Many of South Carolina'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 South Carolina'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 Horry county animal services for assistance.

Conway Wildlife Removal Tip: Will a high pith sound deterrent machine work against armadillos?

What are armadillos?

Armadillos are omnivorous mammals that have bony plate like covering on their bodies. They are known to be the only mammals that have such shells on their bodies.

Armadillos vary widely when it comes to colors covering their bodies and their sizes. They come in colors such as black, grey, red while others are yellowish in color. The bony shells on their bodies is most commonly uses as a protective gadget but it happens that not all armadillos have the ability of encasing themselves in the shells.

How sound deterrent machines work

Below is a list of key points explaining how sound deterrent machines work;

1. They are electric generated devices that are known to emit high frequencies of sounds designed to frighten, push away or injure animals that interfere with comfort stay of human beings.
2. The machines are powered from different power sources such as batteries or even direct electric power from sockets.
3. The sound produced by these machines are beyond the hearing capacity of humans and hence cannot affect the ability of human beings to hear.
4. High pitch sounds commonly known as ultrasounds are known to distract armadillos around one's premises.
5. High frequency sounds are known to impact fear on animals. Armadillos usually get annoyed or confused and this makes them flee the premises they may have invaded. The armadillos are prevented from breeding, communicating with each other or even getting any food from human premises.

Are high pitch deterrent machines effective for use against armadillos?

1. For beginners, the high pitch sounds may scare away armadillos but as expected, the animals will get used to the sounds. As a result armadillos will end up not showing any signs of response to the high pitch sound.
2. In the case of need for food, armadillos will always keep on invading areas they are familiar with for food even without noticing the high pitch sound. They are said to take such sounds as normal natural sounds in the environment. All animals need food for survival and hence they would do anything to ensure that their bellies are full despite threats posed to them.
3. This enormous ability of armadillos to ignore high frequency sounds is a clear proof that the use of high frequency sound deterrents against them is not a reliable and effective method of deterring armadillos.

Are there other methods of deterring armadillos?

The answer to the above question is yes. Below are some of such methods that one may apply in case these animals are invading their premises:

1. Use of high beam lights
2. Eliminating armadillo's food sources
3. Use of liquid repellants
4. Use of automated sprinklers
5. Establishing stout fences
6. Use of cage traps
