Wildlife Control for Property Developers
Honey Bee Control

While extremely important environmentally, bees can be dangerous when their hives are too close to humans. During land development, bees’ natural habitats can be unwittingly disturbed or destroyed, putting your workers in immediate danger from the threat of stings from bee populations that can easily exceed 100,000.

This is particularly dangerous when a worker is unaware that he or she is allergic to bee stings. If help is not nearby, a serious health crisis — even loss of life — is possible.

Bees are also a concern when they inhabit structures built where their habitats were disrupted. Honey bees often build hives in the voids in buildings’ beams and walls. These hives can quickly cause significant structural damage, and the honey in abandoned hives will rot, creating a terrible odor and attracting insects, rodents, mold and fungus.

Aggressive Africanized honey bees are present in the southern states we serve, and disturbing an Africanized hive can be life-threatening even for non-allergic workers. Because of our expertise with aggressive bees, many general pest control companies call on Trutech® to handle these dangerous situations.

If not properly removed and treated, bees will continue to rebuild hives on your property.

Solutions

Bee removal is a delicate procedure and should only be done by trained professionals. Because honey bees are beneficial to the environment, live honey bee removal is preferred but not always possible. When feasible, our teams will work with our network of local beekeepers to relocate the hives.

We can also seal your buildings to keep out bees and other wildlife. Our goal is a permanent solution to your bee problem.

Beaver Control

In uninhabited areas, beavers can be beneficial to an ecosystem. However, when large populations inhabit ponds and lakes, disasters can occur. Beavers have been known to dam off feeder creeks, runoffs and culverts, allowing the surrounding land to become heavily flooded.

Beavers have also been known to cut down seedlings and large trees such as oaks and pines, sometimes dangerously close to homes and businesses. In addition, unwanted erosion occurs where beavers build their dams and lodges.

Encountering these animals can create significant issues during initial and post-land development.

Beavers are territorial. After removal from your site, it’s likely that neighboring beavers will move into the newly available habitat.

Solutions

Our team will perform a site assessment and provide recommended control options specific to your property. If beavers are altering your landscapes, disrupting grading or generally impacting your construction sites, our technicians can quickly and effectively handle the problem.

While habitat modification is possible at some sites, it’s often not cost-effective. Trapping is the most appropriate method to control beavers. In addition, we can break down dams, protect trees and set up routine inspections to get ahead of potential re-inhabitation.

Note that some states require property owners to apply for special trapping permits for beavers. If your property is located in a state that requires a trapping permit, we will be happy to assist with the application process.

Protected Bird Control

Protected birds are a common concern in land development. Most species of birds are protected to some degree, with hawks, falcons and eagles of particular concern. Some migratory water fowl such as ducks and geese — and several other species — are also protected by strict federal and state guidelines.

Property developers must adhere to these protection orders or face serious and expensive consequences. Once lands are developed, these same birds can move back into the area, creating a host of new problems.

Solutions

Our team will inspect your site and provide recommendations specific to your property and the bird species found there. Our relationships with governing agencies combined with our experience and knowledge allow us to design solutions that not only protect the bird population but also avoid potential legal problems.

Snake Control

While snakes are beneficial to the environment, they can be a liability in an undeveloped area, new development or public spaces. The real or imagined threat of snakebites can create an uncomfortable environment for workers and a potentially dangerous situation for employees and visitors.

While most species are non-venomous, there are a number of venomous snake species that can create legitimate risks. Because it can be difficult for non-professionals to easily determine which snakes are venomous and which are not, all snakes should be treated as a threat and removed from your property.

In areas where snakes are common, it may be necessary to take a proactive approach to snake control and prevention. This requires an ongoing, professional snake control program.

Solutions

Snake control and prevention begin with an on-site inspection and consultation by a Trutech® technician. He or she will look for snakes around your property and will remove any snakes found.

Since all snakes require specific habitat types and foods, our professionals can often tell which species are most common in a particular site.

For ongoing snake control, we offer two options: One is snake trapping in a particular area for a set amount of time. The type of trap and duration depends on your property’s unique circumstances.

The other option involves a combination of techniques — trapping, reduction of food sources, manipulation or modification of the landscape to make the area less desirable and sometimes a snake repellent. This aggressive snake control service is typically provided on a monthly basis. It is unique to Trutech and has been perfected over years of testing and experience. This approach often yields the best results and is usually the right option to keep the property as safe as possible.
