Get Rid of Your Armadillo Problem Fast!
Armadillo Removal and Armadillo Trapping is the best method of removing these nuisance pests from your property. Trapping is the fastest, most effective method of preventing an armadillo from destroying your lawn. It is often a tricky process because they are not attracted to food on the ground or a baited trap. These animals will not freely go into a cage trap in search of food. Armadillos primarily dig for their food, hence why they will not enter a baited cage trap freely. This is why trapping an armadillo should be handled by a professional Wildlife Control professional of Nuisance Wildlife Rangers. We are experts at Armadillo Trapping and have successfully provided these services throughout South Florida, Tampa, Fort Myers and Orlando areas.
Remove Armadillo Food Sources
The first armadillo removal method that we recommend goes right to the source. We’re talking about removing the things that are actually attracting the animal to your property in the first place. It’s generally easy and cheap to do, but it’s not always a foolproof solution.
In general, armadillos love to eat bugs, grubs, and worms as well as small plants. These are all things that are found in the ground. For this reason, it’s impossible to completely remove all an armadillo’s food sources from your yard. We also don’t recommend purging your yard of every single insect – this can cause other unforeseen problems.
What we do recommend is simply cleaning up your property. It pays to rake up any fallen leaves, berries, or other tasty plant parts. Additionally, removing brush and woodpiles can also effectively deter an armadillo. These animals like to make their burrows in areas with lots of cover. Clearing your yard as much as possible will make it less attractive to armadillos.
Use High-Quality Fencing
Fencing in your yard or garden can have a big impact. It’s effective at preventing armadillos and other nuisance critters from raiding your veggie plot or tearing up your flower beds. The main drawback to these fencing methods is cost.
There are two types of fencing that we recommend at Nuisance Wildlife Rangers. The first is your typical in-ground chain link fencing. However, the fencing must be installed properly. To effectively deter armadillos, we suggest installing the fence so it goes at least 12-18 inches into the ground. If you can slant the buried portion outwards at about a 40-degree angle, that will be even better.
We also recommend electric fencing, but only to clients with no small children or pets. A single electric fence line that’s low to the ground (less than 6 inches high) can work wonders against armadillos.
Armadillo Bait and Live Trapping
If prevention fails, then trapping is your best method for armadillo removal. At Nuisance Wildlife Rangers, we are armadillo trapping experts. We use sturdy steel cage traps to effectively and humanely trap and remove these animals.
The key to successful armadillo trapping is location. Armadillos need to get pretty close in order to recognize something as a food source, so you need to set your trap close to where the animal will be. The best way to do this is to look for signs of armadillo damage like holes or burrows. You should place your trap as close to these as possible.
We recommend using natural baits like worms and crickets to attract armadillos. Keep in mind that because these animals are nocturnal, you’ll have the best odds of success if you set the trap at dusk then check it in the morning.
