Wildlife We Remove in Orlando, FL
Animals have the same basic needs as people — food, water, and shelter. Both residential and commercial properties provide resources to satisfy wild animals’ needs. When wildlife causes (or is about to cause) property damage, presents a threat to public safety, or causes an annoyance within, under, or upon a building, owners can remove the nuisance wildlife.
Central Florida has a variety of habitats for wildlife to thrive: hardwood forests, pine forests, various scrub, and dry prairie. As Orlando grows, animals will continue to adapt to the urban and suburban habitat. Most homeowners will notice nuisance wildlife in their homes during the spring and fall. The hot, humid summers generally drive most animals (except rats, mice, and bats) out of attics.
When critters make their home in your home, it’s a big problem. Depending on the size of the infestation, you could be facing extensive property damage and possible dangers to your health. Whether your find unwelcome animals in your home or business, it is critical to call in the professionals as soon as possible.
When you work with Trutech Wildlife Services, you’ll find long-term guaranteed wildlife control solutions.

Orlando 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.
Since its 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.

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 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.
Opossums are not prone to aggression. They pose the greatest threat to your garden, but they will eat almost anything. Opossums do carry diseases and host parasites like mites, roundworms, flukes, and tapeworms.
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 keep opossums out. If an opossum makes its way into your attic, both cage trap and direct capture are humane removal strategies. After the opossum has been removed, we apply an ectoparasite treatment to exterminate any pests living on an opossum.
There are 196 species of breeding birds in Florida and sixteen nonnative birds. The most common nuisance birds include pigeons, woodpeckers, peacocks, and house sparrows.
When birds nest on your property, they can cause a problem like building nests in your home or creating a mess with their droppings. Most birds in Deltona are protected.
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.
The most common squirrels in Orlando are the Fox Squirrel, Eastern Gray Squirrel, and the Southern Flying Squirrel. By far the most common in Central Florida is the Eastern Gray Squirrel. Because squirrels are active from dawn until dusk, the first sign of an infestation is scurrying noises in your attic early in the morning. Beyond a nuisance, squirrels like all rodents must constantly gnaw and chew.
To effectively remove squirrels, the wildlife technician will employ a variety of tactics such as live trapping, one-way doors, deterrents, and direct capture.
Most of the snakes in Orlando are not venomous. There are only four venomous species found in Orlando, 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 Orlando, 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.
Armadillos were introduced to Florida in the 1920s and now are common and considered naturalized. Prolific diggers, and 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.
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 techniques include securing food sources and closing any entry points.
Bat RemovalDuring 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.
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.
