These pests carry rabies and easily break into attics, one of their favorite places to roost. Surprisingly, they only need a gap less than half an inch wide to get in.

Skunks Are Digging Holes in Yard
Armadillos are relatively recent immigrants to the American south and southeast. Their population has spread rapidly in the few decades they've been in the United States, and they have already taken over nearly all of the non-desert areas of the southern half of the country. Most commonly seen as road kill, armadillos are also pests that can destroy extensive amounts of outdoor space with the digging and burrowing they do to search for food.
The most common variety found in the United States is the nine-banded armadillo. They generally weigh between 12 and 22 pounds. They are protected by a hard outer armor that looks a bit like a shell. They have long claws that are optimized for digging, which they extensively do in their search for insects, their main source of food. 'Dillos have powerful noses that can smell an insect through 8 inches of soil, and they're not shy about chasing after a meal. They are mostly nocturnal animals who live in burrows when they are not out digging up insects.
Remove Your Problem
It can be difficult for an amateur to keep their yards safe from these insect hunters. Fences are easy for them to burrow underneath, and scent deterrents either wash away or take excessive effort to properly implement. Your best bet for removing and excluding armadillos from your yard or home is to call a professional pest control team. These wildlife extraction experts will be able to safely remove and relocate your pesky armored intruder. Once your pesky visitor is gone, your pest control experts can make recommendations on how to successfully keep any future intruders out of your yard and away from your house.

How to Keep Skunks out of My Garbage Cans
Late this afternoon, when I went out to walk our puppy one of the neighbors came over to tell me this news... Apparently a bobcat has been sited within our development around one of our retention ponds, at the rear of several neighbors gardens.
The Florida Bobcat (Lynx rufus floridanus) is known to be a warm-blooded, solitary, and territorial predator mammal. Although not as big as the Florida Panther the bobcat is usually around the size of a medium-sized dog. The bobcat is dark brown with black spots and striped bars which are most visible along their sides and legs. The backs of their ears are white with a black out line, their tails shorter having a white tip. Their under parts are also generally white with their fur being short, soft and dense. It should be noted that the bobcat has razor sharp teeth and retractable claws just like the house cats.
So what do you do if you see one...
According to the Florida Wildlife Commission they should be left well alone as they have an unpredictable disposition... remember those razor sharp teeth and retractable claws mentioned earlier?
Refer the animal to your local county Animal Control Services Department rather than risk incident.
As we have said previously, as 'man' encroaches on these animals lands, we are likely to hear of more incidents with Florida's carnivores.

It was a hazy night, dimly lit by the light of the full moon. A thick mist hung ominously over the graveyard. Headstones could be seen peeking through the sultry fog, glowing softly in the moon light. All was quiet.
Suddenly, from one of the graves, a sound could be heard. It started softly at first, then ascended into a loud digging, grumbling, then a scampering sound! Had the dead arisen? Had someone been buried alive? Was this a scene from a horror movie? No! It was none other than the armadillo, digging around, looking for insects to eat.
One interesting fact about armadillos is that they have been found to carry the leprosy bacterium. They are not known to transmit it to humans, but they can carry it. If you think that you have an armadillo problem, it is important to contact professionals. It can be difficult to remove these stubborn creatures, but there are people who are specially trained for this task.
