Armadillo removal

Polk County is home to many different species of natural wildlife that can often wander into residential neighborhoods and commercial businesses looking for food and shelter. One such animal that regularly requires removal is the armadillo. While armadillos may seem harmless, an armadillo infestation is no small problem. Not only can armadillos destroy your Bartow lawn and garden, but they also are known carriers of infectious diseases.

Here are some reasons why you should contact the Bartow armadillo removal specialists at Critter Control® of Polk County if you spot an armadillo on your property.

Diseases Armadillos Carry

Many common pests carry diseases, and armadillos are no exception. Therefore, it is important to know the safety and health risks associated with the animal if one should ever cross your path. In fact, armadillos are notorious for carrying leprosy and rabies, among other harmful diseases. If provoked, they can spread such illnesses to you, your family, or your pets through bites and scratches.

While threatened armadillos are known to roll into a ball instead of attack, they can bear their teeth and claws if they feel cornered or in immediate danger. While you may not be the one facing off with the animal, curious household pets like cats and dogs may have a dangerous encounter with an armadillo and contract a disease in the process.

Armadillo-Caused Property Damage

The damages that armadillos can bring to your property should not be underestimated. These creatures love to dig and are excellent foragers. They can build dens under your property up to eight inches wide and 15 feet deep. If an armadillo has chosen your property as its residency, it has the ability to make multiple dens which could potentially compromise the foundational integrity of your property.

Therefore, it is incredibly vital to not disregard the presence of armadillos on your Bartow property. If you see one roaming around, you should immediately call the armadillo removal specialists at Critter Control® of Polk County in order to avoid spending unnecessary money paying for medical bills or repairing armadillo-caused property damages.
