Armadillo Control in Memphis
Getting Rid of Armadillos in Shelby County
Armadillos are native to the southwestern area of the country and have expanded their territory into Tennessee, where they have become a common nuisance. At Wildhawk Wildlife, we offer armadillo control in Memphis and Shelby County. We have more than a decade of experience and a commitment to humanely remove the animals and restore your property.
Problems Caused By Armadillos
Armadillos don’t see well and are most active at night. Some armadillos carry leprosy, which can be spread in their saliva to humans. This is rare and the main trouble caused by armadillos is the result of their natural feeding habits. They dig holes in search of food, which can destroy your lawn, garden, shrubs, and plants on your property.
If armadillos have invaded your property, call (901) 437-0003 for reliable solutions at competitive prices.
Signs of armadillo damage include:
- Uprooted plants
- Many holes that are just a few inches deep
- Burrows near the perimeter of your home, rock piles, or sidewalks
- Cracks in driveways
- Possible damage to underground pipes
The damage caused by armadillos is not confined to the yard. While the animals don’t really come inside the house, they can dig their burrows along driveways, the walls of home foundations, and other structures. A hole here and there isn’t a huge issue, but their burrows have the potential to cause structural problems over time if they aren’t handled. If you have seen armadillos and have holes in the grass and garden, call for armadillo control in Memphis.
Armadillo Exclusion & Prevention
Since armadillos are most active at night, trapping is often the most effective way to get them off your property. Your experienced local wildlife removal technicians can humanely trap and remove armadillos from your property. Once they are gone, it is important to take steps to keep them away and discourage others from making themselves at home.
Your technician can help you consider the features of your property that may be attracting the animals, such as food sources and places for hiding. You can reduce hiding spots and food sources by keeping bushes trimmed, clearing leaves, rock piles, and other yard debris, and avoiding allowing grass or shrubs to get overgrown.
Armadillos can cause significant damage with the holes they make when searching for food and their deeper burrows. Catching the problem early can reduce the impact on your property. After the armadillos are gone, the holes will need to be filled in. If the infestation has been large or long-term, any damage to the property will need to be repaired.
