Do you hear scurrying or scampering noises in your attic? Maybe you hear gnawing or squeaking noises at night. It’s a sign that you have critters of some sort in your attic.
We love our homes because they provide a warm, dry, and safe place for us to live. Unfortunately, these are the same reasons squirrels, raccoons, mice, and other pests are attracted to our homes. The attic is a dark, quiet, and dry space that protects them from the elements.
If wildlife has taken up residence in your attic, call Titan Pest & Wildlife. We offer many practical, safe, and humane solutions to protect your home and family from unwanted pests.
Here are answers to some common questions people ask about pests and wildlife invading their attics.
What Kind of animals live in attics?
We find many types of animals in attics, but the most common ones include squirrels, raccoons, bats, rats, and mice.
What do animals in the attic sound like?
Hearing strange noises in your attic is typically the first sign that you have an infestation. What noises you hear will depend on the type of animal up there. Scurring and scampering noises generally indicate squirrels, raccoons, or rodents. Crying noises during the day are typically heard when a mother raccoon has her babies. Baby raccoons are very vocal and can easily be heard. Fluttering noises mean birds, but if heard at night likely indicate bats.
Will rodents leave an attic on their own?
No, rodents and other wildlife will not go away on their own. Even if they do seemingly move out, it is temporary at best. In the hot summer months, conditions in the attic can get too hot and force them out, but they’ll be back. Once animals find an easily accessible place to live, they’ll keep returning.
What should you do if you have animals in your attic?
Contact a wildlife removal service if you have animals in your attic. A professional will educate you on the situation, walk you through the removal process, answer any questions or concerns, prevent any future infestations, and clean and restore your attic.
