If you are having a problem with wildlife in your Lumberton home, your best option is to hire a company that specializes in North Carolina 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 Lumberton, and I recommend the following:
Trutech Wildlife Services
Cell Phone: 910-915-8185
NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Robeson County Animal Services: (910) 865-2200
Trutech Wildlife Services specializes primarily in removing animals from attics of homes and buildings - this includes squirrels in attics, raccoons, and rats
or mice in homes. North Carolina also has a documented problem with
bats in buildings, and Trutech Wildlife Services 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 910-915-8185
to discuss your critter problem and schedule a same-day or next-day appointment.
When hiring a company to solve your wild animal problem, you want these features:
- Specializes in wildlife removal, not pest control
- Fully North Carolina and Robeson County licensed and insured
- Works 7 days per week (critters don't take weekends off)
- Performs full building inspections: enters and inspects attic
- Performs exclusion repairs, with guarantee against animal re-entry
- Offers cleanup of biohazardous wildlife waste
Trutech Wildlife Services is a full-service Lumberton wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Lumberton pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all
similar to wildlife removal. Trutech Wildlife Services 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.
Lumberton wildlife trapping - it's not as simple as it may seem. It's illegal in North Carolina 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 North Carolina law. We offer Lumberton raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.
Animals in attics - this is our specialty at Trutech Wildlife Services. 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 Lumberton 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 Lumberton 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 Lumberton rat removal. Read more about how to get rid of rats.
Bat removal is a highly specialized task. North Carolina 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 Lumberton pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Lumberton 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 Lumberton trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Lumberton 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 Services does both.
The above are just some of the services offered by Trutech Wildlife Services. 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 Services
also provides dead animal removal in Lumberton. 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 Lumberton snake removal - most of the snakes in North Carolina are not venomous, but
call us if you want safe removal, or read about how to get rid of snakes
in Lumberton. And remember, we are a private business, not Robeson County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at (910) 865-2200.
Robeson County animal services does not handle any wildlife issues.

Lumberton Wildlife Tip #1:What Do Wildlife Rehabilitators Do With Bats?
A rehabilitator is a person who is certified and trained to take care of abandoned or injured or orphaned animals and after their recovery leave them in their natural habitats. They also have to be sure that the released animals will be able to take care of themselves in their natural habitats just like other animals of their kind.
You could have many bats in your surroundings or garden. There might be times when you could come across an injured or orphaned bat. Make sure that before you touch or pick the bat you wear gloves. Once done you should get in touch with your local wildlife rehabilitator.
Once the bat is in the safe hands of a rehabilitator be assured that it will be looked after and taken good care of. At wildlife rehabilitation the bats are kept in captivity only till they are capable of surviving in their natural habitat. They do not intend on taming them.
Rescued bats might be under stress and at the rehabilitation centres they make sure that their rooms are warm with dim lights and voices are kept low. The rehabilitators first identify the species of the bat that they have rescued and start their treatment according to the species. There are many species of them like flying bats, fruit bats, white bats, brown bats etc., all have different eating habits and characteristics. A baby bat will be cared for differently while an adult bat will get a different treatment. All the bats are initially quarantined for at least 30 days before they can be transferred to a cage.
The bats are cared for daily by them, they are fed and cleaned. They are given exactly what they require to be healthy and get back to their natural habitats. The rehabilitators give them specific diet and formulas and keep the bats warm and dry. They minimize contact with them so that they do not get the habit of getting tamed.
Once they are healthy and ready to be independent they are prepared for release, species-specific areas are chosen for the bats where they can survive and one where they can easily find food. The bats are normally released within 2 miles from the place where they were rescued from.
Mostly every state or country has wildlife rehabilitators and their numbers are available on the internet. You can easily get in touch with them. So if you find a bat that is sick, orphaned, injured or abandoned you can call a rehabilitator. Be sure the bat is in good hands and will be flying free soon.
Lumberton Wildlife Tip #2:
North Carolina Wildlife Information:
North Carolina State bird: Northern cardinal
State mammal: Gray squirrel
State reptile: Eastern box turtle
State fish: Channel bass
State insect: European honeybee
Few states have as nice of a geological flow as North Carolina. This state is divided almost into equal sections, making up three distinct habitat zones. The first zone, known as the coastal plain, starts with the sandy beaches by the Atlantic Ocean and heads inland through flat fields of tall grass. Eventually the land begins to rise upward, giving way to the central section of gentle foothills and thicker forests. The Appalachian Mountains make up the final, most inland section of the state. Here, the weather can be slightly cooler, though North Carolina is considered to have a consistently warm climate.
At the coast, beach-goers and business owners have to do daily battle with the scores of bold seagulls. These birds are fearless when it comes to people and pets, and they are so brazen they will often take food right away from people on the sand. Not only are the seagulls thieves, they eventually expel their waste all over the beach, sidewalks, and sea-side businesses. Other creature issues in the sand are related to jellyfish, which wash up on shore daily. These aquatic animals can sting even in death, and many an unwary, barefoot soul has stepped on the gelatinous pile and gotten stung.
North Carolina has a range of coastal islands called the Outer Banks. These islands are home to the Banker horse, a small, stocky animal with bloodlines originating form Spanish horses brought over with the explorers. These horses are protected because of their historical import, and they are allowed to roam free on the islands, walking across roadways and grazing in people's front yards. The wildlife agencies that oversee the horse population make sure they are free of infectious disease.
Large predators in the state stay mainly in the foothills and the mountains. These include coyotes and black bear. While shy, black bear have been known to destroy birdfeeders due to their love of birdseed. They will also take advantage of an unprotected garbage bin. Unlike coyotes, black bear will move on once the food supply has vanished. Coyotes, if in an urban setting, can be a threat to children and pets.
North Carolina also has a familiar list of nuisance animals such as the raccoon, opossum, skunk, woodchuck, porcupine, beaver, squirrel, rat, bat, and snake.
