Wildlife Prevention

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.

Nuisance Wildlife in Fort Worth

Snake Control


There are over one hundred species of snakes in Texas, but only seven are venomous in Fort Worth.

A snake enters a home looking for food. If you need snake removal in Fort Worth, you likely have rodents in your house too. Don't try to remove the venomous snake yourself.

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.


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.

Rat Pest Control


If you hear scraping sounds in the walls or you see droppings, it’s a good idea to call Trutech. 

Total rat removal takes more than a few rat traps. Because rats can up to six litters a year consisting of eight to eighteen pups, effective rat control requires proper rodent population control and prevention.

The standard rat trapping duration is normally 5-14 days. We will evaluate the extent of the rodent infestation. We’ll remove the mice and provide rat prevention services to keep them from coming back into your home or office.


Armadillo Control

Armadillos present little danger to people. The greatest danger they pose is to your landscaping. Controlling the animal can protect your lawn and garden and the integrity of structures like decks and driveways on your property.

Capturing an armadillo with a live trap can be difficult. Habitat modification and exclusions are extremely effective in removing armadillos from your lawn. Water your garden beds in the morning because armadillos prefer loose soil. Armadillos are nocturnal, and the soil will have dried out by the mid-afternoon.

Squirrel Control

Squirrels can cause considerable damage to your home. Both gray squirrels and fox squirrels can be found in Fort Worth, but North Texas residents are more likely to have fox 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.


Skunk Removal

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.

Gopher Control


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.

Opossum Removal

Baby Opossum Trapping

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.

Bat Removal

bat Removal

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.

When Should I Call a Wildlife Removal Specialist?

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

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.

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?

I’ve used Trutech for many years. The techs have always been great, pet friendly and we have truly enjoyed our different people over this time. In our experience we have maintained the same service tech for long periods of time before they moved up and we got a new one, this to say the consistency of having the same person come to your home month after month is reassuring. They have always been available when issues come up between monthly service visits or if we have questions.
