You have been a tremendous help for me in the past with a major carpenter bee infestation that I took care of back in 2000 when I bought my house (75 holes in the house in the trim boards, some galleries 2' long, each one filled in by me on a ladder with a steel wool plug, Minwax 2-part wood patch, and paint - haven't had a problem since).
Now I have a new issue....something has been coming on my front porch every night just to mess with my head. The droppings look like a rodent's so I tried my Have a Hart and a couple of snap traps. No success. Whatever this thing is, it has the nerve to crap on the snaps! I hope the photo URL works so you can see what the evidence is.
What is this critter and what is the recommended way to get rid of it? Is it a toad? A bat? I have no idea.
