Releasing an Armadillo Back into the Wild - Nature 104

We have been seen a burrow hole in our yard. One of our neighbors tell us that she saw an armadillo.

Another day, the neighbor has observed Armadillos went under the fence, then cross our driveway, then cross the street to her yards.

How to discourage Armadillos to come and to dig holes in our yards?

Some neighbors suggested to use Armadillo Scram, a repellent to deter Armadillos to burrow or damage yards, gardens, lawn or landscapes.

Other neighbors also recommended to use cayenne pepper either sprinkled or mixed with water, and then to be sprayed on our yards or flowerbeds or bed covers (pine straw / bark).

Unfortunately, both Armadillo Scram and Cayenne pepper just work for about 30 days, the Armadillos come back to our yards.

The wildlife office suggested to put a trap. Yes, we got one, then based on the recommends from wildlife department, we released the Armadillo back into the wild, quite far from our neighborhood.

Have you seen this animal in the nature?

  10. Aquí en Colombia los cazadores lis han ido acabando o se han ahuyentado monte arriba. Para algunos es un plato exquisito.

  17. Hello,
    The Armadillos are cool critters, but I would not want one near my house.
    I have heard some horror stories of armadillos getting inside or under houses. Great photos. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Take care, have a great day and happy new week.
