Have You Been Hearing Noises in Your Walls or Attic?
Part 3 of Wild Animals In Your Walls or Attic
The most common type of complaint in the field of wild animal control is that of animals living in the attic. People hear the scratching, chewing, scampering, and walking noises up in the attic, often at night, and thus call a professional. If you do hear noises in the attic, it’s probably one of five species:
Raccoons: Raccoons frequently break into attics in search of safe shelter. As with the squirrels, it’s often a female raccoon who is looking for a safe place in which to raise a litter of young. Raccoonsare very strong, and can rip open the roof or soffit in order to get in. If you hear heavy walking noises in your attic, it’s probably raccoons. If you hear chattering or the squealing of young, it’s probably a litter of baby raccoons. March through June is usually baby time.
If you are experiencing problems with raccoons, give your local Animal Management experts a call. Though not common, these animals can carry rabies which can be fatal to any mammal. Another problem is getting these animals out of tight areas. Sometimes their young can be in very precarious places and difficult to remove.
At Minnesota Wild Animal Management, we are experienced and trained with the removal of these rodents.
