  • Scratching Noises in Your Attic?
  • Unwanted Wildlife on Property?
  • Problem Bird or Bat Infestation?
  • Digging Lawn or Under House?
  • We Can Solve It!
Many of Idaho'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 Idaho'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 Blaine 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 Sun Valley animal control for wildlife issues.

Sun Valley Wildlife Removal Tip: Is it legal for me to trap an armadillo?

Armadillos are mammals that are found in the tropical and subtropical parts of South and Central America. They are more inclined to stay in areas with mild temperatures. They mostly live alone but can be found in pairs or small groups as well. Their diet consists mainly of termites, ants, and larvae that they dig up. They have strong, curved claws that enable them to dig for food as well as burrowing.

Catching an armadillo

Catching armadillos are not as easy as it might seem. They dig for food and are not easily baited. Their bad eyesight makes it easy to trick them into a track. You will need to lead them into it by removing all other options. It would not help to bait the trap as they will not be interested. Placing a cage in the area where they are most often found is your best chance of catching them.

How do you know if you have an armadillo in your yard?

As previously stated armadillos dig for food. This is the main reason why people want to get rid of them. This is also the primary indication that you might have a critter living in the vicinity. You will find small holes in your yard. There might also be a large heap of sand where they have excavated a burrow.

Are they dangerous?

Armadillos are not confrontational. They will not attack unless they are infected with rabies. The chance of this is very slim. The main concern is the elaborate burrows that they dig under your home. This could cause massive amounts of damage to your foundation.

Relocating them

Some states require you to kill an armadillo once you have caught them. As they are nuisance animals, it is illegal to relocate them. As they are sometimes found in areas where they are not native, it is also not legal to relocate them. You will need to do some research before you decide to catch and relocate the critter. There are states where it is legal to catch them and relocate them to state property. You are not allowed to release them on someone else's property. In most states you are allowed to trap wild animals if they are a nuisance. However, some states prohibit you from trapping them yourself. You will need to phone a professional if you need to get rid of an armadillo.
