In San Antonio, residents are more likely to come across striped skunks than other species. This variety has two white stripes running along its back. Often found near water or along streams, the hooded skunk has similar markings, but is characterized by its soft, longer fur.
Because they prefer dark places, people and pets can unexpectedly discover a skunk only to get sprayed. If you suspect a skunk, do not try to trap it yourself. Not only do skunks carry rabies, but you are also likely to get sprayed.
Raccoons will enter your house in search for food. When they discover an acceptable food source, they will set up denning sites. If you hear the raccoons in your attic at night, it's likely you already have a raccoon den.
Before you spend money on a raccoon trap, take care of the raccoon problem at the source. When you call Trutech, our raccoon-removal professionals will come to you with everything needed to get rid of raccoons without the need for harsh poisons, traps or other repellents.
Bats in San Antonio are a big deal. The world’s largest bat colony is just north of the city in Bracken Caves, where an astonishing 20 million of these animals are estimated to roost. Texas bills itself as the country’s battiest state, with 32 of the 47 domestic species living here.
With such large numbers in the area, infestations of these pests are a common problem. Bats need only a small gap of three-eighths of an inch in diameter to gain access to attics.
A rat problem can quickly get out of control and traps are only a temporary solution for dealing with your rat problem. Instead, call Trutech and let us get right to work. Our professional wildlife-removal experts understand how to get rid of rats and execute the rat-removal quickly and efficiently.

Q&A with your local branch manager:
What are some of the most common wildlife issues that homeowners face in your area?
The most common would be the raccoon, followed by squirrel, rat, skunk, armadillo, bat, opossum, and dead animals. Usually, the homeowner hears noises or digging in their yards that alert them to a potential problem. From time to time the homeowner will see the animal enter the home or have a neighbor point out a hole. We do receive calls for insects, lizards, geckos, and frogs. We also receive calls for simple exclusion work, to secure a home for preventative measures, or new homeowners wanting an inspection to see if there are any entry points. It’s not uncommon to get a call after someone’s alarm system stops working, door bell stops, lights flicker or go out, other service industries are called out for repairs, water leaks, or odors, stains, or accumulation of flies appear. Sprinkler heads also are damaged from time to time because of wildlife activity. We get calls when homeowners see droppings in their attics or yards. We always advise the owners of the potential health hazards associated with fecal matter and the unseen urine and our solution to this issue.
How do the seasons affect wildlife activity in your area?
From December to February skunks are courting and we receive a high number of urgent calls. April to May the female skunks are denning, so again we get a number of calls. Most armadillo calls that we’ve noticed are in the Fall, about September to January, although year round. Bats for the most part are migratory and come into our areas from March to September. We do have year round populations, but those that remain have been here for years in isolated areas of downtown and the surrounding cave systems. Raccoons and squirrels activity is high during the Spring when they are mating and birthing, and again in the Fall and Winter when the temperatures drop. Rats & mice are a constant issue for San Antonio residents and businesses, as are opossums and dead animals. When food is plentiful or temperatures are not fluctuating, animals are content outside of residential and corporate structures.
Any prevention tips for residents in your area?
We would advise homeowners to inspect their homes thoroughly and regularly. Weather in Texas causes warping, shrinkage, expansion, shifting; these changes could open the home up to wildlife. If it’s a questionable gap, crack, crevice, or hole, it should probably be secured. Even weep holes, eave vents, and various roof vents could be secured better than manufacturer install. Make sure siding is secure, transitions from one material to another are secure and finished, garage door corners are secured, roof returns are flush, weather stripping on doors are in good condition. Even decks and pool or patio slabs should be inspected. Decks should be flush to the ground or skirted so they appear flush. Watch for digging around these areas.
When should homeowners call Trutech?
If they are new to the home, they should call a professional that will inspect the home from a wildlife point of view. We would also advise homeowners not to get on ladders or walk on roofs to inspect themselves. We are insured for these dangers and the homeowners are not; we’d rather assume these risks. If noises are heard, electrical oddities occur, strange odors, respiratory issues become constant, or stains appear, while its already too late, the homeowners should call Trutech Wildlife Removal. If other service companies notice animal-related evidence or the possibility of, the homeowner should call our services.
