ARMADILLOS!

Post  littlejo on Tue Aug 25, 2015 11:45 am

Well, I found pickle worms in my cukes as I was trying to make pickles this weekend. I went out this am to put out some BT and found an armadillo had dug up most of the isles and part of the beds! I searched on here and found no entries for armadillos, so, has anyone had them, or figured out how to get rid of them.  For your info it is illegal in SC  to trap then and move them to another area, unless I take them to another state that will accept them!

Thanks, Jo Ann

If you can't trap it, maybe you can "chase" back to Georgia. At the family reunion last week, the Missouri folks said they now have them.

Seems like all I can do is pray that the Old Farmers Almanac is right! We are predicted to have a long hard winter, with a white Christmas!

Here's hoping for a cold winter. I have heard they can be real nasty.

'dillo be gone

Post  Rolling Stone on Tue Aug 25, 2015 5:56 pm

Jo Ann -

If physical removal is not an option then the best bet is to make them want to leave.

In that case use their super-keen sense of smell against them.
An odor that either worries them (predator urine) or irritates them (ammonia) sprayed on the aisle-way mulch may encourage the critters to go elsewhere.

Dog hair spread around, and into, the entrance to an armadillo's den will serve as an "unwelcome" mat to their staying in the area.

These have worked at one time or another in our Florida lawns and gardens, and with varying degrees of success. Good luck.

After a long dry spell, we are now in a spell of at least once a day rain. So, anything that melts/gets distroyed with water is a lost cause ex: cayenne, mothballs.

I opted for Repels All. It supposedly repels all types of wild animals, deer, squirrels, opossum, etc, and most humans!!  I sprinkled it in all the isles and outside of the garden fence about 3 ft. It smells AWFUL! It would keep me out of the garden if I didn't have to go in to harvest beans, cukes, peppers. I need to plant carrots, beets, broc. (peas are up) spinach, mustard etc. but I think I'll wait to see if this works. I haven't found a den yet.
