Nuisance Wildlife in Upstate South Carolina

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

Squirrels can cause considerable damage to your home. Both gray squirrels and fox squirrels can be found in South Carolina, but Clemson residents are more likely to have gray 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.

 

Rodent Pest Control

If you hear scraping sounds in the walls or you see droppings, it’s a good idea to call Trutech. Rodents like mice and rats can considerable damage to your property.

Total rodent pest control takes more than a few rat 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 rodent prevention services to prevent them from coming back into your home or office.

 

Stinging Insect Pest Control

Have you heard the buzz? Getting rid of a hive of stinging insects can be dangerous. Whether bees, wasps, dirt daubers, hornets, yellow jackets or ants, Trutech can help you reclaim your porch or yard from a hive.

Depending on the type of insect, Trutech can effectively solve your stinging insect infestation.

Since bees are helpful to the environment, it’s best to not seek extermination. Additionally abandoned hives can grow moldy or attract rats. Trutech can perform exclusion with the safety of both the beehives and your home in mind. Consider your bee problems solved!

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 McAlester.

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.

Snake Control

Of the thirty-eight snakes native to South Carolina, five are venomous. 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 Clemson, 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.

 

Beaver Control

Clemson borders Lake Hartwell and is only twenty miles from Lake Keowee. All the streams and lakes make it an ideal habitat for beavers.

Beavers target an area and work there consistently until they need more resources. As a result, they will develop a “slide.” These are visible mud slides 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. Removing trees or wrapping trunks in hardware cloth and controlling water level deter beavers.

Skunk Control

Skunks typically invade Clemson yards in search for food and a safe place to burrow. Sheds, porches, and foundations make ideal burrowing locations which can lead to structural damage. To avoid a skunk’s spray rely on professional handling and skunk trapping. Removing food supplies is one of the most effective ways to prevent a skunk from entering your property.

Skunks can thrive in urban and suburban settings because they tolerate living near humans. Skunks typically invade yards in search of food or a safe place to burrow. Breeding season typically occurs from LOCAL TIME females create a den to give birth to two to ten kits. Skunks are not true hibernators. If the weather is above freezing, skunks can be active at night.

Sheds, porches, and foundations make ideal burrowing locations. A skunk den can lead to structural damage.

Generally docile, the greatest threat people and pets face is the spray from a skunk. To avoid a skunk’s spray rely on professional handling and skunk trapping. Removing food supplies is one of the most effective ways to prevent a skunk from entering your property.

Chipmunk Control

Chipmunks mate twice a year. The first litter of two to five kits is born in April and May; the second litter in July and August. Chipmunks enter their burrows in fall.

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 Clemson 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?
