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 White Plains animal control for wildlife issues.

White Plains Wildlife Removal Tip: Do armadillos make good pets?

A common sight among the highways of the Southern United States, the armadillo- Spanish for ‘little armored one'- is still one of the most enigmatic, yet fascinating, creatures in the animal kingdom. Mostly due to their unique status as mysterious, many curious pet owners wonder if they would make good pets or look to finding one to keep in their home. However, for a variety of different reasons, these animals might be a bigger problem than most people would ever think.

As a note, while some armadillo pet owners report having little to no issues with keeping one of these animals, they do admit that they require intensive training, including litter box training. Armadillos also require a specific type of habitat that owners need to set up inside of the home. Most of these owners also suggest never getting a baby armadillo, as they are much more fragile and susceptible to disease than an adult.

In the wild, armadillos are a solitary creature, often only seeking out the company of others when looking to either mate or, in some rare situations, in search of warmth. However, when put into the wrong circumstances, this solitary behavior can cause them to become much more aggressive. Without proper training, this aggression can lead the animal to attack, with can lead to scratches or bites. The armadillos' claws, which are used in the wild to dig holes, and are extremely sharp, can cause serious damage to other pets, as well as owners. Most armadillos, as well, are known for carrying multiple infectious diseases, such as leprosy, rabies, and even tapeworms, which can be transmitted through bites and scratches- or, in some circumstances, even touch.

In addition to their solitary behavior, armadillos require a special habitat to thrive as domesticated animals. In the wild, these animals will dig burrows deep into the ground, giving them a source of food, a safe place to hide, and darkness for them to sleep during the day. These burrows- when made in captivity- can often lead to enormous holes, between seven and eight feet wide; in a domesticated sense, though, this means trouble for the homeowner if the little ones get out and play.

Armadillos are one of the most unique animals in the animal kingdom for a variety of reasons- including one that makes them a slightly more finicky pet to have than a cat or dog. Armadillos have one of the lowest natural body temperatures in the entire animal kingdom, as well as the highest metabolism and the lowest body fat percentage, of any animals. This means, though, that the armadillo has selective environmental conditions required to live, mostly staying in desert areas, as well as grasslands and other typically hot areas.

These animals might seem cute and cuddly when seen from the road, leading many more adventurous pet owners to wonder if they are able to be kept as pets. While some pet owners report having no problems, though, the cons with keeping this wild animal in your home seem to be more than the pros.
