Armadillo removal in Slidell is about like any other area around New Orleans. We setup traps directly over the hole and when they come out we have them! Armadillos in Slidell generally go under the slab of the home because most of the homes in that area are slab homes - meaning the house is on the ground and not raised off of the ground like a camp might be in Houma, LA. Now there is always the exception but I am speaking generally.
Armadillos can be cause for alarm in that they COULD void your termite warranty. Just like if you dig around your foundation and you break the termite barrier installed by your termite guy - the armadillo is digging too! One good thing, is that they east termites - the downside is what are they doing in YOUR yard then?
I can do a full assessment and let you know what it will cost however the following lists some general costs for armadillo removal.
Costs: We charge 165 for an inspection and 385 for trapping but we have charged up to 650 for a more extensive job! Also, to fix and fill the holes do NOT use sand - you want Erosion control rock!
We typically charge about 75 dollars to fill the average armadillo hole but to keep them out for good you may want a rock border around the house. Jobs like that run about 12-2400 depending on the level of difficulty and the amount of linear footage involved.
