Do you hear animal sounds in your attic at night? Do you fear that it might be rats, raccoons, or perhaps birds in there? You might panic at first, but with time, the unusual noises might not bother you at all. However, you should realize that living comfortably in your house is the number one priority.
Furthermore, to ensure the safety of the people living in the house, including your family and children, you should look for the best ways to remove such animals from your attic humanely. It’s not just the health concerns but the risks of damages to your house. Rats can tear away at walls, floors, ceilings, and more. Here’s what you can do when you hear any animal in your attic.
Firstly check for signs to confirm. These signs include excrement, damages to the parts of the attic, strange noises, rumbling sounds, squeaking noises, and more. Here are the preventative measures that you can take:
Keep your distance from any animal that is present in your attic. Most importantly, if you have children in the house, make sure that the animals in the attic do not enter the house. Let your children keep their distance to prevent any health concerns.
In case any animal gets loose in the house, use any place as a shelter to avoid direct contact, especially if it’s raccoons or bats. They can transfer germs and bacteria.
On the other hand, you can turn the lights on and leave all the entry points to the house open. So, if the animals came into your house by accident, they will be in search of an exit. Following that, you should block any potential re-entry points, which might be the original entry points for the animals to your attic in the first place.
Conclusively, it is best to keep the distance no matter how confident you feel in removing the animal. Make sure to harm yourself and others in the house with you. Furthermore, sometimes animal rights organizations intervene for humane removal, which might put you in distress.
If you are looking to remove the animals residing in your house’s attic, you should only look for the professionals who do it the right way. You can handle such a task yourself. However, if the problem keeps recurring, the animals don’t leave, or you require additional help, contacting professionals at Baystate Wildlife should be your first priority.
