One of the regular calls that we receive is someone experiencing scratching noise in the walls or ceiling of their Michigan home. Sometimes, they have tried everything from applying mouse poision, such as Decon, or inspecting the attic themselves. Once they discover that the rodenticide does not work, they give us a call.
Not all noises are caused by wildlife. Many people have homes that make noises...and they also have a wildlife problem.
When bats make noises, generally people report scratching noise occurs in one area of the home. It could occur during both the Summer months and Winter months. Sometimes, they hear flapping noises too.
Thankfully, we have a solution to exclude the bat colony from your home.
Other scratching noise complaints are found to be due to vinyl siding blowing in the wind, tree branches rubbing on home, heating ducts expanding, siding expanding in sun, or water hammer noises in pipes. Please consider these possible causes of noises.
