Wildlife We Remove in Columbia, SC

Hearing an animal in your attic or noticing rodent droppings is stressful. Wildlife living in your home disrupts your lifestyle, damages your house, and introduces diseases to you and your family. You need to remove the animal quickly and safely. 

The experts at Trutech Wildlife Service can quickly and humanely get rid of any nuisance wildlife in your house. Animals like raccoons, squirrels, and bats look for safe shelter. Areas around your house like attics, roofs, and chimneys provide those safe places for animals.

The mild winters and humid summers allow a wide range of critters to be active year-round. Columbia’s continued urbanization will force animals to find new habitats and food sources. This often results in conflicts between humans and wildlife, as animals may forage in gardens, raid trash cans, or take up residence in attics, basements, or crawl spaces.

The experts at Trutech Wildlife Service have the training and experience to identify the pest and create a custom wildlife removal plan. Call Trutech in to get wildlife out.

Trutech Wildlife Service Process

Step 1: Inspection

Our comprehensive wildlife removal process starts with a whole home inspection. We start the inspection by asking questions so we can understand exactly what you’re experiencing. We want to address any signs of wildlife you have noticed like hearing strange sounds or smelling unusual odors.

A thorough inspection covers the interior and exterior of the home including the attic, crawlspace, roof, and any possible entry points.

Step 2: The Plan

With the results of the inspection, we share what we found and how to solve the nuisance wildlife problem.
Although each wildlife control plan is unique to the home, it may include live trapping, direct capture, one-way doors, or deterrents. Before any work begins, we make sure that you are comfortable with the steps being taken to resolve the nuisance wildlife issue.

Step 3: Get To Work

With your approval, we get to work. After the animal removal has taken place, we will repair any damage caused by the critter. Additionally, we will apply sanitizing and ectoparasite agents to the affected areas. Once the plan is executed, your home will be returned to its normal condition.

Step 4: Full Home Exclusion

Wildlife removal is just one part of the plan. Many plans include wildlife control measures to prevent any future problems. This is often completed by installing a full home exclusion. The goal is to create physical barriers to prevent animals from entering your home in the future.
A few possible exclusion techniques include gable vents, ridge vents, crawlspace vents, roof returns, and plumbing stacks. With the appropriate exclusions in place, you can rest easy knowing that a long-term solution is in place to protect your home from nuisance wildlife.

Guarantee and Warranty

Once installed, Trutech offers a one-year warranty on full home exclusions. Plus, there is a 100% satisfaction guarantee. If you aren’t satisfied with the initial work, Trutech will send out a service manager to inspect the work completed and make any necessary adjustments.

Raccoon Removal

Raccoons get into your attic during the spring to give birth and during the colder months to find shelter from the weather. 

Trained technicians utilize methods such as live trapping and exclusion to address raccoon infestations and prevent future problems in homes.

Squirrel Removal

Squirrels can scamper onto roofs and gnaw their way into your attic. During the spring, squirrels will find safe places to nest in your attic to give birth. 

The most effective squirrel removal uses an excluder valve with a squirrel trap. The best squirrel control is installing exclusions around the roof. 

Bat Removal

In late spring, bats roost together in maternity colonies that can range in size from five to a few hundred. While bats do not pose a direct threat to people, their guano can damage attics and spread diseases. 

Bats are a protected species. The most ethical bat removal installs a one-way valve once the pups can fly. The bats will evict themselves safely. 

Rat Control

Rodents like rats and mice are active all year. They are constantly searching for food and will nest near a reliable food source. Nocturnal critters, you’ll rarely see a rat but you will notice their presence. 

Reproducing at a prodigious rate, rat control requires an integrated approach including rat traps, exclusions, population control, and bait stations.  

Snake Control

Snakes enter homes to escape the weather or to hunt. Snakes eat where they live so if you have a snake problem, the experts at Trutech will also look for signs of rodents. 

Snakes easily avoid people so trapping a snake takes skill and experience. After removing the snake, exclusions will protect your home from snakes and rodents. 

Bird Control

Birds in your trees are a welcome addition to any yard. Birds nesting on your house or inside of it can be a problem. Nesting materials are fire hazards, and bird droppings carry diseases that spread to you and your family. 

It is illegal to use bird traps on most species. Effective bird control requires an integrated approach of deterrents, repellents, and habitat modifications.

Dear Trutech, yesterday happened just like you promised! You had told me that if I saw a snake on our property again to call you any day or any time because that’s the best time to catch them – that is, soon after they’re spotted. You sent Alfred Burns right away and Nick Yohn, D.M. arrived, shortly thereafter. Removing that 65″ snake from our yard was a great relief for my wife and me. You have kept every promise you’ve made and you have provided great customer service at every step.

Life happens, right? Had a mix-up on my routine bi-monthly scheduled service and got skipped. There's no need to complain when things go right but the response when something goes wrong says a lot, maybe more, about a company's real customer appreciation. I contacted Trutech's customer service and was immediately helped, a yard service was completed in the next couple of days at my convenience and at no charge, and too, all without any negative attitude, etc. I'm already a long-time customer and plan to remain so.

Trutech drove a raccoon out of my attic & sealed several openings shut. They cleaned up the droppings. They trapped an armadillo & her offsprings left. Then Trutech drove stakes in the ground beside my fence to shut off their passage. All their efforts have paid off because the wildlife has not returned.

I needed someone to come back out here and fix a new hole the squirrels were using to access it, and BOOM, Trutech did it right away. And they told me to hit them back up if any more holes crop up. Very appreciated!

Frequently Asked Questions

There is no one-size-fits-all solution; each job requires a custom approach. We inspect every home and build a custom plan to resolve any wildlife problems. We use a variety of techniques including cage traps, direct capture, one-way valves,  and deterrents. Exclusion techniques are the most effective way to get rid of animals. 

We provide customized solutions to each individual customer so that we may solve the issue as quickly, efficiently, and cost-effectively as possible. The size of the house, type of animal, number of nuisance animals, and length of time of infestation affect the estimated price of wildlife removal.

An estimate may change based on the amount of animal activity or work needed to be done. All estimates are finalized with an exact price before any work begins.

Our goal is to remove any wildlife as humanely as possible — often that means catching and releasing the animal.

Trutech® does not hire subcontractors for animal removal services. We employ expert technicians who are provided ongoing education and training in all aspects of animal control and removal. Many of our technicians hold degrees in Wildlife Biology, Entomology (insects), Ornithology (birds) or Herpetology (reptiles), some with Masters degrees in their specialty field.

Yes! We are licensed and insured.

We start by first removing the wildlife on your property, and cleaning up any damage. From there we’ll work with you to create a customized prevention plan so you won’t have the same issue again.

Typically an animal dies in your home because it became trapped in a hard-to-reach and hidden area. Our expert technicians have the experience and knowledge to find it and then safely remove the carcass from your home.

Our Wildlife Technicians use a pet-safe odor eliminator made of natural organisms and enzymes that consume decaying organic odor-causing matter, eliminating the source of the lingering odor. We use aerosols, oxidizing agents, foggers, and disinfectants with germicides to deodorize until nature completes this task for you.

You should consider a full home exclusion after the smell has been neutralized. Nuisance wildlife found its way into your house once. That entrance leaves your home vulnerable to future animal infestations. Full home exclusions are the most effective form of wildlife control.
