Charlotte County Wildlife Removal Services

How do you get rid of the wildlife in your home? Trust the professionals! Successfully controlling a wildlife pest problem is a bigger project than most DIYers consider. Wildlife damage management includes:

• Reinforcing potential entry points
• Wildlife control
• Locate entry points
• Set and check traps
• Relocate/release
• Seal all possible entries
• Clean & disinfect

Trutech Wildlife Technicians know how to effectively and efficiently control any nuisance wildlife from your home with an integrated wildlife pest management strategy. They will humane remove the animal, repair any damage, protect your home from future pest animals, and clean and disinfect the area.

Rodent Pest Control

This part of Florida has extensive rats and mice. Rats and Mice are will inhabit homes and buildings causing damage and spreading diseases in Punta Gorda. 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.

Squirrel Removal

The most common squirrels in Charlotte County are the Fox Squirrel, Eastern Gray Squirrel, and the Southern Flying Squirrel. By far the most common in Southwest 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.

Raccoon Removal

Raccoons inhabit all parts of the state and are one of the more aggressive animals in Florida. They tend to stay near a reliable source of water and are comfortable in urban areas making Charlotte County an ideal raccoon habitat. 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 Control

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.

Armadillo Control

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.

This is a very complex and unique animal that can be very difficult to trap. The most effective means for armadillo control is exclusion work. 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.

Snake Control

Thirty-four of Florida's forty-six native snake species are in South Florida. Of those, only four are venomous. The Timber Rattlesnake and Coppersheads are only found in North Florida so residents in Punta Gorda do not need to worry about them. Generally, the most harm snakes inflict is scaring someone.

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.
