#1: Not sure if this is the right forum, but some critter is in my house

Posted on 2006-07-19 23:50:46 by I Love Lucy

It has a medium high-pitched, short chirp or cheep, one-time, stops a
bit then repeats, all times of the day or night then stops for lengthy
periods. I thought chipmunk, but they are usually more repetitive
vocally when they get going. I can't pinpoint where this is, I have a
cat so it is probably hiding, suspect the heat ducts but not sure
because the sound seems to alternate between the dining room and spare
bedroom, kitchen or back hall, it is hard to track the sound. This has
been going on for about a week now. I thought I might be hearing
things, but my daughter was here and heard it and asked what it was.

I bought a havahart live trap for smallish creatures, had a dickens of a
time getting it set, daughter figured out the final step, and loaded it
with sunflower seeds and a peanut. Nothing has happened yet.

I'll try to be more quiet. But could you leave out some peanut butter and

&gt;

Since there are many various methods of 'trapping' critters, you need to
identify what it is first. Ask a friend and have one (who seems
knowledgeable in these matters) come over to help identify it. Then you can
ask for the trap (or other method of removal) at the local hardware store.

I don't have many friends, and the ones I have I doubt would know. That
means animal control. Don't want to call them - yet. They get here and
the thing shuts up for hours with my luck.

I already bought a trap, hope it is not the wrong one. I may have put
the wrong kind of bait in it or it is just going to hide and cheep.
Hope it isn't a bat.

I'll have to find out. And what and how to bait it. It unnerves me
when people post scary messages about rabies, but ever since I killed
one years ago with a broom handle because my husband freaked out, the
little thing cried so pitifully, I could never do that again unless it
tried to harm me.

I'm worried about how it got in, if it is indeed a bat which it probably
is. There are several possible spots. Didn't have any for a couple of
years and thought I was past that.

&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt; Shouldn't be a bat in the daytime.
&gt;&gt;
&gt; It's inside the house no?

I always figure if they got in they can get out - but even in a house they
would find a hiding place and just &quot;hang&quot; during the day wouldn't they ?

&gt; &gt;&gt; &gt;&gt;
&gt; &gt;&gt; &gt; A bat.
&gt; &gt;&gt;
&gt; &gt;&gt; Yeah, see my last message. The last two a couple years ago came out
&gt; &gt;&gt; and
&gt; &gt;&gt; flew around at night, and I was able to throw a bucket over them when
&gt; &gt;&gt; they landed in the open, take them out and release them in the
&gt; &gt;&gt; morning
&gt; &gt;&gt; away from my home.
&gt; &gt;&gt;
&gt; &gt; Cool that you didn't freak out about a bat like some people seem to
&gt; &gt; do.
&gt; &gt; Bats are my friends out here where I live, they munch the mosquitoes
&gt; &gt; and
&gt; &gt; never bother me. (don't want them in the house tho)
&gt; &gt;
&gt; &gt; Reckon there is a bat trap?
&gt;
&gt; I'll have to find out. And what and how to bait it. It unnerves me
&gt; when people post scary messages about rabies, but ever since I killed
&gt; one years ago with a broom handle because my husband freaked out, the
&gt; little thing cried so pitifully, I could never do that again unless it
&gt; tried to harm me.
&gt;
Yeah people imagine dracula due to too many midnight movies. I had to kill
one once and it was on my boat about 14 miles off shore of avon ohio in
lake erie. This bat was all over us for some strange reason... there was a
big coast gaurd research boat watching us kill the bat too. (they were
throwing test bats at us i think) :)

&gt; I'm worried about how it got in, if it is indeed a bat which it probably
&gt; is. There are several possible spots. Didn't have any for a couple of
&gt; years and thought I was past that.

&gt; What about a bird's nest?
&gt; Chicks?? (Winged type).

That's a long shot, although . . .maybe a baby. I swear it is following
me through the house except to the back room where I have my computer.
I don't know what could last this long without getting fed unless there
are more than one . . ..

Birds have gotten in from time to time. A medium-sized brown woodpecker
somehow got in my computer room a few years ago. I have no idea how a
bird that large got in. We had a broken window in the attic and a hole
in the ceiling where my son's friend stepped through . . .who knows.
The window is now replaced, but there is a piece of wainscoating loose
in the eaves that needs to be repaired. A bat could easily get in
through there. I wouldn't think a bird would want to nest in the attic
as it is way too hot. A bat could quickly find its way to a cooler part
of the house by the air currents.

I'll try to figure it out tomorrow. I'm out of ideas. When it was in
the lr, I thought of just opening the front door and it might leave, but
I don't want bugs in here.

&gt;A cricket, maybe?

I'm familiar with their sound. It isn't the same, but that doesn't mean
they don't make different sounds. I'll let you know if I figure it out.
Maybe I will just have a houseguest for awhile . . .I'm growing
accustomed to its sound. I just wanted whatever it is out for obvious
reasons and that it not starve before it can be caught and set free. If
it's a bat, it seems it's in more than it is out. I don't know what
happens while I'm sleeping.

Seems odd the cat doesn't show more curiosity about it. She's a good
mouser and caught a chipmunk by the tail when one got in my computer
room. I made her drop it, it hid in a corner, I isolated it by closing
the door and getting the cat out and left some peanuts and water out.
In the morning there were peanut shells all over my keyboard. I opened
the screen a couple inches and left some peanuts on the windowsill and
the next day the peanuts hadn't been eaten and it was gone. I don't
think the cat got it.

The woodpecker eventually flew into the top of the closet and climbed
into a small computer peripheral box. I clamped the lid down tight when
I found it and took it outside and set it free.

This one has me stymied. For now. It's just chirping away as I write,
every few seconds.

Maybe they thought you were Cuban refugees who had somehow gotten off
course and come down the St. Lawrence River. Heh, the t-word comes to
mind. They were just bored and had to scope you out and act officious
and obnoxious and sic the bat on you. Their radar may have affected the
bat because that behavior was unusual especially if in the daytime.

Yes, we may have to settle for a peaceful coexistence. It cheeped a
little bit ago. I called animal control, said I didn't want them to
come out, asked if they knew what it could be, they said I had to call a
professional trapper. Yeah, right, you know what they would charge. My
granddaughter's bf's father does pest control; he may have some ideas
about it and might help me catch it so I've got a call in to her so we
can get in touch with him. If he can do anything, he would at least
give me a price break. Whatever it is, I don't want to kill it. At
least it isn't a snake.

Have you checked the battery in the smoke alarm?? I know that sounds stupid,
but I once tracked a &quot;cricket&quot; for two weeks, only to discover that he was
really the smoke alarm chirping to let me know the battery was dead.

Hmmm. I will check that out. I have one sitting in the dr on the
buffet and one in the sunroom. Didn't bother to get on a ladder and
install them the proper way. That might be it. Thanks! It's chirping
now. I just took two batteries out. There are more in boxes in the
spare room, don't know where exactly I put them.

I'll try to get back to you on this.

&gt;&gt; lengthy periods. I thought chipmunk, but they are usually more
&gt;&gt; repetitive vocally when they get going. I can't pinpoint where this
&gt;&gt; is, I have a cat so it is probably hiding, suspect the heat ducts but
&gt;&gt; not sure because the sound seems to alternate between the dining room
&gt;&gt; and spare bedroom, kitchen or back hall, it is hard to track the
&gt;&gt; sound. This has been going on for about a week now. I thought I
&gt;&gt; might be hearing things, but my daughter was here and heard it and
&gt;&gt; asked what it was.
&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt; I bought a havahart live trap for smallish creatures, had a dickens
&gt;&gt; of a time getting it set, daughter figured out the final step, and
&gt;&gt; loaded it with sunflower seeds and a peanut. Nothing has happened
&gt;&gt; yet.
&gt;&gt;
&gt;
&gt; Have you checked the battery in the smoke alarm?? I know that sounds
&gt; stupid, but I once tracked a &quot;cricket&quot; for two weeks, only to discover
&gt; that he was really the smoke alarm chirping to let me know the battery
&gt; was dead.

Thank you DP! Just did. See my most recent reply above.

I think you nailed it. And you didn't know I had smoke detectors
(suppose most people do, net people at least).

It makes me laugh at myself, telling it to come out so I could catch it
and let it go free. Ha ha.

That's three problems solved within the last two days, two with the help
of netizens and one by my little old self. I get so much good help on
the net, it's amazing.

I must tell you it's a huge relief, didn't know how long I was going to
have to put up with it or what it would take to solve that one. Wonder
if I had gotten an animal trapper if he would have figured it out.

You posted a question that was obviously fun for many of us.
