armadillo removal attic trapping wildlife west palm beach port st lucie jupiter Armadillos are considered a pest due to their habit of digging, burrowing, and  excavating. Armadillos use their sharp claws to dig for food, such as grubs, and to dig dens. Armadillos have very poor eyesight, and use their keen sense of smell to hunt for food. Armadillos have short legs, but can move very quickly. Armadillos like to swim, and they are very good at it walking along the bottom of streams and ponds. They can hold their breath for four to six minutes at a time. The nine-banded armadillo is the most common species to Florida.They have an unusual reproductive system, in which four genetically identical offspring are born, the only mammal known to do so. Baby armadillos have soft shells, like human fingernails that get harder as the animal grows, depositing bone under the skin to make a solid shell.

The most common complaints include the following:

  • tunnel under the house
  • Small holes all over the lawn
  • Landscaping/mulch is
  •  uprooted
  • Burrowing is cracking concrete
  • Burrowing is destroying pipes
  • Presence is alarming dogs/pets

For these reasons, many people wish to have this nuisance animal trapped and removed by Buzz Away. We will set up traps close to the hole with a "maze" like wiring to encourage the armadillo into the trap.
