Most armadillo removal jobs involve trapping and removing the animals using ground-based live cage traps, which is much easier than dealing with critters inside a structure. This procedure necessitates a few service visits and relocation trips or euthanasia fees, if necessary. Please keep in mind that these prices are not set in stone. Prices vary from town to town, depending on a variety of factors.

A simpler armadillo removal job will require two visits: 1st is to set the traps, and the 2nd to remove traps and relocate the armadillos. These straightforward infestations cost anywhere from $200-400 to remove.

More extensive jobs will require the installation of armadillo proofing materials to ensure the critters don’t come back. A job such as this can cost anywhere from $400 to $1000.
