Look for signs of nesting, such as leaves piled in, and furr. Also around an area, you may suspect is a den, search for signs of scat, or feces. Animals will leave lots of piles around den areas, to mark there territory.

Loose dirt close to a hole in the ground is indicative of a burrowing animal – usually a rat or a woodchuck. Other animals, such as chipmunks and squirrels may clear the dirt and try to hide their burrows in the ground.
