What animal could be in the attic? This is a question that is best answered by a Wildlife Specialist who has training and experience in removal and relocation of nuisance animals. With the experience they have they will be able to look at the damage and mess the animal has made including the feces and determine what animal is in the attic.

There are a few tips that can help you to figure out what animal could be in the attic? These are just tips and do not replace a full evaluation from a Wildlife Specialist. There are a few different animals that can make their way into a home and create some trouble there. If you have seen the animal entering your attic you are lucky to know what is in your home. Most people only hear noises or can smell the animal.

Depending on the noises you can normally determine if you are dealing with a larger animal like a raccoon or a smaller animal like a squirrel. A raccoon is normally heard a night or during the dark hours, they are heavier and move slower than a smaller animal. Sometimes the sound of a raccoon has been described as sounding like footsteps. There are times that a raccoon will be active during the day, this would be in a situation where the animal you are dealing with is a mother and is out during the day looking for food for her babies. Another time that you may encounter them during the day is if they are ill. Another animal that is normally easy to spot from the sounds is a squirrel, squirrels are often heard near first light or during the day while they are looking for food. Squirrels can also be set apart in that they constantly chew, some homeowners have said that they hear them in the walls and nonstop chewing noises. Chewing noises can also be a sign of a rat problem. Either of these situations should be handled by a trained Wildlife Specialist to ensure that there are no injuries or spread of illness through handling of the animal. If you are still wondering what animal could be in the attic? The very best thing that you can do for your home is to get an evaluation done.
