Armadillo closeup in a cage trap.

Customer Armadillo Email: Hello, I came upon your site as I was doing some research about armadillos. I believe I have one that comes back to my yard, and keep digging holes along my fence, etc... I was thinking of buying a trap, but after I found your site, I was curious as to what you would charge to place a trap at my house, wait until it gets in, and then your remove it? I live near UCF. Any and all info regarding this problem would be welcome. Thank you! Ann

My Answer: Armadillos can be tricky to catch, and it's not legal in FL for you to do so yourself. I'd be happy to come to the UCF area to take care of your armadillo problem.

The Nine-Banded Armadillo is definitely an unusual creature. They are not native to anywhere in the United States. They were introduced from Central and South America. This nocturnal creature actually sleeps about 20 hours per day, inside a large burrow that it dug. It has several such burrows, and if you're concerned about dillos on your property, there's a good chance you've already noticed a big armadillo hole dug out near your house. This animal emerges at night and forages for insects, primarily underground earthworms and grubs. They can dig up a lot of dirt in one night, and you may have noticed your nice yard or landscaping dug full of small holes. There are many interesting facts regarding this mammal, such as the fact that mothers always give birth to quadruplets, so if you want to learn more, please read my How To Get Rid of Armadillos page.
