Houston armadillo control

We are experts in armadillo control, but are not your typical Houston, Texas 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

Do mothballs or ammonia help repel armadillos? - Mothballs and/or ammonia are common DIY remedies on the internet for dealing with nuisance animals, and the first clue they aren't effective is that they seem to be used for everything. While it's true neither substance has an appealing odor, it is also true neither substance was designed for nuisance animal control. Mothballs are specially formulated for controlling insects, and this they do very well. So well, in fact, that they contain known carcinogens, so this is definitely not a product you just want hanging around. Ammonia is good for cleaning, and that's about it. Its ability to cut through greases doesn't give it any special powers against armadillos, yet people continue to use it religiously in armadillo control. Not only do such smells mean nothing to armadillosno warning of predators or dangerwhen used in such an open space as your yard, they are rendered completely ineffective. All the armadillo needs to do is walk five feet to the right or left and the ammonia smell is gone.


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