Signs of Animal Presence in the Attic
What types of animals can live and create havoc in your attic? The most problematic attic dwelling animals are probably squirrels and raccoons. That’s because they see attics as a perfect place to make their nests. They will actually remove large amounts of attic insulation and gnaw structural wood while making these nests. Other critters that are very attractive to attics include snakes, opossums, bats, mice, rats, and birds. All of these should make you want to contact someone to do immediate animal in attic removal.
Animals that live in your attic may go undetected because they do their damage quietly and spread it out over a long period of time. There are, however, usually some warning signs that you have an animal living in your attic. These include:
- The presence of wires that have been chewed
- A foul odor or smell. Many times, this will be an ammonia type smell that results from large amounts of animal urine being present
- The presence of animal feces in one or more parts of your attic or home
- You may hear scratching sounds during the night coming from your attic because most attic dwelling creatures are nocturnal predators
None of these signs of an animal’s presence in your attic are good and they really necessitate animal in attic removal.
How Does Animal in Attic Removal Work?
There are varying methods to get this type of work done. Most are done in a humane manner where the animal is caught and then released. This is not possible in most cases though with animals such as mice and rats. Most animal removal services no longer use poisons so you most likely will not have to worry about that. You will have to discuss the method of removal of critters that your local animal removal company uses before you hire them. If you absolutely don’t want any harm to come to the animal that now resides in your attic, most if not all critter removal companies will accommodate you here.
Also, make sure you get an estimate upfront too because different animal removal professionals charge different prices for the level of difficulty in removing a particular type of animal. Catch and release may cost more too depending on how far an animal has to be transported before it is released.
