Armadillo Removal

For many Floridians, spotting an armadillo on the side of the road is pretty par for the course, and while armadillos are generally harmless, they can be dangerous and destructive if they wander into your yard or come into contact with you. Here are some things to know in case you spot one of these critters on your Lake Wales property, the damages they can cause, and the methods the professionals at Critter Control® of Polk County use to safely and effectively remove armadillos.

The Dangers of Armadillos

Armadillos are generally considered to be docile and non-dangerous creatures that will typically leave you alone as long as you do not provoke them. However, they could potentially attack if they feel threatened by your attempt to capture it or if they are cornered by a curious pet or child. If an armadillo does attack, it can transmit diseases like leprosy or rabies to you, your family, or your pets through its scratches or bites.

Damage to Your Home and Property

Armadillos dig dens to provide shelter and search for food. These dens can be up to 15 feet deep and eight inches wide. Florida yards, gardens, and flowerbeds are the perfect place for den digging due to the prevalence of bugs, loose ground, and shrubbery. A single armadillo can dig several dens in one area in its hunt for food or protection. This can, of course, cause costly damage to your lawn and landscaping.

While armadillos are not known to purposefully dig into your home, they have been known to burrow into the underground beneath your home, which can affect the foundational infrastructure of your house.

Rely on Professional Armadillo Removal

Armadillos are not a direct threat to you or your family, but an armadillo on your property does increase the chances of diseases being spread and expensive damage to your yard and home. Because of the danger an armadillo may present to you, call an expert rather than attempting to remove the unwelcome critter from your property yourself. For best results, contact the professional armadillo removal specialists at Critter Control® of Polk County.
