Signs an Armadillo is on Your Property

If you live in Dallas, San Antonio, Orlando, Tampa, Charleston, Savannah, or Hilton Head, and you notice burrows and holes around your home, you might have armadillos.  Armadillos can cause problems when they dig in gardens and yards looking for grubs. Their feeding activities leave behind holes several inches deep, tear up flowerbeds, uproot shrubs and saplings, and destroy garden vegetables.

Dangers of wildlife icon

Risk of Armadillo Infestation

Armadillo digging can undermine the structural integrity of foundations, driveways, and sidewalks when the animals burrow under these areas. Their digging while foraging for food and burrowing may also increase the potential for topsoil erosion. Armadillos have been known to carry the bacteria responsible for causing leprosy, which may transfer to humans who come into physical contact with the creatures.

Trapping & Removal

Individuals should never attempt to trap or handle wild armadillos without the assistance of wildlife control specialists. Trutech wildlife experts can safely remove the nuisance animals and safeguard property owners from the risk of harmful bites, scratches, and bacterial infections.

Wildlife exclusion icon

Prevention & Exclusion

The best way to exclude armadillos from private properties is to remove their access to food sources. Colonies of ants or termites in residential areas should be eliminated, which can be a rather involved process requiring the talents of pest control specialists. Although armadillos are proficient climbers and burrowers, they can be restricted from yards and gardens by installing outward-angled fences buried at least a foot into the ground.
