How Much Does Armadillo Removal Cost?

Known for their scaly back and tendency to dig, South American armadillos have become a common nuisance throughout Central Florida. While they’re usually harmless, armadillos cause a lot of problems in backyards and gardens. If you see an armadillo on your Lake County property, it’s best to remove it; however, removal costs and techniques can vary.

Here are a few risks associated with armadillos as well as how much armadillo removal can cost.

Diseases Armadillos Carry

Armadillos are usually docile, and they will usually freeze or roll into a ball if they’re spotted. However, if they feel threatened, they will attack. These creatures pose a threat to both humans and any curious pets who get too close or try to catch them. In addition to having large claws, armadillos can carry several diseases such as leprosy and rabies. These diseases can be passed through touch, so it’s best to hire an expert to get up close when removing an armadillo from a property.

Damages Cause by Armadillos

Armadillos use their large claws for burrowing in the rich, loose soil commonly found in Florida flowerbeds, gardens, and backyard. When armadillos burrow, they create large holes that they turn into dens, which can get up to 8 inches wide and 15 feet deep. If an armadillo chooses to burrow in the wrong spot, they can rip up your lawn and garden, break underground pipes, and even cause foundational damage under your home.

Armadillo Removal Costs

No two infestations are the same; therefore, the cost of armadillo removal is always different. Several factors determine how expensive armadillo removal will be, including the severity of the infestation and the amount of damage caused.

While a severe armadillo infestation may cost you money, the risk associated with removing armadillos yourself outweighs the price of hiring armadillo removal professionals. In order to protect your home and your health, leave it to the experts at Critter Control® of Lake County.
