  • Scratching Noises in Your Attic?
  • Unwanted Wildlife on Property?
  • Problem Bird or Bat Infestation?
  • Digging Lawn or Under House?
  • We Can Solve It!
Many of Washington'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 Washington'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 Pierce 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 Lakewood animal control for wildlife issues.

Lakewood Wildlife Removal Tip: How do you know if you have an armadillo under your shed or porch?

An armadillo is a smallish animal that is found in various parts of America. They enjoy a tropical climate and less inclined to live in areas that are too cold. They dig elaborate tunnels to live in. They are known as pest animals as they cause major destruction to your yard by digging into it.

How do you know if they are there?

Armadillos are nocturnal creatures and you are less likely to see them out during the day. They are very good at hiding their burrows, and it may be difficult to determine if they are actually there. If you find a large mound of sand close to your porch or shed it may be an indication that an armadillo had burrowed under it. You will also hear them at night. They also leave small holes all over your yard while looking for insects to eat.

Why do they burrow?

1. The main reason that they will burrow under your shed or porch is to build a nest. They do this in order to have a safe place to hide from predators.
2. They need a warm place during winter.
3. The female needs a place to deliver her babies. Armadillos are pregnant for about four months. They will give birth to between 1 to 4 babies and will need a place to keep them safe.

Why is it a problem for you?

The elaborate burrows that they dig remove a lot of dirt. The removal of this dirt impact on the stability of your shed or porch. If there is nothing for it to rest on it may collapse. This is especially dangerous if the burrow underneath has collapsed in on itself. If you are on the porch when it collapses it may endanger your safety.

How to get rid of an armadillo

One of the best ways to get rid of them is to utilize their strong sense of smell. You can do this by purchasing predator urine and spraying it around the area that they seem to be burrowing in. They have very poor eyesight so placing things in your yard to scare them with have little to no effect.

You can also exclude them by ensuring that there are no entrances to your property that they can use.
