We a complete job, from start to finish. We remove wildlife humanely and effectively, using the proper traps, tools, and techniques for each unique animal and situation.
When we encounter animals inside a house, we inspect every part of the house, from ground level to every part of the roof, to identify all the areas of entry, and all vulnerable
areas, and we perform professional repairs, with guarantee, to seal entry holes shut. We inspect inside the attic to find any damage or biohazard, and provide full cleaning services. We offer attic decontamination, poison-free and permanent rodent control,
bat colony exclusion, bird prevention, snake removal, dead animal removal and odor control, and more.
Armadillos and opossums can be a nightmare when
they start to uproot your lawn and dig under your

The nine banded armadillo, which is the only kind of armadillo that includes the United States in its
range, is a very interesting animal. Armadillo is a Spanish word for “little armored one “ and there are
20 varieties of armadillos that live in Latin America. Armadillos have bony plates that it's cover the back,
head, legs and tail of these odd looking creatures. Armadillos are the only living mammals that wear such shells.
Armadillos are most closely related to anteaters and sloths.
The nine banded armadillo is a mainly nocturnal, solitary animal found in habitats from Canada down into South America.
It is classed as an insectivore, which means it feeds mainly on insects but it has been known to eat other small
invertebrates. It has one unique talent in that it can jump straight up for about 3 to 4 feet but it will only do
this if really badly frightened, which as you can imagine makes it a particular danger to motorists.
Armadillos have been expanding their range very fast since the 19th century mostly with the help of human beings, humans
introduced armadillos to Florida in the late 19th century and soon afterwards the animal was not only spreading north through
Texas but North and West from Florida as well. The main reason for this rapid spread in the United States is at the animal has
virtually no natural predators in the US so there is absolutely nothing to stop the expansion continuing. The proliferation of
these animals in some places has led to some states like South Carolina thinking about introducing a hunting season for armadillos,
in South America even though they have natural predators nine banded armadillos since the 19th century have expanded their range
from Brazil down through Uruguay and into Argentina.
Nine banded armadillo's, the most highly prolific of the 20 types of armadillos, weigh weight in up to 14 pounds though the largest
specimen ever caught weighed 22 pounds, they are up to 2 feet long with a tail up to 20 inches long. They stand up to 10 inches tall
at the top of the shell. The shell is made of the same material as claws, hair and human fingernails, keratin.
Armadillos are extensive burrowers, they burrow for their food, and they burrowed to make a place to live, burrowing is also used as
a defense when they are attacked, they quickly dig a shallow burrow and lodge themselves inside it, the predator is then faced with
dealing only with the armadillos armor.
