If you have recently begun hearing sounds in your attic or coming from inside the walls of your Connecticut home, that means that some type of wild animal has found a way into your house looking for shelter. Sometimes animals stay because they are comfortable, and sometimes they get stuck in walls and are unable to escape.
Animals can cause problems with the noises they make and the waste they leave behind. They can also cause damage to your house by chewing and scratching. If you hear noises inside your house, you may be able to figure out what type of animal is causing them.
Sounds You May Hear Coming from Your Attic or Walls
If you hear scratching and squeaking sounds coming from your walls, you may have a bat problem. Bats find their way into homes through small holes and can get stuck in walls and become disoriented. You will probably hear scratching and squeaking noises at night since bats are nocturnal. Bats often live in colonies in attics, where they can leave behind large amounts of guano, or droppings.
Birds enter houses looking for places to build nests and sometimes get trapped in attics or walls. If a bird is inside your house, you may hear chirping or scratching noises, or you may hear it hitting its surroundings with its wings. You will most likely hear these sounds in the early morning.
If you hear loud noises coming from your attic in the middle of the night, you probably have raccoons living there. You may hear them running around or scratching drywall.
Squirrels often live in attics. You may hear them running, jumping, or scratching during the day. They make quite a bit of noise when they enter a house or leave to look for food.
What to Do If a Wild Animal Is Living in Your House
If you hear running, scratching, or other types of sounds coming from your attic or walls, you have one or more wild animals living inside your house. Wildlife can cause a significant amount of damage by scratching, chewing, and leaving their waste behind. You should have the animals removed as soon as possible to prevent damage to your home.
