Common Armadillo Issues

Armadillos are not known for getting into houses, but they can impact your San Antonio area yard nonetheless. Learn more about armadillo problems below:

Armadillo Yard Damage

The diet of armadillos consists primarily of grubs and insects (nearly 90% of their diet), which means the banded mammals will be prominent in your yard. Farmers have reported a significant issue with armadillos causing crop damage with their digging habits.

Structural Damage

They exist primarily outside, but armadillos’travel behavior is often alongside roads. Their digging habits have been known to weaken roadways and bridges to the point of collapse in extreme cases. They can cause the same weakness along your home’s foundation.

Get Rid of Armadillos

However uncommon, armadillos, like any other wildlife animal, are not a creature you want to have on your property. Call 830.253.2810 today to talk with an armadillo specialist in Wildlife X Team® San Antonio. We can remove armadillos from your property and prevent any future armadillo problems.

What’s the Deal with Armadillos?

  • A unique wildlife critter and the state small mammal of Texas, the armadillo is a mammal covered in natural armor-like bony scales that are composed of keratin (like human hair and nails). This shield is referred to as the osteoderm. The nine-banded armadillo is the only species of armadillo that lives in North America, and its nine bands are actually movable, allowing for flexibility. Their plates overlap and provide extra protection.
  • Giant armadillos have been known to grow over 3 feet long, but the North American species, the nine-banded armadillo, typically grows between 1.5–2 feet including its tail.
  • Armadillos are one of the only animals known to carry the disease of leprosy, which can cause irreversible skin, nerve, limb and eye damage if left untreated.

Project: Highly Recommend
Adam with Wildlife X team was able to come out the very same day (thanks to the very friendly receptionist tracking him down in our desperation) to check out our attic where we heard critters scratching, thumping, and squeaking. He was very friendly and observed COVID rules of masking and distancing. He did a thorough assessment, detailed write-up (which he emailed that same night), and came up with a comprehensive plan to fix and prevent recurrence of our squirrel issue. He was humane in regards to the capture of the animal and their plan to reunite the babies with the mother. HIGHLY recommend this excellent, professional, and knowledgeable team!
