If you are having a problem with wildlife in your Morehead City 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 Morehead City, and I recommend the following:
Trutech Wildlife Services
Cell Phone: 910-915-8185
NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Cateret County Animal Services: (252) 247-7744
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 Cateret 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 Morehead City wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Morehead City 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.
Morehead City 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 Morehead City 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 Morehead 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 Morehead 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 Morehead City 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 Morehead City pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Morehead 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 Morehead City trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Morehead 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 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.

. 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 Morehead 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 Morehead City 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 Morehead City. And remember, we are a private business, not Cateret County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at (252) 247-7744.
Cateret County animal services does not handle any wildlife issues.

Morehead City Wildlife Tip #1:
What attracts unwanted wild animals to your neighborhood or houses? - Learning what attracts unwanted wild animals is perhaps one of the greatest tools at your disposal in order to prevent them from coming back in the future. It is also a good idea if you have heard stories of local homes in your neighborhood being invaded by the strange looking creatures. Of course, there are a few obvious points that you will need to look out for, such as a food source, and also some that may not be quite so obvious to you, such as a wood pile. However, once you have learned about what attracts the unwanted wild animal to your property, you can then take active steps to avoid it coming back in the future. The food source is the main one, as it is with most wild animals. The bird feeder that drops bird feed on the floor - that is a prime target for a wandering unwanted wild animal, as is the garbage can that contains all of your leftovers which will end up being a tasty delight for the scavenging marsupial. Once you eliminate these food sources out of the equation, your unwanted wild animal will have nothing to eat and will therefore decide to look elsewhere. The same applies to a warm and cozy home, which a mother unwanted wild animal will definitely be looking for. This could be something like your attic, a wood pile in the yard, the space underneath the stairs leading to your house, under your porch, or even in a wood stump. Once you have closed off all entrance and exit points to your home, such as the gap under the porch, your unwanted wild animal will have to look elsewhere for a place to stay warm and dry, and the same applies when you remove the wood pile or stump from your yard. One thing that a lot of people do not realize, especially if they have once fallen prey to an unwanted wild animal invasion in their home, is that the urine of the unwanted wild animal will often attract other unwanted wild animals. This means that once you have safely removed a squatting unwanted wild animal from your home, you must get rid of all traces left behind by it; that means urine, feces, etc. this helps to prevent the threat of disease as well as the threat of another unwanted wild animal making your home its own.
Morehead City Wildlife Tip #2:
Skunk house damage photo - There are many different websites on the Internet that provide pictures of all things skunk. When doing your research, especially when it comes to looking up house damage photos from a skunk, make sure you are on a credible website. Anyone can post whatever they want on the Internet, and personal websites or blogs will often have what people assume is skunk damage. In reality, the things you see on websites might not be accurate at all. People can easily misconstrue what is really storm damage or age deterioration for animal damage. For the best, most accurate information, look for a professional website. Government agencies, colleges, and wildlife companies usually all have reliable pictures for the public to view. When in doubt, you can usually tell a skunk by the smell that accompanies it. If the animal isn't hanging around the home, but seems to be at the edges of your yard, a wildlife camera may also provide you with the proof you need.

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.
