Spartanburg Wildlife Removal

Wildlife problem? Let us take care of it

Wildlife We Remove in Spartanburg, SC

Located equidistant from Charlotte and Atlanta, Spartanburg is a popular and affordable place for people to move. Residents in Spartanburg, Union, and Gaffney have the benefits of big city living and have access to the great outdoors.

Upstate South Carolina has forty-seven state parks, and Spartanburg has green spaces and outdoor areas right outside your front door. The Cotton Wood Trail runs along Lawson’s Fork Creek which lies completely within Spartanburg County. Wildlife like white-tailed deer, raccoons, wild turkeys, pileated woodpeckers, mallard ducks, and snapping turtles live here.

Some of these animals have adapted to thrive in urban and suburban habitats. Animals like raccoons, opossums, squirrels, and skunks find resources to satisfy their needs for food, shelter, and water. If you have an animal in your attic, you probably won’t see the animals. You will notice nuisance wildlife either by hearing, smelling, or seeing physical evidence like damage to your home. 

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.

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.

Raccoon Removal

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.

Opossum Removal

Opossums are not prone to aggression; in fact, if you find an opossum in your yard the best thing to do is ignore it. Opossums tend to stay in one spot only for a few days.

They pose the greatest threat to your garden, but they will eat almost anything. Opossums do carry diseases and host parasites like mites, roundworms, flukes, and tapeworms.

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 keep opossums out. If an opossum makes its way into your attic, either a cage trap or direct capture are humane removal strategies.

Armadillo Removal

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.

Squirrel Removal

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.

Chipmunk Removal

Chipmunks are mainly found in the northwestern part of South Carolina and can adapt to a variety of habitats.

Chipmunks are most active in late spring. Chipmunks mate twice a year. The first litter of two to five kits is born in April and May; the second litter is in July and August. Chipmunks enter their burrows in late fall.

Chipmunks pose no real danger to humans. They rarely enter homes but will explore basements and crawlspaces for food. The more pressing threat is damage to lawns and gardens. Their burrows are quite extensive that can undermine structures.

There are all sorts of chipmunk repellents, deterrents, and baits on the market, but these do little to truly get rid of chipmunks.

Bat Removal

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.

Rodent Removal

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.

Beaver Removal

The lakes and rivers in Upstate South Carolina provide ideal habitats for beavers. Beaver dams create thriving ecosystems, but they can also cause flooding in residential areas and on public lands. Due to certain state and federal laws, attempting to remove beaver dams can result in costly fines or jail time. 

Beavers are extremely diligent workers and will target a specific area with plentiful resources. As a result, they will develop a “slide.” These are visible mudslides that the beavers create from repeatedly going in and out of the water.  

The process of beaver removal typically takes 10-14 days. Removing trees or wrapping trunks in hardware cloth and controlling water level deter beavers.

Snake Removal

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.

The most effective means of snake control is to remove food sources. Snakes usually enter your home in search of 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.

“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.”
