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 Removal

Squirrel field1

Of the four squirrels that inhabit North Carolina, the eastern gray squirrel and the southern flying squirrel are most likely to enter your home. The fox squirrel's range does include Wake County but they are not as common. 

If you hear scratching noises that start early in the morning, it is likely a squirrel. Squirrels damage your home by constantly gnawing, building nests, and leaving their droppings. Effective squirrel control includes trapping, removing, and preventing squirrel infestations. 

Bird Control & Removal

Pigeon Identification

The most common nuisance birds in North Carolina are crows, pigeons, red-winged blackbirds, starlings, and woodpeckers. Birds can be noisy, messy, and destructive. Effective bird control depends on species and legalities. Of the 475 wild bird species in North Carolina, only non-native birds to North America like pigeons, starlings, and house sparrows can legally be caught and trapped.

Effective bird control includes habitat modification, exclusions, repellents, and trapping. Trapping birds are difficult; prevention and exclusion are much more effective to get rid of nuisance birds.

Rodent Pest Control


Getting rid of rats involves more than a few rat traps. Rats can up to six litters a year consisting of eight to eighteen pups. You must control the population and prevent any additional rodents from entering your home. If you hear scraping sounds in the walls or you see droppings, it’s a good idea to call Trutech. 

We will evaluate the extent of the rodent infestation. We’ll remove the rats or mice and perform rodent exclusion services to prevent them from coming back into your home or office.

Bat Removal

bat Removal

Bats do not create any holes but can squeeze through a hole as small as 1/2 an inch.

All seventeen bat species are protected in North Carolina. Four of the species are federally protected. Because bats play an integral ecological role, a bat colony in Durham County cannot be evicted between May 1 to July 31.

Humane bat removal consists of sealing all entry points and install a one-way bat valve.

Snake Control


If you see a snake in your house, it is important to contact a professional. While alarming to see a snake in your home, only six of the thirty-eight snakes in North Carolina are venomous. Four of the venomous snakes are protected and should not be handled or disturbed.

A snake enters a home looking for food. If you need snake removal in Durham, 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.

Frequently Asked Wildlife Questions

Hi, I have 1-2 bats that are clinging to a screen on the outside of my house, under an attic gable vent, and their guano has built up quite a bit. They are NOT in the house, but I'd rather not have them on the outside either. Do you provide guano removal? And could you possibly put a screen on the outside of the vent to prevent the bats from returning? This is a high vent that requires a tall ladder. -- Apex, NC

This is something we deal with on a regular basis. If you have this significant of guano buildup, I would suggest not only doing exactly what you have been talking about but also letting us inspect your property for any other potential entry points. When the bats are evicted from the vent, they will naturally look for another way into their -- or in this case, your -- home. Also. while you may not see bats in the attic or home, you are not necessarily in the clear. The urine and guano of bats are very corrosive and can deteriorate the bottom of gable vents. Eventually, the vent will rot and bats will inhabit the space between the walls and brick, siding, or rock. Don’t procrastinate, as guano can build up fast inside these voids. This not only causes the health risks you hear about but can attract other bats for years to come.
