Getting Rid of Armadillos

Relocation is the best option for safely getting rid of armadillos. These nocturnal animals are not deterred by repellents, and sturdy fences that they can’t dig under can be a costly option for homeowners. While you may be tempted to try to trap and relocate these pests yourself, it’s illegal in Tennessee to do so – not to mention difficult. Armadillos are not easily tempted by bait. Our professional armadillo trappers know how to use the animal’s behavior to safely and effectively trap the armadillo and relocate it.

Armadillo Behavior

Armadillos are unique animals, being the only mammal with natural armor, and there is only one species found in the southern United States – the nine-banded armadillo. They are not native to the area, and do not provide many benefits to the ecology of the land, nor do they cause much harm. Armadillos are not dangerous, especially to humans, due to their incredibly small jaws. An armadillo’s diet consists primarily of earthworms and beetle larvae, which they dig shallow holes to find.

These holes, although small, can cause big problems in your yard like cracked concrete, uprooted plants, or damaged underground wires or pipes. Not to mention the animals themselves have been found to carry the bacteria that causes leprosy in humans. If you have noticed any of the warning signs that an armadillo has been living in your yard, call a pest relocation specialist as soon as possible to keep your family safe and prevent more damage to your home.

Why Armadillo Repellent Doesn’t Work

You may have already tried to get rid of your armadillo problem by purchasing armadillo repellent. The most common tends to be naphthalene armadillo repellent, (made with moth balls), predator urine armadillo repellent, made with coyote or fox urine, or castor oil repellent. These armadillo repellents are not only ineffective, but also damage the environment. Keep your property safe by contacting a professional wildlife trapper to relocate the armadillo quickly and safely.

Our Armadillo Relocation Services

Trapper Jack Wildlife Specialist understands the intricacies of armadillo behavior and how to trap and relocate them safely. While there is no repellent that is effective in keeping them away, we are able to study the subtle (and sometimes not-so-subtle) clues to decide where and how to set up our traps. Preventative measures such as installing a sturdy fence that extends deep underground or laying down gravel or wood chips that are hard to dig through may work for a short while, but the most effective way to get rid of armadillos is through trapping and relocating rather than trying DIY prevention.

Don’t try to get rid of the armadillo in your yard alone. Contact our Nashville armadillo removal specialists at Trapper Jack Wildlife Specialist today at (615) 258-6565 for a free estimate.
