Clawing and scratching within the wall can be a sign that you have a wild animal within and it may be stuck or simply making a home within your home. It is important that you handle such an issue with urgency so as to avoid even bigger problems in the future. There are lots of wild animals that prove to be amazing climbers. There are however some homes that have a dry wall that it’s slick and it can be rather hard for the animals to climb out. If the problem is not handled, the animal can actually chew or scratch its way out of your wall and enter the home if at all it is stuck.
You need to note that animals such as bats can make use of very tiny spaces and may be actually roosting with the wall. If the animal is stuck within your wall and you do not get the issue handled, then it may very well die and the odor that comes from decaying flesh can be really unpleasant.
