If you have a problem with wildlife in your Haltom City 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 Haltom City, and I recommend the following:
NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Tarrant County Animal Services: 817-759-2124
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 Haltom City wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Haltom City 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.
Haltom City 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 Haltom City 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 Haltom City 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 Haltom City 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 Haltom City 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 Haltom City pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Haltom City 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 Haltom City trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Haltom City 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 Haltom City. 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 Haltom City 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 Haltom City. 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 817-759-2124. 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.
Haltom City Wildlife Tip #1:
Can rats swim?
Certain studies suggest, rats are able to live in a vast number of places. Whether it is underground, inside houses, on the streets, they just learn to adapt. At times it may seem difficult, but they get the job done when needed to. This is why rats may know a lot of tactics than other types of animals, even animals in the rodent family may not know.
Rats can actually swim as if they are in the Olympics. They can swim like their lives are at stake, as well as staying under water for a good amount of time. They usually are not born with this type of swimming skill, but they mostly learn it through their days in the sewer. A majority of rats do live in sewers and this absolutely helps those master many skills they need to survive and pray. The reason for their expertise in swimming comes from their lives in the sewer. Since the structure of the rat's body is absolutely small, the bones may seem put together, but this is actually a major advantage for them especially when in water. They are able to move slowly and wriggle in any small or underground places. Hence, there houses in the wall are usually smaller than the human hand; this is why our hands would never fit into them.
Another reason that makes their swimming expertise an advantage is helping them enter homes. They tend to swim their way through towns until they can find a home they want to live their life in. This is a good thing for them but a horrible thing for the house owner. Rats can sneak up anywhere, whether it is a small hole or if you live near a sewer on the street. It is always best to take precautions when it comes to these animals.
Do rats drown?
As rats are expert in swimming, the possibility for them to drown is incredibly low. They know what they are doing and when they are doing it, therefore they are not worried during anytime of the processing. However, this may increase the chance of actually having them get swiped up in your toilet water.
When this occurs, rats have a get away to your bathroom, thus allowing them a suitable entrance to your home. This is a major outbreak since none of this is expected. But it is always best to keep the bathroom as clean and sealed as possible. When rats reach the bathroom it is usually during the time where house owners have those squat toilets that do not include the English toilets. Thus, making it incredibly easy for the rat to have access from the sewer itself. Overall , it is best to stay clear of any sewer water since rats can stay in it for a long period of time.
