Animal / Rat Scratching Inside Wall?

Most instances where animals are in the wall in Florida, the culprits are roof rats.  The hollow chamber of home walls connects directly with the attic.  Animals in the wall is almost always a typical rats in the attic problem where the rats have decided to descend down the wall chambers from time to time.  Squirrels and mice in Orlando, FL can do this as well, but nearly as often as roof rats.

The first question with hearing animals in the wall is:

How long have been hearing the scratching and is it always at the same location?

If the customer answers that they have been hearing scratching in multiple wall locations then we proceed with our normal rats in the attic setup.

If customer only has heard the noise recently and at only 1 specific location, then a more drastic solution may be called for:

The customer heard scratching consistently from one spot in the wall for the past 2 days. Most scratching inside wall sounds are made by rats. Occasionally, the scratching is the sound of an animal that is stuck, having come down from attic, and now can't get back up. This happens most commonly with baby opossums, though baby squirrels do this as well.

The drywall is cut into above the scratching sound. The important parts of this step are to cut shallowly and not risk cutting into electric wires, to cut the hole in the right location and size the first time, and to cut neatly to allow an easy repair.

At this home in Maitland Florida, the customer had trapped for the mother possum himself, but didn't account for the babies.  Baby possums move around without purpose and frequently find themselves stuck.

After the animals in the wall were removed, traps were set in the attic to see if any other baby possums were still present.

The Rats in the Walls

H. P. Lovecraft

Something bumped into me -- something soft and plump. It must have been the rats; the viscous, gelatinous, ravenous army that feast on the dead and the living ... Why shouldn't rats eat a de la Poer as a de la Poer eats forbidden things? ... The war ate my boy, damn them all ... and the Yanks ate Carfax with flames and burnt Grandsire Delapore and the secret ... No, no, I tell you, I am not that daemon swineherd in the twilit grotto! It was not Edward Norrys' fat face on that flabby fungous thing! Who says I am a de la Poer? He lived, but my boy died! ... Shall a Norrys hold the land of a de la Poer? ... It's voodoo, I tell you ... that spotted snake ... Curse you, Thornton, I'll teach you to faint at what my family do! ... 'Sblood, thou stinkard, I'll learn ye how to gust ... wolde ye swynke me thilke wys?... Magna Mater! Magna Mater!... Atys... Dia ad aghaidh's ad aodaun... agus bas dunarch ort! Dhonas 's dholas ort, agus leat-sa!... Ungl unl... rrlh ... chchch...

This is what they say I said when they found me in the blackness after three hours; found me crouching in the blackness over the plump, half-eaten body of Capt. Norrys, with my own cat leaping and tearing at my throat. Now they have blown up Exham Priory, taken my Man away from me, and shut me into this barred room at Hanwell with fearful whispers about my heredity and experience. Thornton is in the next room, but they prevent me from talking to him. They are trying, too, to suppress most of the facts concerning the priory. When I speak of poor Norrys they accuse me of this hideous thing, but they must know that I did not do it. They must know it was the rats; the slithering scurrying rats whose scampering will never let me sleep; the daemon rats that race behind the padding in this room and beckon me down to greater horrors than I have ever known; the rats they can never hear; the rats, the rats in the walls.
