These destructive members of the anteater family are sure to cause havoc wherever they go. From tearing up lawns to tunneling and de-stablezing foundations and pools. If you are living with Palm Coast or Ormond beach armadillo damage, one thing is for sure, they have to go!

Seeing cone shaped holes in your yard? These are armadillo probe holes. They force their snout into the dirt to retrieve insects or roots. Cone shaped like their snout. Small digs around your yard that are not cone shaped are often squirrels burring nuts.
