We have *something* gnawing loudly in our walls at night. The sound drives me nuts. It has only been going on for a few nights now, and seems to move from room to room. I can not find any sign of mice in the house and there have been no "catches" or springing of our peanut-butter baited mouse traps. We have had mice in previous years, but were always able to get them quickly with traps and did a major "seal-up" last fall.

I am wondering if it could somehow be chipmunks ...

How can I get these things out of the walls? I can't (obviously) set traps within the walls ... and I won't use poison as we have three small children and a dog.

Thanks for any and all ideas!

Had the same problem myself once turned out to be wasps! Go figure heard them chewing on the studs in the wall was a bit noisy also.
