Wildlife We Remove in Akron, OH

Ohio defines nuisance wildlife as an animal that prevents you and your family from enjoying your property. They may also be causing a threat and making the public feel unsafe or damaging your home, structures on your property, or your person. 

The Nuisance Compliance Division of the City of Akron reports problem wildlife includes raccoons, squirrels, opossums, groundhogs (woodchucks), muskrats, foxes, bats, rats, mice, weasels, mink, and rabbits.

Your home is an excellent source of food, water, and shelter for wildlife. Wild animals tend to avoid people, but you’ll notice the evidence left behind by an animal in your house. You will likely notice strange sounds and odors, but you might see animal droppings and physical damage to your home. Safe, humane removal helps keep people, animals, and property safe.

Akron Wildlife Removal Services

Our comprehensive wildlife removal plan guarantees your satisfaction. From inspection to removal and finally exclusions, our wildlife technicians have the expertise to get rid of raccoons, rodents, squirrels, and other nuisances effectively and efficiently. 

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 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 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 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 Exclusion

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.

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 Akron

Raccoon Removal

Raccoons in Ohio prefer wooded habitats near water. The upper Cuyahoga River Watershed and the parks and forests provide ideal habitats for raccoons in Akron. 

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 thumping at night if you have an attic.

During the inspection, we identify raccoon entry points and any damage caused by a raccoon.

Live trapping is the most common raccoon removal technique.  When juveniles are present, the use of repellents can be effective.

Several things must happen in the repair process: disinfecting the area, installing parts that were removed by the raccoon, and securing entry points.

Beaver Control

Beaver dams create thriving ecosystems along the Cuyahoga River, but those beaver dams become a nuisance by flooding in residential areas and on public lands. Beavers are extremely diligent workers and will work in a targeting area until they need more resources. The problem will continue until it is solved.

Due to certain state laws, ignoring a beaver dam can be costly. But there are state and federal regulations on how to solve nuisance beaver problems on your land.

Trutech will undertake an intense trapping session and trap for a specific number of days or until activity stops, whichever comes first. The process of beaver removal typically takes 10-14 days. Removing trees or wrapping trunks in hardware cloth and controlling water level deter beavers.

Skunk Control

The striped skunk prefers the more rural areas surrounding Akron. However, encounters with skunks in urban environments are on the rise. They are searching for food, water, and shelter. They prefer insects, fish, small mammals, fruits, grains, nuts, leaves, and grass.

Skunks often find shelter under porches, decks, crawlspaces, or basements. They will hide in piles of debris in your yard also. The problems arise when they feel threatened and release a foul-smelling chemical that can linger for weeks.

Squirrel Removal

Squirrels are delightful little creatures… until they wind up inside of your house. Squirrels impact your quality of life because they are active from dawn to dusk.

We inspect for signs of squirrel damage throughout your yard, and we inspect your entire home, top to bottom. We know how to spot squirrel nests, debris piles, waste, and damage.

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

Repairs may include fixing damaged areas on your roof, deck, porch, or outdoor buildings. We fill in holes and also help you implement methods to deter squirrels from your property.

Groundhog Control

Lawns appeal to groundhogs in Northeast Ohio because they flock to open areas with loose soil and good drainage. Garden plots, especially those with tender young sprouts, also attract plant-eating pests. Groundhogs hibernate in their burrows during the winter so you won’t notice them until late February in Cleveland.

Groundhogs leave behind deep holes in yards that extend into intricate tunnel systems. Burrows can cause falls, mower damage, and soil collapses. These tunnels may even lead to foundation problems if they are too close to the home.

Scarecrows provide only temporary relief. Fencing can effectively keep groundhogs away from landscaping and gardens. Groundhog traps are the most effective control method.

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.

Rodent Removal

The most common rodents are the Norway rat, the roof rat, and the house mouse. Effective rat or mouse removal takes more than a few traps behind the cabinets. Because rats and mice can breed at a tremendous pace, effective rodent control requires proper rodent population control and prevention.

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

Rats and mice can chew through electrical wiring, wooden beams, and insulation, and they leave feces and urine throughout your home. We make it a priority first to clean all rodent areas. Then, we fix the damage and make it impossible for rodents to enter your home in the future.

Bat Removal

In Northeast Ohio, the little and big brown bats are the ones you may find roosting in your chimney or attic. Bats are relatively harmless, but the piles of guano in your attic is a problem.

Property owners may discover bats roosting in attics, using these shelters to give birth. Bats have pups between late May to late-July, but June is the most likely time. It is unlawful in Ohio to kill bats, and a bat inspection must be done before installing exclusion devices. 

Once the young can survive on their own, the wildlife technician seals the entry points and installs a bat valve. Once the valve is installed, your house will be bat free in 3-7 days.

Mole Control

You probably won’t see a mole or encounter one in your home. Moles spend almost all of their time underground.  You will notice a mole problem in your yard through their tunnels and the molehills. The pests tunnel just below the surface of the ground, overturning dirt with their powerful front feet.

Time, energy, and resources can be wasted by trying to control moles in an unoccupied burrow. Baiting and trapping are the two most practical and efficient mole control methods.  Baiting and trapping are the two most practical and efficient methods.

“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.”
