Common Wildlife

Cocoa Beach Wildlife Removal Services

Some of the most beautiful beaches in the nation are in Cocoa Beach, FL. 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. The pests are attracted to yards with plentiful hiding spots like piles of debris, wood, or rocks. Most unpleasant snake encounters happen when property owners inadvertently disturb one of the creatures when they are hiding.

Homeowners in Cocoa Beach also must be aware of squirrel populations, which thrive in residential areas. They will overtake yards and perturb more desirable wildlife by eating birdseed. Plus, they sometimes start living in attics, gaining access through vents, gaps, and holes in the roof. Squirrels skitter about, creating loud noises, and, more seriously, can cause fire hazards by gnawing on wires and structural supports.

Common Wildlife in Cocoa Beach


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.


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.


Thirty-five of Florida’s forty-six native snake species are in Central East Florida. Of those, only four are venomous.

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 pest infestations.

A snake enters a home looking for food. If you need snake removal in Florida, you likely have rats or mice in your house too.

Not only will Trutech safely remove the snake but also the technician will inspect for any other pest animals. Once all wildlife has been removed, we’ll prevent any future pest animal infestations.

“I am a customer of Trutech and I just wanted to tell you that you have a very dedicated and knowledgeable technician in Ansley Sherlock. We had a difficult rat problem and she has worked tirelessly to help us. She is friendly and pleasant. I know that she will succeed in getting rid of our rats. She is patient and answers all our questions. We definitely will recommend your company to anyone who needs your services.”
“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.”

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes! We are licensed and insured.

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.

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.

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

We provide customized solutions to each individual customer so that we may solve the issue as quickly, efficiently, and cost effectively as possible.  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.
