armadillo outside in the woods

Floridians are no strangers to armadillos, as these critters are often encountered next to roads or in other public areas all throughout the state. We offer expert armadillo removal to ensure their safe removal from property. Though armadillos are generally considered to be docile and friendly, they have the potential to transmit diseases and inflict harm. For those in the Lakeland area looking for a cost-effective and safe way to armadillo-proof their properties, the licensed and certified experts at Critter Control® of Lakeland are here to help.

Are Armadillos a Threat to Humans?

Typically, when encountered outdoors, armadillos will remain completely still in order to avoid any form of conflict. However, armadillos could still potentially attack if they find themselves in a situation where they feel threatened. Numerous diseases, including rabies and leprosy could be spread by armadillos if you are scratched or bitten by them. Pets are also highly susceptible to contracting illnesses from armadillos, as they are more likely to interact with them closely. Due to this, pets who have been scratched or bitten by armadillos could potentially spread illnesses to members of your home. This is why it is important to enact proper preventative measures to ensure that armadillos come nowhere close to your property.

Damage Potential of Armadillos

In addition to possibly attacking those who provoke them, armadillos also could do some serious damage to your property. Known to be very proficient at digging, armadillos often will construct 15-foot-deep, eight-inch-wide dens in the soil of residential yards. Some armadillos may even construct more than one den in an effort to scavenge for food and locate a place to raise their young. These dens can prove to be detrimental to the integrity of a lawn. Though armadillos will rarely, if ever, try to enter your home, they are prone to burrowing underground and therefore could occupy the area underneath your home and cause serious damage to its infrastructure.
