This article is a little different and bit usual. But this is actually a very relevant and interesting topic. Because green mice droppings do exist, and people have found them before. But wait, how or why could mice leave green droppings behind?
I’ve not seen green mice poop myself, but I have heard from people who have. It’s not because the offending mouse has been eating a lot of green foods like spinach or beans. Neither is it some kind of rare, exotic animal.
I covered how to identify mouse droppings in another article. If you’re sure that it’s mice producing them. Because You have been finding additional evidence or seeing the mice, you at least know what the next steps are.
However, this green poop might not be such a surprise if you already knew you had mice and you’ve laid poison. Because the green coloring is actually the result of some certain poisons.
I’ve said it many times, and I will say it again – I don’t condone the use of rodent bait, rodent killing, or pest exterminating to remove mice from a home. I do however appreciate that some people have unwanted mice in their homes. But I strongly recommend humane traps to deal with them.
This is the most common poison that causes green mice droppings. Its a deadly poison that works quickly and gives the mice a painful death.
This is a humane mouse trap that I recommend using if you’re trying to catch mice in your home.
Trixie Humane Mouse Trap – 6 x 4.5 x 17 cm
This tap works by luring the mouse inside. You can add something like peanut butter in there which mice absolutely love. It does not kill the mouse. It simply traps them inside for you to find and release the mice somewhere safe and far away from your home.
I’ve used this kind of trap before and it worked a treat. Remember to check the trap as often as possible to see if there is a mouse in there. Don’t further stress the mouse when you catch one. Handle them very carefully.
There are different types of mice that may be venturing into your home. The house mouse and field mouse are the two most common species. It’s worth being aware what they look like and what to expect. If you find a different breed it may be worth getting it identified.
Green Mice Droppings but No Mice
The result of eating the green poison is that it will kill the mice. If you are finding the green poop without seeing mice then there is a good chance the mice have died somewhere else.
The evidence of mice coming into your home should reduce. If it’s been your mission to rid yourself of mice you could see this evidence as a good sign that it’s working. They are eating the bait and it’s only a matter of time.
