About Pest Animal Baton Rouge and Our Services:
Many people probably don't consider the Baton Rouge armadillo to be much of a pest problem, but the truth is
that these creatures can cause as much problem to your home and property as any raccoon, squirrel
or fox. Most Louisiana armadillos that are encountered in the United States are about two feet long, and have
nine bands of very tough exoskeleton around them. This not only allows the ability to tunnel and burrow,
but also makes them very difficult to try to harm or hurt.
The armadillo may seem like a harmless little weird animal that slowly jaunts around the deserts of Texas, but they are more a pest than you may imagine. They love to burrow, and that can mean destroying your property, eating your garden or farm crops, destroying your soil, or harming your pets with their sharp claws. If you find that you have a Baton Rouge armadillo problem, here are some things you can do to rid yourself of this albatross. The first thing to do is to try natural repellants that have been known to effectively cause the armadillo to flee. One of the best to use is cayenne peppers. You can spread this around your home, garden or property. The Louisiana armadillo sniffs the pepper and it immediately irritates them and they flee. Yes, you can buy commercial repellants, but you should know that many use cayenne pepper as the base of their product. You might as well start with the thing that works.
You can also look at purchasing a predator urine to try to scare away the armadillo. Predator urine is a natural way to tell the armadillo to stay away. They are afraid that the predator may be lurking about and don't want to take the risk of endangering themselves, so they will flee. You should be aware that urine can have a very strong odor, so you may find that many others don't want to come near your Louisiana home.
If you have a dog, it is a good idea to leave your dog outside as much as you can. The smell of the dog can be a deterrent all by itself, but a noisy dog can be even more effective. Your neighbors may not like a barking dog, but neither will the Baton Rouge armadillo. There are great traps you can purchase that will capture the armadillo. Once captured you can simply pick up the trap and take the armadillo somewhere else to let it go. These traps work by being kind of V-shaped. As the armadillo walks in the trap gets narrower until it cannot get out. They work quite well. If you are the truly adventurous type then you can always run out to try to scare the Louisiana armadillo away. This will work, but to be on the safe side make sure you wear very thick gloves. Armadillos can be bitter little creatures, and you want to protect yourself if needed. A simple push away can do the trick a lot of times.
