Athens-Clarke armadillo control

We are experts in armadillo control, but are not your typical Athens-Clarke, Georgia animal removal company. We do not use poisons or repellents, since no bait works on armadillos, and poison is inhumane. In our armadillo removal process, we trap and relocate the animals. Since armadillos do not respond to bait, the key to permanent armadillo removal is to know exactly what type of trap to use and where to use it — a process that takes experience, which we have practiced and perfected over the years. We completely solve your armadillo problem by taking these steps:

  • Inspect the entire property grounds - lawn, yard, garden, etc.
  • Set several humane traps on your property - the correct and safe way!
  • Remove all armadillos as they are caught and monitor for activity
  • Once there is no more activity and no more armadillos caught, we're done
  • When needed, fill in burrows and seal with underground fencing

Armadillo diseases carried - There is only one serious illness you can get from an armadillo and that is leprosy. This disease thrives in armadillos because of their low body temperature. Humans contract it through excessive handling or consumption of the animal's meat. Leprosy is a bacterial disease that causes lumps and sores on the skin along with neurologic damage and muscle weakness. It is not a disease that occurs often, and it's incubation period can be substantial, making it almost impossible to determine where the bacteria was contracted from. There are around 100 cases reported to health care official annually in The United States. Most of the cases are in the southern states and Hawaii. Leprosy is treatable with multiple antibiotics and anti-inflammatories. While on treatment, people who have the disease cannot transmit it to others. There is no need to isolate people with symptoms as was common practice decades ago. The best method for prevention of disease contraction from an armadillo is to not handle or eat the animal. While armadillo meat is a rare commodity in some parts of the country, it must be cooked to appropriate temperature to render it harmless.

We do not do traditional Athens-Clarke pest control for armadillos, nor Athens-Clarke exterminator services. We are a humane wildlife-only specialists, and we focus on burrowing animals.
