Armadillo Removal: Safe & Humane

Luckily, armadillos don’t usually find their way into homes, so the problems they cause are limited to the outdoors. 

The main purpose of our services is to safely relocate armadillos away from homes where they can cause damage and be injured or killed by frustrated homeowners. Wildlife X Team Armadillo Removal includes all of the following steps: 

  • Inspection – Because armadillos are more active at night, you may not actually see them. We can inspect your property to determine if armadillos are actually the problem. 
  • Removal – We don’t kill armadillos on your property unless it is clear from their behavior that they are rabid. Our team relies on humane trapping practices to catch armadillos safely. 
  • Relocation – Studies show that an armadillo released within 5 miles of where it is found has a very good chance of survival. 
  • Prevention – After your removal services, we can then suggest means of protecting your property from armadillos in the future. 

We’re a professional team that offers quality results for all your wildlife removal needs, including armadillos and other pests. Don’t hesitate to call us when an armadillo is damaging your property.

Common Armadillo Problems

Armadillos have poor eyesight, and their diet is primarily comprised of insects, larvae and grubs. So you’d think they would be fairly harmless. But you’d be wrong. Armadillos can cause many types of damage while digging for food: 

  • Snout-shaped holes and larger burrows in your yard. Not only do they look terrible, but you can step in these holes and injure yourself. 
  • Garden damage from burrowing. Armadillos will occasionally eat soft roots and vegetation as well. 
  • Weakened foundation from continued burrowing. Armadillos are persistent. If they are digging near your home, they can actually affect the integrity of your home. 
  • Damage to walkways, roads, and bridges. Like homes, these structures can also be weakened by armadillo burrowing. 
  • Armadillos nest in shrubbery, rocks, flower beds and around the trees. Depending on your landscaping design, these elements could be very close to your home. 

And of course, an armadillo that finds its way into your garage or an outbuilding can be extremely dangerous when confronted. Although it isn’t common for armadillos to willingly enter homes and other buildings, it isn’t unheard of. 

Whether inside or outside, an armadillo needs to be redirected to safety.

ARMADILLO SAFETY TIPS

Armadillo Awareness

Armadillos can cause a lot of damage before you realize they are there. By the time you see a burrow or spot an armadillo in your yard, it has already been there for days, digging and possibly building a nest.

Armadillo Armor

Armadillos are tough, thanks to their thick armor, sharp teeth and claws. While their natural prey response is to stay completely still and wait for danger to pass, they will attack a human when pressured.

Armadillo Advice

Our team is knowledgeable and prioritizes education, so in addition to removing armadillos, they can also explain armadillo behaviors and give tips on how to keep your landscaping and garden safe from them.

DON'T TRY DIY!

Although they are not aggressive, armadillos can cause damage to landscapes and gardens digging for insects, which is the most common reason Austin residents call Wildlife X Team in Austin to rid their property of these pests.
