Observe Raccoon Poops’ Shape and Size
Raccoon’s poops have the appearance like small dog’s poops as both are tube-shaped. They are normally dark in color and their diameter will be of nickel or a dime. You will find their ends blunt. The droppings will discolor and change shape with the passage of time.
Observe the Filling of Raccoon Poops
Put on rubber gloves and inspect it inside out. Raccoons have very poor digestive system, therefore, their poops contain undigested seeds and peels of the seasonal fruits and vegetables.
Look for Other Evidences
Attempt to get some other evidences that raccoons are ruling your area in order to verify that what you have found are the real raccoon droppings. There may raccoons’ hair on the tree barks or fences around your property where these annoying creatures have been climbing. Racoons frequently wear out the land at the base of the big trees where their den will be possibly located. Moreover, the overturned trash cans and other naughty activities often point out the presence of raccoons in your area.
Search for Raccoons’ Latrine
Look for the raccoons’ latrine areas where they keep visiting and drop their fresh poops on the top of the old dried ones. You can easily find the raccoons’ latrine along fence lines, roofs, unsealed attics, base of trees, and woodpiles etc.
