Wildlife Pest Prevention

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.

Nuisance Wildlife in Southeastern Oklahoma

Raccoon Removal

Raccoon Removal

Raccoons inhabit all parts of the state. 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.

Squirrel Control

Squirrel field1

Squirrels can cause considerable damage to your home. Tree squirrels in Bloomington and Columbus include the gray squirrels, red squirrels, and southern flying squirrels. 

Strange noises like squealing, running, or gnawing are some of the most apparent clues squirrels are in your attic. Gray and red squirrels are active during the day; flying squirrels are nocturnal. Depending on when you hear these noises can help determine which type of squirrel is in your house.

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.

 

Rodent Pest Control

mouse

If you hear scraping sounds in the walls or you see droppings, it’s a good idea to call Trutech. Rats and mice in your home can cause damage and harm your health.

Complete rodent pest control 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 rats or mice and perform exclusion services to prevent them from coming back into your home or office.

 

Groundhog Control

Lawns appeal to groundhogs in Bloomington or Columbus because they flock to open areas with loose soil and good drainage. Garden plots, especially those with tender young sprouts, also attract plant-eating pests. Groundhogs (woodchucks, whistle pigs) hibernate in their burrows during the winter so you won’t notice them until late February in Indiana.

In addition, groundhogs leave behind deep holes in yards. These extend into tunnel systems where the pests raise their young and hide from predators. Burrows can cause falls, mower damage, and soil collapses. These tunnels may even lead to foundation problems if they are too close to the home.

Fencing made of heavy poultry wire is effective to keep groundhogs away from landscaping and gardens. Scarecrows provide only temporary relief. Traps can effectively control groundhogs, though they come with some problems. Burrow systems have many entrances and exits, making it easy for the pests to elude capture.

Bat Removal

bat Removal

Bats are most likely to enter your home in late spring. During the winter, bats hibernate in one of Indiana's 2900 caves.

Bats in the attic 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.

As a protected species, there are certain regulations and stipulations for humane, legal removal from your home. Bats should not be removed if flightless pups are present in the home.

Snake Control

rattlesnake_150x150

Of the thirty-two native snakes, only four are venomous in Indiana. But all snakes are beneficial to the environment. If you have a snake in your home, avoid killing it.

A snake enters a home looking for food. If you need snake removal in Bloomington and Columbus, 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.

 

Mole Control

mole in the ground

Moles dig extensive burrows through your lawn that can undermine structures like porches, sheds, driveways and destroy gardens and landscaping.

Because moles spend most of their time underground, the mounds are the easiest way to identify a mole infestation. Moles mounds look like mountains and are built directly over the tunnel.

Time, energy, and resources can be wasted by trying to control these animals in an unoccupied burrow. Effective control includes a strategic approach to baiting and trapping. Buried fencing around garden plots can help protect your vegetables and flowers.

Beaver Control

beaver_200x156

Beaver dams create thriving ecosystems, but nuisance beavers also cause flooding in residential areas and on public lands. Beavers are extremely diligent workers and will continue causing issues until they are removed from the property.

Consult a professional wildlife technician before you attempt to remove beavers from your property.

Due to certain state and federal laws, attempting to remove beaver dams can result in costly fines or jail time.

Beavers target an area and work there consistently until they need more resources. As a result, they will develop a “slide.” These are visible mudslides that the beavers create from repeatedly going in and out of the water. It’s important to locate beaver slides in order to have a more successful trapping session.

The process of beaver removal typically takes 10-14 days.

Chipmunk Control

Chipmunks pose no real danger to humans. They rarely enter homes but will explore basements and crawlspaces for food. The more pressing threat is damage to lawns and gardens. Their burrows are quite extensive that include areas for sleeping, storing food, defecating, and give birth. After birth, chipmunk kits will not move to their own territory until 6-8 weeks.

Moving bird feeders away from homes also discourages chipmunks from burrowing near human dwellings. There are all sorts of chipmunk repellents, deterrents, and baits on the market, but these do little to truly get rid of chipmunks.

You need a much more robust and dedicated plan to get rid of these pests To keep chipmunks away from homes and gardens, cover vulnerable areas with hardware cloth or wire mesh and seal any cracks or holes along exterior walls. Cage traps and rat snap traps can be used. Make sure rat snap traps don't catch songbirds.

 

When Should I Call a Wildlife Removal Specialist?

The best time to call a wildlife removal company in Bloomington and Columbus is at the first signs of nuisance wildlife.

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:

    1. Are you prepared to kill the trapped animal?
    2. Do you know how to properly dispose of an animal carcass?
    3. Do you know how to release a trapped animal?
    4. Do you know what bait should be used to ensure you catch the targeted species?
    5. Do you know how frequently you must check a trap set to capture wildlife?

We have been using TruTech for over a year and are extremely happy with their service. We live across the street from a retention pond and there is also a culvert behind our house. We have had snakes and mice for years. Tru Tech makes bi-monthly visits and this has kept our visitors from returning. Our tech is always friendly, prompt, and thorough. I highly recommend this company .

I’m a bit frustrated with my most recent service. Really nice guy, but he called on a Friday night at 5:30 saying he was 20 minutes away with no prior notice. I think he was trying to do a thorough job, but he stayed past 9 pm in the pitch black dark, and accidentally broke my dog fence, which I then had to deal with and fix. He didn’t even mention it until after the alarm went off. It’s a bit invasive to assume a customer is available on a Friday night at a moments notice for 3 hours. Again, nice young man, I would just prefer prior notice and for someone to come when they can see and found it quite odd. Update 9/28/20: The district manager ‘JR’ called me today and really took the time to listen to my concerns and address them as well as assess the situation to best meet my individual needs. He was willing to more than make up for my inconvenience and was willing to offer some additional assistance. I sincerely appreciate the level of service he offered so I am changing my rating from a 2 to a 4. I’m only leaving it at a 4 due to the previous frustrations, but if the rating were based on just the customer service I received today, I would make it a 5-star review. Here’s hoping for no more squirrels. Thanks so much JR!!!

Trutech did trap and remove 7 racoons. But the installation of the steel mesh around the bottom perimeter of my two outdoor mini barns wasn't done properly. Also a service manager came out to my house to observe the poorly done job and proceeded to lie to me about the two roof vents I had. Saying raccoons could get in the attic. After paying dearly for this job I'm sadly disappointed and wouldn't recommend Trutech to any of my neighbors. They also have critter problems.

I highly recommend potential customers to contact Trutech. They sets up quick appointments. and does a thorough evaluation to Nuisance animals destroyed stone exterior walls and mortar around the outside of my house. They are now destroying and entering into my stone fireplace. I thought this was taken care of, until last night when one entered through my fireplace prior to rain drops. Christian has given me his contact information to let know if I need anything. I will contact him Monday morning to let him know of my new visualization at face to face. **Beware before considering hiring another trapped animals --- " Ask do you charge per animal trapped?" Or "Do you charge for nest trapped?"
