I live in a country house and the basement is insulated from the ground floor with pink insulation. Over the years, there have been several mouse infestations in the basement, between the suspended ceiling and the mineral wool. They dug holes in the wool and left a lot of feces. I would like to know if their traces are toxic for humans, and would you recommend changing the insulation?
