For many evenings our daughter was hearing sounds above her room. It turned out there was a raccoon in the attic. We called Humane Wildlife Control and they were very knowledge and prompt. A one way trap door was installed where the soffit was pushed away by the raccoon and other areas on the roof were screened off for prevention purposes. A week later the one way trap door was removed and replaced with a wire mesh to prevent the re-entry of the raccoon.
