For a few months now I've heard a noise in the walls /floorboards.
I can only describe it as if a bee/wasp whatever was in.
It's driving me mad,it goes from the side of the bed,to the wall opposite then sometimes I hear it downstairs.
Boyfriend says I can't hear it,even when I say be quiet and listen.
He would say that if a herd of elephants were living there..
I wish I could attach a video with the noise.

Airlock in your pipes?

Draft getting in and making the floorboards hum?

Upload it on you tube and you can.

Check the pipes.

Slightly less irritating than the scary water hammer, that buzzing noise might be vibrations caused by a cold water tank refilling and setting up vibrations through the pipe network.

Or tinnitus?

Would it move from walls to floors that fast?

Louisaric233 Mon 09-Oct-17 23:02:26

I've recorded the noise on my snapchat and friend can also hear it

Do you have things plugged in by bed? I have very sensitive hearing and can hear electrical equipment buzzing.

Louisaric233 Mon 09-Oct-17 23:04:59

Nope nothing.
It moves from different walls,I've even heard it downstairs too in living room.

Wasp's nest in the walls?

There is never just the one shock

Basilisk is more of a hiss than a buzz

I get tinnitus intermittently. It sounds like a wasp in one ear but appears to change direction from where it's coming from. Could it be that?

Louisaric233 Mon 09-Oct-17 23:09:32

boyfriend thinks I'm mad,I can deffo hear it tho and the noise moves.
Can't exactly open up the walls grin

yanbu but is that really your question or are you more worried what the noise is?

I can hear electrical frequencies, is that a possibility?

also once I had an ongoing noise that I couldn't trace got louder and louder....eventually got loud enough for me to identify and it was the fridge motor packing up slowly.

Louisaric233 Mon 09-Oct-17 23:10:09

I could be open to that but my friend heard it on the video recording and thought it was a wasp.

There is NEVER just one mouse

Pinkmoony knows her mice!
They are very sociable creatures.

It is a cat purring. Many yearsago cats were routinely placed in the walls of a house for good uck. You have a ghostly cat living in your walls, but it likes you and that's why it'spurring.

Or rats.

ReanimatedSGB Mon 09-Oct-17 23:42:58

Well, if you have recorded it and other people can hear it, it's not tinnitus. Either your BF's hearing is simply less good than yours or he is being a knob.
It might be worth contacting a pest control company and playing the recording to them.fffffffffffffffffffffffffff
