Notes:

1. Sorry to send this one. I am getting animal droppings on my patio. About 2-3 a night. I never see or hear anything but I can not figure out what it is, always seems to be on the cement or the flagstone. Any ideas?
2. I am getting this yellowing and the zuccinni seems to die on the vine. Right next to it is perfectly healthy?
3. On the zuccinni I had the little spider like insects. They fell right off after I bumped it a bit. I have use Sevin on it (same as the yellowing photo as well)

    I believe your animal droppings might be from a toad. They often sit near doors or windows at night to catch insects attracted to the light spill.

    I think the first poster nailed the dropping ID!
    see http://morningbrayfarm.com/2010/11/03/who-knew-poop-was-such-a-popular-search-term/

    If you want to confirm, gently mash one and see if it glitters in sunlight (from insect scales).

    Thanks, that makes sense on the droppings, we have at least 2 toads that seem to like/visit our patio!
