Johns Creek wildlife control tip of the month:
Will repellents get an armadillo out of the porch or shed?
Repellents like moth balls, ammonia and predator urine are ineffective when used to get rid of armadillos, and therefore they will not get an armadillo out of the porch or shed. Johns Creek pest control Armadillos are serious diggers and they can tamper with the foundation of a house especially when they dig underneath the porches. It is therefore important to use other effective methods rather than repellents that will not drive them away immediately.
There are two effective ways of getting rid of armadillos out of the porch or shed:
• Trapping and relocation of the armadillo
• Prevention techniques by using exclusion fences
Trapping the armadillo under the porch -
You have to know that trapping an armadillo under the porch can be very tricky because of the limited space. You have to put in lots of effort in order to get the armadillo from the porch before they cause a lot of damages. There are different types of traps that you can use in this scenario; the most important aspect that will determine its capture is where you place the trap.
When the armadillo is under the porch, you have the upper hand of guiding it out and directly into your trap. You can do this by setting up temporary Johns Creek animal trapping fencing. The main function of the temporary fencing is to guide the animal to the exit that you have placed your trap.
There are certain instances where you will come across several burrows under the porch; in this case, you have to block majority of them and leave either one or two open burrows. If you have left out two exit routes, ensure that you have two traps that will be placed at each of the exit points.
Since they are nocturnal animals which imply that they are usually active during the night, you have to leave the traps overnight. Frequent checking of the traps is usually recommended to allow you to immediately relocate the armadillo once it is trapped. You have to relocate the trapped armadillo in an Johns Creek exterminator area that is safe but away from your home. You can alternatively inform the wildlife rehabilitators who are in a better position to retrieve and relocate the armadillo in a safer area.
Prevention techniques; Using exclusion fences -
Using exclusion fences is the best preventative measures that will prevent the Johns Creek animal control armadillos from getting into your yard and under the shed or porch. You can build the Johns Creek wildlife removal fence around the porch and shed and ensure that it is buried into the ground and has an outward bend of approximately ninety degrees.
Lethal traps also exist but it is very illegal to use them because they either harm or kill the armadillos which are against the wildlife rules and regulations.
The bottom line is that repellents are bogus and they do not help to get rid of armadillos.
