Nestled between the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and the Nantahala National Forest, Western North Carolina is a magnet for outdoor enthusiasts and home to over 400 vertebrate species. One of the few rainforests in the contiguous 48 states, the Appalachian temperate rain forest has over 100,000 acres of unspoiled wildlands and over 90,000 acres of old-growth forests.

Most wildlife in Western North Carolina avoid humans, but buildings provide food and shelter. Wildlife in your home is not safe for you or the animal. Trutech provides humane and effective solutions to remove the animal from your home and property.

Wildlife in Your Home

Different wildlife will likely enter your home at different times of the year. Rodents like squirrels, flying squirrels, rats, and mice could invade your home at any of the year but tend to seek shelter during the winter. Raccoons and bats are more likely to seek shelter in the spring and summer to care for their young. Wildlife like skunks and opossums will enter your yard and burrow during the summer months.

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

Nuisance Wildlife in Western North Carolina

Typical wildlife affecting homes in Haywood, Transylvania, Jackson, Clay, and Cherokee are typically the animals you would find in the national forests. Animals have the same basic needs as humans-- food, water, and shelter. They enter a home looking for resources to satisfying those basic needs. Some of the most common nuisance wildlife in Wester North Carolina are raccoons, bats, woodpeckers, rodents, squirrels, flying squirrels, and snakes.

They did a very good job. They were responsive and informative. The one thing they could have done better is to use a color coordinated caulk to seal the openings. The technician used a light colored caulk and our cabin has dark brown wood trim.

Joe, of Trutech, was great. I had a bat problem on my back deck. He was able to seal off the area where they would hang out and provide them a one way door to exit should any bats still be hanging around. After a few days he returned to remove the door. I have not seen any evidence of returning bats. I would recommend them highly for any critter or wildlife issue.

We purchased an older home that had not been occupied for a year. It had multiple issues re: mice, snake skins and possibly flying squirrels. Our service rep responded quickly and clearly explained what needed repairs were required. We have continued monitoring but within one week our problems seem behind us. Excellent responsive, professional service!

We were using Terminix and had a terrible problem with a Bee infestation in our home. Terminix would do nothing about it so we called Trutech. They came promptly and dealt with it. It was terrible. We had over 300 bees in our house swarming through a chimney. Thanks to Trutech it was solved. They got rid of the bees and sealed the chimney. Since then we have used Trutech exclusively and dropped Terminix totally
