Wildlife Removal in Atlanta

When it comes to keeping your Atlanta home safe, you likely have all the bases covered.  But what about animal removal?  For over 100 years, Trutech has provided professional, fast and dependable animal removal services to help remove wildlife and prevent them from coming back.

Most wildlife removal services will remove the offending animal from your home or property, but may not take steps to keep it from returning.  Trash cans, leftover food and shelter are all enticing to a wide range of animals, making your home particularly attractive to these unwanted visitors.

At Trutech, our wildlife-removal experts have a great deal of experience working with intrusive animals in a way that is both professional and humane.  For example, a herpetologist understands the behavior of snakes and can use this background knowledge to determine how to get rid of snakes and prevent them from coming back. We have removal and exclusion experts in Atlanta who can help get rid of raccoons, squirrels, snakes, bats, birds and more.

Wildlife Control in Atlanta

Whether you’ve got raccoons in your trash, a snake in your basement or bats in your attic, you know how important professional wildlife removal can be. Not only do you want to avoid getting bitten, stung or otherwise harmed by an animal, you also want to protect your home and make it less inviting for wildlife to return.  The wildlife removal experts at Trutech understand how and have the experience to get rid of all types of common pests that have decided to make your home their own.

Beyond the animal themselves, their nests and droppings can also present a problem – causing property damage or even health issues.  Bat and other animal feces can contribute to a host of health problems, making it even more imperative that you call a trained animal removal expert like Trutech if you have seen or suspect an animal in or around your home that may be causing damage.

Squirrel Removal

Squirrels can be an all-too-present nuisance in Atlanta. Removing squirrels may seem easy, but if you manage to catch and relocate a squirrel, you’ll need to go as many as five or more miles away to successfully relocate it. Squirrels can also cause property damage, so if you suspect that you may have squirrels in your home, it’s important that you call a squirrel-removal professional from Trutech to remove it as soon as possible. Luckily, our team of wildlife-removal specialists are just a phone call away.

It’s important to note that there are many squirrel removal products on the market such as baits and poisons, but in many cases, we do not recommend using these products to get rid of a squirrel in Atlanta, as pets or even children may come in contact with these harmful items. If squirrels are a nuisance in your home, garden or property, call an expert at Trutech to help you get rid of it safely and effectively.

Get Rid of Snakes

Getting rid of snakes in your Atlanta, GA home may seem like a challenge. Is it poisonous? Some snakes that call the Atlanta area home are indeed venomous, and it takes a wildlife-removal professional to remove them safely from the premises. As with squirrels, there are snake-removal traps and baits, but these are not recommended for do-it-yourself snake removal as they can potentially cause more problems than they solve.

Snakes often look at homes as a quiet, dark and cool place to hide. They‘re often attracted by mice or other animals, so it’s important that you also have the offending attractant removed as well if you want to remove the snakes in or around your home. Some snakes also pose a significant threat of injury, which is why we recommend allowing one of our trained snake-removal specialists to safely remove the animal that’s entered your home.

Raccoon Problems in Atlanta?

Being a large city, the allure of food is too irresistible for raccoons in Atlanta, which is why we often receive calls from Atlanta homeowners looking to get rid of raccoons that are either invading their trash, stealing their pets’ food or generally being a nuisance.

Many people use mothballs to get rid of raccoons, and while mothballs do have an unpleasant odor that raccoons tend to avoid, the best way to permanently get rid of raccoons is to take steps to protect your trash and keep your home and yard free of debris and things that can attract raccoons in the first place.  Using mothballs to get rid of raccoons may get rid of the raccoon, but will also expose your family and pets to the hazardous chemicals they’re made of.

The best way to get rid of raccoons is to trust a professional wildlife-removal company in Atlanta, like Trutech, to safely trap the raccoon and remove it from your property.  You should also take the necessary steps to secure any areas where trash or debris could attract unwanted animals like raccoons, to prevent them from coming back.

We strongly advise that you not try removing a raccoon from your home on your own. Although they look cute and fuzzy, raccoons can carry diseases, including rabies. Raccoons also carry parasites and other diseases that can be transferred to humans or pets through a bite or a scratch.  Trutech’s raccoon-removal professionals understand the dangers of raccoon removal in Atlanta, and work to safely, effectively remove the invader from your home or property.

Removal of Dead Animals

It’s an unpleasant fact of life – animals die.  Even more unfortunately, you may not realize that there’s a dead animal whose body is decomposing in your attic, basement, walls or other areas of your home.  And as the body continues to decompose, it not only creates a foul odor, but can also present a health hazard to your home’s inhabitants.

Oftentimes in trying to get rid of a wildlife infestation, people will lay out traps or poisons. Some animals may take these baits back to their favorite “hiding spot” within your home, where they will then expire. It is very important that if you find a dead animal in or around your Atlanta home that you do not handle the body or carcass. You should also prevent any pets from coming into contact with the deceased body, as this can transfer disease or parasites to them. Instead, call a trained wildlife-removal expert from Trutech and allow us to safely remove and dispose of the body.

Dead animal corpses can carry a variety of diseases, as well as become a hotbed for attracting scavengers that may feed on the corpse, including opossums, flies, vultures and more. By calling an dead-animal-removal expert at Trutech to remove the offending creature, you will be taking smart step in the right direction toward eliminating that tell-tale odor and protecting your family.

Local Testimonials

Extremely Pleased with our Trutech Experience

Josh Jamison is an excellent representative for Trutech!

My husband and I discovered a rat problem at our house in November, and our Orkin Service Manager referred us to Trutech. Josh came in and took charge immediately. He knew exactly what to do and he set about doing it at once. He was very thorough in explaining his plan of action and kept me informed all along the way. Within less than two weeks, there was no sign of a problem which we had seen growing quickly.

Josh exudes confidence and has a strong sense of customer service. He responded immediately to every phone call I placed. I dialed his number by mistake this week, didn’t leave a message, and even though his work with us was finished, I still heard back from him within five minutes to see what I needed. He was careful in moving items in the house and in protecting our carpets when he came into the house from outside.

My husband and I are extremely pleased with our Trutech experience. The technician creates the customer experience, and you have a winner in Josh.

Trutech Pest Control has always done a great job for me. They have removed wasp nests twice, killed mice occasionally and treated for India moths, roaches and of course ants - all of which have been great treatments over the years. I highly recommend them as they are courteous and professional.
