Wildlife We Remove in Johns Island, SC

Johns Island is the largest barrier island in Charleston County. The scenic properties, proximity to downtown Charleston, and more laid-back style have made the island an active area for development.

The island is home to hundreds of birds and scores of wildlife like alligators, deer, coyotes, otters, and more. The rivers and marshes are full of fish, shellfish, oysters, and dolphins. 

The subtropical climate means animals can stay active year-round. This can be especially trying for animals that enter your home.

Your home is a great source of food, water, and shelter for wildlife. As Johns Island continues to develop, wildlife adapted to urban living will continue to be a nuisance.

Wild animals tend to avoid people, but you’ll notice the evidence left behind from an animal in your house. You will likely notice strange sounds and unusual odors but you might see animal droppings and physical damage to your home.

Common  Nuisance Wildlife

Johns Island Wildlife Removal Services

Our 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.

To prepare for the inspection consider these questions:

  • Have you seen an animal around your home or property?
  • Why do you suspect you have an animal?
  • When are you hearing noises and what do they sound like?
  • Are there any odors in your house and if so, where?
  • How long have you been experiencing the problem?

 

Step 1: Inspection

We inspect the entire house both inside and out. We check the attic and crawlspace. We look for entry points along the exterior and on the roof. Each house is different. Each species is different. An inspection could take as little as 30 minutes or as long as 3 hours. 

Step 2: The Plan

After the inspection, we share what we found with you and explain how we solve the problem. Each plan is unique to the homeowner. Removal strategies include but are not limited to trapping, live trapping, direct capture, deterrents, or one-way doors.

Step 3: Exclusion

A full home exclusion creates a barrier that prevents animals from entering or re-entering your home. Exclusions provide long-term and safe solutions to keep an animal out. We seal all types of entry points like plumbing stacks, gable vents, ridge vents, crawlspace vents, and roof returns. In addition, Trutech offers a one-year warranty on full home exclusions.

We are not satisfied until you are and that’s 100% guaranteed.

Wildlife Control in Johns Island

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. 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.

Raccoon Removal

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.

Rodent Pest Control

Not only is it startling to see rats or mice, but they can damage your home and carry diseases. All rodents constantly gnaw and will gnaw on anything they can sink their teeth into. Rats and mice can spread a variety of diseases.

The standard rodent trapping duration is normally 5-14 days. It is essential to repair entry points and reinforce potential entry points to keep rodents out. We offer continuous rodent control to keep your house rodent-free.

“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.”

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 techiques 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.
