PAY SERVICE: Trutech Wildlife Services: 480-696-1498

Trutech Wildlife Services is a private wildlife control business that charges for critter removal in Phoenix. Trutech Wildlife Services is available 24-7-365 and provides same-day wildlife removal services, including the removal of animals inside attics, rodent removal, and more.



If you have an animal problem and need assistance, there are several free animal control resources in Phoenix, Arizona. The first thing you can try is your local Maricopa County animal services, or the free Phoenix animal control services by calling 602-506-7387. They may be able to help you with your critter problem, and possibly offer free raccoon removal or free snake removal. But they primarily deal with dogs and cats, and might not help with wildlife. For wildlife-specifice issues, try the Arizona Wildlife Commission at 602-942-300. They do free wildlife control in Phoenix and all of Arizona. But they often deal with special cases like bears, or illegal hunting. They might not help you with specific cases in your house, like free rodent control or free squirrel removal. At a more local level, you can call Phoenix Wildlife Rehabilitation at 480-998-5550 for local free animal removal and trapping, and they may help with providing free critter removal in Phoenix. But this organization, like all wildlife rehab, mostly focuses on healing and caring for sick or injured wildlife. There's no business that provides free pest control in Phoenix that will remove wild animals that I know of, like free bat control or free rat removal. Sometimes, for a case of animals in an attic, or wildlife problems on private property, you need to hire and pay for wildlife removal, and if so, I recommend Trutech Wildlife Services at 480-696-1498. Some people wonder if animal control costs money, or how much does animal removal cost. For that, call 480-696-1498 and ask. Of course, you can be sure to get free pest wildlife removal if you solve the problem yourself, so read my Do-It-Yourself page for more hints. Finally, you can call the local Phoenix police department. Click here for Phoenix police department animal removal and for a short explanation.

Phoenix wildlife issues:

Many years of persecution have resulted in the development of the pest critter's senses to a high degree, and to approach one close enough for a clean effort to remove a pest animal without detection is an achievement. Let me point out that one type of motion might be alarming, and another might not. I have seen this demonstrated many times, especially when traveling through the pest critter suburban neighborhood in a car. One instance is typical. One summer day I saw several nuisance Phoenix wildlife just a short distance in the thicket. Stopping the car with the motor idling, I reached for my camera in the back seat, got out of the car on the side away from the pest critter, and then walked to the edge of the suburban neighborhood. No hasty approach. After the pest critter trotted away a bit, they stopped again. I moved in closer for more pictures before they retreated.

In contrast, I remember another occasion vividly, during time of year, when my partner and I sighted four nuisance wildlife alongside the road - a pest animal and three does. Excited at the prospect of an effort to remove a pest animal, my friend opened the car door on his side and that was the last we saw of those four urban wild Phoenix animals; even the does disappeared. No discreet withdrawal; they all turned tail. Several times I have animal tracked nuisance wildlife in a canoe successfully and easily by keeping sound and motion to a minimum. For instance, there was the time on the Big Presque Isle River in northern Michigan when we saw a conflict animal feeding on underwater plants.

With three men in the canoe, I navigated the craft from the stern! Sculling it very quietly. We slotted the large nuisance wildlife some distance downstream. Moving slowly and quietly when the urban wild animal had its head down, we managed to create an illusion of stability and approached to within 50 feet of the unsuspecting animal before it raised its toothed head and took flight. It made a water-splashing rush for shore. Along with its sharp senses, the urban wild animal also excels in keeping alive and healthy by its ability to hide out and camouflages itself in most any part of its habitat. It is distinctly a "suburban neighborhood" animal. Always the urban wild animal will try to find range that is protective, never venturing far from cover during the daylight hours. The urban wild animal has an uncanny ability to spend its time where the forest growth shields it; sometimes it is so thoroughly shielded that the nuisance Phoenix wildlife control professional is unable to make a direct hit even when the pest critter is a short distance away. As an illustration, one noon my partner and I returned to pest control headquarters and were entirely unprepared for what we saw. A young pest animal was sauntering into the nearby second growth quite unconcernedly until we showed up.
