Rocks Popping Up on Mulch

When I go to weed my mulched areas, I keeping seeing these somewhat crystal-like pebbles, that seem to pop up sporadically. I'm assuming it has something to done with our very hard clay-like soil and wet conditions, but I'm definitely no expert.

What kind of scat is this?

If I am in the wrong place please excuse me. Please point me in the right direction if that's the case. I am finding one of these in the morning and another one in the evening over the last week. It is on the patio behind my kitchen. I have included a shot of the patio chair near it for scale. There is a lawn - and then a canal about 60 ft. away. What other info would you need to help me indentify them?

What bit me

I have had red bumps just pop up on my arms randomly and there is a marble size knot under the skin they only itch if you start to scratch them. They stay about three days and go away and then there’s another one somewhere else on my arms

I had to remove 2 small sago palms from my yard. I first cut the palm leaves off. I had several in my hands and threw them in the trash. I now have red blotches and sometimes itchy, where the tips of the leaves pricked my arms. From my wrists up to my shoulders. And I didn't realize they must have hit my face a little. One of the red blotches has like a raised white bubble in the middle though it is not soft. I've had them for about a week. Only a few seem to have gotten smaller. I don't know anything about a sago palm except I know they are poisonous to animals, should I be concerned about this and see a doctor? Thank you!

Broadcast ant killer that doesn't kill other insects

Good day! Do you know of an ant killer (fire and/or other) that won't also kill the other insects in the yard? The birds love the other insects, and I love the birds. I have looked all over but can't find anything that I'm confident will do the job. I have about an acre to treat, so I'd like to use a broadcast spreader to put it out. Thanks!

Pruning roses that are growing from a base that is about 2 feet tall.

We have 3 roses growing from these trunks. I want to prune them. Do I do it now or wait for early spring? We have had them a couple of years. The first year they were loaded with roses. They seem to be having less blooms each year. They were called Knock out roses that don't have to be cut off after they bloom, but I always cut them off instead of waiting for them to fall off. Is that wrong to do? I feed them with rose food from a local nursery in the summer.
