The Fox Squirrel and the Eastern Grey Squirrel both inhabit Northeast Florida. If you hear scurrying in your attic, it is likely the Eastern Grey Squirrel. Fox Squirrels prefer open woods, pine and cypress stands, and mangrove swamp.
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 Jacksonville 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.
Got a problem with mice, rats or other rodents? Rodents damage your home and spread diseases. Setting a few traps is not an effective rodent pest control method because rats and mice breed often.
The standard trapping duration is normally 5-14 days. Rats leave pheromone trails that other rats can follow into your home. It is essential to repair entry points and reinforce potential entry points to keep rats out.
Our rodent pest control specialists in Jacksonville 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.
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 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.
Thirty-five of Florida's forty-six native snake species are in Jacksonville. 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.
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.
From the day I called your company until today, the experience has been wonderful. I was told upon my first call that Michael C. would call me within the hour, and he did. He came the very next morning to assess the situation and began working immediately. He returned two days later to make sure the raccoon had vacated and then repaired any areas it used to reenter. He came back today to complete the sanitizing and make sure I was satisfied. He kept me informed along the way, made sure I was comfortable with everything, treated the wildlife with respect, and was just a joy to talk to because of his experience and expertise. I couldn't have asked for a better experience and he is a true asset to your company.

Q&A with your local branch manager:
What are some of the most common wildlife issues faced by homeowners in your area? Jacksonville has an abundance of wildlife. We have attic dwellers, which include roof rats, mice, squirrels, raccoons and opossums. These animals are expert climbers and are pretty clever when it comes to finding entry into your attic and home. They exploit weak points on roofs, soffits and construction gaps. We also encounter armadillos, moles, and raccoons that damage lawns by digging and burrowing under the home’s foundation. Snakes are a commonly seen reptile found around homes, and there are venomous species in the area. How do the seasons affect wildlife activity in your area? Wildlife is generally a year-round issue. Season changes affect wildlife activity. In spring, food sources are more abundant and most young are born around this time. Summer brings out higher snake and insect activity. When fall and winter arrive and the temperature drops, animals look to seek shelter in homes and attics. Any prevention tips for residents in your area? Inspect around your home in areas such as soffits for damage where animals could enter your attic. Attic inspections help to verify if animals have been present. We can determine if the attic is still being occupied by wildlife or if it ever was based on the droppings and insulation disturbance. I also suggest having a monthly pest control service for your home. Keeping all trees cut back off the home will help deter insects and animals from getting on or potentially in the home. When should homeowners call Trutech? It is wise to contact Trutech at first signs of an animal issue. Animals may be very destructive and carry diseases that can be transferred through contact or excrement. Removing them at the early stages will prevent added expense from damage to the home. We are experts in wildlife removal and prevention.
