Tampa Armadillo Removal

ARMADILLO INFORMATION: Armadillos are unusual creatures. These ancient animals have a hard bony covering to protect their body. They are usually nocturnal, and spend most of their time sleeping. They live in underground burrows, which they dig. They primarily eat earthworms and other invertebrates, such as grubs, that they dig out of the ground. Armadillos usually weigh about 14 pounds as adults. The young, born in spring, are always quadruplets. They can live for a very long time, but are often hit by cars.

These are the most common complaints about armadillos in Tampa:

  • Large burrow next to house.
  • Large burrow under deck or lenai.
  • Lots of digging in yard or flower beds.

Hey we just saw an armadillo in our yard and I just wanted general information about the animal when I stumbled upon your website. I don't think that the armadillo will be a real problem, but we live on a pond and have multiple creatures around here that I could see need removal of. I realize you are in the Tampa Florida area, but I was wondering if you know of this type of business in the Jacksonville/Northeast Florida area? I love how you take care of the animals in a humane way. Thanks Jstobe

Hello Mike, Just for your information: Location is South Tampa Bay, Time frame: April. I have had armadillos tearing up my garden and yard the last two years. I do not know where the burrow is/was. I set my trap with many 2x10s to guide them into the trap. I had no success. Tried for weeks. Last year I finally tried a half of a banana in the trap. Bingo. The first night I caught the male. The second night I caught another (sex unknown) assume female. This year I had Armadillos tearing up my garden/yard again. This time I used no boards as guides, just set the trap where they were digging. I baited again with a half banana. Success. I have caught two this year using the banana for bait. My yard is more than half acre and the digging was in a large area. No scientific proof, I just know that the banana has worked all four times I tried with the bait. Now I have to figure out the best way to send them to Armadillo Heaven. My pellet gun is not effective. Do you know any good recipes? Armadillo topped with bananas and chocolate sauce! Richard
