Armadillos are the New World armored mammal of the order Edentata, a group that also includes the sloth and the anteater , characterized by peglike teeth without roots or enamel. Armadillos are found from Argentina to Panama, with one species reaching the southern United States. The head and body of an armadillo are almost completely covered by an armor of plates made of bone and horny material; the plates are separated by soft skin which bears a few hairs. The body armor, or carapace, hangs down on either side of the animal’s body and is divided into flexible bands across the back. Members of some armadillo species can roll into a ball for protection. Armadillos are omnivorous, although insects form the bulk of their diet. Most are nocturnal, resting during the day in burrows that they excavate with their strong front feet and enormous claws; damaged yard by armadillo they can dig into the ground with amazing speed and ruin yards and flower beds over night.

Armadillo Removal Procedures
Masters Services will determine the problem areas and set traps. Then we will determine how many traps are necessary to quickly resolve your armadillo intrusion.
Armadillos are one of the hardest animals to trap because their food source is in the ground, not the trap. They do not come back to the same food source every night, so trapping can take weeks. Sometimes they don’t come back after one night of ruining your yard, but if the do Masters Services Animal Control will trap and relocate them. Trapping for armadillo control is the best method of getting rid of armadillos. Armadillo removal is one of our best services we offer because of our success rate in armadillo trapping.
