If you hear noises in your attic, but don't know what animal is causing it, look at the clues: type of noise, entry hole, feces, footprints, and more. The first indicator of an animal problem in the attic is the noise. You may hear scratching or thumping, or scittering or nuts rolling around or even vocal noises. But you still don't know what type of animal or animals are up there! It's very helpful to know what type of critters are living in your attic, because the approach to solving the problem varies greatly depending on the type of animal.
