Have You Been Hearing Noises in Your Walls or Attic?
Part 4 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:
Opossums: These opportunistic marsupials often live in human structures, under sheds and houses, and they also often live in attics. Just as with the other animals, a female with young is most likely to choose to live in the attic. Possums, equipped with their opposable thumbs, are great climbers, and can easily get onto the roof to their entry point. Possums do not live in attics as frequently as these other animals, but it does happen from time to time.
If you are experiencing problems with opossums, 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 wild animals.
