  • 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 Twin Falls 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 Twin Falls animal control for wildlife issues.

Twin Falls Wildlife Removal Tip: What is the best bait to trap an armadillo?

Armadillos are nuisance animals. They are easy to recognize by the armor like plates that cover their body. They are avid burrowers who need to dig in order to find food. They are nocturnal creatures which mean that your best chance of catching them is to set your trap at night.

Baiting the trap

As previously stated, armadillos dig for their food. This means that they will not easily be lured into a trap. No bait will definitely work. They have very bad eyesight, and this can be used to your advantage. If you set the trap in an area that they frequent you can trick them into entering it.

Best trap

The best trap to use is the normal cage that is used to trap skunks or raccoons. The size will be able to contain your armadillo. Make sure that the holes are not too large or the armadillo could escape.

Setting up the trap

1. Make sure that the trap is set on a flat surface. Armadillos have very keen hearing, if the trap rattles when they step onto it they will leave.
2. Make sure that you lead them towards the opening. It is possible to do this by using gates to lead them towards the opening. If it is their only choice, they will walk right into it.
3. Try to set the trap next to a wall. Armadillos often use the wall as a guide as to where to walk.
4. Wash the cage well. They have a very good sense of smell. If they smell another animal on the cage, they will flee rather than approach.

What next?

If you have caught the armadillo, you need to decide what to do next. You can place it in your car and cover the cage with a towel. When you get to an area where you can release it, just open the door to the cage and let it go. Make sure that it is legal in your state to relocate a wild animal. There are laws prohibiting it in some states.

Injured armadillo

If you injure the armadillo while trying to capture it you will need to phone a wildlife rescue center. Your best bet would be a private sanctuary as the state-run ones will rarely assist you when it comes to nuisance animals. You can look on the internet in order to find the one closest to you. Phone them to find out whether they work with armadillos.
