When an animal makes its way into your attic you might feel a few different emotions: fear at the potential health risks they pose for your family, frustration at having to deal with damages and noises coming from your ceiling, and determination to get those pests out quickly. Luckily, wildlife removal services can deal with critter removal from your attic.
Before you call the pros, though, there are a few ways to make sure that those noises you hear are, in fact, animals in your attic. We cover that and a few tips for getting animals out of your attic here.
Some signs that you have animals in your attic include:
If you spot any of these signs in your house, it’s time to start looking for solutions to get them out.
You shouldn’t try to remove an animal from your attic on your own. Not only can it be dangerous if you aren’t professionally trained in animal removal, but you may also be breaking the law if you try to remove certain animals on your own. With that said, you can try a few home remedies to remove squirrels from your attic, and other critters for that matter, by scaring them out.
To start, it’s all about disrupting the animals’ comfort. That means taking away their quiet, cozy places. To do that, you can play loud music near the ceiling of your home to scare the animals out. Or, you can place a bright light in the attic as long as going up in the attic won’t pose an immediate danger to you. You may even try to put oil-soaked cotton balls or oil-filled cups filled with scents like mint or apple cider vinegar that bother the animals.
These steps might help get a single animal out of your house. However, if there’s a possibility of infestation, these efforts won’t solve your problems.
