Armadillo exterminator

Keeping armadillos out of your yard can be a tricky thing. Armadillos visit your yard in search of food and shelter. They can cause structural damage to your house and pool. Armadillos are four-footed, armor-plated mammals. They are about the size of a small dog or medium-sized cat. Armadillos awake at night and sleep in the day; they have very poor eyesight. Armadillos are not aggressive; they just want to eat insects. Armadillos carry many diseases that can be dangerous for humans and pets. How to prevent armadillos from entering into your property: To stop armadillos from entering into your property, here are a few methods you can use. Build a fence around your property. Armadillos can easily dig through most any kind of soil. Therefore fence should be at least 4 feet buried under the soil. The top fence should be at a 45-degree angle to the ground. It will prevent them from hopping the barrier. Install chicken wire along with the house and bury it in the same manner. Wooden lattice can also be used for this purpose. If there are any holes in the ground, fill them. Most people recommend filling the holes by adding mothballs in the soil; this can be very effective. Strong smelling substances like vinegar, ammonia can be placed at entry points of armadillos; these substances will help you to keep armadillos out of your property. Using Traps Special traps can be placed strategically on the yard with armadillo invasion. Armadillos can get trapped and killed, or you can release them at any other place. Armadillos have a strange behavior of digging burrows in the house. It is important to get rid of armadillos as soon as possible if you don’t want your yard destroyed. Use cayenne pepper Sprinkling Cayenne pepper around your home is considered one of the most effective methods to keep armadillos out of your yard. As an armadillo sniffs cyanine pepper through its nose, it leaves your place as soon as possible, for best results keep sprinkling the cayenne pepper twice a week, so that no armadillo returns back. Using Predators urine Like every other animal, armadillo also has predators that treatments its survival on earth. Getting the urine of its predators will make this animal pick race out of your yard and will never wish to return. Put the urine in several smaller containers and place them at strategic locations around your home, when the animal perceives the smell, it will quickly find its way out of the yard. Keeping dogs Armadillos are afraid of dogs. If they smell a dog or they hear barking dogs, they will run away from your yard quickly.
