Armadillo Removal and Control

How Do I Get Rid of Armadillos in Louisiana?

Armadillo removal and control is a common call that is received in the North and Central Louisiana area. There is only one type of armadillo in Louisiana, the nine-banded armadillo, in which we are called to remove and control. Armadillos do various amounts of damage to yards and flowerbeds; they do a tremendous amount of damage to grasses and ornamental flowers, and can wreak havoc on a golf course.

The nine banded armadillo has many predators and natural enemies that include bobcats, dogs, raccoons, coyotes, black bears, and humans. The nine banded armadillo is one of the hardest animals in the South to catch and many homeowners become frustrated with their inability to catch the armadillo. Trapping the armadillo is a relatively simple process if given the right experience and the right equipment.

How Do I Remove Armadillos?

Trapping armadillos is the best and most successful way to get rid of them. Armadillo removal can be a bit tricky since there is no real effective armadillo bait. The most important factor in this process is the placement of the trap; if you understand the animal and its habits, you can set the trap in a place where it will walk right in. Our professional wildlife control operators are well versed in animal behavior, and we know how to get rid of armadillos.

What Attracts Armadillos?

They like dense, shady cover and will inhabit brush, woodlands, forests, and areas near creeks and rivers. They may dig out their burrows inside rock piles, stumps, thick brush, under a deck or in a crawlspace. Sometimes our customers request armadillo removal because the animals take up residence in their crawlspaces and keep them awake at night by rubbing their shells against the house.

Can Armadillos Damage My Lawn?

Armadillos have powerful digging claws, and armadillo holes destroy grass and mar landscaping. Armadillos rip up sod as they search for grubs and insects to eat, leaving shallow holes scattered around your property. Armadillo dens are deeper and longer holes, and can cause costly structural damage when they are located under stairs, decks, porches or foundations.

What Health Risks Do Armadillos Pose?

Rabies They can carry rabies, a progressive virus which paralyzes and can kill any mammal, including humans. Armadillos generally transmit rabies through biting. Since they rarely bite, contracting rabies from this animal is not a high risk.
Leprosy Armadillos are the only animals that can transmit leprosy. It is estimated that in some areas of the southern United States more than half of them carry leprosy.
Salmonella People infected with salmonella bacteria can become seriously ill with diarrhea, vomiting, fever and chills. It is spread through the fecal matter of many animals.
