Colorado Springs Armadilo Removal ~ (719) 338-8111
Colorado Springs Armadillo Removal is a common request in Colorado Springs and it’s neighboring towns of Larkspur, Woodland Park, Black Forest, Monument, Palmer Lake and Castle Rock and communities throughout EL Paso County. Armadillos can become a large nuisance. They can bring about many problems for you and your property. The animal itself, known for its leathery, armored shell, can become quite large, weighing up to 22 pounds and growing to 2 feet in length.
Armadillos, on average, live to about 6 to 12 years of age. After the 3 month mating period from July to August, a fertilized egg may not be implanted for up to four months. This practice developed simply to avoid birth during an unfavorable time of the year. This single egg, over four months, will split into 4 separate, yet identical embryos. Amazingly, the armadillo normally gives birth to four identical pups each time it gives birth! In it’s lifetime, an armadillo can give birth to at least 50 pups, with several of these children doing the same. This extremely fast reproduction rate is allowing the population of armadillos within the States to grow out of hand.
The armadillo is a burrowing animal, living underground. It sleeps, eats, and raises its young under the surface. Its extra sharp claws allow it to quickly escape into the depths. While known for occasionally destroying gardens, the armadillo is often helpful to gardeners, eating whole yards of the more damaging grubs and insects that normally preside there. However, in their hunt for insects and grubs, their burrows can grow to outrageous proportions. The average burrow can measure 7 feet deep, 8 feet wide, and an astounding 25 feet long! This fact alone is why armadillos should be immediately removed from the property of a home or place of business.
