Ringtail Possum Pellets
Cylindrical pellets that are typically smaller than those of the Common Brushtail Possum are produced by Ringtail Possums. The pellets are typically found in 3-6 groups, have a granulated surface, and are usually rounded at both ends. The colour of pellets varies with diet.
Mouse droppings look identical to rat droppings, but when it comes to detection, scale is the main differentiator. Generally, mouse droppings are 0.2cm to 0.6cm in length and mimic dark rice grains.
Bushtail Possum Poo
Due to their large range of diets, Brushtail Possums produce cylindrical pellets (droppings) that differ in size and colour. Possum poo is typically discovered as a collection of individual pellets or clustered into clumps or chains (from hair or plant material ingested).
Large Cockroach Droppings
Strong dark droppings left by massive cockroaches are cylindrical in shape and have ridges on the side.
Black Rat Droppings
Black rats with one or both ends that are pointed create narrow cylindrical pellets. The color of the pellet varies with the diet, but it is typically dark brown or black.
German Cockroach Droppings
German cockroach drops look like ground pepper or coffee grounds and are commonly found where they come together.
