Wildlife Control and Removal in St. Petersburg
Our lovely city is famed for the perpetual sunlight, giving it our cheery nickname, “Sunshine City.” We all love living in and around St. Petersburg, and so do many kinds of wildlife -- sometimes those animals start to get too comfortable.
When it comes to wildlife removal in Pinellas County, you want the most effective and safest method possible, which is why you’ll want to call Trutech.
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.
Our Integrated Wildlife and Pest Control programs aim to humanely remove and prevent any future intrusions. We provide full home exclusions in which we repair and restore your home from the damage caused by the animal(s).
Inspection & Wildlife Removal
Every unique animal problem begins with an initial inspection. Our Wildlife Consultant will investigate the property for signs of wildlife. Our Wildlife Consultant creates and implements a custom wildlife program to solve your pest animal problems.
Animal Proofing Your Home
Once the animal has safely been removed, it is important to prevent any future animal intruders. Habitat modifications and home exclusions are two of the most effective and humane methods to keep animals out of your home.
Animal Damage Repair
Once your home is secure, it is vital to restore your home. Wild animals do not make the best house guests. Trutech offers services to repair the damage, close entry points, and disinfect affected areas.

Nuisance Wildlife in Southeastern Oklahoma
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.
Squirrels can cause considerable damage to your home. Both gray squirrels and fox squirrels can be found in Florida, but Tampa-St Pete residents are more likely to have fox squirrels in their attic.
Squirrels are active during the day so you might hear squealing, running, or gnawing early in the morning. Squirrels' teeth never stop growing so they constantly gnaw and chew damaging attic insulation, fraying electrical wire, and destroying house structures.
To effectively remove squirrels, the wildlife technician will employ a variety of tactics such as live trapping, one-way doors, deterrents, and direct capture. Our Tampa team is made up of dedicated experts who know the best ways to remove squirrels from a home and keep them away
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.
Rodent Pest Control
If you hear scraping sounds in the walls or you see droppings, it’s a good idea to call Trutech. Mice or rats can wreak havoc in your house.
Total mice removal takes more than a few mouse traps. Because rats can up to six litters a year consisting of eight to eighteen pups, effective rodent control requires proper rodent population control and prevention.
The standard mouse trapping duration is normally 5-14 days. We will evaluate the extent of the rodent infestation. We’ll remove the mice and perform mouse exclusion services to prevent them from coming back into your home or office.
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.
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.
Most of the snakes in Tampa Bay are not venomous. There are only four venomous species found in Tampa, 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 Tampa, 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.
When Should I Call a Wildlife Removal Specialist?
The best time to call a wildlife removal company in St. Petersburg is at the first signs of nuisance wildlife.
Many people will try to just start at the hardware store and grab a pile of traps and poisons. If you go that route, you’re making the process more difficult than you have to. Amateur pest removal can quickly grow into a part-time job if you’re not careful.
While an animal is left unattended in your attic, crawlspace, basement, or in your walls, they are damaging your home and ruining your quality of life.
Before you set a trap to catch wildlife in your home, ask yourself:
- Are you prepared to kill the trapped animal?
- Do you know how to properly dispose of an animal carcass?
- Do you know how to release a trapped animal?
- Do you know what bait should be used to ensure you catch the targeted species?
- Do you know how frequently you must check a trap set to capture wildlife?
