Will A Pest Control Company Remove An Armadillo?

There are several different types of company that can deal with animal problems, and while some large companies will have experts trained on dealing with a variety of animals, most companies will have a specialty. This means that you will need to contact different companies depending on the type of animal that you are dealing with, and not all companies dealing with pest animals can deal with every species. Pest control companies will usually have one specialty, so in most cases they will not be the right professionals to deal with your armadillo infestation, and there are several reasons why.

The Challenges Of Dealing With An Armadillo Infestation

One of the first things to remember is that armadillos have a very strong carapace made of layers of scales and armor plates that are almost impenetrable, which means that lethal trapping is rarely an option with this species. They are also insectivores, meaning that it is very unlikely that they will eat a pellet of poison, as they only tend to eat small animals that are still alive, and prefer to avoid meat or vegetable matter unless there is no other option available. Armadillos are also nocturnal, which means that the work of dealing with them will usually happen at night.

What Are The Specialties Of A Pest Control Company?

Pest control companies will usually be set up to deal with insect infestations, and this will usually involve treating areas of a property or furniture with chemicals to try and cause the insects causing the problem. While they can be very good at their role, and can deal with termites, wasps or ants quickly and efficiently, armadillos are very different animals and that means that the techniques and equipment used for dealing with such a problem are very different to those that can be used with insects.

How To Find A Company That Can Solve Your Armadillo Problem

If you are struggling to find a company that will be able to help you if you have an armadillo living in the area around your property, then there are some good directories of animal removal experts to be found online. Because the companies carrying out this kind of work are generally quite small, you will also find that they will advertise in local newspapers and in the telephone directories, and you can also ask for recommendations from your local veterinary practice or county animal services departments too.
