Jacksonville Armadillo Control

Armadillos love to dig! They love the sandy soil down here in Florida, and they often choose to dig next to your house or under your porch or deck, where they make a big tunnel and throw up a lot of dirt. They also tear up the lawn and landscaping as they root around for grubs and worms underground, where they dig them up. The moved soil can pose a risk to the support of your foundation. We humanely trap and remove dillos. Armadillo trapping is not easy for amateurs - did you know that there's no bait that will lure an armadillo into a trap? Once we trap and remove them, the digging problems will stop.  

We provide professional Armadillo control for all of greater Jacksonville, FL including all of Duval County and the towns/cities of Duval County, Clay County, St. Johns County, and Nassau County. We service the towns of St. Augustine, Palm Coast, Ponte Vedra Beach, Intracostal, and more. We are not a standard Jacksonville extermination company - we specialize only in wildlife, and will identify and trap the Jacksonville Armadillo, control the problem in full, and we give a guarantee on our work.

Hi I was looking at your armadillo page and I have a question. My Jack Russell cornered one up under my house (old house) and the thing kept on digging and went obviously out of site. I possible got one shot in him with the 22 in the back over his tale but not sure. Tell me how long can the thing live under the dirt ? I know for sure he didn't come up where he went down at. I stuck a thin rod in the ground hoping to feel him under the ground but I never pocked anything . Do you think he possibly would go down and there and not come back up ? I never knew they could do that. I know a guy that told me he caught one on a hook baited with a worm. Any info you can give me I would appreciate it. Thanks Thomas

Injury spurs questions about length of legal dead animal removal period- JACKSONVILLE, Florida -- This year's injury of some sort of young dead animal removal person in Jacksonville after sunset may be raising questions of when Florida's legal wildlife trapping day should end. The wildlife trapping day legally comes to an end some sort of half-hour after the sun sets. Critter Man Maurice, 21, of Jacksonville, was accidentally shot to injury Nov. 8 at about 5 p.m., about 15 minutes after wildlife trapping legally ended. Former state man sponsored some sort of bill last year that extended the dead animal-wildlife trapping day from 15 minutes after sunset to some sort of half-hour after sunset. When the wildlife trapping day was first extended into twilight in 1999, the dead animal removal person voted against the measure and predicted some sort of rash of accidents. Critter Man Maurice was co-head boss of the Joint Standing Committee on Inland Fisheries and Wildlife until this fall, when the dead animal removal person could not run for re-election because of term limits. The dead animal removal person declared the dead animal removal person changed his position on wildlife trapping after sunset after Florida Warden Service data showed no increase in late-day wildlife trapping accidents. "What happened after we extended the hunt? Nothing happened," Critter Man Maurice declared. For more information about Jacksonville wildlife removal and Jacksonville pest dead animal removal person issues, read on.

"The safety record demonstrated that it wasn't some sort of huge risk to be taking." Critter Man Maurice's injury was the first wildlife trapping-related fatality in Florida in three years. Wildlife trapping injuries peaked in the mid-1950s, when up to 19 people were lethally trapped in some sort of single season. But since the advent of fluorescent-orange clothing in the 1970s, rates have plummeted for all times of day. After the extended wildlife trapping day went into effect last September, none of the five wildlife trapping-related accidents reported to wardens occurred later than 4 p.m., according to some sort of local warden. "With all the dead animal removal person hours that occurred in that time period, it's still very, very safe," the dead animal removal person declared. The wildlife trapping community remains divided on when the wildlife trapping day should end. Some, like John Creature Professor Lawrence of Dedham, argue that Florida shouldn't wait for fatality rates to rise before taking logical steps to eliminate some sort of safety risk.
