armadillo removal

The population of armadillos in the Southeastern United States has increased significantly in recent years and Central Floridians are certainly no stranger to the small mammal. While they are mostly thought of as harmless creatures, armadillos have been known to behave like nuisance pests due to the amount of damage that they can inflict on Winter Haven residential lawns and commercial properties.

In addition to the yard and property damage, armadillos can also carry and transmit potential diseases to you, your family, and your pets if their presence is not controlled by licensed and trained wildlife professionals — like the Winter Haven armadillo removal experts at Critter Control® of Polk County.

The Danger of an Armadillos Infestation

If you encounter an armadillo outside, it will most likely stay completely still to avoid conflict; however, if it feels threatened, it might bite or scratch you in an effort to protect itself. If you are bitten or scratched by an armadillo, the wound could result in the spread of rabies or leprosy. Dogs and other pets that roam outdoors are most susceptible to an armadillo bite or scratch because they are more likely to come into contact with them out of curiosity. If your pet is bitten or scratched, it is possible for them to spread these diseases to those in your home. 

Potential Damage Caused By Armadillos

Armadillos are burrowers, and Florida backyards are the perfect spot for them to dig a den because of the loose soil, shrubbery, and prevalence of insects. Armadillos like to construct 15-foot-deep and eight-inch-wide dens in backyards as a place to look for food and raise their young. While armadillos are not likely to get into your home, they might build their dens beneath your house, which can cause problems with its foundational infrastructure.
