Noises in the Attic – Critter Control Tallahassee

What’s that Sound?

Shh. What’s that noise? Rustling, chittering, and scratching sounds from up above may indicate a rodent problem in your attic.

Attic Infestation

Attics provide welcome shelter from the elements for rodents. From running to fighting, the activities of squirrels, mice, and rats can be noisy, and when they’re residing in your attic, you are likely to hear it. As these critters scurry about, you may hear the scuffling, gnawing, squeaks, and other vocals of these unwelcome house guests.

If you’re able to easily and safely access your attic, take a look around for other signs of infestation, such as droppings. Mouse feces measure about 0.5 cm. Rat and squirrel droppings are larger, at 1.5 to 2 cm.

Rodents and Home Damage

In addition to the unease that these sounds cause, the underlying cause is a potential hazard to your home. Rodents chew incessantly. They chew through insulation, wiring, drywall, flooring, and other building materials. This can lead to fire hazards and other costly and dangerous damage to your home.
