Mystery noise in the house

It sounds like a human sized wasp stuck in the wall trying to get out. I've checked all of the appliances and they're all switched off (excluding the fridge). The boiler is also switched off. It's definitely coming from the walls and not outside.
This is just the latest in a series of weird noises coming from the walls. I think something is going on.

Is It Normal?

  • I wonder if the OP got this situated.

    Another possibility is that this is a promotion for a rap group.

    • I worked out it was coming from near the landline socket in the walls. It has ceased for now but staying on high alert for creatures and rap groups. Thanks guys!

    • You’re probably right

  • I have the same noise coming from the wall near my front door. I know there used to be a doorbell there before some electrical work was there and I think the electricians left the old doorbell inside the wall and didn't separate the wires, leaving it to buzz.

  • I'm thinking it's something electrical. Buzzing to me seems like an electrical problem. Tell the landlord.

  • It could be a bee's or wasp's nest on the inside of the wall. Those things can get massive.

  • Is it a house or an apartment?

  • Definitely a poltergeist. They always start in the closet then move to the tv.

      • I thought there always was, but maybe it's cause the mars rover just died.

        Anyways, its probably just the boring things that others suggested, but if not, here's my top 10

        1. Ghosts
        2. Aliens
        3. Cask of amontillado bricked in dude
        4. Trapped hooker cereal killer vic trying to scratch her way out
        5. Radioactive turtles, 4 of them, craving pizza
        6. Carbon monoxide poisoning
        7. Angry wall snakes
        8. A small homeless chinese woman who can fold herself into small spaces
        9. The government surveillance equipment malfunctioning
        10. And 10, 10, 10, 10 is for everything, everything, everything. And you can all just kiss off into the air...

        Anywho, sleep well, noisy walls

        Wahaha

          You've been quiet too long. We need to have you rock the boat a bit. You know, the classic Douche pa-zazz; your irresistible panache, the upbeat pessimism that you sprinkle with your magic wand. Let's hear what you've got.

          • Oh, and also, i OBVIOUSLY intended it to be cereal - i clearly meant a murderer of the breakfast food variety. It was all that cap'n crunch scraping & scratching on roof of that poor hooker's mouth that made those terrifying noises...duh.

            • Okay. So you really meant "the crunch of cereal from serial killer Capt Crunch, who is a whore monger, and scary dude." Righta, got it. Ta.

            • Do you like scuba diving? Why not get certified right away, and go up to the Barrier Reef for a look around. Diving the Barrier Reef was one of the top ten most memorable things I did when I lived down there.

        • You forgot about remote control cockroaches that spy for the CIA. Sometimes these insect-like robots create distractions so that double agent fumigators can come in and wire the house with electromagnetic emission detectors. It supports anatomic chip identication of enemies of the state.

        • I meant mating season.
          I think it's either wasps or 9, something is going on. Who needs sleep anyway?

  • Probably a mouse. Or even a squirrel. Idk what a human sized wasp would sound like but it doesnt sound very logical to be that.

  • You sure the neighbors are not making noise?
    Also, utility lines can make some stupid noises.

    If niether of those - rodents could be likely. I know you think it is too loud to be mice but they can be annoying.

    • I'm not sure, I've never heard anything like it.
      Nobody lives on that side and it's definitely too loud to be rodents. At first I thought it was a swarm of wasps waking up but it's just one huge buzzing noise.

      • Well shit.
        Lemme ask a couple things - what is the weather like where you are at? If it is warm, there could be bees or wasps living in the wall. Have you seen any serious bee or wasp activity anywhere outside your home?

        I do not know what the chances are that this would actually happen really.

        When you say "series of weird noises", are there other noises or just on and off buzzing? Does it actually sound like a swarm of pests or more like some other kind of vibration?

        If you do notice outside that there are bees/wasps coming and going, do not seal off their entry/exit, because they are likely to create another, possibly through some place inside the home.

        It may be time to call an exterminator if the buzz resembles bees closely enough

        Maybe watch this - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rSHw3_5K3-A

        • Thanks for the video, I haven't seen anything. This place makes all kinds of weird noises. I often get up in the night to make sure the fridge isn't dying but it's not coming from there. There's something in the walls but I can't work it out.
          Also the weather is cold and wet.

          • So typical shitty weather for most of the USA this time of year.
            I didn't know if you were in AUS where I believe it is summer right now?

            And as jethro asked - house or apartment? And the wall with the most noise - does the other side face another apartment or the outdoors?
