Duval County Jacksonville Exterminator Saint Augustine Jacksonville Pest Control

Jacksonville Armadillo Control & Removal

Digging in Your Yard? Armadillos are a common nuisance species in the Jacksonville Bay area, though they usually inhabit suburban areas, and are less common in more heavily-populated urban sections of Jacksonville. Armadillos are nocturnal animals. They sleep almost 20 hours per day. But when they are active, they furiously root around, digging up the yard, flower beds, etc looking for earthworms and grubs. They also burrow underground, where they sleep. They often dig large holes right next to homes, or in the shrubs, or under the porch or concrete deck. They can dig very large burrows, and often leave a very large pile of soil outside of the hole. They can remove enough dirt from underneath a house or concrete deck to undermine the support and cause foundation cracking. We humanely trap and relocate these interesting and unusual critters - armadillo trapping is not easy, but we have a perfect success rate.

One of our customer cases:

Hello, I was just browsing your website to find information on catching an armadillo. I live in Jacksonville, the Palm Vally area in Florida. I woke up yesterday and found my yard overtaken by deep holes lol. Especially near my garden (hanging peppers and tomatoes plants) but also throughout the yard. I am positive the little sucker got a lot of earth worms because the other day I was landscaping and came across many of them. In the past my parents have had to just get rid of them with a shovel if you know what I mean. But I would like to try and catch the little pest and get rid of him. Instead of hiring someone to come and remove the armadillo can I purchase a trap of my own and then call someone to come pick it up? Or do you suggest just hiring someone to come set traps? I have not seen any new holes, but I don’t want him coming back. Do they usually come back to the same property twice? My yard is not very big and this is the first time I have had the problem. Thanks for any information you can provided. I have already written down the local wildlife removal companies number here in Clearwater to see what they will charge. But I would like to try and catch him on my own first. Thanks, Natasha
