This is how they dig for food.

Customer Armadillo Email: Saw your site and had a few questions. I am somewhat hard to reach during the day due to work, until after 5PM, so thought I would give email a shot. Overview: I have 3-4 Armadillos living under my pool. They are feeding off of my nonexistent lawn because I live next to a foreclosure with no yard and the bugs have taken over mine too. After reading a bunch on Armadillos, I believe the location is not bad for placing traps as it is in a corner between the garage and pool walls, which limits the entry points. I can send a picture or two if it helps with pricing. My address is below my name.

My questions are: How many trips to you estimate it might take to capture them all? How do you know you have them all when you are done? With my lawn bug infested what will stop them from returning, short of replacing the lawn, but still can't control my neighbors? Any suggestions on replacing the dirt under my pool that has been dug out? Unfortunately, I know there are more armadillos living next door and across the street, which is an issue too, in terms of them moving over to my yard. In summary, my main concern is the possible damage they can be doing under my pool. I would like them gone, but won't replace the lawn until I get new neighbors that treat theirs (I have replaced it every year for 5 years with same result, no lawn left.) What would you recommend based on this info? Sorry for all the questions, and thanks in advance. Look forward to hearing from you. Thanks, Mike

My Answer: I can catch all the armadillos in one trip. If you have future armadillo problems, I can trap and remove those animals as well. Although there's no way to keep them off of your property, other than a fence around the perimeter of the property, I can install exclusion barriers to keep them from digging under the pool.

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.
