Wildlife We Remove in Asheville, NC
Asheville is situated in a unique place. Situated in the middle of the Southern Appalachians, some of the oldest mountains in the United States, surrounded by forests and crisscrossed with rivers, Western North Carolina is home to over 400 vertebrate species. Most wildlife in Western North Carolina avoid humans, but buildings provide food and shelter.
Animals like raccoons, squirrels, flying squirrels, chipmunks, bats, and birds are common nuisance animals. Rodents like rats and mice are also prevalent. Typical signs of nuisance wildlife include unusual noises, strange odors, damage to exterior of buildings, and paw prints or tracks.
Trutech provides humane and effective wildlife control to remove the animal and protect your property from future animal infestations.
Common Nuisance Wildlife
Asheville Wildlife Removal Services
Step 1: InspectionOur comprehensive wildlife removal process starts with a whole home inspection. We start the inspection by asking questions so we can understand exactly what you’re experiencing. We want to address any signs of wildlife you have noticed like hearing strange sounds or smelling unusual odors. When a Trutech technician arrives at your home, we will start by asking questions about your experience with the nuisance wildlife at hand. Once we have a firm grasp on the issues the property owner is facing, a thorough inspection of the interior and exterior of the home begins. This includes looking at the attic, crawlspace, roof, and any possible entry points. Since each species and home is different, the length of the inspection can vary. It can take between 30 minutes to 3 hours to accurately evaluate the extent of the wildlife nuisance issue.
Step 2: The PlanWith the results of the inspection, we share our findings with you. And share how we will solve the problem for you. Although each wildlife control plan is unique to the home, it may include live trapping, direct capture, one-way doors, or deterrents. Before any work begins, we make sure that you are comfortable with the steps being taken to resolve the nuisance wildlife issue.
Step 3: Get To WorkIf you approve of the plan, we will set up a time to put it into place. After the animal removal has taken place, we will repair any damage caused by the critter. Additionally, we will apply sanitizing and ectoparasite agents to the affected areas. Once the plan is executed, your home will be returned to its normal condition.
Step 4: Full Home ExclusionWildlife removal is just one part of the plan. Many plans include wildlife control measures to prevent any future problems. This is often completed by installing a full home exclusion. The goal is to create physical barriers to prevent animals from entering your home in the future. A few possible exclusion techniques include gable vents, ridge vents, crawlspace vents, roof returns, and plumbing stacks. With the appropriate exclusions in place, you can rest easy knowing that a long-term solution is in place to protect your home from nuisance wildlife.
Guarantee and WarrantyOnce installed, Trutech offers a one-year warranty on full home exclusions. Plus, there is a 100% satisfaction guarantee. If you aren’t satisfied with the initial work, Trutech will send out a service manager to inspect the work completed and make any necessary adjustments.
Common Wildlife in Asheville
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 bird feeders. 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 eastern gray squirrel is the most common and adopted as the state mammal in 1969. Southern Appalchia is also home to both Southern and Northern Flying Squirrels.
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.
If you hear scraping sounds in the walls or you see droppings, it’s a good idea to call Trutech.
Total mice removal takes more than a few mouse 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 mouse exclusion services to prevent them from coming back into your home or office.

We provide customized solutions to each individual customer so that we may solve the issue as quickly, efficiently, and cost-effectively as possible. The size of the house, type of animal, number of nuisance animals, and length of time of infestation affect the estimated price of wildlife removal.
An estimate may change based on the amount of animal activity or work needed to be done. All estimates are finalized with an exact price before any work begins.
Our goal is to remove any wildlife as humanely as possible — often that means catching and releasing the animal.
Trutech® does not hire subcontractors for animal removal services. We employ expert technicians who are provided ongoing education and training in all aspects of animal control and removal.

Yes! We are licensed and insured.
We start by first removing the wildlife on your property, and cleaning up any damage. From there we’ll work with you to create a customized prevention plan so you won’t have the same issue again.
Typically an animal dies in your home because it became trapped in a hard-to-reach and hidden area. Our expert technicians have the experience and knowledge to find it and then safely remove the carcass from your home.
Our Wildlife Technicians use a pet-safe odor eliminator made of natural organisms and enzymes that consume decaying organic odor-causing matter, eliminating the source of the lingering odor. We use aerosols, oxidizing agents, foggers, and disinfectants with germicides to deodorize until nature completes this task for you.
You should consider a full home exclusion after the smell has been neutralized. Nuisance wildlife found its way into your house once. That entrance leaves your home vulnerable to future animal infestations. Full home exclusions are the most effective form of wildlife control.
