Pest Control/Possible Cockroach Droppings?

I think what you have is roaches. If you had deer mice you would notice more droppings and other issues as well. With the deer mice droppings when ref during to pepper that would be the general shape and size. 1 out of four of your droppings was round, it was just a funny shaped dropping for the roach. It happens. Though roaches are associated with respiratory issues and allergies when it comes to diseases its fairly low. There are no outbreaks of disease in America caused by roaches. However I understand your not in America? Either way, keep all food out of that area, no snacks for the kids. At least until you can start the process of eliminating them. Good luck!
