Hello I have this brown material sticking out of my attic latch and was kind of worried it could Brown Asbestos. I know that type was hardly used in the western world in homes ( well from what I read) and was wondering if I am over thinking it could be that material. I have 2 pictures if anyone could take a stab at what material this most likely is. I know you cant be 100% certain it is not asbestos without a lab test but that is the next step most likely.






Thanks for any inputs.

If you're that concerned, put a dust mask on and open the hatch up to see what it is. Even if it is asbestos, it won't kill you from touching it. The problem is inhaling it after it goes airborne such as from grinding/cutting.

Have you never been in your attic?
