You would want to sleep through the night without being bothered by noise, don’t you? Unfortunately, if you live near the woods, there is a big chance for your sleep to be bothered by wild critters. Here are the noisy pests that you would not want to hear while you are sleeping.

• Raccoons

You would not want these animals around your property since they can topple down your garbage bins and make a lot of racket because of their scavenging. But also noteworthy is that raccoons can be the noisiest pests that can enter your home. You would not want them to enter your kitchen. Because once they do, do not be surprised if you start hearing the sounds of silverware and ceramic plates hitting the ground.

• Squirrels Rats


Do you hear tiny squeaks at night? Do your something or some things scurrying through your ceiling. Those are definitely rats. Or probably squirrels. These dwell on the attic, under the floor, and even between walls. Take note that rats are nocturnal. While you are dozing sees, they are very active in doing their business. They grind their teeth, they chew on through your falls, and they bump through each other.

• Sparrows

Sparrows can be among the noisiest birds out there in the world. They are capable of warbling in low, medium, and high frequencies. An interesting fact is that sparrows would even experiment with various noises just to make sure their noise stands out among other background noises. They come in large groups and they love to perch over trees. If you have trees in your property, there is a big chance you would be visited by these noisy birds soon.

• Bats

You have probably learned in grade school that bats have poor eyesight. Thus, they rely on their sonar capabilities in order to navigate through very dark areas. Because of this, bats can really be noisy. Take note that bats have the capability to live in your attic or even in your basement if in case they find opening. Like most rodents, bats are nocturnal and that means they are capable if keeping you up at night.

• Starlings

These birds might not wake you up in the middle of the night, but they might cause you to wake up a couple of hours before your alarm clock goes off. They really get up early and they can really cause a lot of noise. Most starlings are capable of mimicking other sounds they hear. So if there are a flock of starlings near your home or even on your roof, expect to hear sounds of all sorts. Starlings also do mating calls. That is why they are noisier during mating season.
