Armadillo damage most commonly occurs in the southern United States where these animals take up residence in residential areas. Armadillos cause the most damage to Maine gardens and yards, as they use their strong front feet and claws to dig burrows.
Armadillos are known for digging complex burrowing systems below ground, which can take place right in your Maine yard. Armadillos dig to find food, including insects and grubs. You can identify armadillo burrows by looking for disrupted grass or dirt areas. You may find armadillo burrows around your Maine home, or under the home, driveway or deck. If you believe that an armadillo has been digging around your home, contact Maine Critter Control for assistance in getting rid of the armadillo problem.
Armadillos can cause significant damage to Maine yards and gardens. Fortunately, there are several prevention methods that Maine Critter Control can implement to keep armadillos out of your yard or garden. Trapping armadillos and fencing off Maine yards and gardens is the most common practice for effective control of armadillos. Armadillos can also be forced out of burrows within the yard or garden through strong and unpleasant odors. Maine Critter Control can also help to fill any burrow damage in your Maine yard or garden.
