Ohio Wildlife and Habitats
Ohioans experience all four seasons from cold winters to warm, humid summers. The continental climate has a relatively large range of seasonal variability. This seasonal variability will also affect nuisance wildlife activity.
The state also has four distinct types of habitats– forest, prairies, wetlands, and the Great Lakes. These habitats are home to about 56 mammal species, 200 species of breeding birds, and 84 species of amphibians and reptiles. Some of these animals have adapted extremely well to urban and suburban environments.
Nuisance Wildlife in Ohio
Ohio defines nuisance wildlife as a wild animal that interferes with the use or enjoyment of property, is causing a threat to public safety, or may cause damage or harm to structure, property, or person.
Not all encounters with wildlife on your property is a nuisance. Often you can resolve a potential issue by removing or limiting resources on your property. Often simple habitat modifications on your property can reduce human-wildlife conflicts such as: securing trash, removing brush piles, bringing pet food inside, and sealing potential entry points.
If you have a nuisance wildlife problem, call the professionals.
Wildlife We Remove
The seasons affect wildlife activity. Different species are more likely to take up residence on your property at different times of the year.
During the cold winter months, animals seek shelter. Some animals either hibernate or enter a state of torpor. During the warmer periods of the year, animal activity increases especially around specific mating seasons.

Frequently Asked Questions
There is no one-size-fits-all solution; each job requires a custom approach. We inspect every home and build a custom plan to resolve any wildlife problems. We use a variety of techniques including cage traps, direct capture, one-way valves, and deterrents. Exclusion techniques are the most effective way to get rid of animals.
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. Many of our technicians hold degrees in Wildlife Biology, Entomology (insects), Ornithology (birds) or Herpetology (reptiles), some with Masters degrees in their specialty field.
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.
