ImageHOW DO I KNOW IF I HAVE RACCOONS BATS OR SQUIRRELS IN MY ATTIC?

If you are hearing chewing in your  walls and or attic it is likely that you have squirrels. It could be mice, it  could be both as they will reside together. Difference being, mice sound like a  light tapping just enough to make you crazy. Squirrels will sound like a hammer  drill on low. Another difference is, usually squirrels work their way down. The  longer the squirrels have been there, the more holes they’ve had a chance to  make. Mice will work their way up. Mouse droppings in the basement, only a few.  Mouse droppings found in the attic, a problem.
There are a few key questions that an  animal removal company
would ask when you call  them:
1. What noises are you hearing, running chewing,  crying?
Answers will define what kind of animal  it is.
If you are hearing running it’s probably a  raccoon. If you are hearing chewing and scampering it’s  probably squirrels. If you are hearing chewing that you really  have to listen for it’s probably mice.Squirrels have to chew/gnaw other wise their  teeth grow too long and they won’t be able to eat. They don’t really care what  they chew on. They will have one exit hole that you can see. To make you think  that this is the only one. They will have a bunch more hidden  holes.

2. Where are you hearing these noises?
Answers will tell where the animal is nesting and  the path it is taking to get there. Which can help to find the hidden  holes.
3. How long have you being hearing and or having  this problem?
Answers will inform us as to how long the animal  problem has been there. From that you can figure out how many squirrels,  raccoons, mice, bats etc. are there.
4. Where you are you calling from?
Answers will let us know how to bait the traps.  Letting us know what there diets has probably been.
The most common areas that squirrels will get into  your house are:

 
The corner of your roof is one of  their most common spots. Lots of times if you go to the corner of your roof  where the shingles meet you will be able to pull it up an there will be a hole  underneath.
The side small vents are never  screened and if they are they’re plastic. Squirrels will chew right through  them. Once in they will chew through the pipe in they are in the attic.
Or if you  check your roof vents you might think that it’s just loose.
When  actually, the top has been chewed
 
away  acting like a trap door.
 
Where the roof meets a peak. If you  have vents at the side of your house they can push the screen out and walk right  in.
 
 

and then it’s their home not  yours!!!
You should  cap your vents and chimneys as a preventative maintenance, please get a  professional to do it! You may have animals in your chimney or attic and not  know. By trapping them in you could cause serious damage to  everything!
