Of all of the different kinds of wild animals that
can gain access into your home, especially the
walls and attic, the one that you will find that
is quite common is the squirrel. Besides rats and
mice, squirrels are the most common kind of wild
animal that is able to get into a person's home.
The reasons behind this are quite simple. Because
a squirrel is able to get onto your roof, climb
across wires leading into your home, and maneuver
freely along the ground, it has the greatest
ability of being able to access into your home.
This can mean that it can easily find a way and if
you have some kind of crack, gap, whole, loose
board, or other area that would provide the
perfect entryway for this rodent.
Because of how small these animals are, you may
find it difficult to know if one is inside your
home. However, the truth is that a squirrel will
still make a number of different kinds of noises
that will tell you whether it has gain access into
your house. If you are wanting to know what kind
of noises and sounds squirrels make when they are
living in your house, here are a few that you need
to pay attention to.
The first of these is that you should hear them
scurrying about. If you have ever watched a
squirrel running in your yard, you notice that
these critters run rather quickly and a hopping
sort of motion. If they are in your attic or
inside the wall area of your home, this kind of
noise should be easily distinguishable to you and
give them away right away.
You will also likely hear a lot of different kinds
of scratching noises as they attempt to get out of
the walls or further into your home by trying to
dig their way through the ceiling of your attic
area. This is one of the most common things that
squirrels will do once they have gain access into
a home, because they are looking to benefit from
all of the other parts of your house that could
provide them with food or shelter.
If there is one squirrel that has gotten into your
home, it would not be surprising to find that
there are more. While this is kind of disturbing,
it also may be an advantage for you as well.
Squirrels like to wrestle and chase after one
another, and it should not be long before you hear
this battle going on and know that there are a
couple, if not more that are living in your house.
These are the primary noises that you need to
listen for. Because squirrels are out at about the
same time of day as yourself, you need to pay
extra special attention during the day if you are
concerned that one of these rodents has gain
access into your house.
