What Does Pack Rat Scat Look Like?

To a pack rat, their scat is not just a simple waste material — pack rat droppings are a part of the animals' nest-building procedure, in which they retrieve various lengths of sticks and use pack rat feces to stick them together. Finally, they spray their viscous urine to act as a sealant.

These debris piles, called middens, are so durable that paleontologists examine them to learn more about the distant past. This means that pack rat feces are around for a long time once they are left behind.

Signs of Infestation

These pests, also known as woodrats, are likely to live and deposit their droppings just about anywhere. This includes locations that are near homes, like attics, sheds, and even vehicles.

Hazards of Pack Rat Feces

Pack rat droppings can be full of health-compromising bacteria. When middens are built near human dwellings, there is an increased risk of exposure. Because these rodents rarely travel more than 20 yards from their nests, one is probably nearby if a property owner sees a pack rat.
