Pest Control for Armadillos

Click here for my nationwide list of 100's of professional armadillo control experts!

If armadillos, or dillos as some call them, are your pests, then you need them physically trapped and removed. Most pest control companies are used to spraying poisons for insects and small invertebrates. They don't deal with larger animals, like mammals and reptiles. The armadillo is a mammal, and the only way to stop armadillo damage is to catch the armadillos in a cage and have them taken away from the area.



Here we see an armadillo in a cage, caught by a professional wildlife management company, not a pest control company. If you ever have any problems with wild animals, don't look under the "Pest Control" or "Exterminator", or "Extermination" section of your local yellow pages, look under the "Animal Removal" or "Wildlife Control" section, and get a real pro to take care of those armadillos once and for all. This site has links to professional trappers throughout the country, though of course armadillos only live in the southern states, like Texas, Florida, Georgia, Alabama, Louisiana, etc.

What Happens To The Armadillo After Removal? One of the natural reactions of many people who find they have an armadillo problem is to call a professional pest control company to deal with the problem, but what happens to the armadillo will often depend on the location. Different states will have different rules about dealing with non native species, and whether or not they can actually be trapped and released elsewhere or whether they have to be taken to an official facility to be destroyed. Many states will also have regulations about using lethal traps to deal with armadillos, so they can be a difficult problem to solve. There are some states that do allow for the armadillos to be trapped and then released some distance from where it was causing the problem, and this is often the most humane way to deal with an armadillo. The majority of pest control companies that can work in this way will look for locations close to the natural habitats such as swampy or wetland areas, or woodland areas. For those people who are concerned about the humane treatment of animals, it is always worth checking with your pest control company to make sure that they do take steps to this effect.
