Boca Raton Armadillo Control & Removal

Digging in Your Yard? Armadillos are a common nuisance species in the Boca Raton area, though they usually inhabit suburban areas, and are less common in more heavily-populated urban sections of Boca Raton. 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:

I've been sitting here reading all those humorous blogs about armadillos, and find myself laughing out loud!! I have some of those critters in my yard right now, and they are digging everywhere!! But I'm not as angry about it after reading your blog!! My husband is going to put out some traps, and see what we get. Trust me on this, I won't wait 6 months to catch something like that one fella did. One week tops and I'll call. Meanwhile, I must humor the husband with his trapping abilities this week. Keep up the good work! Your humor works wonders, and I'm sure it's great for business!!

Hey, thanks for the help and advice! I think I'm going to go and get a few traps then, probably two I guess. I noticed, about 2 months ago, there was a family of them eating in the grass and whatnot, so I know that those babies have probably grown now and there is a bunch all around this swimming pool wall in the 5 or so holes they've dug so far, ugh! But, this weekend, I'll stop by Home Depot and get two of the traps. Well actually, do you think I could just get one? I was thinking if other armadillos saw a "fellow armadillo" trapped inside one of the traps, they would not go into it. Hopefully, they're as dumb as cows (cows will literally stand in the middle of a burning fire and not move, burning themselves alive... cows are actually that dumb). So, hopefully the dillos are dumb like that also, hehe. Oh, another question... how expensive are the traps and are their different kinds or are they all the same? I just have never had a problem with these armadillos so I no nothing of the size, structure or price of the traps (or which brand is a good one, etc.)! If you could help me out with a bit of info on that, it would be greatly appreciated! :)

Oh, dang I forgot to ask you, do you think I can use rat poison and kill the dillos that way, by mixing it with food like tuna fish or something very stinky the dillos might take a few bites out of? Is it illegal to kill them? I don't want to break the law and end up with some hefty fine or even an arrest; I see what they do to people on TV that kill animals on "Animal Cops" or whatever that show is called, lol!!! Even if I don't or can't use that rat poison idea, I still like the idea of getting a trap or two, but I guess when you e-mail me back with the info on the questions I've asked I'll know more, lol. Once again, call that number on that Yahoo webpage link I showed ya and let me know what ya think about advertising there. If not, I can find you a cheaper place, more than likely... :) Thanks again... and thanks for reading my unusually long e-mail, hehe...
