Insects in attic making noise?

Recently we have been hearing faint chewing noises coming from above two windows and in the ceiling/attic of the top level of our home. It sounds like insects eating wood. Can termites or carpenter ants be heard like this? Not a squirrel or other animal as we hear no sounds of movement. Other than calling in an exterminator, what should we be doing right away? Thanks!

    Yes, the possibility is that that you have a wood eating organism in those locations. For you to hear it make it very disturbing but at the same time is good because you know its there. I agree with the other answers. Call the exterminator.

    Good luck
