Armadillos are another nuisance animal that is commonly found invading properties of people. They are also carriers of dangerous diseases and must be relocated swiftly if you find an armadillo infestation on your property. Armadillos are not known to be aggressive towards humans and most of the time will pose no serious threat if they are not confronted. However, they may cause significant damage to your property, since they are notorious diggers like moles and can quickly destroy your yard or backyard within a couple of hours.
The destruction of plants and vegetation in the garden is one of the main reasons why armadillos are termed as nuisance animals. They can quickly multiply in numbers as well if left ignored for a significant period of time, and 1 armadillo can quickly turn into 4 or 5 within a matter of months.
Armadillos love to dig, since their main source of food is insects, which are found in abundance under the surface of the earth. A single armadillo can leave countless holes across the length of your lawn and destroy the overall terrain. They can cause the soil to be uneven in some places and may disrupt the foundation of your home with their digging, while also breaking underground plumbing as well.
They are also known to carry a number of dangerous diseases such as rabies, leprosy, salmonella and tapeworms, when they come into contact with humans, which is why it is advised to call wild animal control experts when you are experiencing an armadillo infestation in your backyard.
Armadillos are attracted to lawns and backyards which have moist soil and have a good covering of shade, since that means an ample supply of grub and insects for them.
