How Is Professional Armadillo Removal Performed?

Trapping is the most common method of armadillo removal used by wildlife control experts. Humane trapping allows wildlife technicians to capture the animals quickly and relocate them to a suitable habitat.

When it comes to armadillo removal, it’s crucial to be prepared with the right tools. Nuisance animal control professionals come equipped with the proper equipment and experience to eliminate an armadillo infestation safely.

Sometimes an armadillo will become stuck, such as in a crawlspace or a window well, and will be unable to escape. Armadillos can quickly die if they fall into a window well or any hole with steep sides because they are poor climbers. Getting an armadillo out of a hole can be difficult, so we recommend hiring a professional instead of trying to do it yourself. This is primarily due to the diseases carried by armadillos. They are the only animals capable of spreading leprosy.

Is Armadillo Removal Dangerous?

When a predator (human or wildlife) approaches, armadillos usually remain motionless. An armadillo, on the other hand, will claw and bite if faced with a severe threat. These armored critters can spread leprosy, rabies, and other diseases by clawing and biting.

Although humans are unlikely to engage in combat with an armadillo, household pets such as dogs, cats, and rabbits may do so. If an armadillo infects your pet, the infection is more likely to spread to your family. Although an armadillo rarely bites or claws another animal, it’s best to keep them away from your home.

Will Armadillos Be Killed During The Removal Process?

The pre-qualified wildlife removal companies provided by Animals Happen only implement humane control methods. This is because we believe that every animal deserves a chance and didn’t intend to become a nuisance. Once the armadillos are captured, they are relocated far away from the property and let free. The animals are taken far enough away to ensure they won’t be able to find their way back.
