Animal Noises in the Attic and Walls

 

Lady with her hand to her ear listening for something

Very often, odd noises in the walls or ceilings are the first sign of an animal problem.

"I hear an animal in my attic or wall."

We get a lot of call like that, especially in the late summer and early fall. And truthfully, if it weren't for the seriousness of the subject, these calls would be pretty amusing. People can be pretty funny and creative when they're trying to imitate the animal noises they've been hearing.

But hearing animal noises in the attic is no laughing matter. Animals living in your attic or wall voids can create all kinds of health and safety risks.

 

Animals in the Attic and Walls

There are quite a few animals who commonly take up residence in the attics, walls, and other structural voids of homes, office buildings, and other structures. Although they may seem harmless, all of these animals can cause problems that can include diseases, structural damage, and fires.

 

Trapping and Controlling Animals in Attics and Walls

Safe, effective removal of animals in the attic, like all humane animal control, consists of several steps. In the case of attic animals, these steps are:

  1. Identify the animal. Knowing the animal you're dealing with, its habits, and its food preferences is vital to effective control

  2. Identify entry, exit, and travel routes. This helps in setting traps most effectively, as well serving as a blueprint for repairs.

  3. Trap and remove animals from the attic or wall void, and use exclusion techniques to keep animals out of the attic. The exact methods used vary with the specie of animal living in the attic.

  4. Repair the animal damage. This may involve sealing, replacing shingles or siding, closing holes and gaps, and replacing insulation.

 

Animals in the attic or wall voids can be dangerous. If you're hearing animal sounds coming from anywhere in your home, contact us right away. We'll send one of our professional Animal Control Specialists to inspect your property and, if necessary, suggest the best treatment to safely and humanely remove animals from your home, and perform exclusion to keep them out permanently.
