Wildlife We Remove in Greenville, SC
Tucked in the foothills, Greenville provides the residents of its city with lush riverside gardens and an extensive series of trails to explore. The hilly region also offers plentiful habitat to wildlife in the form of old fields, streams, and densely wooded areas. The beautiful flowing waterfalls in Oconee and Pickens County translate into ample water supplies for the area’s wildlife. The Reedy River flows through the middle of downtown Greenville!
As the city grows, habitat loss and fragmentation pose a big threat to the local wildlife. But animals are resourceful. And many are adapting to the changing urban and suburban landscape.
Wild animals require the same basic things as humans, including food, shelter, and water. Even with a changing landscape, their basic needs remain the same. As the Upstate grows, more animals will be looking for comfort in homes around the county.
It’s nice to know that animals can adapt to a changing world. But adapting to live inside your home is not a viable option. Unfortunately, wild animals bring the threat of property damage and a suite of potential health hazards when they move in. A few signs that you have an infestation on your hands include strange sounds, tracks, paw prints, and droppings.
Trutech’s Wildlife Technicians are trained to identify the animal, find all entry points, and implement a custom strategy to get rid of the animal in your home safely.
Common Nuisance Wildlife
Greenville 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 to 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 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 Greenville
You are most likely to experience a raccoon problem in your house from March until August. Female raccoons are looking for safe places to have their young. The peak breeding season is January and February. After a 63 gestation period, the young stay in their den for up to three months, and the family stays together until fall.
Raccoons are nocturnal. One of the most common signs of a raccoon infestation is loud, strange noises at night.
Raccoons only need a gap the size of a grapefruit to squeeze into your home, but they are capable of creating much larger holes. They can tear shingles off roofs and tear apart soffits. They also cause significant damage inside your home.
Cage traps are the most effective raccoon removal technique. Long-term solutions include exclusion techniques by sealing any entry points.
Armadillos present little danger to people. The greatest danger they pose is to your landscaping. Controlling the animal can protect your lawn and garden and the integrity of structures like decks and driveways on your property.
Capturing an armadillo with a live trap can be difficult. Habitat modification and exclusions are extremely effective in removing armadillos from your lawn. Water your garden beds in the morning because armadillos prefer loose soil. Armadillos are nocturnal, and the soil will have dried out by the mid-afternoon.
Squirrels can cause considerable damage to your home. Both gray squirrels and fox squirrels can be found in South Carolina, but Greenville/Spartanburg residents are more likely to have gray squirrels in their attic.
Squirrels are active during the day so you might hear squealing, running, or gnawing early in the morning. Squirrels constantly gnaw which damages attic insulation, frays electrical wire, and destroys 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 get rid of squirrels, the wildlife technician will employ a variety of tactics such as live trapping, one-way doors, deterrents, and direct capture.
South Carolina is home to 14 species of bats. In Upstate South Carolina, property owners may discover bats roosting in attics, using these shelters to give birth. Bats have pups between mid-May to mid-August, but June is the most likely time.
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.
If you hear scraping sounds in the walls or you see droppings, it’s a good idea to call Trutech.
Rodents damage your home and spread diseases. Setting a few traps is not an effective rodent pest control method. A litter is usually between five to twelve, and one rat can have up to seven litters in a year!
Our rodent pest control specialists in Jacksonville will work with you to get rid of mice and rat problems and help advise you on proper rodent control so that you no longer need to worry about these destructive pests.
The standard trapping duration is normally 5-14 days. An integrated trapping and exclusion strategy is essential to solve the rodent infestation. Rodents can gnaw through virtually any house material, and mice only need a hole the size of a dime. Trutech offers recurring rodent services to maintain a rodent-free home.
Finding a snake in your home can be a jarring experience. There are 38 snake species in South Carolina, only six of which are venomous. If you leave the snake alone, it will leave you alone.
Snakes usually enter your home in search for food like rodents. During our inspection, we will also look for signs of a rodent infestation. The wildlife technician will help remove the snake safely and help uncover any other wildlife pest infestations.

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.
