orlando armadillo photo Removing and Preventing Armadillos     Wildlife Patrol removes Orlando armadillos through trapping and by hand when possible.  Armadillos are not a dangerous animal, but searching their burrows can be dangerous if other animals - ie diamondback rattlesnakes - have taken over their burrow.  Is there any way to prevent their digging?


Wildilfe Problems Due To Armadillos

Armadillos distress Florida homeowners with their ferocious digging abilities. Nice, neat lawn one day... nice, neat holes the next. Armadillos rip up flower beds and fresh sod in their pursuit of grubs. These critters dig burrows for temporary shelter. If the burrow extends under a building, the concrete foundation may be compromised. Follow the links below to learn more and see why our company provides the best Orlando armadillo control.

Nine-banded armadillos (Dasypus novemcinctus) such as the one you see here have been moving north from South America for the past three million years. Armadillos originated in South America about 50 million years ago, and the nine-banded moved north, crossing the Panamanian land bridge. It is the only armadillo species found in the US, where its range continues to expand. As the armadillo actually has teeth, it is no longer classed as Edentata ("without teeth") but is now usually grouped with the Xenarthra. We have left our armadillo on the Edentates page, because these are still its closest relatives. There are 20 species of armadillo living in Central and South America. Armadillos dig for grubs and create burrows near water with their powerful feet and claws. In addition to grubs, they also eat other insects and invertibrates. These interesting, inoffensive creatures can be seen along roadsides, trails, and streams (where you can see into the brush), usually around dawn and dusk.
I grew up in a more rural part of Florida. Creatures getting in and around your house was the norm. Maybe I was naive to think that "Downtown" (we're close enough to borrow the term, I think) I would be limited to the insect variety. Ants, roaches and termites would be the worry.

Then came the rats. Our affection for citrus trees encourages them as much as their love for the urban environment. Possums have scared the daylight out of me but the nifty trash cans from OUC have minimized that trouble.

But the armadillos. They are driving me crazy. I have seen them as road kill. I have seen the marks on the yard from their dinner escapades. I knew they were around. But a pair have taken up under my house. I think.

A few weeks ago my dogs went nuts. At 3 in the morning. I checked, nothing. Over and over again the same thing. I found nothing in the yard, no sign of humans or animals. I decide to hang. And then I heard it. The sound of something crawling under the house right at my backdoor. I run out and meet mister (or mrs) armadillo trying to get back under. Grabbing a broomstick, I try to deter it (i.e. beat it away) unsuccessfully. Then follows in his/her partner as I am trying to find where the first crawled to.

Now I am freaking out. Are they burrowing under my foundation? I hear a million new creak in the floor. Are they disease ridden? A new baby makes you jump on those thoughts immediately. How to get rid of them? With the internet a my guide, because everything there is true, I find that you have to trap them. And getting some one real to do the work is expensive, for a teacher's salary at least.
