  • We Can Solve It!
Many of New York'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 New York'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 Westchester 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 Eastchester animal control for wildlife issues.

Eastchester Wildlife Removal Tip: How do I keep armadillos out of my yard?

In many areas of the United States, especially those where armadillos' populations are exploding, there are increasing problems between homeowners and wild animals. Homeowners might be unaware of the amount of damage that an armadillo can cause by making its home in your yard- not to mention the diseases and other problems that these creatures can give you, your kids, and even your other pets. Fortunately, however, there are many ways to prevent armadillos from getting into your yard and ruin all of your hard work in days.

Often, one of the first signs that armadillos have intruded your yard is through an increase in burrows; these small spaces are usually one of the first priorities when finding a new home for an armadillo. When looking for tasty treats such as insects, armadillos will dig into the soil or grass of your yard, uprooting plants and leaving behind tell-tale holes. These are also more than just a nuisance, as well, since some of these holes can reach up to six feet wide, and go down to fourteen feet; depending on where these holes are situated, as well, homeowners have reported problems with their foundation's stability, as well as sinkholes appearing in the yards during heavy weather.

When looking for a new place to live, armadillos take into account a number of different factors. This can be where your problems become easy: if you take steps to avoid these factors, then you would be able to prevent most of the problems that can arise. Armadillos specifically will seek out shady places to begin digging their burrows under, such as under bushes or shrubs, as well as around woodpiles. All of these areas can quickly turn into an armadillo's favorite hiding place, especially when they are located near flowerbed or trees that can turn up an endless supply of food; clearing these areas out is the best recommended way to prevent the animals from taking over. You should also keep in mind that armadillos have an excellent sense of smell- often being able to smell prey from over eight meters deep in the soil- and will come for any fallen berries or fruit that might have fallen from nearby trees.

In addition to small preventative measures, there are many other steps that can be taken more permanently, in case one of the pests gets into your yard anyway, which will make the armadillos feel unwelcome, and more likely to leave. Many experts suggest finding a tall fence to install if you are having problems with armadillos in your yard; keep in mind, though, that since armadillos are excellent diggers, you should always make sure that the posts go deep into the ground. Many hardware stores, as well, sell small traps designed to fit over the top of an armadillo's burrow and snap shut when it runs in, containing the animal until you can properly take care of it.

There are many ways that an armadillo can cause havoc in your yard, leading to anything from small holes to cracks in your foundation. In an effort to make sure that armadillos do not get into your yard, wrecking what you have worked so hard on, take into account a number of small factors to prevent larger problems later.
