Noises from the attic can be scary and dangerous to your family. However, it’s relatively easy to determine if it’s a squirrel or something else. Squirrels are active during the daytime hours. You will hear them running while coming and going from your attic to find food and return. If your noises are coming later in the night then you might have bats, rats, mice or even a raccoon living upstairs.
All wildlife should be removed as soon as possible because of the potential dangers they can cause. Squirrels, mice, and rats love to chew through wires. Chewing through wires can cause fires or electric problems in your home that can cost a lot of money to fix.
