Armadillo running in a field.

Customer Armadillo Email: David, I read your info about armadillo and I am not a violent person but believe me I have had it with those creatures. They destroy my vegetable garden, my flowers and pretty much my lawn. I realize they are looking for worms and I probably raise the best worms around because everything I grow is grown organically and the worms are plentiful. I have tried the trap treatment and was able to trap eight. They keep coming and destroying everything in their paths. There must be some product on the market to turn them away. If you know of anything please let me know. I know God didn't make any mistakes when he created our world but believe me He came close when the armadillo was created. Thank you for any suggestion you might have. Freeda, New Hebron, Ms.

My Answer: Ha! Well, there's no such thing as an armadillo repellent. The only solution is trapping and removal of these near-mistakes.

The Nine-Banded Armadillo is definitely an unusual creature. They are not native to anywhere in the United States. They were introduced from Central and South America. This nocturnal creature actually sleeps about 20 hours per day, inside a large burrow that it dug. It has several such burrows, and if you're concerned about dillos on your property, there's a good chance you've already noticed a big armadillo hole dug out near your house. This animal emerges at night and forages for insects, primarily underground earthworms and grubs. They can dig up a lot of dirt in one night, and you may have noticed your nice yard or landscaping dug full of small holes. There are many interesting facts regarding this mammal, such as the fact that mothers always give birth to quadruplets, so if you want to learn more, please read my How To Get Rid of Armadillos page.
