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!

    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!
