    So, I tossed some rat poison pellets under my house at this exact spot about 6 months ago. Got under there today and it looked like this grainy stuff, which was still stuck together and not loose. Also with it was this random standing liquid, part of it black and part of it with black larvae in it which was long and thin. Just curious if you guys think it’s the broken down rat poison pellets and not termite droppings. Also, any explanation for the liquid and larvae? IMG_2058.JPG IMG_2056.JPG IMG_2057.JPG

    I'm guessing the liquid is dissolved rat poison or at least, the stuff that leaches out of rat poison.
    As for the larvae, it could any bug that needs standing water to lay eggs in.

    Of course, one has ask where the water is coming from if the plastic is there to prevent moisture.
