Armadillos are non-aggressive animals who love digging and burrowing throughout yards, and while it may be a favorite pastime of theirs, it makes for a major nuisance to Florida homeowners and businesses causing serious property damage. Professionally trapping and removing armadillos is the best way to handle the issue. In fact, the state of Florida requires that armadillos be trapped and removed by a professional, licensed animal control agency.
Best known for their unique appearance and ability to roll up into an armored ball, armadillos are easily identified. There really isn’t another animal out there that looks like an armadillo. They have thick armored plates along their back shielding them from just about anything and everything nature will throw at them, a matching tail, tufts of hair poking out from under their shell, and a long pointed snout with small pointed ears.
Armadillos are stubborn animals that don’t typically respond well to any consumer repellent often sold on the market and in many cases, they just push right past these detractors. Some people have even resorted to pouring animal urine and bleach to repel armadillos, however, this rarely works and bleach is extremely harmful to the environment.
Common armadillo issues facing Florida homeowners & business owners:
- Larger than average tunnels around your property
- Torn apart & uprooted landscaping
- Concrete cracking over burrow trails
- Damaged pipes within burrow trails
- Smaller, dug-outs throughout your lawn/yard
- Upset family pets or alert behavior (pest can often detect the presence of other animals well before humans can)
Although they’re fascinating and interesting animals, your property is no place for armadillos. They dig and tunnel around looking for bugs and vegetation to eat, causing damage to the surrounding landscape, and even worse, possible damaging water or power line in the process. Armadillos are also nocturnal animals, so they’re sneaking around all hours of the night wreaking havoc while you’re fast asleep dreaming of an armadillo free property.
