Many of Virginia'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 Virginia'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 Fairfax 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 Annandale animal control for wildlife issues.

Annandale Wildlife Removal Tip: What is an armadillo's mating habits? When do they have babies? How do they raise their young?

Armadillo's mating habits are one of the oddest things about this little armored creature. Typically, solitary creatures, the armadillo will only meet others of its species during the mating season, or during unusually cold weather in seek of warmth. This common isolation, while it should not be conducive to successful mating, can end up helping the armadillos.

Typically, armadillos have a mating season of between two and three months; these times can be different depending on the hemisphere that the armadillo is living in- with the Northern Hemisphere having their mating season from July to August, and the Southern Hemisphere having it from November to January, often after a long mating ritual between the female and male.

The mating ritual of armadillos, as well, is just another quirky thing about them. Unlike many other species, the armadillo has a rather shy way of going about beginning the ritual- yet are quite aggressive when ending it, or showing prospects that they are not interested. During this courtship ritual, the male will stay within a few meters of the female he is attracted to, often waiting until she has shown her interest. When the female starts to show interest, the male will get closer, sniffing the females' carapace, as well as her genitalia. If the female likes this show of interest, then she will begin to make 'chucking' sounds, and will flip and wag her tail at her prospective mate. If she is not interested in the male, however, then she will often become hyper-aggressive, scratching and biting at him until he leaves her alone.

When the female has picked her mate, and the two have intercourse, more strange things about the armadillo and its mating habits come up. Even though the female might get pregnant at the beginning of the mating cycle, she will often hold off implantation for up to four months. Many scientists speculate that this is an effort on biology's part to ensure the babies are born in the spring- typically a time of great abundance. One egg is fertilized at a time with armadillos- as with most warm-blooded mammals- but will eventually split into four zygotes, each identical to the other and attached at one placenta.

At birth, armadillos are only three ounces and have a soft, leathery exterior shell, which will harden within a couple of weeks. The quadruplets will open their eyes and be able to walk a few short hours after birth, and will stay in the burrow with their mother for about three months, drinking her milk. After this time, they will fully leave the nest at between six months and one year of age.
