Named after their naturally grown body armor, armadillos are quite common in Florida as the state’s beautiful nature and climate are the creature’s preferred habitat. As a Groveland resident, you have likely seen the ‘little armored ones’ around your neighborhood or even on your property. However, despite their reputation as harmless animals, armadillos can be a threat to your property and health. If you have spotted these creatures, contact the expert team at Critter Control® of Lake County to begin an efficient, eco-friendly, and affordable armadillo removal process.

Protecting Your Groveland Property from Armadillos

Beneath their unique scaly shell, armadillos hide a strong set of legs and lengthy claws with which they constantly dig holes to search for food. Using their prolific sense of smell, these creatures will tear through your lawn and garden in their hunt for the grubs and worms that live beneath the surface — destroying your landscaping and ruining your lawn’s integrity in the process. It is simply an open buffet for them, and they will not stop digging and until they are satisfied. Such costly damage to your flowerful yard will undo the time and money you invested in its maintenance.

Additionally, armadillos excavate sleeping dens that are deeper and wider than their hunting holes. These profound tunnels could not only damage your lawn, but also the electrical lines that run underground as well as your home’s foundational stability. As a gardener and homeowner, armadillos’ digging habits eventually translate to plenty of unnecessary and avoidable reparation costs that will multiply over time.

Health Risks of Invasive Armadillos

Armadillos are not instinctively aggressive, and they will not jump to attack upon encounter. Nevertheless, armadillos will not hesitate to defend themselves if they feel endangered. Attacks on humans are possible but rare, and conflicts between armadillos and domestic pets are not unusual. If your family member or pet is scratched or bitten by this creature, your household could be seriously exposed to various health risks. On top of carrying several diseases like rabies, armadillos are infamous for being the only other animal to host leprosy. These critters have previously caused spikes of leprosy in Florida, and this disease can be costly in health care bills and fatal in the worst cases. To protect your family’s health, it is important to safeguard your property from these infectious and destructive animals with the help of professional wildlife removal services.
