    Default What's snoring ?

    We have a 15th century, timber framed farmhouse which, because of the construction, has hollow walls and numerous small gaps for creatures to sneak into. This means that we have to keep a constant watch out for mice in the loft. A nuisance but not a real problem.

    However, just the past couple of weeks we have heard a 'snoring' in a part of one wall in a bedroom. It is a proper 'snore', not a rustle or flutter or anything scrabbling around but a zzzzz, zzzzz etc. It is during the night and early morning, so I don't think it's a nocturnal creature but I don't really know.

    What would be snoring loud enough to be heard ?

    It'll probably be an insect of some sort. I've had similar sounds in my kitchen, never did pin down what was causing it.

    We had a rat in the walls, but it was more shuffling than snoring. Hedgehogs can make funny noises, but never heard of one getting in a house wall, and they're nocturnal...

    Are you sure it's not the lady next door using a 'personal device'?

    ...only if it's accompanied by moaning, then squealing

    To be sure, check for damp patches on the walls.

    I don't think it could be an insect as it is a proper snoring noise, like someone next door but we haven't got any neighbours.

    I have seen Hedgehogs on the TV, snoring but it's upstairs and I doubt they can get up the wall.

    If it's a real bother Dave, it might be an idea to consult a pest control company. After all, there may be damage being caused or some sort of infestation that could worsen.

    Any chance it could be a cat?
