Armadillos In Your Yard? Call Animal Removal Fast

If you find large holes in your yard and don't know why, you could have armadillos on the premises. Although armadillos are generally shy and nonthreatening to humans, the pests can create large holes throughout your yard. If you allow the armadillos to take over your property, you could have a big problem on your hands. You can get rid of the armadillos on your property with the information and animal removal services below. 

What Are Armadillos?

Many species of armadillos live in the world today, including the nine-banded armadillo. The nine-banded armadillo is relatively shy but will make strange noises to scare away predators and threats.

Armadillos generally sleep during the day and forage for insects, plants, and small animals in the evening and early morning. Most homeowners don't know they have armadillos on their property until they encounter holes in the ground. Armadillos create holes in the ground when they forage for food or when they create burrows beneath the ground. The holes can cause significant damage to landscapes, pipes, and other structures above and below the ground.

Although armadillos don't bite humans, the pests can use their long claws to defend themselves against threats. In this case, you want to call pest control and request animal removal services fast.

How Can Animal Removal Services Help You?

Animal removal service providers will assess your yard to see if you have an armadillo problem or something else. Gophers and moles can also dig holes in your yard. If you have gophers and moles in your yard, pest control will follow the right steps to remove them. If pest control discovers the presence of armadillos on your property, they'll remove the mammals for you.

Because some states protect armadillos from harm, an animal removal company will most likely use traps to catch the armadillos on your property. Pest control may place the traps near the animals' burrows, or they may place the traps in places armadillos like to forage for food and water. Armadillos generally possess poor eyesight. The mammals may not notice the traps until they become trapped inside them.

A pest company may come out at different times of the day to remove the trapped armadillos from your property. If you have multiple armadillos in your yard, pest control may need sufficient time to trap and remove all of the pests.
