Products For Controlling Armadillos

Ridding your property of a foraging Armadillo takes patience.  The most popular method is to trap the intruder, using a humane live trap.  See instructions below on how to set up your Armadillo trap.
If you do not want to invest in a professional trap you can first try to kill the food source of the animal by broadcasting a good pesticide over the area where the Armadillo forages for insects, grubs and worms.  There are also repellents available that contain all natural ingredients.  For tough animal problems, you can combine your pesticide application with your animal repellent.

Pesticide Application -- Spray lawn with Demon EC, Permethrin Pro or Tempo SC; apply product with hose-end sprayer.  You will need 1Ż ounces Permethrin Pro concentrate per 1,000 square feet of lawn.  Each 240 mil. bottle of Tempo SC will treat about an acre.  Repeat application should be made two weeks later.

Applying Repellents -- Not many animal repellents are actually labeled for armadillos but are labeled for use against "burrowing animals."  Materials that have been used in the past are granular castor products and liquid castor oil.

Combining Pesticide Application with Repellents -- Make two applications of Permethrin Pro (2 weeks apart); wait 5 days; apply your repellents.

Trapping -- Use the Safeguard Raccoon Trap or Universal Armadillo Trap to remove unwanted Armadillos from lawns, gardens, orchards, golf courses and other areas.  Bait your trap with overripe fruit (such as apples or bananas,) earthworms held in thin netting or panty hose materials.  These traps are more effective when "wings" are added to direct the Armadillo into the trap (see illustration below).  Set the traps in the area where the damage is occurring, for example, around the house, in the flower garden, or in the vegetable garden.  The trap can be used to capture and relocate armadillos, raccoons, stray cats and other small to medium animals.  However, the wire mesh is too large to hold rats.  For rats and squirrels, use the live rat trap.
