Noises in the Attic

Noises in the attic are worrying and can be an indication that rodents or other wildlife may be living in your roof.

Attics (lofts or ceiling cavities) are ideal environments for possums, rats and mice, who damage stored items and electric cabling by gnawing and possibly causing fires. They are also ideal environments for nesting birds that can spread disease, mites and fleas.

Noises should be investigated quickly - nests and droppings become ideal breeding sites for insects, which may then carry nasty bugs and diseases into your home.

Inspect your attic and look for visible signs of habitation, commonly their droppings.
