The armadillo is a burrower. It's extra sharp claws allow it to quickly dig under the surface. The armadillo also hunts for it's prey, mainly insects and grubs, underground. And while they are known to demolish gardens and whole yards, in search for food. They will, at times, be extremely helpful to a farmer or gardener. They hunt and eat many types of insects and grubs which keeps your garden safe. But this can often spin out of control, because the armadillo may start to create bigger and bigger burrows and tunnels, just in search of food and shelter. They often live in a massive burrow, or several burrows together. On average, a burrow can measure a 8 inches wide, 7 feet deep, and an astounding 25 feet long! This is why the armadillo should be removed from your Atlanta home or business.
Armadillos have been known to live up to twenty years, but on average live from five to twelve years. After a 2-3 month mating period from July to August, a fertilized egg will often not be implanted for up to 4 months, simply to avoid the birth during a bad time. This one egg, over a period of another four months, will split into 4 separate embryos. The armadillo normally gives birth to four identical pups each time it gives birth! An armadillo will give birth to at least 50 pups within her lifetime, and several of these pups doing the same.
The fast reproduction rate, coupled with the small amount of creatures that actually prey on the armadillo has allowed the armadillo population to explode out of control. In the late 1800s, armadillos in America where only found in Florida and states around Mexico. By 2000 armadillos where common in Arkansas, Georgia, Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Oklahoma. Now a decade later, armadillos are being found in southern Illinois and Indiana. It is believed that they will continue to spread to the entire east coast, but not too north because of their poor tolerance to the cold.
