mouse consensus and eliminating food sources, but they could also be looking for nesting material in your drawers.
