You may have heard it before: that tell-tale scurrying sound in the attic, or eerie scraping sound in the crawl space. Both indicators that an animal may be in your home. Careful listening – or better yet, a little investigating – can help you determine if you’re dealing with squirrels, birds, raccoons, bats, mice or other critters.
If an unwanted animal of any size is in your house, then you’re dealing with a pest. If the invasive animal is a cat or dog, then you can call your city’s Animal Control to help manage the problem. Many people think these city employees will help with any kind of animal intrusion, but usually they are only able to respond to calls concerning domestic pets. For all other creatures, you need to handle the problem yourself, or call wildlife removal experts.

Spring is a popular time for animals to enter your home, as they’re seeking places to build nests. Summer can also make your house attractive, as it offers a cool, shaded, safe escape from harsh heat. Summer rains and storms can also drive outdoor creatures to the safety of your indoors.
