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.

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
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.
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.
