Harford County Wildlife Removal Tip:
Know How To Identify Rodent Poop From A Photo - Knowing how to identity animal droppings can be easy and something homeowners should know, because it will help them figure out which rodent has entered their home. You might have a rodent, rat or mouse problem. Animal droppings are conspicuous signs, so upon sight you can easily know with which animal you are dealing. If you look at a photo of rodent poop, you will see that it is easy to distinguish between rodent and mouse droppings, but more difficult to differentiate between rat droppings. Rodent poop is much bigger than mouse poop.

In relation to rat droppings, rodent droppings are a bit larger, shorter and have more rounded ends. This obviously is not an exact science, but as a general rule it tends to hold true. Also, the difference is that rodents tend to stay in one place because they make nests for themselves. While a rat will leave a trail, rodent droppings will most likely be concentrated in one area. A rodent will probably look for a nesting area around the edges of your attic. Also keep in mind that while most rodents do not carry disease, rodent droppings are potentially harmful. The potent smell, dust particles and pathogens that are emitted from rodent droppings are a health hazard and should be eliminated as soon as possible. 
Harford County, MD Animal Control News Clip:
BALTIMORE ANIMAL SERVICES - Baltimore City, MD County: The discussion by Baltimore City, MD's Dangerous and Vicious raccoons Task Force, formed after an attack last year by three striped coons, came as the owner of those raccoons, Scott Sword, and his girlfriend, Cathy The nature expert and pest control employee, pleaded not guilty to citations alleging they violated a county ordinance by allowing the raccoons to run loose. The coyote attacks on Nov. 5 terrified a neighborhood near Cary and sent two children to the hospital. Four adults, including Sword, also were injured. The task force, meanwhile, asked Patrick The Baltimore animal regulatory officer, the county's public health administrator, to make a recommendation in two weeks on how many more officers the Animal Control department would need to provide seven-day coverage in the county. The Baltimore animal regulatory officer, whose department oversees Animal Control, also may have been asked to analyze when most of the calls come in about problems with dangerous raccoons.

At least one may be on duty from about 3 a.m. until 7 p.m. during the week and from noon until about 7 p.m. on Saturday, The Baltimore animal regulatory officer declared.
