Get rid of your Armadillo

I often get questions on getting rid of Armadillos. Let me rephrase that, I often get asked to spray the yard for grubs and worms which in turn my customer says–will get rid of this destructive pest. Now I make my living treating bugs and this should be a welcome conversation for me but alas it usually ends up with me walking away without a check and a would be client sort of disappointed and perhaps a bit miffed.

As it goes in the world of animal trapping, Armadillos are not very dangerous like a snake or an alligator may be but they are sometimes the most frustrating of all. Just like other pests there are plenty of home remedies and myths about their control. The most popular is that people believe by spraying the yard for bugs you’ll be getting rid of the Armadillos food and it’ll go away. Selling a job with this line of thinking would be so easy because people already believe this approach will work. The problem is, I like sound sleep at night and if I sold you a bug job in the hopes of chasing Armadillos I wouldn’t get much of it. Having said this there is a product you can spray to get rid of Armadillos but it won’t do a thing about killing bugs. Take a quick minute and watch my video and see what this all natural product can do and why it’s so effective.

  • I just saw a show this week and they were eating those things. I don’t think so, would be my answer!@

  • Road kill!I found out from a trapper here in Fla. that it is the law to kill them (humanely of course) after you trapped them and that it was illegal to take them out in the woods as I suggested on the video——E-GadI looked the law up and indeed it said to euthanize them OR you could trap and release it on the ‘contiguous’ property. What’s up with THAT? So I catch the thing and then let it go in my neighbors lawn? You’re a pro from Florida, ever heard of this?
