What damage can armadillos do?
Armadillos are really unique animals. Usually, they are not a problem for people, but occasionally they can be a major pest in suburban and agricultural areas. I have gotten lots of mail from people asking me what they can do to get ’dillos to leave their gardens and lawns alone! In their voracious search for insects and grubs to eat, armadillos can dig up quite a bit of land in a night.
What bait should I use for armadillos?
Bait the trap with fresh fruit or earthworms. Worms probably will work the best. If you use worms, put them in a nylon stocking. This will let the smell out without letting the worms escape.
Where should I place armadillo traps?
Set the trap in the travel lanes or near the den - if you know where it is.. You can do this by placing small pieces of bait leading up to the trap. You can also define a path by placing logs or wood up to the trap will also help.
