A Scurry From Above – Noises in the Attic

April 3rd, 2018

It’s morning and you are enjoying a nice hot cup of coffee and you suspect you hear something in the attic above your head. You turn down the news and then there’s nothing. A few days later the same thing happens so you tell your spouse that you’ve been hearing noises in the attic. They glance up in the attic, but everything appears as normal and they haven’t heard anything strange, so the sounds are attributed to the house moving and settling as the temperatures outside change. Two weeks later you hear scurrying and a full-blown ruckus above your head. You have a problem. You have an animal intruder! Scenarios like this one are common during the months of April and May and are most likely attributed to squirrels. Female squirrels often use attics, chimneys, soffit areas, and gutter lines as nest sites and dens to raise their young. Squirrels are active during the day and sleep at night so noises from a family of squirrels are typically heard throughout the day.

Tree squirrels breed twice a year (December-January and May-June) with 1-7 young being born in February-March and July-August. Juvenile squirrels become active as early as six to seven weeks making their presence known to homeowners. Like many young children the normally quiet mother can’t keep her litter quiet and they can often be heard scurrying, scratching, and even barking from their living quarters. Tri-State Wildlife Management must take extra precaution when excluding squirrels out of attics and other structural voids to make sure there aren’t any juveniles trapped inside.

Squirrel on Roof

Wildlife Removal Independence, KY: The weather has certainly turned much colder this week, so wild animals in Independence, KY and other neighborhoods in the greater Cincinnati area are taking advantage of the warmth that attics of homes and businesses offer. The main 3 culprits of attic-dwelling wildlife include raccoons, squirrels, and bats.

Raccoons are unpleasant house “guests”, since they not only tear apart your home to seek entry, but also they create smelly, unsanitary latrines in your attic insulation. Squirrels are also bad house “guests”, as they will chew entryways and gnaw on EVERYTHING in your attic, including rafters and electrical wires! Of course this is a major hazard, as chewed rafters can weaken the entire structure and chewed electrical wires can start a fire. If you have bats in your attic, you may not sense their presence until the spring, as they’re beginning to hibernate, but they also create unsanitary latrines and and can carry rabies, both important reasons to keep them out of your house. Squirrels and raccoons will stay active throughout the winter, the only exception being if there is a long bout of extreme weather.

All three of these wild animals are prevalent in Independence, KY as well as the rest of Northern Kentucky, Cincinnati, and Southeast Indiana. As Independence grows in human population, more neighborhoods and homes are built, while less natural habitat is available to wildlife. It’s a common misconception that wild animals suffer from neighborhood developments, while the truth is that houses and other man-made structures are much more comfortable habitats for wildlife. Of course, this is to the displeasure of the unfortunate businesses and homeowners who happen to be targeted by wildlife.  Bats, squirrels, and raccoons all take advantage of these man-made structures, especially during the colder months. They are much more comfortable spending their time in warm attic insulation as opposed to den or roost sites in nature.

There are measures that businesses and homeowners in Independence, KY can take to deter wildlife from seeking refuge in their building or home. First, habitat modification, such as keeping landscaping tidy, trees trimmed, and garbage cans and pet food inside can go a long way in keeping wildlife disinterested in your home. Unfortunately, though, with wildlife, there are never any guarantees. You may do everything right, and raccoons, squirrels, and bats may still target your home. Another measure businesses and homeowners can take to try and prevent wildlife entry is to have a wildlife home inspection.

Tri-State Wildlife Management offers thorough, affordable home inspections. You may choose to do this as a precautionary measure, or you may already suspect something has already taken up residence in your attic or home. Tri-State Wildlife Management’s technician / carpenter who performs the inspection, will identify any wildlife entries as well as weak, vulnerable areas that could become future entries. It may seem excessive to a business or homeowner that the vulnerable areas be identified, but it is actually very important; raccoons, squirrels, and bats will all attempt, usually successfully, to reenter a home even after their entry is repaired.

Once an inspection is performed on your home, Tri-State Wildlife Management will be able to tell you whether your home, as of the date of the inspection, is low risk for wildlife entry, or if there is evidence of wildlife entry or vulnerable areas. If there is evidence of wildlife entry, TSWM will suggest a removal and exclusion plan suited to fit your individual needs. As mentioned previously, wildlife will cause damage to your home once excluded if they are not removed from the area, so an exclusion only solution is really no solution at all. TSWM has a carpenter on staff that will repair areas on your home that are being used as entry points, and areas that may be susceptible to future wildlife entry. TSWM only uses wildlife grade construction materials to further deter wildlife from reentering your home. In addition, TSWM offers a variety of wildlife grade chimney caps and covers to prevent wildlife intrusion. Another common wildlife service offered by Tri-State Wildlife Management is attic clean-ups, which are usually performed when an attic has significant raccoon or bat latrines.

TSWM prides itself in being a professional, quality, full service company that will take care of you from the first phone call until your wildlife problem is solved. Call today to schedule your affordable home inspection.
