Animal scratching inside wall?

scratching inside wall
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 Lake Mary, Florida, the customer had trapped for the mother possum himself, but didn't account for the babies.

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