        Hiya Guys and Dolls,

        I am absolutely petrified. I am hoping someone can help me or shed some light on what to do. There is a noise coming from somewhere late at night. It is a critter either in the walls or the attic. Now i am afraid of even a mouse. But this is not a mouse. I can here it chewing and literally clicking as it walks across the ceiling above me.

        I can not tell if it is in the walls or attic. But it is BIG. Last night i heard shredding of paper that makes me think whatever it is, they are making a nest. I do not know what to do. Nor know what it is. It only comes out at night. During the day there is not a peep of a sound.

        I am hoping someone can offer a suggestion as to what it could be and what i can do. If it is a rat i will die omg i will die. But i am thinking it sounds bigger than that. Any clues as to what could be lurking and what i can do please advise.

        i'll bet racoon. look outside for paw prints, probably climbing up the downspout. look for holes in the soffit, they can squeeze in a small hole (softball size)

        Pests leave residue trails. A rodent a small one, a large pest a wide trail.  A quick remedy would be moth balls.

        Thank so much for your replies. I looked up the raccoon link and boy oh boy can they cause damage.

        Not sure if i should call a exterminator or try a home remedy. Have you heard any success with the moth balls Joseph?

        Sounds scary that's for definite Lips. 

        Could it be a rat or an owl or bats?

        Either way, I certainly would call pest control.  Good luck and let us know how it goes.

        possum?  They move around a lot at night.

        german cockroaches?  They sound like scraping/tearing at the sheetrock.

        I know you don't want to hear it's a rat.  But put some rat bait in your attic if you can.

        Yes.  You're going to need quite a few moth balls placed in places you think the pest is.  Look for dark places you think a pest of that size could hide.

        I don't think it is rats after reading the link on raccoons. It basically said that rats "scurry" across the room. This is definitely clicking across the floor like paw with claws. I don't know how i get in these predicaments.

        I just hope it doesn't run in the house some where. I will think i will definitely have to call an exterminator to get to the bottom of it.

        I wonder if the critter leaves during the day? I would think so to eat!

        Lips, this is a no brainer. Heres what you do, (and it sounds as if you have a rat, and a decent size one at that). You go to your local gunsmith, purchase a double barrel shot gun, I prefer Benneli, please refer to example 1
