” I hear scratching in my walls!! what could it be?” and I would calm them by asking key questions and determining the culprit.
More often then not in Wichita it is a Squirrel that has entered and made a nest in the attic, soffit or even your chimney! Squirrel removal by trapping with humane traps are a key way to start the eviction process. Once the squirrel has been removed it is important to have an exclusion or repair work done to prevent future occurrences from happening.

Wichita Squirrels belong to a large family of small or medium-sized rodents called the Sciuridae. The family includes tree squirrels, ground squirrels, chipmunks, marmots (including woodchucks), flying squirrels, and prairie dogs. Kansas Squirrels are indigenous to the Americas, Eurasia, and Africa and have been introduced to Australia. The earliest known squirrels date from the Eocene and are most closely related to the mountain beaver and to the dormouse among living species.
Squirrels in Wichita are one of the leading causes of attic fires due to their chewing of electrical wiring. Make sure if you hear noises in your walls, crawlspace or attic space that you have a trained professional inspect it. Please remember that pest control companies in Wichita are not always trained to handle wildlife issues, and that wildlife technicians have to be licensed by the state to handle most issues.
