Whether you are a homeowner with nuisance wildlife on your property or a commercial entity with a rodent problem on your hands, the trained professionals at Trutech can help! We specialize in wildlife removal and exclusion services to critter-proof your home.

Nestled in the Piedmont region of North Carolina, the growing city of Charlotte is ripe with opportunities for human-wildlife interactions. As the city continues to grow, animals will adapt to the changing urban and suburban habitats. Homeowners should expect to run into the most wildlife issues throughout the spring and fall. That’s because animals are actively having babies and getting ready for winter. Hot summer days will usually keep wildlife out of the attic for the warmest parts of the year. But the cool winter months can drive animals towards the warm and dry shelter or your home.

After all, animals need shelter and food too! But unfortunately, wild animals are not helpful house guests. Depending on the critter in question, you may face extensive property damage or potential health hazards. So, if you encounter any wildlife in your home, it’s time to call in the Trutech professionals. We can help you remove the animals humanely and critter-proof your home for the future.

We work with residential customers as well as governmental organizations and commercial entities to perform complete wildlife removal and exclusion services. Need to critter-proof your home? Let the trained experts at Trutech help!

Common Nuisance Wildlife

Charlotte Wildlife Removal Services

Trutech Wildlife Service has been helping both homeowners and commercial businesses protect property and public health from nuisance wildlife for decades. With a focus on the best customer experience possible, we work efficiently protect properties from unwelcome wildlife.

 

Here’s what to expect when working with Trutech:

Step 1: Inspection

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 facing the property owner, 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 Plan

With 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 Work

If you approve of the plan, we will set up a time to start the wildlife removal process. 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 original condition.

Step 4: Full Home Exclusions

Wildlife 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.

Step 5: Guarantee and Warranty

Once 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.

Wildlife Removal in Charlotte

Bat Removal

Property owners may discover bats roosting in attics, using these shelters to give birth. The mating season in North Carolina is from May 1 to July 31. During that time, it is illegal for residents to remove bats

The most humane method of bat removal is to install a bat valve and perform a whole home exclusion.  Once the pups can survive and fly on their own, we can start bat removal. 

Bats can leave through the valve but not return. It usually takes 3-7 days to have a bat-free attic. Once all bats are gone, we remove the bat valve and seal the entire home.

Rodent Pest Control

A mouse or rat infestation can damage your home and harm your health. Rats like all rodents constantly gnaw and will gnaw on anything it can sink their teeth into. Rats can spread a variety of diseases.

To effectively get rid of rodents you need to control the population. Female rats can have six litters in one year. The wildlife technician will determine the best type of trap, placement of trap, and the best bait to use.

The standard trapping duration is normally 5-14 days. Rats leave pheromone trails that other rats can follow into your home.  It is essential to repair entry points and reinforce potential entry points to keep rats out.

Opossum Removal

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 exclude opossums.

Squirrel Removal

Five species of tree squirrels call North Carolina home. If you have squirrels in your home, it is most likely the Eastern Gray Squirrel or flying squirrel. If you hear scratching noises that start early in the morning, it is likely a squirrel.

Squirrels damage your home by constantly gnawing, building nests, and leaving their droppings.

To effectively remove squirrels, the wildlife technician will employ a variety of tactics such as cage trapping, one-way doors, deterrents, and direct capture.

Chipmunk Control

Chipmunks are most active in early mornings and late afternoons during the spring. 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 during the winter months in a “quasi-hibernation“.

Chipmunks pose no real danger to humans. 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 eas for sleeping, storing food, defecating, and giving birth.

 

Snake Control

Generally, the most harm snakes inflict is scaring someone. Out of the thirty-eight snake species in North Carolina, only six are venomous. 

Most commonly, snakes enter your home searching for food. A snake in your home is a sign you have a rodent infestation. During the inspection, we look for signs of rodents. We can solve your snake and rodent problems. 

Raccoon Removal

A raccoon can get into your house at any time of year. You are most likely to have a raccoon during the breeding season (February-June).

Raccoons can wreak havoc trying to gain entry to your home and cause significant damage creating a den in your attic. You’ll most likely hear a loud thumbing at night if you have an attic.

Live trapping is the most common raccoon removal technique.  When juveniles are present, the use of repellents can be effective. Exclusion techniques include securing food sources and closing any entry points.

Bird Control

The most common nuisance birds in North Carolina are crows, pigeons, red-winged blackbirds, starlings, and woodpeckers. Birds can be noisy, messy, and destructive. Effective bird control depends on species and legalities. Of the 475 wild bird species in North Carolina, only non-native birds to North America like pigeons, starlings, and house sparrows can legally be caught and trapped.

Effective bird control includes habitat modification, exclusions, repellents, and trapping. Trapping birds are difficult; prevention and exclusion are much more effective to get rid of nuisance birds.

Burrowing Animals

Homeowners can find  moles, voles, or groundhogs digging up their yards. Moles, voles, and groundhogs make different size holes and mounds. That is the easiest way to identify them.

Traps can effectively control these animals, but they are elusive. Fencing around landscaping and gardens is an effective exclusion tactic.

“Dear Trutech, yesterday happened just like you promised! You had told me that if I saw a snake on our property again to call you any day or any time because that’s the best time to catch them – that is, soon after they’re spotted. You sent Alfred Burns right away and Nick Yohn, D.M. arrived, shortly thereafter. Removing that 65″ snake from our yard was a great relief for my wife and me. You have kept every promise you’ve made and you have provided great customer service at every step.”
