If you have a problem with wildlife in your Richardson 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 Richardson, and I recommend the following:
NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Dallas County Animal Services: (972) 744-4480
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 972-379-7826 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 Richardson wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Richardson 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.
Richardson 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 Richardson 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 Richardson 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 Richardson 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 Richardson 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 Richardson pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Richardson 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 Richardson trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Richardson 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 Richardson. 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 Richardson 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 Richardson. And remember, we are a private business, not Dallas County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at (972) 744-4480. Dallas 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.
Richardson Wildlife Tip #1:
Do Catch, Neuter, Release Programs Work
When you have decided to get with the new family member of your home as your pet, it would be better for you to go through the animal shelters which would probably provide you with the pets according to your wish. Today most of these animal shelters have offered new life to stray dogs, fetal dogs and even for the cats too. These animal shelters would expect to have donations from outside and from any social organizations in order to take care of pets.
If you want to look for an animal shelter to work with, before getting with the one it would be better for you to consider about following things:
Because of these reasons you should be very careful about the animal shelters from where you are going to get your pets and also about the nature of pets too.
Catch, Neuter, Release Programs:
When you have considered about the organizations and animal shelters that have done with the neuter release programs, the main reason for these services would be reducing the number of stray dogs and cats that are roaming around in the city. These organizations would probably catch the dogs and cats with the help of tricks and then they will make them under their control.
After getting these animals under your control, it would be better for you to provide them with healthy food to reduce their hunger. It is also necessary to clean the animals and make them live healthy life for some days. In these days they would have prepared for the neuter operations. Since neuter operations have been done in order to remove the reproductive organ of the particular animal, it would be better to go through the specialist to handle all the animals.
After the removal of reproductive organs from animals, these animal shelters would probably take care of the animals for further procedures. They would make these animals as healthy one and after that they would release them from their shelters.
Probably in most of the cities these neuter release programs have been worked in a great way with the help of organizations and animal service providers. Even though they have done their work in a reliable way, it is not possible to eliminate the stray dogs and cats production since they are not able to get with all the animals.
