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

The oak-hickory forests in Southern Pennsylvania are the ideal squirrel habitat. Of the give squirrels that inhabit Pennsylvania, the gray squirrel and flying squirrel are most likely to enter your home. 

If you hear scratching noises that start early in the morning, it is likely a  tree squirrel. Flying squirrels are nocturnal. 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

Birds can be noisy, messy, and destructive. The most common nuisance birds in Pennsylvania are blackbirds, shrews, house sparrows, waterfowls, and woodpeckers. Effective bird control depends on species and legalities. Due to the Migratory Bird Act, only non-native birds to North America like pigeons, starlings, and house sparrows can legally be caught and trapped.

While it is legal to trap some nuisance birds, trapping may not  bethe most effective method for bird control in South Central Pennsylvania. Habitat modification and exclusions keep the nuisance away from your property.

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

If you have a bat colony roosting in your attic, it is likely the little brown bat or the big brown bat. Female bats seek the shelter of an attic during the spring to give birth. Pups are generally birthed in June and ready to fly by mid-July.

It is illegal to exterminate bats or trap and remove bats during maternity season!

Bats return to the same Pennsylvania neighborhood year after year. The most effective method of bat removal is exclusion. Once the pups can fly, Trutech Wildlife Technicians will seal all entry points (bats do not create any holes but can squeeze through a hole as small as 1/2 an inch) and install a one-way bat valve. The bat colony will naturally evict itself.

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 Cary, 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 have been removed, we'll prevent any future pest animal infestations.
