Orlando Armadillo Removal

Armadillos can be very destructive to your lawn. They are notorious for burrowing holes and destroying landscapes. It is important to act at the first signs of armadillo damage, because their digging can be extremely destructive.

Identifying an armadillo is an important part of treating them. There is one species of armadillo found in the US and it is the Nine-Banded Armadillo. These grey and brown mammals range between 25 to 48 inches in diameter. Even though their legs are short, their claws are long and sharp, which is what makes them good at digging holes. Armadillos aren’t territorial creatures, which is what makes getting rid of them so difficult. The one that’s in your yard today may not be the one that did all that damage last week.

Friendly Service

An armadillo’s digging habits can be extremely destructive, which is why it’s important to take control at the first signs of damage. Armadillos will dig holes in your yard, and uproot and damage plants and underground wires and pipes. They like to burrow near and underneath sidewalks, driveways, and even building foundations. Since they are nocturnal, most of their activity takes place at night, as they forage for food and insects to eat.

Using our live traps, we can easily relocate these harmful creatures away from your home. If you’ve encountered an armadillo or signs of one around your home, please contact us for wildlife removal services.
