I was going in the attic to install a vent pipe for the stove and this
is what I saw.
I don't think anyone has been in the attic for at least 20 years so I
don't know how long this has been here.
Anyone have any idea what this could be? I was afraid to go near it
Hard to see the texture of the pile but if it is just grass/straw it was
done by birds trying to make a nest in the louver. The material falls
and piles up, but it does make a great place for rodents to nest. Wear
gloves when you removing in case of lice/mites etc.
Or, it could be that a number starlings actually found a way into the
attic and were building one of their characteristically large nests.
Either way, it needs to be removed, and if a hole is found where
startlings could enter, hardware cloth or other heavy metal mesh
should be stapled up to prevent them from pecking their way in again.

Dont know what it is, but move out of there fast. I wouldnt live in a
place that has that in it. At least have the roof torn off the place
with a crane and have them rip that part of the ceiling away and right
into a dumpster or a truck. Personally, I'd move myseld and my stuff
and set the place on fire.

This is alarmist. There is really no problem in living there. Usually
they will only infect the dog or cat, and if there is no dog or cat,
they will only make a small entry point in the abdomen and set up a
habitat in the spleen. As you all know, we don't really need our
spleens. It will take them at least 10 years to get past the pupa
stage, at which time worms only an inch long will leave the spleen and
look for other organs. But 10 years is a long time, and they will
surely have a cure by then.
