Some children may be excited to come home one evening and spot an armadillo in their yard, but there’s a good chance their parents won’t share that same excitement. Armadillos can carry disease, wreak havoc on gardens and are notoriously tough to trap and remove.

We are located in Mandeville, Louisiana, and serve the entire metro New Orleans area including St. Tammany, Orleans, Jefferson & Tangipahoa Parishes. We also serve the Mississippi Gulf Coast including Hancock & Harrison County MS.
Why Worry About an Armadillo Problem?
Generally speaking, armadillos do not pose any significant health risks to humans. In some cases, they have been linked to transmitting leprosy in humans, but otherwise are not known for carrying diseases, unlike many other types of Louisiana wildlife. They are also not aggressive animals, and tend to avoid contact with humans, coming out of their dens primarily at dusk or dawn.
So, why is it important to remove and trap armadillos when they are found on your property? Armadillos primarily cause problems for property owners through damage to gardens and the holes that they dig when looking for food or building their dens.
An armadillo can cause serious structural and drainage problems for your home or building if it decides to create a den under the foundation. Depending upon the size of the armadillo, and the entire armadillo family, the den could extend as long as 15 or more feet below your house. This creates openings for additional pests, could allow for water to pool under your building, and could weaken the structural integrity of your home.
Many of our clients call for armadillo trapping and removal in Louisiana and Mississippi because they are tired of the damage to their gardens or the many deep holes created throughout their yard. The armadillos dig deep openings as they search for ants, grubs and other insects. They can also be very irritating nuisances if you attempt to maintain a garden at your home.
Should I Build a Fence to Keep Armadillos Out?
A fence may deter armadillos from coming into your yard, but if they want into your space, this is definitely not going to stop them. Armadillos are built for digging, and can easily burrow right under the expensive fence that you have installed. If you have seen armadillos on your property, there is also a good chance that you already have a den nearby.
