If you want to get the wild animals away from the attic, you should first learn about the type of the species you have around. You can do this when you find a place that the animals use to enter in or out. When it is in the daylight, try to go in your attic and check if there are some areas where the light may be getting inside. These areas can be trouble places and you have to take a note about where they are. If you are aware of the spots, then you should wait at the dusk to see what enters. If it is a squirrel, you are going to see the mom coming home at dusk, if it is a raccoon; the mother will leave home at dusk and if it is a bat, will be leaving the home every night at dusk.
After knowing what you have, then it is going to be the time to deal with it. The animals especially these with children, they want a place that it is quiet, dark, safe and warm. To make sure that the animals leave the place, you have to make the attic to be loud, well lit, unsafe and cold so that the mom may choose to move to another place. You may achieve this when you turn on the lights, when you put the fans up and when hook up the stereo and playing the music and talk radio loud in the attic. You can also use the deterrents to ensure that the mother gets the message. When you have finished everything, you should wait since the animal may panic and will want to go away from the attic. It is important to let the mom to get her children since if it is not the case, it can destroy the chimney, siding, shingles and roof. You will have two options, you may take out the children and to put them in the towel until the mother came to get them or you may let the mother to come back to get them on her own. When you are sure the mother has taken out all the children, then you should fix the entries that it uses to enter.
