Wildlife We Remove in Daytona Beach, FL

If you live in Daytona Beach, you probably enjoy spending your time at the beach, in the great outdoors, or even watching the Daytona 500 at Daytona Speedway. You already know how great Daytona Beach is since you live here. Unfortunately, nuisance wildlife loves living in Daytona Beach, too. Lucky for you, the Trutech nuisance wildlife removal team is local to the Daytona area, so we know the most common and biggest nuisance wildlife problems here.

When it comes to wildlife, there’s no shortage of critters that call Florida home. But when they get into your home, that’s when you need the experts. At Trutech, we have decades of experience working with homeowners in and around Daytona Beach to help get rid of invasive wildlife.

In addition to removing wild animals from in and around the home, we also provide dedicated wild animal removal services for government offices and businesses, providing dedicated animal exclusion to help keep pests away.

Daytona Beach Wildlife Removal Services

Since founding in 1984, Trutech Wildlife Service has been helping both homeowners and commercial businesses protect property and public health from nuisance wildlife. With a focus on the best customer experience possible, we work hard to efficiently protect properties from unwelcome wildlife. Here’s what to expect when working with Trutech:

Step 1: Inspection

When a Trutech technician arrives at your home, we will start by asking questions about your experience with the nuisance wildlife at hand. Once we have a firm grasp on the issues the property owner is facing, a thorough inspection of the interior and exterior of the home begins. This includes looking at the attic, crawlspace, roof, and any possible entry points. Since each species and home is different, the length of the inspection can vary. It can take between 30 minutes to 3 hours to accurately evaluate the extent of the wildlife nuisance issue.

Step 2: The Plan

With the results of the inspection, we share our findings with you. And share how we will solve the problem for you. 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

If you approve of the plan, we will set up a time to put it into place. 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.

Common Wildlife in Daytona Beach

Bat Removal

During maternity season (usually April 15 to August 15), it is illegal to remove or exclude bats in Florida. 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. Bats in the attic, or elsewhere in your home, can be a particularly troublesome nuisance. Not only do they make a lot of noise, but their nests and droppings can negatively affect your health and the health of your family. Bat guano is the surest sign you have bats and the greatest risk to your health. A large accumulation of guano can lead to structural issues and spread two fungal diseases.

Raccoon Removal

Raccoons are found throughout Florida. The population of raccoons in Jacksonville continues to grow because of the availability of resources (namely food, shelter, and water).

Raccoons are nocturnal. One of the most common signs of a raccoon infestation is loud, strange noises at night.

Raccoons only need a gap the size of a grapefruit to squeeze into your home, but they are capable of creating much larger holes. They can tear shingles off roofs and tear apart soffits. They also cause significant damage inside your home. 

Cage traps are the most effective raccoon removal technique. Long-term solutions include exclusion techniques by sealing any entry points.

Bird Control

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 Atlantic Beach, 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.

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.

The most common are European honeybees, bumblebees, Africanized bees, and ground bees. Typically, bees will only sting if their hive is threatened. But Africanized bees, otherwise known as killer bees, are known for aggressive behavior and may attack unprovoked.

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.

Squirrel Removal 

Squirrels can fit into the tiniest of spaces and you may not even know you have a squirrel issue until you hear several of them scratching and scurrying around in the walls. 

Squirrels are active from dawn until dusk so you will hear them early in the morning. Like all rodents, they constantly chew and gnaw so a squirrel will damage your home by gnawing.

Don’t waste time with costly squirrel traps or squirrel repellents because squirrels can easily find their way back into your home. Our Northeast Florida squirrel removal pros will employ a variety of tactics such as live trapping, one-way doors, deterrents, and live capture to solve your squirrel infestation.

Snake Control

Most of the snakes in Jacksonville are not venomous. There are only six venomous species found in Florida, and they usually only pose a risk to humans when threatened. All snakes are beneficial to the environment. If you have a snake in your home, avoid killing it. To ensure safe and permanent removal, you need the expertise of a licensed professional.

A snake enters a home looking for food. If you need snake removal in Jacksonville, 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.

Rat Pest Control

Need to get rid of rats quickly and efficiently? Are traps and baits just not doing the job?

Rodents damage your home and spread diseases. Setting a few traps is not an effective rodent pest control method because of how often rodents breed. A litter is usually between five to twelve, and one rat can have up to seven litters in a year!

Our rodent pest control specialists in Daytona Beach, Florida will work with you to get rid of mice and rat problems and help advise you on proper rodent control so that you no longer need to worry about these destructive pests.

The standard trapping duration is normally 5-14 days. An integrated trapping and exclusion strategy is essential to solve the rodent infestation. Rodents can gnaw through virtually any house material, and mice only need a hole the size of a dime. Trutech offers recurring rodent services to maintain a rodent-free home.

Armadillo Control

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.

Opossum Removal

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.

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.
