Dallas Wildlife Removal
Texas has unique and vibrant wildlife that is fun to appreciate from afar, but that appreciation can quickly turn sour when the animals and pests of the wild west find their way into your home and onto your property.
Every unique animal problem begins with an initial inspection. Our Wildlife Consultant will investigate the property for signs of wildlife. Our Wildlife Consultant creates and implements a custom wildlife program to provide wildlife control.
Once the animal has safely been removed, it is important to prevent any future animal intruders. Habitat modifications and home exclusions are two of the most effective and humane methods to keep animals out of your home.
Animal Damage Repair
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.

For most people, getting a wild animal out of their house is a much bigger project than expected.
There is no one-size-fits-all solution; each job requires a custom approach. We inspect every home and build a custom plan to resolve any wildlife problems.
Our Integrated Wildlife and Pest Control programs aim to humanely remove and prevent any future intrusions. We provide full home exclusions in which we repair and restore your home from the damage caused by the animal(s).
A rat problem can quickly get out of control and rat traps are only a temporary solution. Instead, call Trutech and let us get right to work.
An integrated trapping and exclusion strategy is essential for rodent pest control. To effectively get rid of rats or mice you need to control the population. Female rats can have six litters in one year.
The standard trapping duration is normally 5-14 days. The wildlife technician will determine the best type of trap, placement of trap, and the best bait to use. The technician will repair and reinforce any potential entry points to keep rodents out. Rats leave pheromone trails that other rats can follow into your home.
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.
The most common squirrel to invade your attic in Dallas is the Fox Squirrel. Squirrels are active during the day so you might hear squealing, running, or gnawing early in the morning. If you hear those noises at night, you might have flying squirrels. Smaller than a tree squirrel, flying squirrels are nocturnal.
Squirrels' teeth never stop growing so they constantly gnaw and chew damaging attic insulation, fraying electrical wire, and destroying house structures.
To effectively remove squirrels, the wildlife technician will employ a variety of tactics such as live trapping, one-way doors, deterrents, and direct capture.
Armadillos present little danger to people. Armadillos are capable of causing significant damage to property; when they dig their burrows into a home’s foundation or into the surrounding yard, the results are unsightly and sometimes even unsafe.
Dallas’ Trutech team has the tools and the experience necessary to ensure a speedy solution to your armadillo problem. Call us today, and our local experts will work with you to make sure your home is protected from these nuisance animals.
Rattlesnakes are a common sight in Texas (over 100 species in Texas), and they may occasionally slither their way into your home. When they do, never try to remove these venomous reptiles yourself. Most snake bites happen when someone takes unnecessary or foolish risks with a snake. Snakes have an essential role in the Texas environment so please do not kill a snake.
Generally, the most harm snakes inflict is scaring someone. If there’s a snake in your house, you need to call a professional. A snake is in your home for one reason- food. If you have a snake problem, you likely have another wildlife pest problem. The wildlife technician will help remove the snake safely and help uncover any other wildlife pest infestations.
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.
Generally docile, skunks pose little risk to people or pets. Getting sprayed is the most likely thing to happen if you surprise a skunk in your yard.
Active during the night, skunks can destroy your property in several ways. Skunks will dig up sections of grass to pull up bulbs and other plants.
Skunks are considered "High-Risk" animals for rabies in Texas. If you have noticed the signs of a skunk living on your property, contact a professional wildlife control operator to ensure your safety and the skunks' safety.
Texas bills itself as the country’s battiest state, with 32 of the 47 domestic species living here.A colony of bats in your attic can cause problems. The accumulation of guano can weaken the structure of your home and cause respiratory diseases.
Bats are protected by federal and state regulations. It is illegal to kill bats with chemicals, and you should not exclude bats during the maternity season.
Once the young can survive on their own, the wildlife technician seals the entry points (bats need only a small gap of three-eighths of an inch in diameter to gain access to attics) and installs a bat valve. Once the valve is installed, your house will be bat-free in 3-7 days.
Opossums are not prone to aggression. They pose the greatest threat to your garden, but they will eat almost anything.
Opossums do carry diseases so do not approach them haphazardly. Opossums will also look for safe nesting areas under decks, inside garages, or under foundations. Sealing ground-level entrances and burying wire mesh are effective ways to stop an opossum infestation.
WHEN TO CALL AN WILDLIFE REMOVAL PROFESSIONAL
Many people wait to call a wildlife removal professional until they actually see the offending animal, but by then it may be too late. Wildlife can cause damage to your home and property, which is why even if you suspect a wild animal or notice unusual droppings, it’s worth giving our Tulsa wildlife removal office a call and letting us check it out.
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 the property
Before you set a trap to catch wildlife in your home, ask yourself:
- Are you prepared to kill the trapped animal?
- Do you know how to properly dispose of an animal carcass?
- Do you know how to release a trapped animal?
- Do you know what bait should be used to ensure you catch the targeted species?
- Do you know how frequently you must check a trap set to capture wildlife?
Not only do you need to consider what to do with a wild animal after you catch it, but you also need to answer how will you stop a critter from getting back in? Whatever attracts one animal will attract future wildlife pests. You must identify any potential entry points and seal them with critter-proof materials. Rodents can easily chew through most construction materials.
Trutech Wildlife Technicians have years of experience and training in integrated wildlife damage management.
Wildlife damage management includes:
• Reinforcing potential entry points
• Wildlife control
• Locate entry points
• Set and check traps
• Seal all possible entries
• Clean & disinfect

Hello, I’m having pigeons nesting on my roof and trying to get the service to remove it. -Carrollton, TX
Here is how we would approach the problem:
There are many reasons pigeons choose to roost and nest on roofs. In some instances, periodic harassment is sufficient to move the pigeons elsewhere. Often, however, more aggressive means must be used. The two most common methods are trapping and deterrents.
Trapping involves physically removing the animal from the location. This works well for short term results and for initial population reductions. Deterrents are designed to make a specific area uncomfortable for the pigeon, forcing it to move elsewhere. The advantage of this method is that it is “always-on” and displays long term effectiveness when maintained properly.
I have heard it is possible to attach metal pieces that are pliable to the bottom corners of garage doors to help close the gaps and keep rodents out. Is that something you do? - Frisco, TX
Initially, we would plan an inspection to figure out the types of problems due to the gaps in the garage. The inspection would let us know what animal/insect is using the gaps as entry points. These findings are important to craft a solution. One such solution could be to seal gaps in the garage with a sealant foam for insects. If we are dealing with rodents, we can take different approach and use metal flashing to secure the area. The inspection and work itself could take up to a few hours, depending on the severity of the issue and the amount of work that needs to be completed.
