Wildlife in your attic, basement, walls, or crawlspace can affect your quality of life and your health. Active animals will keep you up at night. Most mammals can introduce additional pests and diseases into your home. If an animal is in the house, it causes damage. The longer the animal cohabitates in the house, the more damage it causes.

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 St. Joseph

The geography of Buchanan County provides a wonderful environment for wildlife. Animals have the same basic needs as people – food, water, and shelter.

Wildlife in Your Home

Generally, wildlife will make a home out of your home in the spring and winter. During the spring, mammals seek shelter to safely rear their young. During the winter, animals seek shelter from the cold, dry winters.

Attics, crawlspaces, and basements make ideal shelters for animals. Even if you never see an animal in your home, there will be plenty of evidence you need wildlife pest control.

Signs of Wildlife

  • Unusual noises in mornings or at night
  • Unpleasant aromas
  • Damage to the outside of your home
  • Debris in house
  • Rub Marks/Paw Prints
  • Animal runs around property

Raccoon Removal

Raccoon Removal

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.

Squirrel Control

Squirrels can cause considerable damage to your home. Both gray squirrels and fox squirrels can be found in Kansas, but St. Joseph 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.

Squirrels can impact your quality of life. They are active from dawn to dusk. The most common sign of squirrels is the sound of scurrying early in the morning.

To effectively remove squirrels, the wildlife technician will employ a variety of tactics such as live trapping, one-way doors, deterrents, and direct capture.

 

Bat Removal

Big Brown Bat, Cave Myotis, Eastern Red Bat, Hoary Bat, Mexican Free-tail bat and the Tri-Colored bat all have ranges that include St. Joseph.

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.

Mice Pest Control

If you hear scraping sounds in the walls or you see droppings, it’s a good idea to call Trutech. 

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.

 

Gopher Control

gopher

The plains pocket gopher ranges over most of Kansas.

You probably won’t see a gopher or encounter one in your home. A gopher is identified by their burrow and a large mound of dirt that sits above the tunnel. Their preferred diet is pieces of plants accessible underground.

Gopher control is most effective during spring and fall when gophers are most active near the surface. Activity is usually indicated by fresh mounds of soil. Time, energy, and resources can be wasted by trying to control gophers in an unoccupied burrow. Baiting and trapping are the two most practical and efficient methods.

Chipmunk Control

Chipmunks pose no real danger to human. 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.

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.

Moving bird feeders away from homes also discourages chipmunks from burrowing near human dwellings. The odor of moth balls may also repel the rodents.

When Should I Call a Wildlife Removal Specialist?

The best time to call a wildlife removal company in St. Jospeh 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?
