Many of California's wild animals have learned to adapt and even thrive in our homes. For example some wildlife have found that attics make great places to live. Other animals find refuge under homes or porches. Invariably, these animals cause damage. Rodents, like squirrels and rats, love to chew on electrical wires once in an attic, and this causes a serious fire hazard. Raccoons can cause serious contamination in an attic with their droppings and parasites. Same goes for bat or bird colonies. We specialize in solving California's wildlife problems, from snake removal to large jobs like commercial bat control, we do it all.

We do not handle dog or cat problems. If you need assistance with a domestic animal, such as a dog or a cat, you need to call your local Santa Barbara county animal services for assistance. They can help you out with issues such as stray dogs, stray cats, spay & neuter programs, vaccinations, licenses, pet adoption, bite reports, deceased pets, lost pets, local animal complaints and to report neglected or abused animals. There is no free Santa Barbara animal control for wildlife issues.

Santa Barbara Wildlife Removal Tip: How to use one-way exclusion funnels to remove armadillos without trapping them

Armadillos have a propensity for leaving where they aren't needed, plus if that position is on your terrace, you have a genuine issue. As they dive their homes in the ground, it could do genuine harm to your yard. On the off chance that you have pets, 1 of them is probably going to wind up getting damage. It's not the Armadillo's blame, but rather, in any case, it's gotta go. So if you want to get rid of it without causing it harm the best way is to use a one-way exclusion funnel, also known as one-way door funnels. This will cause it to leave completely unharmed to find a new home.

While it is possible to make your own, you can also buy one for only around $20. Whether you made it or bought it, you may not know how to use it. To ensure the funnel works properly, and that no harm comes to the armadillo, it is important that you know how to use it.

The following is a step by step walkthrough of how to properly use a one-way exclusion tunnel to rid yourself of your pest problem, while not harming or trapping them in any way.

1. The first thing you want to do is find out which hole the armadillo favors. It will likely have several exits to its tunnel, but in most cases, it will have one primary tunnel that it uses the majority of the time.

2. You may also want to consider blocking the other exits. While this is not required, it will help ensure that the armadillo will go through your funnel. It may avoid the funnel if there are other ways out of its hole.

3. If you do decide to block the other exits it is important to use steel or a similarly solid material to ensure the armadillo does not dig through it.

4. Imagine the funnel like a traffic cone. While the creature can squeeze through by coming up the inside of the bottom, it cannot get back in through the top. Thus, it is important to make sure that the wider end of the funnel is placed closest to the hole in question.

5. Be sure to check it regularly to ensure that the armadillo has not become stuck inside, as this can cause harm to it, and given enough time, starve it.

6. Simply wait until the armadillo comes through the funnel. Once it finally does, it will discover it has no way back into its tunnel, and it will leave to find a new location for a home.

And just like that your yard is your own again, and best of all nobody got hurt!
