Pro

Trutech’s services cover the full range of standard wildlife pests, including bats, raccoons, squirrels, birds, skunks, and opossums.

Q

Con

Despite its reputation for effective wildlife removal, Trutech’s portfolio does not include insect pests.

Here are some highlights of Trutech’s offerings:

  • Specialized training. Trutech trains its experts in all aspects of its wildlife control/removal business. Many removal technicians have degrees in wildlife biology, entomology, ornithology or herpetology, some holding master’s degrees in their specialty fields.
  • Fast response. Trutech’s technicians are available for immediate response in the event a homeowner encounters a living or dead animal in the house.
  • Information-packed website. Trutech’s website allows customers to look up their state and learn information on their area’s top nuisance wildlife by season. Before contacting a representative, a photo gallery and audio files allow anyone to identify a problem animal by sight or sound. The site also advises customers on what they can do in specific animal removal situations (animals in a backyard, the attic, the trash, in trees, in walls, or scratching in walls or attic) while the technician is in transit.
  • A wide range of wildlife services. Trutech offers bat control and bat removal, raccoon removal, squirrel removal, bird control, and control for rats, skunks, opossums, and many more. The company also assists with indoor nuisance animals such as mice and rats.
  • Humane wildlife removal. Trutech’s services comply with ethical codes of behavior for wildlife management. Animals are only in traps for a limited amount of time, and are relocated to a suitable habitat if appropriate. If relocation isn’t an option, or is prohibited by county animal pest control standards, the company provides humane euthanasia.

Pro

Many reviewers describe Trutech reps as professional, knowledgeable, and friendly.

Q

Con

While most reviewers praised TruTech’s technicians for being knowledgeable about wildlife issues, a few felt that their technicians’ estimates for the cost of work came in on the high side.

Cost

It’s hard in general to compare costs across pest control companies, due to regional variations in pricing and the wide range of potential pest problems. For that reason, it’s essential for a pest control company to offer a free estimate for their services, which TruTech will provide. It should be noted, however, that TruTech offers free estimates based on an assessment of the problem, but it does not offer free initial inspections. In part this is due to the nature of wildlife problems, which tend to be more easily assessed on first blush than problems with smaller pests. But cost-free inspections are important in controlling the final cost and avoiding surprise expenses that a representative on the phone may not anticipate.
