Armadillo trapping and removal by Presto-X, formerly Fischer Environmental in New Orleans, SE Louisiana & MississippiSome 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. Presto-X, formerly Fischer Environmental provides armadillo trapping and removal services throughout Louisiana and Mississippi to safely and effectively remove wildlife that has become a nuisance.

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. However, some of the dangers of armadillos are as follows:

  • They 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.
  • 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.
