Wildlife We Remove in Space Coast, FL
The best surfing on the East Coast and the most beautiful beaches in the nation is only forty-five minutes from Orlando. The area is named for the Kennedy Space Center. Millions of tourists visit the Space Coast each year, and the area draws a diverse population to live there (ranked #1 place to live in Florida by U.S. News and World Reports).
The increased human activity can lead to more opportunities for human-wildlife conflicts. Animals have the same needs as people– food, water, and shelter. Wildlife can find resources to satisfy those needs in people’s homes.
Whether it’s your primary residence or a vacation rental, nuisance wildlife can find their way into your house. Wildlife will disrupt your daily life, damage your home, and introduce your family to potential diseases. Safe, effective, and timely animal control is essential.
Trutech can provide wildlife removal in Titusville, Port Canaveral, Cocoa Beach, Viera, Melbourne, and Palm Bay.
Cocoa Beach Wildlife Removal Services
Unwelcomed animals in your home will make their presence known. Animal noises are the most obvious sign you have an animal in your house. Wildlife in your home is more than an annoyance. Nuisance wildlife will damage your home and threaten your health.
Step 1: Inspection
We inspect the entire house both inside and out. We check the attic and crawlspace. We look for entry points along the exterior and on the roof. Each house is different. Each species is different. An inspection could take as little as 30 minutes or as long as 3 hours.
Step 2: The Plan
After the inspection, we share what we found with you and explain how we solve the problem. Each plan is unique to the homeowner. Removal strategies include but are not limited to live trapping, direct capture, deterrents, or one-way doors. Once they’re gone, we repair any damage and apply sanitizing and ectoparasite agents. We return your home to the condition before the animal was present.
Step 3: 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.
Guarantees and Warranties
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.
Common Wildlife in Cocoa Beach
Homeowners in Cocoa Beach also must be aware of squirrel populations, which thrive in residential areas. They can overtake yards and gain access to your attic through vents, gaps, and holes in the roof.
Because squirrels are active from dawn until dusk, the first sign of an infestation is scurrying noises in your attic early in the morning. More seriously, can cause fire hazards by gnawing on wires and structural supports.
To effectively remove squirrels, the wildlife technician will employ a variety of tactics such as live trapping, one-way doors, deterrents, and direct capture.
Armadillos were introduced to Florida in the 1920s and now are common and considered naturalized. Prolific diggers, armadillos can damage lawns and garden beds with their burrows.
Armadillos present little danger to people. The greatest danger they pose is to your landscaping. Controlling the animal can protect your lawn and garden and the integrity of structures like decks and driveways on your property.
Capturing an armadillo with a live trap can be difficult. Habitat modification and exclusions are extremely effective in removing armadillos from your lawn. Water your garden beds in the morning because armadillos prefer loose soil. Armadillos are nocturnal, and the soil will have dried out by the mid-afternoon.
Opossums are not prone to aggression. They pose the greatest threat to your garden, but they will eat almost anything. Opossums do carry diseases so do not approach them haphazardly.
Opossums will also look for safe nesting areas under decks, inside garages, or under foundations. Sealing ground-level entrances and burying wire mesh are effective ways to exclude opossums.
There are thirteen bat species in Florida. Bats pose very little risk directly to humans. Florida’s native bats are insectivores. The greatest risk to your home comes from the accumulation of bat guano from a roosting colony. The guano can lead to structural damage and potentially spread two fungal diseases.
During maternity season (usually April 15 to August 15) it is illegal in Florida to remove or exclude bats. After maternity season, the wildlife technician removes bats by installing a one-way bat valve. That allows the bats to safely leave your home but prevents them from re-entering.
The most common rodent to find in your home is the roof rat, Norway rat, and common house mouse. Florida is also home to the Florida woodrat and Florida mouse, but those are as common in Brevard county homes.
Not only is it startling to see rodents like mice and rats, but also they can damage your home and carry diseases. Like all rodents, mice and rats constantly gnaw. Effective rodent pest control goes beyond a few traps. An integrated trapping and exclusion strategy is essential to solve the mouse infestation because mice and rats breed often.
The standard rodent trapping duration is normally 5-14 days. It is essential to repair entry points and reinforce potential entry points to keep rats out. Trutech offers recurring rodent services to maintain a rodent-free home.
There are 196 species of breeding birds in Florida and sixteen nonnative birds. The most common nuisance birds include pigeons, woodpeckers, and house sparrows. In Jacksonville, seagulls can also be a problem. Be careful before trying to DIY bird control Permits are required before setting a bird trap.
Effective bird control includes habitat modification, exclusions, repellents, and trapping. Trapping birds are difficult; prevention and exclusion are much more effective to get rid of nuisance birds.
Raccoons inhabit all parts of the state, tend to stay near a reliable source of water, and are comfortable in urban areas. Raccoons can wreak havoc trying to gain entry to your home and cause significant damage creating a den in your attic. They can cause a mess of garbage and destroy home gardens and birdfeeders. Because they are nocturnal, you’ll most likely hear a loud thumbing at night if you have an attic.
Live trapping is the most common removal technique and exclusion repairs. Typical raccoon entry points include soffits, and roof returns. Raccoons are strong enough to tear through your roof if they can’t find an entrance.
All that water also makes a welcome environment for snakes. Central Florida is home to 35 of the state’s snake species, including four that are venomous. Since it’s so hard to tell them apart from their harmless counterparts, people should treat all snakes as if they might be dangerous. Yards with plentiful hiding spots like piles of debris, wood, or rocks attract snakes. Most unpleasant snake encounters happen when property owners inadvertently disturb one of the creatures when they are hiding.
If there’s a snake in your house, you need to call a professional. A snake is in your home for one reason- food. If you have a snake problem, you likely have another wildlife pest problem. The wildlife technician will help remove the snake safely and help uncover any other wildlife or rodenttinfestations.
Stinging Insect Control
Wasps, yellow jackets, hornets, cicada killers, or bees can ruin your outdoor experience. Beehive and wasp nest removal can protect you, your family, and your pets from getting stung.
After the stinging insects are taken care of, the entire hive must be removed. An old hive left in your home could attract a new colony or attract other animals. The hive area must be sanitized to remove any honey. Otherwise, leftover honey could attract other pests, including ants, cockroaches, rats, or raccoons.

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.
