Are Armadillos Pests?
There is no doubt about the fact that armadillos should be considered pests whether it’s for their constant digging, which makes a mess of the landscaping and also poses a significant threat to the plants; or for burrowing beneath structures, which could damage your homes foundation.
There are also rare cases of armadillos spreading serious diseases to humans, but this is a secondary concern when compared to what they can do to your property when given the chance.
How Can I Tell If Have Armadillos On My Property?
Most people notice the presence of armadillos on their properties when they start seeing furrows as well as broad but shallow holes where none existed before. It is also common for homeowners to hear rubbing sounds from the animals armored shell against their structures.
You may also notice armadillo tracks, which should have four toes on the front feet and five toes on the back feet. In some cases, individuals may see drag marks from the animal’s tail, which will be more noticeable under drier, dustier conditions.
