3 Armadillo Dangers You Should Be Aware Of

Armadillo Dangers Orlando

Armadillos are some of the most common critters found in Florida properties. Because most of us are aware that they’re not known to attack humans, we usually let them be. However, there are more armadillo dangers than many of us know of. So if you see one or a few of these critters in your property, seek for professional assistance right away. The sooner you have them captured, the better.

They don’t usually bite or attack humans and pets but it’s always a possibility especially when armadillos feel threatened. Just because you won’t get bitten or scratched doesn’t mean it’s safe to have armadillos around. Some of the usual armadillo dangers are the very signs of their presence in your property such as the following:

  1. Armadillos are great diggers and burrowers
  2. Armadillos can destroy vegetation and landscaped gardens
  3. Armadillos may carry diseases

1. Armadillos are great diggers and burrower

They can dig tunnels that are larger than the usual. It’s probably acceptable if they do this in your garden especially if you don’t have a landscaped one, but it gets dangerous when they dig around or under the structure of your property. This can result in cracked concrete and weakened structures.

2. Armadillos can destroy vegetation and landscaped gardens

As mentioned above, these critters are persistent diggers. One armadillo can successfully uproot your plants and flowerbeds and destroy your well-maintained vegetable plot!

3. Armadillos may carry diseases

Some studies prove that armadillos are potential leprosy virus carriers. This is probably the most serious among all armadillo dangers that you should be aware of. To avoid getting infected, use gloves when cleaning up after dug up soil that is possibly caused by armadillos. More importantly, call for professional armadillo removal assistance.

  • I live in Port Orange and have a large armadillo that roots down into the crawl space under my front porch. How much will it cost me to have you trap and move him out?

    yes Armadillo are really cool animals

  • I have Amadil in my backyard. What should I do? I live in Chapel Hill Tennessee.

  • I have 3 armadillos that frequent the crawl space under my house. My home is a wood frame structure on piers. I see them as a Blessing – they root and dig under there eating any and all insects especially any termites. I welcome them every few months when they show up.
