If you have a problem with wildlife in your Bedford home, your best option is to hire a company that specializes in Texas wildlife removal only. This is a specialty business, and regular pest control companies do not use the proper techniques to solve animal problems. I have spent many years reviewing Texas and Bedford, and I recommend the following:
NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Tarrant County Animal Services: 817-952-2191
TruTech Wildlife Service specializes primarily in removing animals from attics of homes and buildings - this includes squirrels in attics, raccoons, and rats or mice in homes. Texas also has a documented problem with
bats in buildings, and TruTech Wildlife Service is specially trained in bat removal. They also perform general wildlife trapping services, such as the capture and removal of skunks or opossums on the
property. Call 817-576-1645 to discuss your critter problem and schedule a same-day or next-day appointment. Click here to learn more about what prices we charge in 2023.
When hiring a company to solve your wild animal problem, you want these features:
TruTech Wildlife Service is a full-service Bedford wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Bedford pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all
similar to wildlife removal. TruTech Wildlife Service performs a full inspection of the home or property, and determines why the animal(s) are there, and if inside a building, how the animals got inside. All
animals (including rodents) are trapped and removed, or if possible, removed from the building using special exclusion devices. Once the animals are gone, preventative repairs are essential, and
cleanup is sometimes recommended.
Bedford wildlife trapping - it's not as simple as it may seem. It's illegal in Texas to trap without a license. Trap type is very important and there are many different types, bait is somewhat relevant, trap placement is vital, and there are dozens of small things that are very important to know. Safety is a concern. Then once the animal is trapped, it must be removed and dealt with in the proper manner according to Texas law. We offer Bedford raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.
Animals in attics - this is our specialty at TruTech Wildlife Service. Many types of animals like to live in attics. This includes squirrels, raccoons, rats, mice, bats, birds, and even possums. Critters like to go into attics for a safe place to live and raise their young. Removing animals from attics is very complex work, partly because of the presence of baby animals. If you need Bedford squirrel removal, we can remove all the squirrels from your attic, and seal out any future ones. Read more about how to get rid of squirrels.
Rodent control must be done in a very specific way. First off, the most important thing is that all the openings that rats and mice can use to enter a house be sealed. Then all the rodents must be physically trapped and removed. Never, ever use poison! Most Bedford exterminators will just use this lazy poison technique to kill rodents, and it causes more harm than good - dead stinky rats, and it doesn't solve the problem. Call us for correct Bedford rat removal. Read more about how to get rid of rats.
Bat removal is a highly specialized task. Texas is known to have colonizing bats who often live in buildings. Bats love attics. If not removed, the colony can grow to a very large size over the years. The bat droppings are often corrosive and cause health risks. The same goes for bird droppings on or in buildings. We perform Bedford pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Bedford bat removal. We remove 100% of the bat colony and seal the building so that it's totally bat-proof. Read more about how to get rid of bats.
If you have animals inside a house, no job is complete without proper exclusion repairs. If you simply hire a Bedford trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Bedford wildlife control company that identifies 100% of the animal entry points into your building, and seals them shut with professional repairs. In addition, in many cases animals have left waste or contamination behind, and you'll want a company that can provide professional cleaning services. TruTech Wildlife Service does both.
The above are just some of the services offered by TruTech Wildlife Service. We also trap and remove animals that destroy lawns, such as moles, or digging animals. Sometimes animals like opossums will live under buildings, steal pet food, raid garbage cans, etc. Read about how to get rid of opossums. Skunks commonly live under sheds or decks, and set up a den. We can trap and remove them without them spraying. Read about how to get rid of skunks. TruTech Wildlife Service also provides dead animal removal in Bedford. If you need help with any other wildlife conflict, from a fox, beaver, groundhog, or any other critter, we can solve it. We also do Bedford snake removal - most of the snakes in Texas are not venomous, but call us if you want safe removal, or read about how to get rid of snakes in Bedford. And remember, we are a private business, not Tarrant County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at 817-952-2191. Tarrant County animal services does not handle any wildlife issues.
Every wildlife removal situation is different, from the species of animals involved, the location of the animal inside a house or outside, the extent of repairs or cleanup, etc. It's impossible to give one-size-fits-all prices. Examples MIGHT include:
Small Job: For example, a one-stop job to remove an animal in the yard: $100 on up
Medium Job: For example, getting critters out of your house with minor repairs: $300 on up
Large Job: For example, a project involving many service trips and complex work: $500 on up
Give us a phone call now and tell us about your wildlife issue and we will be able to give you a price estimate over the phone. If you're cool with it, we can schedule a same-day or next-day appointment if you like. Our prices are fair, and a good value because we do the job right, the first time.
Bedford Wildlife Tip #1:
Venomous Snakes of Florida
You might be cleaning your yard and suddenly see a snake behind a bush. It can be very surprising but if you have knowledge on how to handle them, you might be able to get away from them safely. In the 50 species of snake that is currently recognized in Florida, only 6 are venomous. Snakes flee when they sense danger. However, some of them can be aggressive if they are disturbed or if they are basking in the sun. Snakes are actually beneficial to the environment since they kill rodents, insects, and other pests that harm crops or households. The best thing to do when you find a snake is to get away from it especially if you don't know how to handle it. You might also want to take note that even after a snake is killed, its reflexes can still function. That means that the head might slowly writhe and can still bite you.
Here are the 6 most dangerous snakes in Florida
1. Eastern Diamondback Rattlesnakes are the largest native species that can be found in Florida. They need to be treated with extreme caution since they can strike aggressively and repeatedly. They can feed on rabbits, shrews, squirrels, mice, and occasional birds because of their size. They are also known to be able to fend possible predators, because they are extremely agile. The Eastern variety is more dangerous than the Western ones. Do not approach this snake for whatever reason. The patterns are characterized by brown diamond-like shapes - hence its name- and the color come in gray, red, yellow or tan.
2. Canebrake Rattlesnake or Timber Rattlesnakes are common in the northern part of Florida. They have wide heads compared to the neck areas. They are very slender. The length is around 5 feet. They can be found usually in river bottoms, hammocks, and flat woods. This snake has excellent sensors that can detect possible dangers. They usually flee and give warning signals several times before actually striking. They will only actually bite if they sense that there is no chance of escape. They like to bask in leafy and dense areas. The timber snake had been America's symbol of revolution due to its reputation of being the most feared snake among others.
3. The Water Moccasin or Cotton mouth is very common in the US. It is part of the pit viper family, closely related to rattlesnakes. However, they don't have rattles that they can use when fending off enemies. Its name came from the white interior of its mouth that is revealed when it is striking.
4. The copperhead snake has a wider head than its neck. They can grow up to 36 inches and they have copper colored head where their name came from. They have brown banded patterns and their color can range from tan to orange.
5. Coral snake has the most potent venom among other snakes in America. It chews while injecting venom to its prey. They have elongated heads and the red color is adjacent to the yellow color. They like to make habitats in heavy brushes and deserts.
