If you are hearing noises at night, chances are there are unwanted animal visitors in your attic. Mice, birds, raccoons, squirrels and bats are all animals that can cause problems in attics. Attic Damages Raccoons can quickly destroy and damage attic insulation and wiring. They are strong and curious creatures. Chewed or damaged wires can create fire danger and contaminated insulation presents a health hazard. Critter Control has services to remove damaged insulation, decontaminate and deodorize your attic and replace insulation. Wildlife In The Attic There are several reasons that you may only be hearing sporadic or occasional noises in your attic. Squirrels may nest in trees during the day, but move to a cozier attic or crawlspace at night or during bad weather. As the weather heats up, you may stop hearing attic noises during the day as animals tend to lay low during the hottest parts of a summer day resulting in less activity and fewer noises. Squirrels, mice and raccoons will become active again at night and you may start hearing scratching noises in the ceiling, or the sound of scurrying feet. As bat populations increase due to reproduction, young bats will work their way into living spaces seeking more space. Squeaking and rustling sounds in your attic are good indicators of a bat infestation. Critter Control of Kansas City has techniques to exclude bats from your living space, while protecting you and our bat populations.
