If you live here in Brevard County, FL you have seen our little dinosaur friends at one point or another…armadillos! Most people are used to seeing them on the side of the road after being hit by a car, however these guys can be a huge nuisance in your yard. The dig big holes to hide it, and love to tear up gardens and flower beds searching for food. Nothing will ruin your new landscaping faster than a hungry armadillo.
Like most wild animals, armadillos can carry disease. The disease most people associate with them is leprosy. You can contract this disease through direct contact with an armadillo or fresh feces, so please stay clear…do not try and touch an armadillo, or catch it with your bare hands. Their bacteria containing feces can also be harmful to children and pets, so you can see why its important to keep your yard free of these invaders.
Our team here at Centurian is highly trained and skilled in trapping, relocating and handling these unwanted yard guests. Nick has some sort of special armadillo sense and has an amazing track record trapping and relocating them daily.
If you see any signs of armadillos, give us a call and we will be happy to safely, humanely take care of your issue.
