US Armadillo Trapping & Removal

Armadillo Removal

We understand armadillos and the many problems that they create. The armadillo does not really bite because they have very small mouths and  but they have very powerful claws which attributed to armadillo damage to lawns, gardens, landscaping, plumbing,  electrical wires, underground  cables etc.  Armadillos even dig under pools and cause them to crack and leak.

Armadillo damage is why we are hired to trap and remove all armadillos from  our customers properties. We know how to trap armadillos and how to get rid of your armadillo problems and concerns. We provide armadillo trapping and armadillo removal.

Armadillos are probably  one of the strangest looking creatures you can  find here in North America. They remind me of little odd looking armored dinosaurs running around in the 21st century. They are actually not of this world and are another immigration problem of the invading wildlife kind.

The armadillo is actually a native of Central and South America and mainly in Paraquay. Some species groups, such as the long-nosed armadillos, are widely distributed over the Americas, whereas others, such as the fairy armadillos only found in South America.

The nine-banded armadillo, (Dasypus novemcinctus), is found in the United States, primarily in the south central states (notably Texas), but with a range that extends as far east as South Carolina and Florida and as far north as Nebraska; they have been consistently expanding their range in North America over the last century due to a lack of natural predators, and have been found as far north as southern Illinois and Indiana.

The armadillo is commonly found dead as road kill on the side of the road. One of the primitive ways this species defends itself is it jumps very high when it gets scared. Well sadly  the armadillo has not evolved and  not learned  to jump into traffic when a car scares them  collides with the undercarriage or fenders of passing vehicles . I have read reports of armadillos known to occasionally jump high enough  to smash car windows on smaller chassis vehicles. Ouch !!

 Look Back At Yesterday

The armadillo has a leathery shell which has some value but few deal in the trade and sale of armadillo skins anymore. We don’t sell armadillo skins are any

The Nine-Banded Armadillo has been rapidly expanding its range both north and east within the United States. The armadillo crossed the Rio Grande from Mexico in the late 19th century and was introduced in Florida at about the same time by humans.  By 1995 the species had become well-established in Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Arkansas, Mississippi, Alabama, and Florida, and had been sighted as far a field as Kansas, Missouri, Tennessee, Georgia and South Carolina. A decade later, the armadillo had become established in all of those areas and continued its migration, being sighted as far north as southern Nebraska, southern Illinois, and southern Indiana.

Armadillos can cause damage to lawns, landscaping and even get under neath plumbing and or destroy a pool by creating gaps underneath for pools to crack and collapse. Armadillos often destroy underground cables such as electric, telecommunications, cable, HVAC and power supplies.

We are professional armadillo exterminators and provide professional armadillo trapping services.
